3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A good combo for terrapin. Not as syrupy as Duclaw’s SBJ, and this has more of a peanut aroma and taste. Sweet but not overly so. Not too thick, because if it was it would be too sugary. A nice combo of sipping with food and a dessert beer. Tap

The beer isn’t as dark or as thick as I would like when tackling these intense of flavors. Also, the aroma is nice, but the flavor is more roasted peanuts than peanut butter. Great idea, but less than ideal execution.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looks black, but i think it’s very dark brown. Very light nougat colored head that has nice persistence and lacing on my plastic hotel cup.
Roasted peanuts comes through. Smells slightly like another beer I know is brewed with PB2. Malty sweetness hints around the PB.
FLAVOR- Instantly recognizable peanut buttery flavor, that fades away quickly. Body is lighter than expected and feels fairly thin. I was surprised until I reread the label and recognized its a porter, not a stout. The body is on point for porters. The PB is NOT overpowering (which can be common in this style), it’s present to get a nice flavor then fades away slightly to let the light roastiness of the malt finish the sip.
Extremely well done PB porter!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2/05/2016: Aroma of chocolate and roasted nuts, a bit roasty; deep brown-black color, opaque; roasted nuts and malt fallowed by semi-sweet and dark chocolates with a dry, cocoa/bitter chocalate bitterness in the finish that sticks in the back of the throat (maybe that’s from the heavily roasted peanut flavor?), rich, roasty, lots of chocolate and a good accompanying bitterness, balanced and real flavors throughout; medium-full body, slightly thick, but smooth; this is a really good attempt at a chocolate and peanut butter beer that doesn’t quite delivery a Reese’s cup in a bottle, but is perhaps better in that it’s definitely more beer, less candy, and not fake at all; well done Terrapin! 12 fl oz bottle brought back from Asheville, NC.

Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a black color with a large foamy light tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was berry jam, nutty and roasty malts, phenol and vanilla. The flavor was dry, roasty, nutty and had a light berry note. long finish. Medium body. Tasty.

12 oz bottle. Not usually a porter fan. But the two words chocolate and peanut butter called my name. Not a ton of aroma on this but does have a pleasing hint of peanut butter, almost like a Reese's cup. Taste is similar. Pretty sweet and not much on the bitter end. Otherwise a nice dessert winter beer!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is a little funky, like opening a package of organic peanut butter mixed with chocolate covered cherries. Very playful.
Very dark brown appearance with an appropriate sized tan head.
Barely medium bodied with great carbonation and a decently long finish.
Not too bitter for an American style porter.
It’s not bad, but not my favorite.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2016 On tap, poured into an IPA glass. The aroma is kinda like a knock-off Reese’s peanut butter cup with a herbal note. It pours a rich, dark, clear caramel brown with a tan, dense, stiff foam head that retains well and leaves great lacing. The taste is a medium high sweet and medium bitter. The texture is oily with fuzzy carbonation and a medium full body. The flavor is a muted peanut and chocolate with a bread crust and cola note. The finish is crisp with some herbal hints, but mostly a peanut note strengthening and having a slightly dry character. The aftertaste is cola, grains, and peanut butter.

Dark brown with a tan head, and a peanut butter, chocolate, coffee nose. Starts smooth and stays that way. Has peanut butter, dark chocolate, and coffee concentrate in the lasting, bitter finish.
