Aroma of chocolate and peanut butter but much less peanut butter on the taste. a lot of what appear to be peanut butter floaties in the beer. like the roast level, wish the chocolate was a little sweeter as what is there tastes a bit burnt.

Pours dark and thin head. Definite peanut butter flavors first on the palate, then a slight chocolate sticks around.

12-oz. bottle needed a heavy pour for a 1/2 finger of light tan froth with medium retention and minimal spots of lace.
Dark chestnut brown with amber highlights, appears dark amber in front of light.
Peanut butter controls the smell with caramel malt and bakers chocolate.
Taste begins semi-sweet from malt and peanut butter, the middle is a little dryer with roasted malt (not bitter) and a faint astringent burnt chocolate twinge. The finish returns to semi-sweet and is quick and smooth. Faint hops and alcohol linger.
On the light side of medium bodied, below average carbonation. The peanut butter softens the feel and coats the palate.
Minus the burnt chocolate, the taste is evenly semi-sweet and low on the bitterness. Smooth easy drink.

Dark brown in color with little light penetration. There's a fingernail of brown around the rim and covering half of the top. The aroma is of sweet and decadent peanut butter along with milk chocolate. I'm tasting a much less prevalent flavor of peanut butter than the nose would indicate. I'm also tasting milk chocolate and some dark malt in the mix. The mouth is lightly oily and silky smooth from the peanut butter.

Not quite a sweet baby Jesus. This beer has an odd after taste,

On tap, it pours pitch black color with a small tan head that faded slowly and left minimal spotty lacing.

Smells of chocolate, burnt peanuts, dark chocolate, smoked grains,
cocoa powder, roasted malts, brown sugar and lots of roasty notes.

Tastes has more of the peanut butter aspect with everything listed above plus burnt coffee grinds, light piney notes and burnt marshmallow.
