The beer pours a brown head that dissipates quickly. The beer itself is an opaque black with a slight brown hue and it looks pretty nice.

The smell is good. It has a good peanut butter note mixed with a good chocolate and moderate salty note through the smell. It's a good smell with a very good balance between all the different notes. There is also a moderate caramel note through it all.

The taste is pretty good. It has the same notes as the smell but with a stronger and more lasting peanut butter note. The taste has a salt note underneath all of this into the finish.

The feel is pretty good. It feels thin and is fairly drinkable with a good carbonation.

Overall, a damn fine beer and definitely one of their best. Go for it.
