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.

Dark pour, thin tan head. Nose is peanut butter, hint dark roast. Bittersweet. Middle is sweet dark roast malt and spoonfuls of peanut butter. Finish has a brief hop kick. Not for everyday, but this was fun.

Pours a pitch black opaque body with a tan 1/5th inch head. Head retention and lacing are good. Smell is of crushed reeses pieces, tons of peanut butter and chocolate. Straight up candy aromas, get whiffs of milkshake also. A little bit of roasted malts are there, no hops or alcohol. Taste is of roasted peanuts, melted milk chocolate, and reeses pieces. A slight dry bitterness comes through, similar to pure dark chocolate. No hops present and alcohol even for 6.5 percent, is extremely light. Mouthfeel is kinda light for a chocolate peanut butter porter, carbonation levels are high. Head offered a decent amount of texture to the beer. Overall this beer was a pretty good dessert beer. Lots of peanut beer and chocolate but not sickly sweet. I have a soft spot for peanut butter so my review might be biased, would definitely buy again.

Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of peanutbutter, cocoa and roastiness. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of peanutbutter, cocoa and light roastiness with a smooth lingering peanutbutter finish.

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.

katejfrench (1) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2015 does not count
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 (4839) - 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.
