4/5  rDev -8.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Deep dark brown where no light passes through the edge of the glass. Decent beige head but it settles the least number of rim bubbles I've seen. No lace.

Wonderful aroma of sweet chocolate, almonds, and peanuts. Reminds me of S'mores without the marshmallow.

Very rich and sweet. Lightly carbonated. The predominate flavor is milk chocolate. Lots of peanut, making this a veritable peanut butter cup. The swallow is like cocoa and the aftertaste lingers a long time. Oddly, no alcohol warmth. Still this is a powerful beer.

L - Deep, opaque black with mahogany highlights around the edges with a dark tan head that dissipates quickly leaving behind no real lacing.
S - Rich, sweet peanut butter, tart strawberry, along with dark chocolate and roasted/toasted oats.
T - follows the nose and fulfills the promised flavors: rich, sweet peanut butter, tart strawberry/raspberry, rich, dark chocolate/fudge along with roasted/toasted malts
F - Medium, leaning to full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. I wish it were a little fuller to match grandness of this beer, but overall a nice mouth feel.
O - another amazing dessert stout from Aslin with huge peanut butter, strawberry, and chocolate flavors.
