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.
