COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full bodied porter that gets its dark luscious color from the generous use of roasted malts. We bring just enough hops to balance out the hefty malt backbone but leave the stars of the show to shine. You will get just the right amount of chocolate and peanut butter to question whether you’re drinking a glass of delicious suds or popping a peanut butter cup in your mouth.

Nice head that dissipates quickly with minimal lacing. Smells like a peanut butter cup. Taste lots of peanut butter, fairly sweet. Good to have just one of or for a dessert beer.

This beer smells heavenly popping the cap off of the bottle - really strong chocolate and peanut butter aromas. It’s not too sweet, though - just enough to keep the flavor in line with the scent. I wouldn’t drink more than one at a time, as it’s a bit heavy (seeing as it’s a porter and all), but definitely a great treat!

12oz bottle from Xroads. Poured a great looking smooth black body with an average sized silky deep beige head. Aroma is great, like a dry peanut butter cup with some dark toast and milk. Flavor is slightly drier than the aroma but other than that it’s basically like drinking a peanut butter cup with some malts and dry hops. I really like this for a dessert beer.

ben4321 (4744) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 5/22/15

Aroma: This one has an amazing aroma, basically a Reece’s peanut butter cup, yes please
Appearance: Pours a dark brown color with small, light brown head and decent lace
Flavor: The flavor of this one is close to the aroma, but brings out the beer qualities, it has a sweetness and a good bitterness that are in-line with chocolate, peanut butter, and dry roasted peanuts.
Palate: The body is medium, fairly clean feel, with a lively carbonation leads to a semi-dry finish
Overall Impression: This is super legit. Way exceeded my expectations. It has a great Reece’s cup aroma which leads right into the kind of flavor that you would expect from a Reece’s peanut butter cup beer, but somehow has a bunch of beer components too. I want more of this, which makes it unlike pretty much anything else Horny Goat I have had. If you like Peanut Butter Cups, you’ll absolutely enjoy this one.

Bottle at brewery. Deep brown with light brown head. Peanut butter, peanut shells, roasted malts, milk chocolate and white bread. Has a creamy sweet taste and finishes with a dry peanut shell finish. Body is medium with a fizzy feel.

Beaver (1456) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 12, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a big creamy brown head that retains well and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is strong roast chocolate and peanut butter.

The flavor is roast chocolate and big peanut butter and a bit of an acidic finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, very interesting lots of roasted chocolate and peanut butter.

ARH (824) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2015
On tap at American Beer Classic. The aroma is that of a peanut butter cup candy. It’s a dark, malty brown beer with a brown head that’s light, but dense with an ok retention, and a light lace. The beer is a medium high sweet with a medium bitter support. It’s creamy with a light fizz carbonation and a medium full body that tastes like peanut butter ice cream with chocolate syrup in a wafel cone. The finish has a mocha like character to it that carries into the mild mocha and peanut butter cup aftertaste.

Pours nicely with foamy head; dark but not black. Sweet scents of the peanut butter and chocolate, not overpowering. Taste is cocoa, peanut butter, caramel with some other nutty undertones. Nice clean somewhat bitter finish; smoky undertones at the aftertaste seem out of place. Good beer.
