A - Poured a dark brown/black with a 1/2 inch tan head. Looks nice.

S - Malty, Smoky and Sweet. No hops at all.

T - Follows the smell. Very sweet, and smoky. Don't really get the peanut butter, because it tastes like a smoked porter. Hints of vanilla and chocolate. Like the smell, I don't get any hops at all, and for 50+ IBU's I was hoping some would come through.

M - A bit dry up front, but then leaves a sticky mouthfeel. Reminds me of a watered down syrup.

O - A bit disappointed. It's not bad, but not what I was expecting. Not sure why it tastes so smoky to me. It's pretty sweet, but would be good paired with BBQ, I'd imagine.

Did not expect too much here, so I was neither disappointed nor surprised. Deep dark pour into a chilled pint glass. Good head, lots of tiny bubbles, and decent lacing. Nose is perhaps the best thing going on here -- more chocolate, toffee, caramel, vanilla, coffee notes than peanut butter. On the palate, the same flavors dominate, although peanut butter does appear. Reminds me a little of the taste you have in your mouth at the end of a baseball game after eating a bag of roasted peanuts (which is also slightly bummer). But the biggest problem with this beer is the absence of character in the mouthfeel -- it's just a little too thin. Nevertheless, glad I tried it.
