Has a dark brown color, and a sweet chocolate aroma. Goes down smooth, and tastes like a tootsie roll. Has a slight bitter finish.

Pours deep amber with thin tan head of foam. The aroma offers up a mix of dark roasted malts, black strap molasses and then rolling into a pleasing and inviting level of peanut butter. Cool. The taste delivers some sweet molasses and black licorice initially. About midway a modest peanut butter note joins in and takes this into the finish. Pretty nice.

Thanks to the kind soul who shared this at the recent Tampa Crew Tasting. Pours a hazy brown with a white head. Nose is roast, light coffee, and some chocolate and peanut butter. Flavor is similar with the peanut butter living among the chocolate and coffee. Interesting blend here with some mild dark fruit creeping in, too. Light to medium in body and interesting overall.

22 oz. bottle shared at Jackie O’s by??? Pours brown with a small beige head. The aroma is nutty with some chocolate. Hints of black coffee and earthy notes. The flavor is big peanut butter with only slight dark chocolate notes. Gets more bitter toward the finish. Interesting, but needs more flavor to make this better.

20120703 tap at Bel Air at release and again from bomber. PB is more noticeable in bottled version, yet still not prominent. Lovely dark brown with soft mouthfeel and cocoa notes. It’s a nice porter despite not really living up to its moniker.

Pours dark brown / black with billowy beige head. Aroma is huge peanut butter and very surprising with some chocolate and roasted notes. Taste is surprisingly peanut buttery and almost salty. Very strange but pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark brown/black color with a one finger head that sticks around. Aroma of chocolate, roasty malts, and feint peanut butter. Taste is more muddled up front but finishes nice, peanuts and chocolate are both present. This is way overcarbonated and I feel that it takes away from what could be a really nice beer. Overall it’s good, not great

Quite nice brew. Served at room temperature from a 20 oz bomber. Pours a rich black color with a substantial head. Odor has trailing peanut butter notes that are delightful with a accents of lighter chocolate roast. Hop balance is slightly to the dry side without pushing any herbs or grassy notes. The overall taste is medium body with slight bitterness. A slightly bigger body and reduced bitterness would make this a medal winner. Even so, quite nice.
