Poured from 32oz crowler that sat in my fridge way longer than it should have. Despite the age, the pour looked magnificent. Pitch black with a fluffy tan head. The lacing in my snifter stuck like glue. Nose on this one was roasty and sweet with lots of dark roast coffee. Couldn't really taste the peanut butter, but coffee and dark chocolate were all there. This beer os incredibly roasty and blends wonderfully with the coffee. Carbonation was light, as was the body, but the flavor in this one more than made up for it. I would love to try this one a little more fresh but was still incredibly impressed by this beer.

Enjoyed at the brewery.

L - nice and dark, some slight head, apt for style
S - coffee and nuttiness and cocoa in that order for me on this one
T - really interesting blend of the flavor a you'd expect, but almost like a deconstructed meal there was some subtlety--peanut butter always sounds odd to me, but nuttiness doesn't. And that blended with the cocoa and coffee were smooth. All flavor a easily distinguishable. Not boozy. Also not overly sweet, which seemed a danger
F - smooth and rich
O - this is a winner! Not exactly a good choice for a session but as a novelty every once in a while, it'd be pretty darn fun. As the old ad went: Chocolate ... and peanut butter!

Beautiful, full head. Peanut butter and chocolate on the nose, very pleasant. The flavor come together really well in the beer. Mouthfeel could be a bit thicker in my mind but it is not bad at all. Overall a very fine beer, I would be happy to have this one around all the time!

Great integration between the peanut butter, chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Awesome looking, dark as hell pour. Bit bitter to balance out the sweeter elements. Medium mouthfeel with lower carb, makes this one drink lighter than it should. Solid offering.

Dark chalky looking brown with zero carbonation.
Has a strong peanut butter and coffee smell
The flavor mostly peanut butter with very little chocolate.
Overall, this could have been better if it weren't so flat.
