Brewed for San Diego Beer Week 2012 An English-style Brown Porter brewed with organic peanut powder, cocoa nibs, and vanilla beans. The resulting brew is a beer’s answer to the peanut butter cup – a medium-bodied porter with smooth layers of peanut butter and milk chocolate. Stats: 5.6% ABV – 56 SRM – 30 IBU

On draft at Breakwater Brewing. An absolute peanut butter bomb of a beer. The aroma has PB to it, the taste and finish both are loaded with chocolate and PB! Great brew!

Tap at The Local in San Diego. Pours brown with some ruby around the edges and a small khaki head. Aroma of chocolate and peanut butter, some light roast, hazelnuts. Flavor follows more hazelnut than peanut bitter, some lightly roasted chocolate, and a nice bitter finish that keeps this from being cloying like other peanut butters I have had. Went well with peanut butter cups the bartender gave me. Relatively light bodied and this came off like a super flavorful but brown. That isn't a bad thing, and this is pretty good. Would have again.

I know this froufrou calamity is probably the antithesis of those hardbarked ales that I love, but this rich, playful, intensely aromatic brew is my Achilles heel. I’m pretty excited about the idea of spooning vanilla ice cream into a mug of this stuff. Dessert valhalla.

Draft. A weird murky brown pour, practically no head. Chocolate, starts with a sharpness which isn’t so great, sweet peanut butter, nuttiness, and sugar. Too candy like, not my thing.

On tap @ Beachwood BBQ. Very dark brown pour with a tan head. Nice peanut butter aroma. Cocoa, light vanilla, roasted malt, and caramel sweetness. Flavor is a touch bitter from the cocoa nibs, but has a nice vanilla and caramel sweetness. Peanut butter, roasted malt, coffee, and just a hint of licorice.

Barreras (999) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Pours a deep brown color with a nutty caramel aroma. Taste is roasted nuts mixed with caramel and a hint of peanut butter. A distinct coco flavor throughout, mixed with malt. A decent beer made by reputable Karl Strauss.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Cask. Pours with a clear, lighter brown hued body with a tan head. Aromas are of vanilla, cocoa, chocolate, leather, a bit nutty and lightly estery. Flavors are chocolatey, mild anise, nutty, earthy, peanut butter. Dusty chocolate character. Earthy cocoa nibs. A bit thin (which is a slight disappointment), low carbonation.

On tap at Press Box in San Diego. Pours a clear amber-orange color with tiny head. Aroma is vanilla and peanut butter. Taste is spot-on for a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup: chocolate and peanut butter. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. No alcohol burn. Really good if you like Reese’s.
