3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma - definite peanut butter and a little chocolate in the nose
Appearance - deep brown body, opaque, not much in the way of head - off white about 1/2" and rings out
Taste - definite rich roast and peanut butter, and minor roast
Palate - body is medium, texture is more slick than creamy, carbonation is soft, the finish is roast bitters and buttery
I had a good night... think I drank about 6 of these. Dealing w/ mid morning migraines. Avoid a session of these. I know I’m in for a rough one tomorrow.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
extremely dark brown, with ruby hues. Low retention, off white head, holds up better in a tumbler then tulip.
lots of nutty aromatics, not peanut butter though, reminds me of dog chew snack aroma, no hop aroma, a rich malt sweetness hides behind the nuttiness.
the taste is heavily malt forward. a malt sweetness presents itself before the toasty, nutty character. some bitterness in the flavor seems to balance out the malt character nicely, though the nutty character consumed the beer overall.
a medium light mouthfeel, with a bit of pop in the carbonation. A smooth drinker for sure allows one to drink multiples.
overall this style is not my cup of tea. i am not sure exactly what i was looking for in a beer named after a great snack delight. The beers overpowering peanut character is too harsh for my liking, i have had beers prior that balanced cautiously with a similiar style and produced a splendid beer (Tired Hands 5 Out of 5) I’m not certain how the flavor is added but i would recommended trying to obtain the flavors and especially the aroma in a different manner.

Purchased from the Wegman’s cooler. All I got was a thin dark drink that I tried so very hard to pick up a flavor on. I could not get the chocolate or the peanut butter aromas or tastes. Something very wrong here. Must be me. I got swamp water with a drop or two of artificial vanilla. That’s about it. However I give points for the name and the ABV. Those took some effort.

Aroma and flavor are both Reese’ peanut butter cup. I like sweet stouts and porters, but this was over the top even for me. Gimmicky effort--if you find yourself at a DuClaw there are lots of better choices.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hot damn, I keep this in the cellar for a week and get to enter its 200th rating. Bottled 01/1?/14. Nose is of sweet chocolate with some roast and powder -- powdered ’International’ coffee mix, powdered milk, mocha, powdered peanut butter. Very faintly fruity. Pours dark red-brown that’s black in the glass, with a sudsy tan head. Taste of chocolate with very light peanut butter, some slightly acrid tang, low mineral, vague fruit. Overall only lightly sweet with very low bitterness, no real acidity but a touch of ash. Alcohol is essentially hidden, medium body. I think the mania of trying to add peanut butter has mangled things a bit here; on the surface, it sounds like a great idea, but in practice the elements are really disparate and detract from each other, and I’m not sure the base porter is all that good. I’ll say this, though: it could have been a goopy, syrupy, cloying mess, but as it is it’s quite drinkable once you get past the powdery addition. Maybe just don’t have it as the first beer of the night?

Aroma is a peanut butter sandwich made with wheat bread. The flavor is the same as the aroma mixed with a watered down stout. Not bad but not something I’d buy every day.

Pours deep black with a thin beige head. Upon pouring a terrific aroma of chocolate peanut butter fills the nose. Amazingly the aroma slowly transfer to the taste as it warms up which is followed by some dark mild toasted malt and caramel. Palate is a full smooth and creamy body. The finish is more of the same but gets slightly richer as it warms up some more some mild bitter notes for balance. Overall a very tasty chocolaty peanut butter flavored brew. Very enjoyable to drink.

Tap sample at Iron Abbey. Dark brown thin head. Aroma full on chocolate for sure and maybe PB? Wild, yeah this is hefty on chocolate with PB flavor. Odd. Too much ’odd’ going on with this one. Couldn’t drink much of this.
