Drank on tap at Mighty Squirrel Brewing Co., Waltham, MA
Served in a snifter

The beer poured an oily and viscous, absolute pitch black. Super shimmery looking in the glass. A thin, mocha colored crown topped the liquid, but it quickly dissolved.

The aroma was terrific. Peanut butter notes came through big time. There was a strong mocha presence as well. Lots of creamed and sugared coffee. Bit of milk chocolate too. Sweet but not excessively so for the style. Subtle roasted malt notes were apparent as well.

The flavor profile was a bit astringent initially but smoothed out with time. Again, the peanut butter was quite apparent. Big roasted malt presence on the front end. Nice creamy lactose and vanilla notes in the center. Bitter espresso appeared on the back end and crescendoed in the finish. There was an intense roasty and boozy quality too. As the beer warmed, the roast, booze and bitterness mellowed significantly.

As good as both the aroma and flavor profile were, the mouthfeel was even better. Super rich and dense. Completely full bodied for the style. The beer contained a fine, moderately effervescence that felt uber creamy and slick on the palate. This texture reminded me of heavy whipping cream.

This was my first time trying anything by Mighty Squirrel, and I was quite impressed. I will be sure to keep an eye out for these folks in the future.
