3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. It pours a dark brown color with a small tan head. The aroma is chocolaty with hints of coffee, sweet peanut butter and heavy cream. The flavor is the same. Strong roast with some sweeter notes of peanuts, but it’s pretty subdued. The body is actually thinner than expected, but full enough. Pretty creamy, but higher carbonation and acidity. Nice porter, and thankfully the peanut butter aspect is pretty light.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ Habersham Beverage / Savannah GA --- Opaque black with brown head cover, wide bands of lace. Taste is toasted malt with some chocolate, followed by lots of peanut. A reasonable brew, but not all that appealing on several levels.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC. Dark brown pour with a frothy khaki head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted nuts. The taste is pretty incredible with peanut butter hitting the tongue first followed by a chocolatey finish. The flavors are very well balanced for a tasty and very drinkable brew. Easily exceeded my expectations. Great beer!

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.
