3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle provided by Reggiedunlap. Pitch black color with thin off white head in the snifter. Aroma is loads of chocolate with a malted milk balls, like ""Whoppers" candy. Flavor is bakers chocolate, hints of burnt espresso and light vanilla beans. Not a bad base stout but I really don’t get peanut butter any place in the flavor or nose. My expectations may have been a bit high. Mouthfeel is ok. Sorry Kerry, The peanut butter Porter I had before this worked better.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks Chris for sharing this one. Bomber from PA. 1 finger creamy chocolate head with some big and tight bubbles. Pitch Black appearance. Really faint peanut butter aroma, some unsweetened chocolate, a bit of cinnamon, maple and schoolhouse chalk. Chalky taste, I get green pepper at the middle and finish. clove, other herbal spices. Very bitter chocolate chalky finish. Not a HUGE fan based on the description but still a drinkable beer.

Dark brown pour with a medium brown head. Aroma of chocolate, light roast, peanut butter, light vanilla. Very peanut butter cup aroma. Taste is slightly sweet but slightly roasty/bitter. Decent balance. Medium body with medium carb. I’d appreciate slightly more body.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours pitch black into the glass, with a nice tan head that leaves ring lacing. The nose is of peanut butter cups. Huge roasted malts and bitter dark baking chocolates in the mouth, with peanut butter and vanilla beans showing up mid-palate. The finish is a nice bittering chocolate that lingers appropriately. A very unique cross between a breakfast stout, a traditional Impy stout and a foreign stout. Full-bodied and velvety on the palate, the semi-active carbonation provides nice activity to a smooth pull. To be enjoyed as a nightcap, this is very, very nice. I can’t get over the roasts, bitters and chocolates working in tandem so well, without introducing "sweet" lactose sugars (i.e. the milk stout). Complex for days. Substantive and inviting!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Barcade Philly.
Appearance: Black opaque body, creamy tan head.
Aroma: Peanut butter and chocolate mostly. Pretty mild.
Taste: A little astringent, light peanut butter with hints of chocolate.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: I guess I was expecting Sweet Baby Jesus imperial, but this is more balanced. I prefer SBJ still.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks reggiedunlop). Looks good; a slightly translucent very dark cola with foamy beige head. Smells solid; dark malt, chocolate, and vanilla with a bit of peanut butter in the background. Tastes like it smells with a slightly bitterly roasty medium light-bodied mouthfeel. Could be more viscous, but enjoyable nonetheless.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at corked Bethlehem. Pours out almost black with a moderate tan head. Aroma is of rich chocolate, peanut butter, mild roast and some light coffee grounds. Taste is complex. Smooth and silky body. Chocolate, peanut butter, nice balance between the two, some mild toasty notes, roast and a touch of syrupy notes. This one is solid.

Bottle... Pours murky and black with a lightly-tanned head that diminishes quickly. Wonderful aromatic mélange of chocolate, peanut butter and vanilla. Light to medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and jazzy carbonation. The flavor offers big-time vanilla and hazelnuts, but is thin overall. Finishes like a hazelnut and vanilla-flavored brew. The label and nose say peanuts. My taste buds say hazelnuts. I’m confused. Nice beer though. Needs more viscosity to really make it a world-class brew. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!
