12oz bottle poured into a snifter.
The beer pours an opaque dark brown, nearly black in color with about a finger of off white head that has moderate retention but yields no lacing. The aroma is incredibly peanut butter heavy, unlike anything I've ever encountered. Salty peanuts with just a bit of dark bitter chocolate behind it and a touch of dark grain. The flavors fall a bit short of the magnificent nose, bitter dark chocolate, that is a bit weak with some smooth grain and lingering salty peanut flavor, but it doesn't even come close to matching the nose. The body is a bit thin and highly carbonated, but coats the mouth well and has a nice creamy finish with just a bit of carbonated zip.
Verdict: Quite an interesting beer and certainly the best use of peanut butter or peanuts I've ever come across. The nose is really amazing but the rest of the beer falls a bit flat in comparison. Still, a solid choice for a dessert beer.
