Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Black, with dark brown tint. 14 head with decent lacing.

Smell - Peanut butter, Chocolate, Roasted malts. Simple but smells good.

Taste - Much like the aroma, starts out with a smooth, peanut butter and chocolate bite. The pb is more of a natural flavor, not the fake sugared flavor of something like a jiffy pb. The carbonation gives it a little milk stout like feel to it. Chocolate ties it together along with some malts.

Mouthfeel - PB coats the tongue. Palate gets malts and chcoclate along with the remaining pb. Aftertaste is pb, mild chocolate and malty.

Overall - Simple, one-two punch of pb and chocolate. Smooth, tasty, yet not overboard sweet. A nice flavorful drink that features one of my favorite things in the world, peanut butter!

a - poured a one finger thick, creamy tan head into a snifter that left good lacing throughout. the body was dark black with brown edges.
s - peanut butter is subtle but dominates if that makes sense, some chocolate does come through. the peanut butter is very pleasant and just the right amount.
t - tastes like peanut butter pie. so drinkable and balanced.
m - creamy and smooth mouthfeel.
o - i haven't had many peanut butter beers but of the ones i have had this is by far the best.

Poured a dark brown color with a thin tan head that quickly dissipated into a thin ring of bubbles. Big chocolate and peanut butter/nutty flavors throughout both the aroma and taste. This beer reminded me of a peanut butter snack food that I used to eat as I kid, but I just couldn't put my finger on exactly what it was. It was a medium body with some carbonation. Some stickiness lingered on the lips afterwards. Overall, a tasty treat and it was a great surprise as an extra in a trade!

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.
