2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle -- big thanks to the michiganer that tipped me this! A lot of people are doing peanut butter porters these days, but I don’t think I’ve seen anything that involved just peanut puree... You can get peanut in the flavor, not too strong, but there. Unfortunately, this is very sour. Bottle is infected for sure. Taste is almost nothing but sourness -- maybe a light bit of bitterness. There might be some peanut in the nose, but what is predominant is the tart funky sourness. Peanut aroma is very nice in the aftertaste, though (once the big abrupt sour taste finishes), as well as good creamy oats. Luckily those flavors outlast the sour. Dark brown, near black color. No head or lace. Medium body, very thin. Just a light (pretty nice) chewiness in the finish. Lighter, kind of rougher, abrupt carbonation. Sipping this is kind of miserable, really, the aftertaste is all that keeps me going. You have to get through the thin body, rough texture, and sour taste to get to that awesome oaty peanuty aftertaste. It’s still a sour, kind of gross beer, though. Would love to re-rate a fresh example if I ever get the opportunity.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours an inky black with a huge brown head. Big aroma, of oatmeal, malt, nuts, caramel, and a hint of some juicy fruit. Taste is an odd blend of sharp sparkly malt, nuts, and tart citrus, with sweeter creamy caramel and peanut butter. Lingering tart nutty bite. This is a weird beer.

Opaque black beer, small tan head. Nose of unshelled peanuts! Light dry palate, crispy. Mild dark malts with unsweet peanut and mild minerals. Interesting contrast between the Porter like tangy dark malt and the earth peanut. Slightly weird - but tasty!

Bottle shared by afdempse. Thanks Adam!
The beer appears a dark brown shade with a small beige head.
The aroma is quite interesting, with notes of roast, light chocolate, sweet malts, dark fruits, and a prominent scent of you guessed it...peanuts. It smells like we’re gonna get drunk at the circus.
The flavor brings mostly peanuts, along with some roast character and a mild funk presence. The beer is well done, albeit another wild idea from Short’s. Intriguing and fun, I enjoyed this beer and would have it again. A small sample was plenty for me, however.

Nice dark pour. Small tan coloured head. Chocolate peanut cigarette butt and bitter coffee aroma. Tastes better with no cigarette but some lactic sourness. Black coffee and chocolate covered peanut butter. Nice thick body. I love shorts but wasnt into this one.

Bottle. Poured a black color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate toasted chocolate aroma. Medium sweet chocolate flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a soft sweet beer.
