2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours deep brown, with a thick, syrupy body. The peanut aroma was unmistakeable; however, its earthy flavor reminded me more of peanut shells than of peanut butter. The chocolate flavor was overshadowed by the taste of peanut husks. It also seemed to have a smoky quality--almost like ashes. As a peanut butter lover, I had high hopes for this one but was disappointed.

2.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Eric and served in a tulip. Opened to celebrate National Peanut Butter Day: Pours a clean deep brown hue with a fizzy fading head and not much lacing. The aroma has notes of peanuts and walnuts along with moderate roast, chocolate and some leathery esters. A hint of herbal hop and cola like syrupy twang. The taste is pretty much that of a standard run of the mill porter, nutty and roasty with a dash of chocolate. Very minimal hop notes and some weird artificial taste on the finish. Even more than the lack of actual Reese Peanut Butter Cup I was so hoping to have is the overwhelming soda like carbonation that just is off-putting. While I like the idea, the execution was terribly flawed leaving me with a standard porter that is over carbonated. Yet another disappointing offering from this brewery.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Abouta 1 cm thick brown head of varying sized bubbles from a vigorous pour. Distinct peanut aroma with some roasted grains, light milk chocolate and some dark fruit. I am really diggin’ this aroma. Color is a very dark brown. Ohhh, flavor is... different. More peanuts along with some dark coffee, burnt toast and a hint of tartness. Kind of watery palate and lingering chalky dryness. Mouth feel is not a plus. Weak finish that is basically just dry and chalky. Not something I would really recommend. Starts off very promising and then goes south.

On draft at Funky Buddha. I know I’m being a tough critic here but as far as peanut butter beers go this one just totally lacks in comparison to any others I may have tried within the last year. Taste more like flat root beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pint pour of healthy darkness with nice full khaki head. Nose opens to rich chocolate and healthy peanut but starts all chocolate with no peanuts. Flavor is the same and opens nicely, followed by nice roasted malts as well. Turned out to be quite drinkable. Better on draft than bottle.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pour of dark black with a small disappearing tan head. Aroma of big toasted chocolate malt with hints of coffee and a very hidden smell of peanut butter. Taste along the same lines with faint peanut butte aftertaste. Med body beer with a light smooth mouth feel and a me finish of peanut butter. Over all very smooth and drinkable porter but the peanut butter is not as big of a taste as I had hoped.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pleasantly surprised by this. The look and aroma are nothing special, but for a porter brewed with peanut butter, it tastes pretty good. It has a fairly simple porter tastes at first but finishes with just enough peanut butter to give it a unique and satisfying taste.
