Dark brown, near black, color. Small tan head.
Nutty, chocolate aroma.
Tastes like a peanut butter cup.
Sweet, smooth. A dessert beer.
Worked well for me.

It mentions on the bottle "peanut butter essence", but with no indication of artificial flavoring, I was not expecting that to be so dominant. I guess that is a compliment to their ability to create such an "essence", but just was not my thing. Cheers!

Chocolate brown. 4
Reese’s nose! 4
Sticky chocolate malts, slight char, nutty bite and some sweet coffee. 4
Round, creamy, smooth. 4

Peanut butter cup - nailed it! And a smooth and easy stout besides. Considering how easy it seems to be to foul up this experiment, I’m impressed. Sweet as.... 4

Pours a finger of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is rich chocolate, roasted malt, peanuts and coffee. Really nice.
The taste has a good malt roast flavor, chocolate, peanut sweetness and a little coffee bitter in the end.
The texture is soft and creamy.
It's a great experience.
