This poured with a very rich brown color and a thinner weaker brown head. The nose is filled with a raw peanut; very earthy, very natural. The taste follows suit with that earthy, natural peanut flavor. The feel is nice with a dry character instead of an oily feeling you might expect. The sign for this said "Yes, with real peanuts" and it's more than obvious as the peanut over powers the brown ale quality.

Peanut-Brown from Apocalypse Brew Works is a brown ale weighing in at 4.7 ABV and 22 IBUs. Brown ales are not a favorite style of mine but this is a very tasty offering.

I poured this from a growler right after I brought it home. The body was dark brown, nearly opaque and the tan head subsided quickly, leaving no lacing.

The smell of this beer was so inviting! Peanut butter cookies. Who doesn’t love peanut butter cookies? I could smell this beer all day.

The body was medium to thin and the carbonation was modest. No distractions here.

The taste was mostly what you would expect after the aroma. Nutter-Butter cookies with hints of creamed corn. Not too sweet or cloying. The inherent nuttiness of a brown ale works so well with this peanut addition. There was a cola-like quality and a clean, flinty, metallic-like finish to this one.

Although this is not the first goober pea beer brewed in the city it may be the most accessible. This is a very drinkable, I would even say sessionable beer. The bold flavor doesn’t become tiresome, and one could drink several of these with no problems.
