3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: deep brown body, black center with a small layer of khaki foam that sits on top. Aroma is very nutty. Peanut butter cupp-y with some milk chocolate notes, smooth roasted peanuts, light brown sugar. Like a liquid Reese's Cup. Taste is the same, perhaps lighter on the peanuts. Sweet milk chocolate, peanut, molasses, & a mild touch of dark fruit. Lightly bitter roast in the finish with some milky peanut butter. Good stuff.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Split with Tom before the Cymbals Eat Guitar show on the night of the 50th anniversary of JFKís assassination. Pours Coca-Cola with a tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, sweet malt, and subtle peanut butter. Taste is a bit chalky with some chocolate and very minute trace of peanut butter, which I probably would not have pick up on if it hadnít been in the name. Thin palate, too, but hey, itís a porter, so what did I expect? Decent.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Black color. Decent head. Aroma is definitely peanut butter, with cocoa also. Maybe hazelnut too. Light sweetness. A tad watery. Some roasted malt taste. Creamy texture. Kind of a funky flavor. Ok. The best part is the aroma of PB. Sweet baby Jesus! If you ainít first your last. - Ricky Bobby.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Capones during my bday lunch trip. Poured a solid pitch black body with dark ruby edges with an average sized foamy beige head. Aroma is big chocolatey Tootsie Roll with a hint of peanut butter and a touch of light coffee. I found the body to be a bit on the thin side with average to softer carbonation and a lingering aftertaste. Flavor is burnt char, chocolate, Tootsie Roll, hint of peanut butter and coffee. Good beer.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. As thick as youíd expect ... deep and rich. The peanut butter thing doesnít come across that well in beer ... almost off-putting actually. But among the beers Iíve tried that have attempted the peanut butter thing, this is the least gross. The peanut stuff overwhelms both the initial whiff and the first taste ... but if you set it aside, this ainít a bad porter. But sheesh, I wish they hadnít done the peanuts. (#5323, 11/12/2013)
