If you like peanut butter you'll dig this beer I enjoy it much more than its competitors like belching beaver peanut butter stout.

Very bitter chocolate, kinda like a dry Irish stout but more added flavor. The bitterness is not doing it for me it is a bit too hoppy for me.

poured from bottle into snifter

A: Pours very dark brown, almost black, with a thick tan head

S: Sweet chocolate and vanilla.

T: Chocolate and malt really coat the taste buds. Vanilla comes through. This is really a sweet drinker with a lot of desert.

M: Lighter for a stout and a very nice creamy mouthfeel.

Overall: This is a great beer if you like a lighter body stout, but with a good creamy mouthfeel. Excellent beer.

Good drinking beer and an easy drinking stout. Add the complexity of dark chocolate & peanut butter and it an all around good drinking beer once the weather cools off a little. The dark color may scare a few people off, it's not a heavy stout at all. Also the brewery itself uses all organic ingredients and it one of the top breweries here in San Diego.
