4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma- Has a unique aroma of cocoa, peanut butter and malts, nice.
Appearance- Damn near black in color and has a small tannish head.
Taste- A taste of malt with a chocolate backdrop. This is surprisingly good.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with a moderate of carbonation. Slightly oily texture.
Overall- Definitely one of the better chocolate/peanut butter porters/stouts that I have tried, I have had a couple of other beers similar in style but this is one of the more successful - a nice combination of flavors without a lot of associated sweetness. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this one.

That bocktown monaca is a pretty nice beer tasting place. Lots of good beers there that rotate continuously. Slight smell of peanuts. Stay away from this if you are allergenic. First taste is bubbly dark mild beer with just enough of a hint to know its PB, not jelly. Rather friendly. Not over the top in any way. Finish is mild to medium roasty beer. Good porter and the peanut butter is well balanced. Good job terry.

12oz bottle. Oily black with no head. Aroma is sweet candy-ish chocolate. Sweet, but more dark chocolatey than the aroma. Definitely a dessert beer.

Draught pours into the glass with an opaque mahogany pour, a healthy choco-tan head that leaves wash lace. Huge roasted peanut butter nose. Flavors are of semi-sweet and dark chocolates, peanut butter, roasted malt and finishes with a perfectly-roasted peanut. The body is medium, the mouthfeel creamy, yet active on the palate. Delicious side project Porter here! Yummy.

Peanut butter on the nose with mild roast character. Appearance is a dark brown with a tan head with poor retention. Flavor tastes like a chocolate wafer with peanut butter. Mouthfeel is medium with medium low carbonation. Overall, the beer is decent, but I'd prefer more carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance Black bodied beer with a light khaki head that is short but creamy. There is some traces of lacing, and the head fades to a very thin layer rather quickly.
Aroma: There is a peanut-like aroma...I’d say it’s pretty close to smelling a jar of peanut butter. It smells nice but that’s the only thing I pick up.
Taste: There is a very mellow peanut flavor here but I’m not picking up any chocolate. It’s important to note that the label says "chocolate peanut butter porter." Chocolate is listed first but it doesn’t show up to this party. There is a bit of a woody aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: It has a pretty good mouthfeel. I wouldn’t say it’s a completely full bodied beer but it’s close to full. It is pretty smooth and easy enough to drink.
Overall: It was a decent beer but I wouldn’t call it liquid bliss. If you’re really into peanut butter I think you’d enjoy this beer. It has a good peanut flavor. If you are a chocolate lover I think you would be disappointed. The porter (just the beer) is average at best.

Bottle. Dark brown pour. Really nice nose that starts with dark chocolate and coffee and then hits a higher level with sweet and creamy peanut butter. Flavor has those dark chocolate notes but, instead of sweet peanut butter, is complemented by earthy peanuts. Starts as a phenomenal peanut butter porter and finishes as an above average peanut porter.

Bottle to shaker. Pours deep red that appears black, light tan quick head, no lacing or retention. Aroma of chocolate syrup and nuts. Tastes like a peanut butter cup, just not as sweet. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, sticky mouth feel. Finishes sweet that bitters at the very end. Tasting notes of chocolate, coffee with cream, burnt malt, nuts and toffee. As strange as this is, it’s not bad!
