One of the best tasting beers on my list, better love peanut butter. Peanut butter aroma is stronger than taste, and taste is perfect. I am parcel to peanut butter though.

12oz bottle. Pours dark deep brown color with a one finger off white head that leaves spotty lacing. Aroma is big of fresh roasted peanuts, bakers milk chocolate and the dark roasted grains. Tastes just like it smells, with rich creamy flavors. Some light hop bitterness comes through as it warms up. Finish is roasty, and lingers on the palate for awhile. Heavy smooth body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, roasty feel.

12 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip.
A: Pours a dark burgundy color. The head is a three finger heavy cream shade. It looks to be very well carbonated judging how the bubbles from the body rise upward, as well. Nice streaks of lace are left on the glass.
S: Well, they were talking about chocolate and peanut butter with this one...and golly gee, it smells of chocolate and peanut butter. There’s a definite vibe of roasted nuts here, and maybe just a hint of fruity esters.
T: Personally, I’d start off by saying that the chocolate used here rubs me the wrong way - and just now, I catch "porter with artificial flavors" on the label. Damnit. So does the rest of the flavor profile redeem the experience? Well...sort of. I really enjoy the nutty flavors of this (both from the malt and peanuts) on the finish in particular. Still, this could have been really something if the chemical off-notes were toned down.
M: Thin and dry. It goes down superbly due to the weak body and higher carbonation, but in no way does it feel substantial. At least it scrubs away some of the poorer flavors represented here.
O: There is a really sound porter here...but the chemical qualities really hurt the quality of the brew. It does taste like advertised, and I can see this one appealing to non-beer drinkers. As a gimmick, it’s likable enough where I don’t really regret buying a six pack, but not to the point where I’d buy it again.

Bottle at home, courtesy of sloth. Big thanks for this one man!!! Pour is pitch black with a small tan head and great lacing. Huge chocolate, peanut better, almonds, roasted malt - seriously like reeses peanutbutter cups - lacto, vanilla, and nutter butters - Nice! Taste is huge peanut butter cups, dark chocolate, nutty, bready, graham crackers, roasty, malt balls, cocoa puffs, and toast with a light bitter finish. Light-to-medium mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Seriously tasty porter and tastes like liquid reese’s in a glass. Awesome!!!

Gifted by Damico. Pours a dark, dark amber brown with caramel colored head. Aroma of peanut, toffee, caramel, vanilla, with hints of roast and chocolate. Pretty complex aroma. Sweet vanilla taste with with the bitters, roast, and chocolate kicking in. Lots of peanut and caramel on the finish. Lingers gently. This beer is a step away from greatness. A creamier body would bring it home. A bit light and sharp. But damn tasty nonetheless.

Peanut butter! Smells & tastes like a Reece’s PB cup. The peanut butter really stands out. Definitely points for uniqueness. Not sure how many of these I could have in a sitting but I really appreciate the originality!
