3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at J. Clyde in Birmingham. Wait, this was 13%??? Jesus, no wonder the taste was so big. It was a bit boozy but the taste covered it well. Tasted like beer concentrate. Near-black pour, small head. Nose of peanut butter, chocolate, vanilla, and a bit of caramel. Tastes like that multiplied a few times. Bomber in the store was only $4.99. Wish our local breweries in Durham would recognize that should be their price point and not $15-20 for their stronger beers. Get that shit outta here.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Big thanks to reggie dunlap for this monstrosity of a rare beer! 12% wew! Does have the aroma of peanut butter fer sure. From a bottle it pours like a thicker dark brown liquid. Booo-zeee is an understatement. Quite a concoction, wew.. Although you would not think its 12%, it certainly is alky on your lips, alky in your face, alky down the gullet, and finally its alky kick in the abdomen. Not sure what to think of this stuff, did I say wew yet? Becomes a little brain numbing near the end of the session. Undoubtedly one of the biggest porters Iíve the pleasure of tasting. WEW Not for the meek at heart. Big alcohol laced finish, but I must say, this is a little smoother than most rude beers of this ABV. Look, Iím not one for higher alky beers but this was a little more acceptable than most beers over 10%. Not cloying as with most and it did have a fair amount of co2 that made this somewhat palatable.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap. Pours a dark, but not opaque, brown. Smells of heavy, roasted peanuts. Hits the tounge with a bit of bitter, moving to sweet in the middle. Goes a bit tangy and very smooth on the end. Not as "oily" as other peanut butter beer Iíve had. Very good.

Bottle from trade with soonerchamps. Pours very dark brown with a very small head that quickly fades to a ring. Aroma is a good peanut butter and caramel mix with some light roast. Taste is great. Moderate sweetness up front with lots of caramel and then the peanut butter flavor builds through the finish. Nice underlying roasted malt throughout. Smooth finish with a very light booziness. Cannot believe this is 12%, drinks like its 6-7%. Not only was this an Alabama tick but one of the best peanut butter beers Iíve had too. Thanks Matt!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours a somewhat clear brown with a medium tan head. aroma has nice peanut buttery notes...not a ton...gets overshadowed with roastiness and mild booziness. flavor is roasty and nutty with light burnt bitterness and PB creeping in...some caramely notes and slight booziness...even some chocolate. mouthfeel is light/medium and a tad thin in the middle while the finish warms and lingers with dark chocolate and slight PB.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. 12% ABV version released in August 2013. Pours dark brown with a small white head that fades quickly. Minimal lacing around the glass. Nose is very nutty, peanut, hazelnut, very rich. Taste is similar, somewhat sweet...a desert beer. Not much alcohol burn for 12% ABV. My biggest complaint for this beer is the thin mouthfeel. I expected a porter to be a much thicker beer. Good stuff though!

Got to try this one out during Bards & Brews at the Avondale Library over the weekend. Mellowed peanut butter flavor, not at all cloying. Goes down smoothly and makes a proper dessert beer.
