Very dark appearance with slight off white head. Aroma is a slightly sweet peanut butter that is quite pleasant. Taste is also a slightly sweet peanut butter.

On tap.
L: Pitch black. Looks viscous and tar-like. No head but appealing amounts of lacing spots the glass.
S: Tons of peanut butter. Molasses, dark fruit, bakers chocolate and coffee also present. Peanut butter dominates.
T: Peanut butter overload! It honestly tastes like eating skippy creamy peanut butter. As with the smell, peanut butter dominates but flavors of dark chocolate, malts and molasses are also present.
F: Medium in body and weight. Still has slightly to thin of a feel compared to other beers of this stature but it isn't a dealbreaker. Creamy texture, low carbonation and no booze presence.
O: Very enjoyable. Drinks very, very easily. I would most certainly buy some cans to take home given the chance. I am very grateful to have tried. Cheers!

16oz can served in a big snifter. Dated 12/29/18. Gift from a friend at work.

Pours black with no head. Smell is nutty, chocolatey, roasty, coffee. a tiny bit of anise. Smells very sweet.

Taste is peanut buttery, but not too strong -- anise comes across much stronger. Bitter coffee comes across much stronger. Not as sweet as I thought it would be.

Mouthfeel is a little oily and a little still. Overall, it's a very tasty beer that needs a little carbonation.

Tan head. Black color. Lace. Crowler.

Tons of peanut butter and chocolate. Not artificial which is nice. Tastes like Reece’s. Not super thick but a little syrupy.

On tap at the brewpub location the other day.

The beer pours the expected blackish brown color with good head retention and lacing, The nose on this bad boy is impressive, and IMHO, the best aspect of this beer. There's a huge aroma of peanut butter and roasted pecans, coupled with some noticeable vanilla, dark chocolate and light coffee. The beer smells as if it will be pretty sweet, which in fact it is. The flavor profile replicates the nose almost exactly, the peanut butter and pecan flavor wasn't quite as pronounced on the palate. As noted above, the beer is quite sweet, and I thought there was a touch of heat from the alcohol on the finish. Mouthfeel is fairly full and smooth, and the finish is pretty long. This is definitely a pretty impressive effort from GN, though for me, I found the sweetness to be a bit tiring after a while. Hard to imagine committing to a full 10 ounce pour with this one.

A solid effort from GN, but in the end, just not really my cup of tea. However, those who love sweet beers and peanut butter flavor in their beer will likely be overjoyed with this beer.
