Delicious, pours a nice dark black. Minimal head on my pour. The nose is a nice peanut-buttery chocolate smell, with more of a faint chocolate taste in the back of the mouth after drinking. It's smooth. Thin feeling when drinking. Really enjoyable.

Bottle shared at the monthly bottle share held at Flask Fine Wines in Studio City, CA.

Pours a murky dark orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, chocolate syrup, and peanut butter aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa powder and peanut butter flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a high level of carbonation with a crisp and prickly mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a great chocolate peanut butter aroma, but the flavors are muddled and the carbonation level is too high in my opinion.

Serving type: bottle.
