this was all the talk last time I was down in MD... so I finally decided to break open a bottle and rate it
pitch black with a solid finger of cocoa head afloat, nice and sticky foam graces the sides of the glass, simple but good looking spot o'brew
smack in the jaw peanut butter, delicious liquid reeses peanut butter cups (even though I have been partial to reeses pieces since ET), slight malted chocolate notes lurk underneath the PB kick, super inviting
medium feel with a bit more carbonation than some porters, the peanut butter was not immediate but becomes stronger with each sip, I almost feel like I took a spoonful of PB and smeared it on my tongue, my mouth has that dry smack of fresh PB... really weird sensation in a brew (or maybe the smell is just tricking my brain?), the chocolate and hops sort of merge to give you a sweet bitterness (very slight but you can taste it).
very tasty, one of the best smelling beers I have checked out in some time, the peanut butter flavor is so spot on it is scary, this is worth seeking out for the experience of the PB alone
