3.88/5  rDev -7.4%
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.

Pours a dark brown color with no head whatsoever from this bottle. The aroma is peanut butter/roasted peanuts. It's not an overbearing aroma, but you definitely know what your smelling. My first taste was right out of the fridge and it was exactly like the aroma. I couldn't taste the alcohol at this temperature. As the beer warms, the alcohol comes out and warms the throat and stomach nicely. Medium body, not a ton of carbonation.

I was expecting this beer to be thicker, sweeter, and boozier, but I was pleasantly surprised. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer and will be drinking again soon.

3.89/5  rDev -7.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A-Pours a thick, oily brown color. A thin, tan head sits atop the beer. It slowly fades, leaving remnants along the glass.

S-A big, sweet, artificial peanut butter aroma. Sweet, toasted peanuts. Some fudge and sweet chocolate.

T-More like a peanut butter cup than actual peanut butter. They must be using a ton of flavor additives to get it to taste like this. It's super-sweet peanut butter with some dense chocolate.

M-Oily, full bodied. Alcohol is somewhat noticeable but I was surprised the ABV was this high. Nearly cloying.

O-Regardless of the tactics used to get this flavor, they nailed the peanut butter thing here. I actually grew to enjoy this beer as I took my time with it. I'm a peanut butter fiend so I shouldn't be surprised.
