Draft at The Blue Dog in Lansdale, PA.

Pours a dark black and opaque with a one finger beige head that quickly settles into a thin, lasting ring.  Spotty lacing left behind.

I don't know how they do it but Funky Buddha nailed another aroma.  Crazy nutty, chunky peanut butter along with sweet and roasted chocolate notes.  Hints of nutella, silky chocolate and roasted peanut but still has the feel of a brown ale.  Roasted and sweet malt notes with dark chocolate, toast, toffee and oatmeal.   They really nailed the chocolate and especially peanut butter characteristics while retaining the brown ale elements.  

Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a strong chocolate covered roasted peanut flavor that's countered by roasted malt, dark chocolate, toast, oatmeal and coffee bean.  It's amazing how the chocolate and peanuts stand out without turning it into an overly sweet dessert beer.  This could have easily turned into a cloying novelty beer but they remained true to the style, creating a really interesting experimental beer that's very flavorful and easy to drink.

Served on-tap at the Blue Dog. Reviewed from notes.

A - Pours pitch black with a small half finger tall tan head leaving spotty lace down parts of the glass.

S - Smells of intense peanut butter, milk chocolate, vanilla, toffee, caramel and mildly toasted grains. The PB is super strong, one of the strongest PB aromas I have come across.

T - Starts off with in intense combo of rich chunky peanut butter and warm milk chocolate. Hints of caramel, toffee, vanilla and a bit of grain help round things out but this one is dominated by the Chocolate and PB. Finish is sweet but not overpowering, lingering on the palate long after the finish.

M - Heavy body with moderate carbonation. Smooth feel from start to finish with tons of flavor. Goes a touch thin toward the end of the glass.

O - One of the best PB beers I have had. The flavors blend extremely well together and it is pretty easy to drink, it only really started to wear on me toward the end of the glass. Glad I made the drive down to try these.

This is an amazing peanut butter brown which blew my socks off! Appearance is grand, smell is peanut butter wonderful, and the taste is peanut butter forward with a chocolate finish. The mouthfeel is creamy and rich. Funky Buddha hit it on the head with this one! Cheers!
