3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served on-tap at Alís of Hampden.
A - Pours dark brown with a small off white head leaving spotty trails of thin lace down the top part of the glass.
S - Smells of fresh toasted peanuts, bakers chocolate and the dark roasted grain. The nuts are strong, combining with the chocolate to make this ones nose exactly as advertised.
T - Tastes just like it smells, maybe with a bit less nuts, making it a bit more balanced. Some light hop bitterness comes through as it warms up. Finish is roasty, lingering on the palate for quite awhile after consumption.
M - Heavy body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, roasty feel. Finish is roasty, lingering for quite awhile.
O- Overall a pretty good chocolate PB beer but not the best I have had. Definitely worth a shot if your into this kind of beer, just donít expect the something mind blowing.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly clear very dark brown color with a 2 finger dense khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big milk chocolate, cocoa, peanut butter, caramel, toffee, toast, brown bread, light herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and peanut butter notes; with great strength. Taste of big milk chocolate, cocoa, peanut butter, caramel, toffee, toast, brown bread, light herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, peanut butter, caramel, toffee, toast, brown bread, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and peanut butter flavors; with a good roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately creamy/silky, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome peanut butter porter style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and peanut butter flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. The aromas were much stronger with peanut butter presence; the flavors were more balanced overall. A highly enjoyable offering.

Bottle from JB. Pours a dark black with a tan head. The aroma was chocolate and roasted coffee. The taste was coffee, creamy chocolate and a hint a peanut butter. The porter was very cold at 1st. The peanut butter came out more as it warmed. Thanks JB.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark chocolate brown color. Gets a little red at the edges.
Amazing chocolate aroma. The peanut butter really hit me in a way that it never has on draft. (I poured this one in several spurts.) Short of some kind of peanut butter infused chocolate shake, Iíve never sniffed anything like this.
The flavor is like a liquid peanut butter cup. The nuttiness subsides a bit, giving way to the sweetness. The peanut butter is absolute though.
This beer absolutely, positively needs to warm up. Iíve had it too cold on tap and itís no good that way. Itís excellent if consumed correctly.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle - $2.00 at Tasty Beverage Co. in Asheville, North Carolina.
Appearance: Pours a very dark brown body with a faintest hint of tawny ruby at the far, far edges. Scant, stray beige bubbles struggle to maintain a head beyond a minute or so.
Smell: Well, frankly, it smells of a peanut butter cup that beckons you to let it in your mouth and embrace you in its endless grasp of sweet chocolate laden peanut butteriness.
Taste: A roasty, sweet, chocolaty start with a bitter richness akin to a dark chocolate creeping in which is quickly overtaken by the peanuts peanuts peanuts. A light fruitiness, a bit hard to discern beyond the, as previously mentioned, peanuts peanuts peanuts. Perhaps an imagined slight salty element. Finishes as it starts: sweetish, chocolaty and full of peanut butter.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Lightly creamy mouthfeel.
Overall: Granted, Iím not a fan of peanut butter anything, really. I had thought the locally-produced Liquid Bliss by Terrapin was fair enough, but, to my surprise, this was actually pretty good (at least for a twelve ounce bottle and a two-buck purchase) and one of the better beers at pulling off the whole peanut butter angle.

Well, that was a fun beer. Wish I had bought more, actually. And yes, it smells and tastes exactly like youíd expect - Chocolate covered roasted peanuts. Maybe a little coffee in the finish, but not much.
