I missed a few opportunities to have this beer in the past, but I was finally able to score a growler (thanks, Jeff!)

Split this with the wife (a big connoisseur of FB beers), and poured into a new white-logo FB snifter, and an OG white-logo FB snifter. Color was the darkest of browns, with an aggressive pour yielding just the tiniest of tan collars...carb was low after a few days in the growler. Full-blown peanut butter cup aroma wafted out as soon as I popped the cap, roasted malts, rich chocolate, no-nonsense peanut butter, with a sugary sweetness. Taste was great, even if not as sumptuous as the aroma. Roasty malts with a coffee-like bitterness, milk chocolate, toasted peanuts...peanut butter cup. Pretty much delivered exactly what was promised. Body was on the fuller side of medium, mouthfeel was smooth, but with a chocolaty grittiness. This did NOT drink like a brown ale, and I mean that in a good way. The sweetness of the beer was kept in check by the roast/toast, ensuring it was not cloying or too candy-ish. Very good overall, and probably the best pb beer I've had?

Thanks to rudzud for sharing.

Thick creamy rich but smaller head, fades pretty quickly little lacing, super dark brown almost black, nice legs.

Nose is a bit muted initially but then breaks through with nice peanut butter, little caramel brown sugar, sweet candy and toffee, some candy brown malts. Little booze and phenolic touch with its own very faint musty fruit skin, little nutty and light milk chocolate and choc powder.

Taste starts with that light booze and phenolic, little fruit skin phenol, flash of yeast as well, chewy brown malts, some spicy bitter hops. Mild syrupy sweet malt, little caramel brown sugar like. Peanut butter is there but not a ton, chocolate is super light like powdered chocolate milk. Finish is a bit booze and phenols, sticky too, but bleh aftertaste. A flash of tangy almost possible onset of infection.

Mouth is med bod, lots of carb, little syrupy.

Overall sad face, had some great potential esp for all the great Funky Buddha beers I've had, but this was underwhelming, possibly onset of infection, no real chocolate, some booze and phenols, etc. Not great.

Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice darker brown hue with a thin half finger mocha head that fades to leave light lacing.

S - Aromas of nice peanut butter and chocolate, fresh peanuts, cocoa nibs, nice sweet malt, faint caramel, impressive amount of peanut butter.

T - Taste is nice, though very boozy, phenols, yeast, peanut butter, light chocolate, malts, light sweet fruit, more booze, finish is more phenols, possible infection.

M - Mouthfeel is over carbonated, by a lot, very boozy.

O - Overall a rather poorly done brown ale, aroma and appearance are nice but the rest is just meh.
