Just not my cup of tea I guess. Props for being different, but I guess I just couldn't get over the in your face peanut butter taste. Smells great, but the coffee / PB hits the palate hard and is not subtle at all...if that is what they were going for....well, job well done. I guess I'd prefer this if it was a little more subtle and not so much in your face. Glad I found this on tap though cause I was looking at the 6er lately and was tempted to buy. Won't be revisiting this one.

Sweet Baby Jesus pours black into the glass with little to no foam. A small ring appears around the surface. No lace on the glass.
The aroma is sweet and candy like. Caramel and peanut butter dominate. Some dark chocolate is mixed in.
Each sip of this medium bodied beer is oily and soft with mild carbonation. The flavor is like a candy bar. Caramel and peanut butter blended with chocolate. It finishes dry and somewhat bitter with a hint of grass. Once gone the caramel and peanut butter lingers on the palate.
This is a beer best left for dessert. It tastes like a caramel peanut butter brownie. The peanut butter doesn't seem genuine. It's more like a powdered additive you'd put in pudding. Still, it's definitely interesting. Would go great with a chocolate cake.

I asked the bartender @ McMenamin's Tavern in Mount Airy (Philadelphia) which was his favourite beer on tap, and he recommended this one. Just 2 words: OH, WOW. A chocolate-peanut butter stout. Basically, this felt like I was drinking an alcoholic, fizzy peanut butter cup.
Appearance: Lovely, just lovely- deep, dark black.
Smell: To be honest, the smell didn't really hint too much as to what was coming.
Taste: Here's where I said OH, WOW. You get a bit of maltiness with just a hint of hops, but the dominant taste is of the chocolate and, yes, peanut butter. I would never have dreamed that this would work, but, WOW, does it ever.
Mouthfeel: Amazingly, this beer didn't have anywhere near the heavy mouthfeel that I'd expected, given the taste.
I'm not sure I'd want to drink too many of these at a time- despite the reasonable ABV, it's definitely a dessert beer, not a session one. But, I'll DEFINITELY be ordering another one next time I see it on tap.
