3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled from bottle @ ChrisO after GBBF day 3. Dark brown to black color with a red glare coming through, average sized off-white to light brown head. Aroma is malts and loads and loads of chocolate. Taste malts, chocolate, quite a lot of vanilla, light to moderately bitter. Medium body and carbonation. A bit too much vanilla for me, but a pretty nice beer for sure.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brownish-black pour with a medium tan head that dissipates slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate, malt and peanut butter. Medium-bodied with flavors of milk chocolate, peanut butter and roast malt. The finish is peanut butter cup and malt. Comparable to Willoughby’s, tasty and enjoyable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Capone’s. Pours turbid thick jet blackish with 2-finger tan head. Nose was roasty choc malty, nuts, cacao. Tasted rich, with big notes of cacao, nuts, peanut oil, roasty dark malt, and a true overall feeling of drinking a liquid Reese cup, albeit not as sweet. This one was a true delight.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at GBBF 2014. It pours near black with minimal beige head. The nose rich roast, sweet peanut butter, salty, husk, grain and cocoa. The taste is toast, roasted malt, mild acidity, wood, twig, toast, light sweetness, nut and coffee with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Nose is brilliant but taste is a bit weak. Solid anyhow.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at a Taco Mac. Pours near black with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a good amount of sweet chocolate with light roasted malts and a hint of bitterness underlying. Flavor begins with roasted malts and dark grains with sweet chocolate growing through the finish and just a hint of peanuts.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from a 22oz bottle, at a large-scale bottle share. At the time, the message somehow didn’t get across to me that this was a peanut butter porter, but in retrospect, that makes sense. Dark brown color. Minimal light brown / tan head. Some rich, nutty marzipan-like aroma. Very nice cake-like rich sweeter-light bitter flavor. Good nuttiness, nice rich bread, good toastiness. Very nice flavor profile. At the time I figured this was an imperial brown ale, and I thought it made for a good one.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought ntoes of dark chocolate, roast, coffee, big peanuts, buttery coconut notes, hints of a hint of dark fruit, some slight dark espresso bean notes, nice. Taste is a mix of sweet caramel toffee, lanilla, some artificial peanut notes into a bit of toffee, dark chocolate, finishing bitter, dry. Too bad, the aroma was so good.

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.
