After avoiding the last half-dozen or so Side Projects due to my lack of interest in their styles, I was so excited when I heard that this one, a peanut butter chocolate Porter, would be their next release. I picked up a bottle as soon as it hit my local shop. 22oz bottle poured into a snifter. Drank this one alone. Pours a deep dark impenetrable black with a thin beige head. I can hear this one fizzle and pop away, and before I know it, there isnít a trace of lace left. Underwhelming nose - chocolate, dry husky grains, and a bit of molasses. I expected a bit more potency. After watching the frothy head dissipate so quickly, I thought this was going to be a bubbly mess. But really, this has such a pleasant creamy feel, and a perfect silky finish. They really nailed the mouth feel on this one. The flavor profile, unfortunately, also leaves me wanting. A good milky chocolate flavor starts this off, but sadly, also holds up the middle, and then closes it out. The PB presence, if any, is faintly noted in the aftertaste. I expected and wished for more PB flavor, but alas, I am let down. They really pulled off the chocolate part of the equation, but fell short on the PB part, which I think intrigued most people into buying this. I can get a chocolate-based Porter any day, so this really isnít anything special. A decent beer, but it doesnít deliver as advertised.

12 oz bottle. Pours a deep brown with a two finger khaki head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma of roasted chocolate malt and peanut butter. Taste is bittersweet chocolate, roasted chocolate malts, and peanut butter. Long, dry finish of roasted chocolate malts. Heavy, drinks like a stout. Full bodied, creamy texture, low carbonation. Exactly as advertised. Very good desert beer here.

Bottle at craft ale house. Pours black with a medium sized brown head. The aroma has huge peanut butter peanuts, chocolate, as described. The taste has light peanut butter, chocolate, nutty finish. Very nice.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 Iíd expect out of a chocolate peanut butter porter than Purple Monkey Dishwasher.
Taste: The peanut butter isnít as prominent in the flavor, in-fact I donít 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 itís 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 itís a solid porter so I feel that it still deserves a 7. Not a bad price, just donít expect the richness of Sweet Baby Jesus.

Damico (2452) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2014
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. Iíve 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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I havenít 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. Itís 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 Reeseís 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. Itís 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 isnít that high in ABV. Little bit thin on the back.
