The beer is a dark brown/black, with a ruby bulb up to direct light. Big tan head that sticks, and leaves a nice lacing. The aroma, roasted peanuts, and a dark chocolate Reese's cup. It's not obnoxious or fake smelling. In the flavor, same deal, nice dark Reese's cup, and not overly sweet, though. There is some real bitterness that cuts through, and lingers. The peanut flavor is there but not over done. The feel is medium full body, dry, and has average carbonation. So, this is a good brew if you want a peanut butter/chocolate stout that isn't too sweet, and leaves you looking for your tooth brush, immediately.

Poured from a 12 oz can into glass mug. Nice colour, looks very dark brown with a dark tan head. Smells very much of chocolate and coffee. Taste is very chocolaty with a nice hint of peanut butter. Heavy mouthfeel like most stouts but still goes down easy. Reminded me of liquid peanut butter cup. Prost!

12oz can into tulip glass.

A: Dark black body with ruby showing at the stem of the glass; huge brown head recedes to a consistent ring.

S: Fairly big aromas of chocolate, vanilla, roast and hazelnut...does smell roasty, nutty, and semi-sweet.

T: Taste follows the nose with dry nutty peanuts and hazelnuts, roasted malts, medium sweet chocolate, vanilla, faint caramel and fruitiness. Dry finish leans more towards peanut butter than hazelnut, pretty dry.

MF: Creamy and fairly smooth. Could be fuller bodied, this is about medium bodied I would say. Dry finish is a bit fatiguing by the end.

O: Nice execution, fairly drinkable peanut butter stout. Nice chocolate, nutty, vanilla components. A good beer to share.
