3.79/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass

A: Poured very black in color with a good fingers worth of head that settles to a thin layer, with wonderful lacing from start to finish.

S: Wow... Peanut butter right upfront, then chocolate, Roasted malts and coffee. Really smells good.

T: Taste is right on with the smell... Peanut butter and chocolate right upfront maybe a little milk mixed in... I'm getting coffee bitterness mid palette. The finish smooth with a hint of peanut butter.

M: Pretty smooth and creamy but oddly thin.

O: Wow... Very interesting brew.... Peanut butter... Really.... Fantastic mix of flavors.... Reese Cup beer. Only down fall was it felt a little thin, but this brew is really worth looking for.

Sweet Baby Jesus pours a black color, with a small lacing head. There is a strong peanut butter aroma. The has a strong peanut butter flavor, with hints of chocolates, tastes like a peanut butter cup. Nice and creamy, no overpowering flavors. Overall a nice creamy well put together beer.
