3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

Very very very peanut buttery.
Hints of chocolate and coffee.
I really donít care that the flavors are artificial they taste great to me.
This is a fun beer to have a couple of.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours out almost black with a thin off tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, roasty peanut butter, light coffee and some toasty malts. Taste is complex and a solid blend of the flavors with nothing taking too much of a center stage. Roasty peanut butter, chocolate, toast, mild coffee, some lingering sweet nuttiness. Nice mouth feel. Solid, tasty and weíll done.

Peanuts Here! Feels like I should be at a ball game. All I get is peanuts. The aroma is peanuts, nice but a little overwhelming. Same for the flavor. I love beer and peanuts but the Reeces sweetness doesnít work for me.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Both bottle and draft... Dark brown ale with crimson highlights and a small, creamy, off-white head. Decent retention. The aroma is supposed to deliver chocolate and peanut butter, but Iím pulling more of a CrŤme Brulee feature from the glass. However, the power of suggestion eventually kicks in and I discover notes of roasted peanuts, brownie and toasted almonds. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. The flavor is a blend of roasted malts, vanilla and nuttiness. The flavor tilts a touch toward the burnt and bitter side, but is well-balanced overall. Finishes lightly astringent and dry. Bottled version courtesy of darkguardian!

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Oily black body with minimal tan head. Strong peanut butter, light chocolate aroma. PB flavor comes through heavy with subtle notes of malt, espresso, and chocolate. Not as sweet as you may expect.

I will say, itís a must try, but nothing I would go out of my way to have too often.
Insteresting taste at first, but a weird after taste. Better a little bit warmer

I just had to try this one. Had a sample pour from taphouse in Norfolk. Then it graduated to a pint. Aroma reminds be of chocolate nutella. The flavor is similar ,but in a beer sort of way...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This pours jet black with a wispy tan head that leaves ring lacing. The nose is of huge peanut butter notes... awesome. Flavors have true peanut butter, roasted peanuts, toasted legumes, and a nutty caramel malt that finish with toasted nut skins... and MORE peanut butter! A silky, velvety palate ensues upon soft carbonation, a medium-full body and complex, substantive mouthfeel for a seriously satisfying peanut butter brew.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Bottled: 10/10/13. A DEEP mahogany pour with a thin British khaki head. Peanut butter, milk chocolate, freshly roasted coffee, and caramel dominate the RICH aroma. Smells just like a peanut butter cup. Medium-bodied on the way down. Peanut butter and milk chocolate upfront in the taste. Some dark chocolate and roasted coffee finish things off. Some charred grains here and there. A tasty dessert beer. I couldíve sworn I had rated this before.
