3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
THOUGHTS: Not bad but a little artificial. Slightly watered down, too. Definitely interesting and worth a try. Fun but not spectacular.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a medium to dark brown that looked nearly black in the glass with bright red highlights and an average, off-white head that mostly diminished but left excellent lacing. The aroma had heavy milk chocolate and chocolate milk; moderate coffee; cherry; grape jelly; slightly face peanut butter aroma. The initial flavor was sweet; while the finish was moderately sweet, slightly acidic and bitter, and ever so slightly sour with an average duration. There was chocolate, coffee, peanut butter, cherry, and roasted malt, but it all seemed slightly artificial and slightly water. The medium body was sort of creamy with fizzy carbonation and a lightly astringent finish.

Bottle at Fastelavn Smagning 2014 @ J&C’s beer palace, Jutland 28/02/14 cheers to an IP trade with James (jtclockwork).
Dark mahogony brown with a moderate beige head.
Nose is peanut butter alright, sweet licks, cheap chocolate aroma.
Taste is even sweeter, more cheap chocolate, less peanut butter than nose, sugars .
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
So so, a little 1D and cheap chocolate takes over from the peanut butter goodness once the beer passes your lips.

Bottle. The color is a deep brown. The aroma is mostly chocolate with a subtle hint of peanut butter. The taste is an interesting mix, has a corn flavor to it. A good mix of chocolate and peanut butter.

If you like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, this is the beer for you. 12 oz bottle pours dark brown with a medium size beige head. Robust aroma of peanut butter and chocolate. This is a liquid Reese Butter Cup. Peanut butter aroma is stronger than the taste. Taste is peanut butter and then the chocolate. Full body and good balance. Very tasty and intriguing. I definitely liked it but don’t think I would want more than one at one time.

You can definitely taste the chocolate and peanut butter, which is interesting. It’s a little fake tasting and watery but pretty good.

Sweet Baby Jesus! What a beer. Picked up this beauty out of pure intrigue. Chocolate and peanut butter, I was interested to see how they worked together as a porter. Upon opening it had an uncanny resemblance to a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, it pours inky black with a quickly fading tan head. On tasting it was more of one of those trendy Starbucks drinks that incorporates a blood thickening amount to caramel. On the pallet it presents notes of burnt oat and malts that generates a nice mellow lingering finish. Not usually a fan of porters but this one was velvety smooth like an Oscar Wilde jacket.

Thanks to my local AZ crew for hooking up this bottle. I get some peanut butter notes, dry chocolate notes, some bitter earthy flavors. I was hoping for a wow, but I got a beer that’s just above average.

Smells and taste like a peanut butter cup. Don't know how many I could drink before becoming cloying. But the one I had was delicious.

12 oz bottle. Pours clear and golden orange to brown with a small white head. Aroma is sugarish peanut butter. Perfumed peanut. Dry and roasted malty. Herbal and dry into the finish. Perfumed lasting impression.
