Poured from a can into a snifter
Appearance – The beer pours a dep brown color with a tiny head of brown foam. The head fades rather fast leaving foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is huge of a chocolate peanut butter cup smell mixed with lots of roasted and toasted malts and some caramel and molasses sweetness. AT the same time there is a touch of coffee and cocoa nibs, along with a bit of fig and plum. Other lighter vanilla and crème smells are mixed in there as well, mixing with the rest to produce a rich peanut butter dessert aroma.
Taste – The taste begins with tons of sweetness, with lots of caramel, molasses, and brown sugar. Along with these, and anticipated from the nose, there is also a lot of roasted malt and cocoa flavors. The peanut butter is lighter upfront, gaining strength as the taste moves forward. At the same time the flavor also darkens, with more roast and some coffee coming to the tongue. A little bit of vanilla also joins in all while the sweet flavors of caramel fades at the expense of more molasses and brown sugar. AT the end a bit of bitter nut and more peanut comes to the tongue, leaving one with a very sweet and rather dark peanut butter cup flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is syrupy and thick with a carbonation level that is low. Pretty decent for the style and makes for a rich sipper.
Overall – Too sweet for my taste. Fun to try, but way too much of a sugary taste and a bit unbalanced.

It's nearly black coffee brown as it rests inside a clear pint glass filled from a tap. There's very little biege head. There is a definite peanut butter aroma, with a hint of chocolate. That may be just something many stouts bring, without it being an actual ingredient. The first taste blasts the palate with sugary sweetness. Then, there's some peanut butter. What doesn't blast the tongue is the chocolate, nor the high ABV. As the glass drains without much lacing, the simple sugar outdoes the peanut butter. This is certainly a desert beer and likely a one and done for most. There's just not enough complexity to overcome the sweetness. What is commendable is the mouthfeel that had to carry all the sweetness and high ABV.

Pours dark. Thin foam. Unpleasant odor. Very sweet buttery body. Sour sweet finish. I don't taste chocolate or peanut butter. Tastes like butter shots that I used to drink in college. Too sweet. This is a terrible addition to the black water series.

L - Deep black with a thin tan head that dissipates quickly leaving behind minimal lacing
S - Strong notes of peanut butter and milk chocolate, along with dark roasted malts - kind of smells like popcorn butter as well? Weird but not a bad smell at all.
T - peanut butter and chocolate up front and throughout intermixed with notes of caramel. Slight vanilla. Rich dark malt throughout.
F - Full bodied with light to moderate carbonation. Smooth
O - definitely a dessert beer and tastes exactly as promised - like a peanut butter cup - but because it's so indulgent, it is hard to drink more than one at a time

Pours a dark brown color with a half finger of head. The most dominant note in the nose is peanut butter candy. The peanut butter carries over to the flavor, but the dominant flavor note is overly-sweet artificial frosting.

This beer has a strong butter note which is a little strange but I love it. This beer tastes/smells like peanut butter cookies with chocolate frosting.
