3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle split at GBBF ’14, day 1, 12/08/14 thanks to Ian.
Light black with a moderate tan swirl and edgeing.
Nose is peanut butter, chocolate, toffee fudge.
Taste comprises much the same, good dose of PB - done fairly well, not on the cheap and not overly sweet.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, lightly roasted notes in a lightly drying close.
Decent for what it is, one of the better PB beers.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from GBBF 2014 at home. Clear dark brown pour with small cream head that recedes; lots of UFOs, thankfully they’ve sunk. Strange that I didn’t see them as I poured... Nose of milk chocolate, peanuts, caramel. Like a Lion bar. Taste of moderate sweet caramel, toffee, chocolate is less milky sweet than the nose suggests, peanut, roast malt, light hop bitterness. Dry finish. Fairly light-bodied but decently full mouthfeel, short finish, leaves me unsatisfied. Not a bad beer but the nose promises so much and it just doesn’t deliver the level of chocolate rich smooth full indulgence I wanted from it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Village Wine and Spirits. Strong chocolate nose, with light peanut. Dark brown with a dark tan head. Sweet mild chocolate initial, some vanilla, peanuts, and a touch of coffee. The milk chocolate really stands out. Medium body, a bit oily (peanuts?) Not really peanut butter per se, but the nut character is there. It grew on me. The flavors opened up as it warmed. Interesting and unusual.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours from the bottle with a near black color that glows with a chestnut brown halo around the edges, but there is only a minimal head formed. The aroma is like an Easter basket, with recognizable notes of chocolate and peanuts that are gimmicky but enjoyable. The chocolate and peanut butter come through clearly in the flavor as well, but not in an artificial way. Rather, the nutty, sweet, and cocoa characteristics are similar to those found in other porters, but they are just amplified in this beer. The mouthfeel is thankfully lighter than expected, as this would have been hard to take down if it was thick and syrupy. Overall, I don’t know that I could drink much of this, but the novelty of it is fun.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Milk chocolate, peanut butter nose. Black, quickly fading tan head. Chocolatey but low on the sweetness, some peanut flavors. Full bodied, smooth, finishes surprisingly clean, somewhat minerally.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours pitch black with a medium sized light brown head. Smells strongly of peanut butter and hints of chocolate. Taste is chocolate and peanut butter, pure and simple. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Terrapin Liquid Bliss Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter finishes with a lingering peanut butter sweetness.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours near black with a beige head and a lot of sediment, presumably peanut matter? Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, peanut butter, some light dough and caramel notes, and hints of floral hops. Flavor the same with a nice blend of the porter and chocolate and peanut butter. Average to smoother texture. This chocolate peanut butter porter style is something I am currently digging.

Pretty good. Pours murky dark brown. Peanut and chocolate ara. Some roasted nuts too. Nice smooth body peanut butter and chocolate and hazelnut. Not a ton of peanut butter though. Smooth. Nice.
