Deep brown in the glass with minimal off-white head. Aroma of peanut butter and toasted malt. Rich palate with chocolate and peanut butter flavors. Taste reminds me of eating chocolate and peanut butter Easter candies. Really interesting beer.

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.

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, Ive 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. Ive had it too cold on tap and its no good that way. Its excellent if consumed correctly.

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, Im 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 youd expect - Chocolate covered roasted peanuts. Maybe a little coffee in the finish, but not much.
