Year of New Beer: Candy Bar Baba, Ethereal Brewing (Lexington)

Written By: Dion on 11/26/2018

Managed a quick stop this evening so I could try this before it disappears. Deep, rich nose of chocolate, bourbon, and dark fruit. Very little peanut butter on the nose, but it may have developed had I been able to really let it warm. Thick and viscous on the tongue as the chocolate gets an added layer of depth due to the peanutbutter. The PB is very subtle, but I think it just gives the beer an earthy, malty feel. The bourbon is subdued in this iteration, allowing for a modest alcohol warmth. I'm not usually a huge fan of PB beers, but this one bucks that trend. Very well balanced and extremely delicious. Hope this lasts a bit longer.
