Rated 3/20/13. 12 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a dark burgundy color. The head is a three finger heavy cream shade. It looks to be very well carbonated judging how the bubbles from the body rise upward, as well. Nice streaks of lace are left on the glass. S: Well, they were talking about chocolate and peanut butter with this one...and golly gee, it smells of chocolate and peanut butter. Thereís a definite vibe of roasted nuts here, and maybe just a hint of fruity esters. T: Personally, Iíd start off by saying that the chocolate used here rubs me the wrong way - and just now, I catch "porter with artificial flavors" on the label. Damnit. So does the rest of the flavor profile redeem the experience? Well...sort of. I really enjoy the nutty flavors of this (both from the malt and peanuts) on the finish in particular. Still, this could have been really something if the chemical off-notes were toned down. M: Thin and dry. It goes down superbly due to the weak body and higher carbonation, but in no way does it feel substantial. At least it scrubs away some of the poorer flavors represented here. O: There is a really sound porter here...but the chemical qualities really hurt the quality of the brew. It does taste like advertised, and I can see this one appealing to non-beer drinkers. As a gimmick, itís likable enough where I donít really regret buying a six pack, but not to the point where Iíd buy it again.

On draft at random hotel beach bar in VA Beach. After my first two beers not impressing, I was rather reluctant to even try this, especially as I am usually highly unimpressed by efforts to put nuts in beer. Glad I was utterly wrong. Poured black, slight head. Aroma was roasted peanuts and chocolate. Flavor was a match, rather strongly of well roasted peanuts with a bit of chocolate sweetness to balance things out. Really quite good. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

12oz bottle courtesy of Lauren and John (thanks!). Brown - black pour with thin light tan head. Aroma of peanut and chocolate. Tastes are coffee, cocoa, peanut butter, sweet malt. Bittersweet finish. Nice desert brew thatís actually drinkable.

12oz bottle. Dark brown with beige head. Smells like peanut butter and slight chocolate. The taste is the perfect amount of peanut butter and bitter chocolate. A really nice beer.

Good winter beer. Nice flavor profile. Pretty smooth. Creamy finish. It's not bitter, good choice if your looking for something that tastes like the name. There are no hints of peanut butter. It tastes like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (1959) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 7, 2014
12 oz bottle. Loads of peanuts in the nose. Plenty of peanuts in the flavor too but enough dark roasted grain to have a clear presence. Trace of char on the aftertaste. Slight astringency in the medium-high body. O: not quite as balanced and refined as the Terrapin Liquid Bliss I had soon after.

rosenbergh (7051) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2014
12 oz bottle. (Mr. Billís) Roanoke, VA.
Dark reddish brown - almost black - colour with a small light tan head. Aroma: Sweet peanut butter, Snickers, mild roasty notes and chocolate. Flavour: Roasted malt, sweetness, peanut butter, mild coffee and mild bitterness. Tasty but I found the Terrapin Liquid Bliss even tastier. Nice name though.

MrBunn (2461) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Bottle. Pour is a deep brown with a thin tan head and thick aromas of chocolate, nuts and earthiness. Flavor is a lovely mix of the above with a peanut edge to it that smooths things out and makes them fit together nicely. Lovely beer.
