3.38/5 rDev -10.3%
12 oz bottle into a wine glass.
Appearance: Pours a very dark brown color. The head is two fingers high, and lighter tan in shade. Retention is fairly decent. The creamy texture leaves behind webbed lacing on the glass. (3.5)
Smell: Oh yeah, this smells great. Tons of milk chocolate, tons of roasted nuts, lesser dark chocolate, lesser general roast, and a goodly amount of hazelnut. These kinds of beers are always the same: killer on the nose, meh on the taste buds. I anticipate the same deal here, but wow does it smell great anyways. (4.25)
Taste: Aye, it's a definite step down. It opens up nicely with dark chocolate flavor, while the back end is loaded with notes of roast, nuts, and roasted nuts. I'm definitely getting a hazelnut vibe, albeit an artificial one. And therein lies the problem: it blatantly has a chemical tone to it. At least the gist of this beer (chocolate and peanut butter) is shown off nicely. (3)
Mouthfeel: Rather thin for the style, with decent carbonation poking through the semi-creamy body. As such, it goes down easily, even with the sweet linger. (3.5)
Overall: I could just smell this all day. Tasting it, though, is a different matter entirely. It's EXACTLY the way I anticipated it to be: smells awesome, tastes meh. This has a definite mainstream appeal, so I can't be too hard on it. (3.25)
3.38/5: Worth a try, just don't expect it to taste like it smells

Well this is confusing new to this weird rating system. Guess reviewing days are over :( Looks like a porter. Smells like it should I would say stale peanut butter cups with a dash of earthy hops. Taste is the same, porter like with added resse's cups. Brew is pretty much like it says it is, just a little too weird for me to want to have again.
