Draft at Moriartys. Very dark clear copper brown pour. Starts with a thick tan head and lace. Both disappeared. Smells good. Chocolate nibs. Dark roasted peanuts. Burnt toast. Body would be too thin if this was billed as a stout but works just fine as a Porter. Better than similar concoctions.

Exquisite hazelnut, peanut, and coffee aroma. Fizzy cola, thin vanishing head. Strong hazelnut coffee flavor. Dry and fizzy, seltzer-like. Doesn’t drink as well as hyped or hoped. Fantastic aromatics.

Pours the opaque inky brown of a porter with the creamy off white head. Aroma is mary jane candy bar, chocolate and peanut butter and fresh ground coffee. Taste is.....ah......uh......metallic, soggy coffee grounds. Little of the aroma transfers.

On draft at Churchkey DC on Zwanze Day. Pours a clear cola brown with a bubbly tan head. Peanut butter dominates the nose. Chewy Snickers bar flavor with a bitter finish. Interesting. Definitely not a session beer.

What a terrible version of berr! This was on draft at Earth Wood and Fire in Baltimore. The aroma smelled of fake peanut butter and chocolate toffee, but this is where the fun ended, This tasted of bitter aloe vera Robitussin medicine. I was shocked that this was considered a porter. I tasted earthy herbacious grassy leaves, with black licorice and cooked veggies, cough drop and a bit of menthol. I took one sip and was hapily finished with this dreadful experience. I woul never ever drink this concoction ever again.

This is very much peanut butter and chocolate! Roasted peanuts and slightly bitter chocolate are the first tastes I get, followed by strong roasted malt presence and dark bread, followed by a slight saltiness that goes well with the chocolate. What surprises me is that this isn’t a sweet beer, which you would think it would be, no, this is a nice savory beer. The beer certainly has that roasted malt/coffee flavor that porters should have, it just also has an extra dimension, depth really, that the peanut butter and chocolate provides. Great taste!
