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.

Growler thanks to rudzud,

Pours a touch of head that fades quickly, pretty much pitch black color.

Nose brings big Peanutbutter, toasted nuts, little salted Peanutbutter and mild cocoa, caramel malts and little milk chocolate, little cookie dough, etc. Chocolate chip notes. Hint roasted malt note.

Taste brings a little thin like watery coffee thing, toasted coffee grinds, little acrid note. Then decent Peanutbutter, toasted Peanutbutter cup and mild milk chocolate, cocoa, hint of salted toasted nuts, with little roasted malt and little chocolate chip cookie dough biscuit thing. Fair sweetness, mild bitterness. Finish is sticky, little syrupy, mild bitterness, little fake chocolate and Peanutbutter lingering.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, little thin watery, light carb, little sticky.

Overall eh, it has its decent points, but in the end too thin watery and sticky with light carb and some fake chocolate and coffee grinds thing, nice Peanutbutter, and choc is decent at times.

Received in a trade. Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark brown almost black hue with next to no head. Eh, it is a growler fill.

S - Aromas of nice chocolate, salty organic peanut butter. Chocolate chip cookies, really nicely nutty. No real coffee though.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, sweet, fake chocolate, peanuts are nice, like organic peanut butter, salted roasted peanuts, light roast. The coffee is very watery and weak.

M - Mouthfeel is rather thin and watery. The finish is a bit weird too, almost syrup.

O - Overall this beer was fun, but once again I have yet to be blown away by a peanut butter beer. This had promise but underwhelmed.

Serving type: growler

32 oz growler. Pours jet black with medium tan head, quickly dissipates. Peanut bitter smell, wow! Taste is burnt chocolate roastiness with hint of peanut butter. A little hop bitterness on the back end. Thin mouthfeel but smooth. Overall decent porter.

A nice dark beer. Big chocolate and coffee aroma with a hint of the peanut butter. Flavors are similar and are very well blended together to make a really smooth beer.
