S: wanted to try a good beer that was getting good hype in this area.
O: Nuttin' Butter 16oz in a can after a dinner of east coast monkfish over succotash. This was an after dinner beverage poured in a standard pint glass
A: looks of a golden brown, whiskey color ale with minimal head. Tastes of intense peanuts (almost butterscotch, but not sweet!) with a vanilla finish.
P: Will get my hands on more and share with friends and family!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

look: slightly hazy Golden orange. Modest off white head on the pour that mostly recedes. Messy oily lacing that recedes quickly.
smell: As expected from the ingredients. Peanut butter is prominent, vanilla there but less assertive.
taste: better blending (vs the nose) of peanuts, vanilla, and sweetish English Barley in the taste.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is hazy yellowish amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high light beige head.
S: Moderate aromas of peanuts (not peanut butter) are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has a lot of flavors of peanuts, which linger throughout the finish.
M: It feels a bit more than medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The lactose contributes a bit of smoothness.
O: This beer is interesting, but it smells and tastes much more like peanuts than peanut butter.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a medium orange amber with a thin white head that persists as a thin film with light lacing. Aroma of mild caramel malt and peanut butter, simple. Flavor is candi and caramel malt, peanut brittle, peanuts and a hint of cocoa. Medium bodied with light creaminess. It's rare that I'm impressed by a lack of complexity in a beer, this is one of the rare exceptions. This is very straightforward; a simple barleywine base with little distinct character (more like a wheatwine, actually) and clear peanut flavor. And it works great. Nice balance between the mildly sweet malt and the nutty character. A bit on the sweet side, but fine for my tastes. This was unusual and well done. I'd like to see more Westbrook stuff around here.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

16 oz can

Pours hazy brownish orange. Head dissipates to a ring.

Aroma is of rich caramel, toffee, apple butter, peanut, pecan and biscuit.

Flavor is very rich. Caramel, toffee, peanut butter, nutmeg, clove, apple, pie crust and buttered toast.

Full body, stinging carbonation on the tongue.

Very tasty barleywine. The addition of peanut cuts the richness of the English BW profile and makes it extremely enjoyable to drink. Slow sipper. I would have this again.

As served in a snifter glass from the can.

Appearance: Clear not too dark amber with medium bubbles at best on the body. Off white head rising half a finger's length.

Smell: peanut butter and light alcohol

Taste: Peanut butter and toffee with dose of light malts coming off sweet and a bit alcoholy.

Mouth: Sweet complex finish which is sticky but not too much.

Overall: Good brew but wish the lactose sugars weren't there. I think it takes away from the beer. Salud!

Canned 07/30/19.

Rusty crimson-brown pour, catches the light nicely. Soft, sticky, ivory-colored head that leaves a good coating of lace around the glass.

The peanut butter is crazy on the nose here, smells just like Nutter Butters but with distinct undertones of cookie butter, roasted peanuts, and sweet malt.

Again, really nicely done on the palate. Peanut Butter milkshake vibes, with the vanilla coming out strong and complimenting flavors of caramel, malt, and a touch of hop bitterness on the tail. Very well-rounded.

The lactose does just what it needed to for this beer. Soft, smooth, with a low carbonation and medium residual stickiness.

Received in a trade and shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice just slightly hazy amber hue with a thick two finger white head that fades to leave sticky lacing and legs.

S - Big aromas of rich roasted peanuts and peanut butter. Flashes of malts ala English barleywine. Just TONS of roasted peanuts. Crazy.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with loads of roasted peanuts and thick peanut butter. Nice malt notes and slightly sweet bitterness. Good flash of hops, however, it's a bit spicy on the finish.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, creamy, alcohol is hidden wonderfully.

O - Overall this was a very solid English barleywine, the only knock was the nose is just waaaay too aggressive peanuts. Wonder if age will take the peanuts down.

Thanks? To rudzud?
Aggressive pour yields a large foamy creamy 1 finger head great retention and soapy lacing, long legs, semi hazy amber almost auburn reddish color

Nose is all loads of roasted peanuts and peanutbutter, faint hint of sweet candy malt but I'm really trying to get it, it's pretty much just peanuts

Taste big toasted peanuts again, fresh peanuts and peanutbutter, very toasty, some sweet candy malts, caramel toffee, and touch of fruit, little briny spicy hop with medium bitterness, sweet candy, like the coating on an m&m, finishes with a little spicy hop and medium dry

Mouth is rich creamy, medium foamy carb, almost no alcohol

Overall nice taste with tons of peanuts and some barleywine coming through but nose was all super peanuts and no barleywine, but taste and mouth were enjoyable

L: Had this beer on-tap at Westbrook, poured into a pint glass. Had light brown color and somewhat hazy consistency. There was a small amount of foamy, off white head that lasted an average amount of time. Good lacing.

S: A nice aroma of peanut butter, malt, chocolate, and some caramel.

T: Tasted of a little bit of chocolate (not overly present), a good shot of the advertised peanut butter, some malt, a bit of hops in the finish, and light caramel notes. This is one of those flavors that actually tastes like the ingredient it advertises. It's sweeter and a bit lighter than the average barleywine, but tasty nonetheless.

F: A solid amount of carbonation with a lively finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A thoroughly enjoyable beer all around. Well worth a shot.
