16 ounce prowler into tulip glass, filled on 11/4/2018. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby reddish copper/light brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big caramel, brown sugar, peanut butter, brown bread, and toasted biscuit; with lighter notes of cilantro, coconut, chili pepper, toffee, roast, dark fruit, herbal, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bread/light roast malts, peanut butter; and light-moderate pepper, coconut, spice, and fruity yeast notes; with great strength. Taste of big caramel, brown sugar, peanut butter, brown bread, and toasted biscuit; with lighter notes of cilantro, coconut, chili pepper, toffee, roast, dark fruit, herbal, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Mild herbal/roast bitterness and pepper spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, peanut butter, brown bread, toasted biscuit, cilantro, coconut, chili pepper, toffee, roast, dark fruit, herbal, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bread/light roast malts, peanut butter; and light-moderate pepper, coconut, spice, and fruity yeast flavors; with a nice malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and no cloying flavors after the finish. Slightly increasing dryness from lingering bitter/spiciness. Light-medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/bready, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 7.9%. Increasing pepper heat after the finish through the glass, but not overwhelming. Overall this is a very nice spiced English brown ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bread/light roast malts, peanut butter; and light-moderate pepper, coconut, spice, and fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV, with the very mildly bitter/spicy finish. Not as spiced up as expected, but really enjoyable stuff. Great balance of rich malt complexity and PB presence; with the coconut, spice, and chili peppers coming out in the background. Spot on base style example, with mild bitterness and restrained yeast fruitiness.

Sample at EBF 2016 Brown sugary caramel malt with a light nuttiness. Big earthy spicy pepper aroma and flavor with a moderate to high level of heat. Decent beer.

An undoubtedly odd flavored beer but it does an excellent job of capturing the Thai Peanut smell and flavor with a slight kick of spice at the end too. Well worth another try.
