#4 of MBBC's series of small batch beers for ACBW 2014. While this type of beer isn't as rare or so much a novelty, it's really a step out and a great innovation for Maumee Bay.

It's close to black, dark brown with the vaguest glimmer of red in its deepest hues and medium brown at its thinnest points. The head is off-white, about half a finger tall, and pretty well retained. Lacing is just more than moderate.
The guys got it down quite well, particularly in the aroma. It's extremely nutty but with a firm base of malts, a hint of sweetness to it and with a distinctly peanut aspect to the nuttiness, which makes a big difference. It's also quite jammy, plenty of grape here as well but not straight up, natural but a bit sweeter like preserves. In the flavor, the jamminess is lost a bit for a more generic dark fruits, but it is distinctly grape up front, and the peanut taste is never lost either. It gets a bit of roast in the background, but not too much, and it adds nicely to the peanut.
Its body is medium and the juiciness and sweetness leans a little cloying, but the roast, at least, is well used to keep it semi-sweet and not too heavy or syrupy.
