Sun King Brewing Shadow Proof Peanut Butter
What the brewers say
"Aged with peanut butter coffee in bourbon barrels."
What our panel thought
"Strong peanut butter, light milk chocolate, banana. Light berry esters. Sweet, dark chocolate dominates flavor, with roasted nuts, bright cherry, and fig. Finishes fairly sweet, with lasting nutty chocolate aftertaste. Alcoholic warmth. A bit muddled and slightly unfocused."
What our editors thought
"Singular peanut dominates the nose, with toasted notes supporting. The sip is similarly overpowered by peanut, with mild roast, very little barrel, and a persistent, omnipresent roasted peanut note throughout."
