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.

Bottle. Muddy brown body, tan head. Aroma of peanuts, roast, sugar, toffee, chocolate. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Just OK for a novelty beer. The bitterness and the peanut butter not working together for me.

Solid porter. Dark Amber brown pour. Pb, chocolate, some creaminess, but a weird long lasting bitterness that didn't quite jive. Still pretty good for a sweet after dinner type beer.

Smells better than it tastes. Has an underlying bitterness, especially on the finish, that really undermines a great setup. Gives it a biting acrid note like Reeseís (cheap) peanut butter, unfortunately. Might make an awesome adult vanilla float though.

generallee08 (756) - New York, USA - JUN 17, 2015
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Appearance: The body is a very dark amber brown color topped off with a small soapy tan head. Itís head quickly settles down to a ring of foam at the edge of the glass with a wispy thin film in the center. Lacing is minimal. Smell: Itís big nutty notes hit me right as I opened the bottle. In the glass I get loads of sweet peanut butter and cocoa powder like notes. Taste / Palate: The flavor tastes just like a peanut butter sandwich covered in cocoa powder. Its sweet overall but not overly so. The feel is smooth and softly carbonated.

trapped (1305) - New York, TURKEY - JUN 17, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown with reddish tint, large spongy beige head, chocolate-peanut butter aroma, medium carbonation, slightly bitter mocha taste with peanuts flavor, longish bitter finish. Quite an interesting mix of tastes and flavors.

King_Alex_II (522) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 15, 2015
Black color with beige foam head. The smell has chocolate, peanut butter and sugar marshmallows. The taste continues what the smell has started. Very agreeable aftertaste, but a bit too sugary.

Purchased a 6-pack in Baltimore on my trip to see Maryland Deathfest. Pours a dark copper colour with a frothy beige head, good retention and decent foamy lacing. The peanut butter part is really in the smell, with hints of chocolate and dark fruits in the background. The nuttiness is a little milder in the taste with the dark fruit of the porter smoothly sailing. The chocolate malt lingers. Did not feel much of the nuts in the first few bottles, but this last one brought home really is present. I now have much respect for this brew. Congrats !

Bottle. This is a nice snappy little brew with deep peanut and chocolate flavour. Good and unique.

12 ounce bottle from Timfoolery, lots of peanut butter aroma and flavor, lacks the sweetness necessary to carry the flavor.

12 oz bottle shared with Tmoney99. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small khaki colored head. The aroma has big peanut butter and dark chocolate very much like a candy bar though not as sweet. The flavor has more peanut butter and chocolate with an odd finish, not chemical, but on the artificial side. I still like it, but the nose is definitely better.
