Notes: Shhhh! This double brown ale would make a certain candy-maker very jealous! Waves of peanut butter and chocolate layer in this rich, bold, big brown ale to create a unique drinking experience.

imo, one of the best beers FBB varies from batch to batch but the latest is near perfect! slight, dead on chocolate peanut butter cup in the nose. caramel sweetness blends with fresh roasted peanuts and plenty of chocolate morsels. this one is not to be missed! hoping they bottle it soon!

Cola brown with a ring of head and no lacing. The aroma is the best part of this beer, chocolate and peanut butter for days. Taste follows the nose, very smooth and sweet. Mouthfeel is light but coating. Very enjoyable beer.

On tap at the brewery.

Clear deep red-brown; a deent head and some lacing.

Aroma: sweet and highly similar to Reece's Peanut Butter Cups, meaning a load of milk chocolate with fainter peanut biutter.
The flavor follows. A bir sweet, as suspected.

O: not a fan of Reeces but I usually love peanut butter beers (usually stouts or porters in my experience). This one pales by comparison. bt is still enjoyable and certainly worth trying.

I missed a few opportunities to have this beer in the past, but I was finally able to score a growler (thanks, Jeff!)

Split this with the wife (a big connoisseur of FB beers), and poured into a new white-logo FB snifter, and an OG white-logo FB snifter. Color was the darkest of browns, with an aggressive pour yielding just the tiniest of tan collars...carb was low after a few days in the growler. Full-blown peanut butter cup aroma wafted out as soon as I popped the cap, roasted malts, rich chocolate, no-nonsense peanut butter, with a sugary sweetness. Taste was great, even if not as sumptuous as the aroma. Roasty malts with a coffee-like bitterness, milk chocolate, toasted peanuts...peanut butter cup. Pretty much delivered exactly what was promised. Body was on the fuller side of medium, mouthfeel was smooth, but with a chocolaty grittiness. This did NOT drink like a brown ale, and I mean that in a good way. The sweetness of the beer was kept in check by the roast/toast, ensuring it was not cloying or too candy-ish. Very good overall, and probably the best pb beer I've had?
