4.25/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours an opaque dark brown with minimal head and lacing.

Aroma is of peanuts, sweet malt, some salty notes, and booze.

Tastes like a Reese's cup. Very nice. I don't much like peanut butter but this is very nice. A touch of booze on the finish. Not too sweet, not too dark. Delightful.

More carbonation than I'd imagined there being. Not too much though. Creamy but not extremely thick. Very nice.

Overall this beer is great. Didn't have high expectation for it but I was pleasantly surprised. Worth the try.

3.88/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Poured from bottle to snifter, the beer produced a finger of tan head made of mostly fine bubbles with a few larger ones. The head fell fairly quickly (under 30 seconds) and left a dusting on top along with a ring around the edge. The beer is a very dark brown with some ruby highlights in the cheers and very clear when back-lit. Alcohol legs are noticeable when agitated and the foam kicks up a little more also.

S: A mild toasted nuts and peanut aroma on the first whiff. Also getting milk chocolate, almonds, sweet caramel and light fruity esters. Very low hop aroma, just an earthy, spice that sits below the candy bar aroma.

T: Chunky peanut butter taste, true to its name, on the first sip. Balance is on the malt side with it coming of sweet but not overly so. Almonds, peanuts, toasted pecans, milk chocolate, toast and toffee flavors all coming through in various intensities. Peanut is defiantly the dominant, slightly artificial tasting. Very low bitterness and almost no hop flavor coming through. A slightly grainy flavor at the end that leaves the pallet slightly dry.

M: Moderate body with carbonation on the lower side. Low alcohol warming.. surprising for the ABV. Maybe its a mental thing but it feels like a slick, gritty peanut butter spoonful after about 2-3 mins without a sip.

O: Unique beer that lived up to its name. Malts shine and the peanut butter flavor blends well. I don't know that I would get it again, but glad to try it.

Alabama

4.49/5  rDev +7.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance is a dark brown/black color with zero head.
Aroma is like no other. Dry roasted peanuts up front with hints of milk chocolate. It smells like a Reese's cup.
Flavor is of dark and milk chocolate dominant with dark fruit and lingering peanut butter flavor at the very end that sticks around til the next sip.
Simple but complex flavors in this.
Mouthfeel is bubbly, doesn't coat your mouth totally which keeps you going back for more.
The 12 abv is extremely well hidden, you cannot pickup any alcohol at all.
I could hurt myself on these!
