3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a clear, very dark brown body with a few glimmers of ruby when it catches the light. Modestly-sized, light beige head.
Smell: Dark maltiness, hints of sweetish chocolate, caramel and gentle roast mingled with the butter whats made of peanuts. Thin sliver of dark fruitiness.
Taste: Chocolate laced dark malts with the growing peanut butter flavor surrounding it like a German death squad. Hints of black olive, dark fruit. Rise of blonde caramel. Minimal hop character and bitterness. Semi-dry finish, soft in feel, with lingering flavors of peanuts.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Agreeably sleek mouthfeel.
Overall: Better than anticipated! Admittedly, while I don’t have any particular beef with p-butter, I’ve never really reveled in it. As a kid, I ducked PBJ sandwiches and would readily trade away Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups come Halloween.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from jbruner (thanks!). Pours jet black with decent tan head. Head doesn’t linger long. Aroma is hot chocolate and nutty. Taste is like a reese’s PB cup with less sweetness. Wins the war against Duclaw’s SBJ in my opinion...thicker, less candy-sweetness and deeper flavor here. Inclusion of the peanuts adds nice depth. Still easy to drink at 6.7% ABV.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a great porter, it combines the taste of peanuts really well with the dark chocolate falvors that are naturally prevalent on a porter. The taste is very crisp and it stands out, Loads of peanuts up front followed by the chocolate of the porter. This is a beer I wish I could have more off.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Hop City. Pours a dark opaque brown with a ring of tan head. Aroma is exactly what you want with this style of beer, like a Reese’s cup. Taste is stronger on the roasted malts than most.

I had this limited release fresh and on-tap at Terrapin Brewery. I typically only have 2 pints of anything, but this one was different. I had 5 or 6 or 7. I COULD NOT get enough of it.

Fun beer that reminds me of a reeses peanut butter cup. Peanuts and chocolate are big with a little roastyness and a sweet finish. I like my 4 oz pour of this one but idk how i would handle a big pour.
