I really enjoyed the chocolate and peanut butter, both on the nose and its taste. However, I felt the base beer was lacking in flavor and consistency, limiting its overall rating.

Enjoyable in small quantities. I don't think I could drink more than one bottle in a sitting.

An excellent combination of roasty malts with peanut butter. The peanut butter is pronounced and adds to the flavor of the beer. One of the better beers I have had in some time.

Thinnish half finger head, doesn’t stick around long, a dusting across the surface, the lacing slides off in slippery sheets. Opaque dark brown liquid, turns to a rust orange near the surface which allows you to see how much chunky particulate there is inside, a few beads of bubbles visible. The nose is almost entirely peanut butter, some chocolate powder, has some roast but basically you might as well open a jar of Skippy and put your nose in it. Light to medium-bodied, carbonated attack prevents it from soaking into the mouth, weak finish. Here the peanut butter is just as strong, chocolate and maybe it is psychological but there’s also grape jelly. Burnt roastiness, lactose and challah bread along with sweeter nuts. Actually wish it was sweeter so it would have a clearer purpose when consumed. Lacks smooth flow and tends to gum up from front palate to rear. One trick pony that is fun once and that’s about it.
