3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Appearance: black/brown with little tan head. Aroma: chocolate, peanuts and roasted malts. Taste: very chocolate and dried fruit porter like with finish of peanut butter and roastiness. Mouthfeel: really thin and little carbonation. Overall: one of the better Terrapin side projects. Wish it were a little thicker but is very well balanced with peanut butter and chocolate flavors (two of my favorite flavors together). Neither flavor is overwhelming and could even be a little stronger with both and be a little better.

Have had this twice now and have liked it both times. I think they balanced the peanut butter, chocolate, and roasty porter flavors quite well. Never once was I off put by any overly sweet or artificial flavors. The body of the beer is a bit light for a typical Terrapin Side Project. I think everyone wants to compare this to an Imperial Stout but it simply isn’t that. This is a porter, admittedly a chocolate porter, but there isn’t anything imperial about it. Those who are complaining that the beer isn’t heavy enough are missing the point. They added opulent flavors to a beer in a delicate way with a great deal of finesse and success. This is quite drinkable. I’ll buy some more for myself. Well done.

Black with little to no head. Aroma is slight peanut with roasted cocoa. Flavor is chocolate peanut butter as promised. Somewhat reminiscent of a Nutter Butter. Unfortunately lacking on body which could really round this out. Still rather tasty though.

Pours an opaque brownish-black from the cask with no real head or lacing to speak of. Aroma of roasted malts, peanut, coffee, and slight dark chocolate. Taste is way more of the peanut and chocolate than the smell. Great stuff, well balanced, interesting, a good dessert beer.

Ok beer. The aroma is roasted malts and a little vanilla. The color is black and cloudy. The taste is a muffled mess.

Draft at Brick Store. Pours dark brown with thick tan head. Aroma of chocolate and light peanut butter. Taste has huge chocolate flavor with peanuts in the finish. Peanuts not overly done. Like a liquid Reese cup. Decent.
