Bottle. Super dark cola. The aroma is intense chocolate and peanut butter with a faint smoke/roasted note in the background. Both the taste and mouthfeel start out thin and light, but instantly the peanut butter kicks in leading to a big, rich finish. The chocolate provides a sweetness balance on the finish too. Excellent desert beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Best by November 19, 2014.<br
Appearance: Opaque chestnut/brown body, sort of muddy looking, with a tall and dense tan head. The head has fine carbonation bubbles and good retention.
Aroma: The aroma is prominent with peanut butter followed by semi-sweet chocolate and a light roasted malt presence. The aroma is very nice, not as rich as Sweet Baby Jesus, but more in-line with what I’d expect out of a chocolate peanut butter porter than Purple Monkey Dishwasher.
Taste: The peanut butter isn’t as prominent in the flavor, in-fact I don’t really get much until the finish. The intro has a tinge of astringency to it with a dark chocolate presence, a bit thin on the intro even. The back end picks up hints of chocolate and a dash of roast with a lingering cocoa nib presence. This really lacks after the aroma, but it’s solid for a porter anyway, just not in the same league as Sweet Baby Jesus.
Palate: A bit watery with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Not a bad price and a solid porter when all is said and done. I struggled with the taste rating though. I almost gave it 6 for lacking in peanut butter or chocolate flavor, but it’s a solid porter so I feel that it still deserves a 7. Not a bad price, just don’t expect the richness of Sweet Baby Jesus.

Pours thick dark unclear brown with a small beige head. Aroma brings pleasant thick peanuts so nice in the nose fresh. Flavor brings some bitter malts but not much chocolate really with peanuts at first that die quickly.

Decent peanutbutter porter. Plenty of peanutty aroma and a smooth peanutty flavor. I can dig it.

Bottle shared with a friend. Pours dark black with a tan head that lingers for a long time. Aroma of chocolate, nuts and malt. Taste of chocolate with hint of peanut butter that lingers on your tongue. I’ve had better chocolate peanut butter beers, but this one is decent for the price.

As peanut butter porters go, this one is pretty bland. It's just weak. There are much better versions out there.

I haven’t been drinking too much lately, but I have been looking forward to trying this one for a while now. Decided to go ahead and pick up a sixer while I was out grocery shopping today. Pours a dark cola brown with a thin off-white head that fizzes away rather quickly. There is no denying the presence of peanut butter in the aroma. It’s like sticking your nose in a jar of jiff. There is a layer of milk chocolate present in there as well. It kind of smells like Reese’s Peanut butter cereal. I love peanut butter though so there is nothing wrong with that. Flavor is a bit more complex than the aroma. The peanut butter and chocolate are still present but are balanced by some nice black coffee like bitterness, and a nice toasted malt presence. It’s quite delicious. I would actually be okay with a bit more peanut butter flavor. The palate is a bit prickly but goes down smooth. Nicely carbonated for a porter. Overall a very enjoyable beer. Glad to see this one sitting on the shelf in six packs now.

Almost black pour. Chunks of something in there. Small tan head. Little bit of lacing. Slight chocolate aroma. Some malt and a bit of nut. Chocolate taste. Some malt. A bit of heat, which is strange as it isn’t that high in ABV. Little bit thin on the back.

Out of the bottle at the Porter Pub in Atlanta -- Very interesting for sure. Drinks like a peanut butter dessert drink. Very good at first. It wears on you slightly as it continues. This would be a great beer to share in small to medium quantities with friends. A beer that makes you wonder how they crafted it, for sure. A pleasant oddity. I would still like to drink it again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes. Rcvd in trade.
This one was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice dark brown close to black color with a gentle white to off white one finger head that dissipated within about less than thirty seconds.
The aroma smelled just like peanut butter was thrown into a chocolate based Porter.
The taste was sweet and roasty as it rolled over my taste buds. It really tasted nice.
On the palate, this one sat right at a medium on the body with a fairly good sessionability about it. The carbonation triggered a light harshness but it wasn’t anything overbearing.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good executed peanut butter porter. I was skeptical. Though I absolutely love peanut butter for what it is, and had some bad peanut butter flavored beers in the past, this was definitely one of the better ones.
