4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a deep-deep brown color with a one finger of tan colored head. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite heavy of a roasted malt smell mixed with a whole lot of a milk chocolate aroma. Other sweeter smells of caramel and a rather potent showing of a roasted peanut butter smell also are in the aroma. A bit of coffee is there as well, producing an overall aroma of a somewhat drier peanut butter cup nature.
Taste – The taste begins with a sweet milk chocolate taste with a moderate roasted malt and light coffee flavor. While little peanut butter taste is present upfront, it begins coming in soon after the initial flavors hit the tongue. All while this occurs, the sweeter flavors seem to get even sweeter with more milk chocolate and caramel coming to the tongue and with some of the coffee flavors dwindling. A little bit of a roasted bitter flavor joins the flavor at the very end of the taste leaving a nice and sweet chocolaty and moderately peanut buttery flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – For a porter of 6.5 % abv. this one is a little on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is a bit on the higher side. For the sweeter milk chocolate and peanut butter flavors, a bit of a thicker body may have created a slightly better and more dessert like feel, but even said the higher carbonation was actually quite nice for the sweet flavors and made for a more easy drinkability in the beer. So with that the feel was fairly nice overall.
Overall – A nice sweet chocolate peanut butter cup brew with a good drinkability and abv. If the body was only a little bit thicker this would be spot on for a dessert brew. Even so this is really a quite nice brew overall.

Bottle to English pint glass. Pours an opaque dark brown, with a sparse yellow head. Totally can smell the roasted malts and the peanut butter smell on the aroma. Has a somewhat disappointing watery mothfeel, but again the flavor is spot on for the description. Pretty tasty.

3.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
If you like peanut butter, then the aroma is great. Mild hops undertone, but peanut butter dominates.

Pours a dark brown with one finger of tan head. Aroma is sweet with roasted malts, peanut butter, and chocolate mocha. Taste is medium to heavy sweet with notes of peanut butter and a slight bitter finish. Interesting and delicious!

2.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2014 Smells like peanut butter beer. From a bottle. No head, dark beer. In taste, it does have some peanut in the background. However, this beer is kind of bitter and what else can be said? Can I say it is somewhat artificial in nature? Does not live up to its name sake, quite disappointed. Long burnt bitter linger thing going on here. Not impressed. get another name you assholes. Allah Akbar!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a dark brown color with a medium tan head. Smelled like peanut butter. The taste was a dry, chocolate peanut butter. It was like a brownie in a bottle. Very good!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle shared by huhzubendah, thanks Matt! Pours a dark translucent brown with light easily passing as cherry red on the glass. Aroma is salty nuts upfront, with muted sweet chocolate in the background. Flavor is peanuts, roast, chocolate, coffee in the distance. Overall unbalanced, thin mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Overly sweet and artificial aftertaste.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Aroma: Immediate peanut butter presence with light hops. Appearance: Jet black with a light brown head. Little retention. Taste: This follows the aroma. Medium cocoa with a fairly strong peanut butter taste. It had an awkward "Reese’s Puffs" cereal quality, with a medium hop presence that threw off any intended sweetness. Palate: Mild carbonation, somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Overall: this beer was enjoyable for the first few cold sips. Afterwards, it became an awkward challenge to finish with the strange flavor combination. Worth trying once, but I wouldn’t recommend a 6 - pack.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark but not overpowering, with chocolate malts counterbalanced by a smooth peanut butter undertone. The best chocolate peanut butter porter I've had!
