Awesome aroma. Weak on flavor. Had this at a Christmas tasting party. Thanks Doug for a great tasting!

this would have been better if it had been served cooler (my bad) but even so, pretty good, though the aroma was better than the flavor itself.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brownish-black pour with a medium khaki head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate, peanut butter and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of roasted malt, peanut butter and sweet chocolate. The finish is roasted nuts and chocolate. Decent overall.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Roasted pea-nutty aroma, thin tan head and dark brown body. Bitterness evident as well as the peanut butter flavor in this Porter along with chocolate and roasted malts. Unique porter that by looking at the ratings you either love or hate....my palate liked this gimmick of a beer.

2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
I give this a 2... 1 because it’s a beer and 1 for ABV. This might very so be one of the worst porters I’ve ever had. I wanted to like it, but the truth is I have had better peanut butter beers in my homebrew club. This one was poorly executed. It did have nice aroma, and if I could kick back and relax by sniffing beer all night it would be a winner, but I like to drink it as well and in this case, I regretted my decision to order it when I was about 4oz into my pint (worth noting, this should be served in a 10oz pour, not a pint).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Deep brown, nearly black, moderate frothy beige head, spotty lacing. Dark chocolate and roasted peanut butter cup on the nose. Chocolate soda on the tongue, not so much on the peanut butter. A little bakers chocolate, ashy on the finish. Moderate body and mouthfeel. A bit dry, dark chocolate, and ashy bits linger. The peanut butter seems to all be on the nose. Interesting at least, but was expecting more peanut butter and sweetness. Thanks Ramy!

1.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
To start: one of the most disappointing, underwhelming beers I’ve ever had the displeasure of drinking.
Aroma: A high-ish point. Nutty aroma, bit of chocolate, promising.
Appearance: Dark, not terribly thick, typical porter. Solid, not amazing. Minimal lacing, head needed an aggressive pour to form.
Taste: Metallic, thin. Artificial fizziness dominates and obscures whatever flavor might be present beneath it. Cocoa and peanut butter notes are present but not pleasantly so. Finish is mouth puckering & metallic. In a word, unpleasant.
Palate: Worst part by a mile. Initial feel is pure fizz, middle portion before you swallow is thin and unsatisfying, finish is long, astringent, metallic and otherwise terrible.
Hugely disappointing beer. Can’t believe this thing clocks in at ~95/100 at the time of writing. It’s possible that I had a bad bottle, yes, but my experience was corroborated by the friend who had had it previously and shared the bottle.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nicely aromatic with notes of peanut butter, slight vanilla with chocolate. Almost faintly smells a Reese’s peanut butter egg. Dark and opaque. Smooth through the palate with a touch of peanut butter at the finish. Subtle notes of coffee bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle at Dave’s tasting. Pours dark brown, not quite black, with a tan head. The aroma is amazing, fresh peanuts/peanut butter. Some notes of chocolate and coffee are present as well but the aroma is all about the peanuts/peanut butter. The flavor is unfortunately not as enticing with some mild peanut butter and chocolate. Could use a little more heft in the body as well. Still, a really fun beer to drink. Makes me long for some Funny Bones!
