SAmpling this cellar temp 12 oz can poured into my snifter. The beer pours a dark cola brown color with no light passing through my glass. A densely packed creamy tan head of 1 cm foams up and fades pretty quickly to only a thin edge layer.
There is also some scattered lacing on my glass after each sip.
Aroma is rich with dark chocolate and also some peanut husk and roasted nut notes. Not sweet peanut butter notes but more of the roasted notes and shell or husk character. Pretty nice nose that doesnt have any sort of artificial character that can happen with peanut butter beers.
First sip reveals a medium bodied beer with smooth texture and very fine tingly carbonation. The beer coats my palate on each sip. Pretty solid physical traits on this brew.
Flavor is dark chocolate and a bit of sweet milk chocolate too. This gives way to some roasted peanut notes and a bit of sweeter peanut butter too. Some husky nut shell lingers after each sip with some of the sweeter chocolate too. No hops anywhere and the 9.5% is well hidden on this beer. I am enjoying this one and find it to be one of the better peanut butter beers Ive had recently. Glad to have tried this one and even happier I have another in the cellar!
