I have to say I really dislike the nose on this beer. It smells like dehydrated peanut dust with a roasted tone that just makes it kind of, eh. Flavor, unfortunately, tastes like globs of peanut butter that is too highly processed with some chalky cocoa on there as well.

This doesn't work for me. Not smooth. Not pleasant to drink. Tastes completely artificial. I think it's going to end up being a drain pour. I think I just don't care for anything from this brewery. At least nothing that I can recall.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours a nice black color with a brownish head, leaves some lacing

Smell: Nice peanut butter up front, like peanut butter cereal, then chocolate

Taste: Again, peanut butter cereal and chocolate, roasted malts, earthy hops. Not too sweet either

Mouthfeel: A good light to medium body, good carbonation

Overall: Fantastic brew... will gladly pick up more of this. It is a bit different of flavoring, but something I could drink every day.

Poured into a beer tulip. Pretty much no head at all. Smell is amazing, probably this beer's best characteristic; overwhelming chocolate, coffee, toasted malts and peanut butter, with a touch of butterscotch.

After the incredible aroma, the taste was a bit of a letdown. While the aroma is extremely powerful, the taste is light and reserved. It initially hits with malts and coffee, which fades quite rapidly into a lingering toasted peanut flavor. Almost no hop flavor at all. The peanut stays in the mouth for a minute or so. Not a whole lot in the way of chocolate flavor.

Overall, the beer tastes good, but doesn't live up to expectations. The initial flavor fades much too rapidly, and lacks complexity overall. Good, but not great.
