On-tap at Capital Ale House, Richmond, VA

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a off white beige collar and lacing on the surface and down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of peanut butter are preset in the nose along with hints of roasted malts and chocolate.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of peanut butter dust along with notes of chocolate.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really liked the aromas and flavors of peanut butter in this beer.

Serving type: on-tap

L: Poured from a 32 oz. growler to a pint glass. Had a dark brown / black color and a thick consistency. There was a small amount of creamy, tan-colored head that quickly dissipated. Average lacing.

S: A very enticing aroma of peanut butter, chocolate, roasted malt, and an oaty quality.

T: Tasted of a small amount of chocolate, a bit of roasted malt (mostly in the finish), a ton of peanut butter, the aforementioned oaty quality, and light hops. An extremely focused flavor that delivers on its promises. The peanut butter isn't overstated, so it works well with the other ingredients. Quite tasty.

F: A decent amount of carbonation with a smooth, clean finish. Medium-bodied.

O: An exceptionally enjoyable, well made stout. Some beers advertising a peanut butter flavor don't deliver, but this one does.

So the first time I had this the brewery was in it's infancy and I wasn't the biggest fan. It reminded me too much of other peanut butter beers which I wasn't a fan of. Think sweet baby Jesus. It's ok, you just feel full after having 1 glass and don't want anymore.

They've obviously been fine tuning their recipe because these new batches have been delicious. Look is a typical porter black. Head is small, and falls quickly to a white ring. Smell is... peanut butter. Like someone just pulled a fresh batch of peanut butter cookies out of the oven type peanut butter. Taste is along those same lines, taking a bite of a peanut butter cup. It's sweet, rich, and velvety, but it's balanced by the thin mouthfeel. I didn't want it to be thick like a stout. Peanut butter taste doesn't stick around for long, but you keep smelling it for a few minutes after each sip. Incredibly drinkable, and you can keep going after having a glass. Well done.
