3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12/16/12. Bomber from Grassroots Natural Market. Rich black pour with a nice tan head that cuts to a ring and laces slightly. Earthy aroma with cocoa and roasted peanuts and a hint of that peanut skin aspect... it doesn’t strike me all that much as "peanut butter," honestly. Roasted malt hits the tongue right away with ash, chocolate, and light roasted coffee. The flavor follows with cocoa powder, a hint of sweetness, and that earthy peanut aspect again. Once again, it doesn’t strike me that much like peanut butter. Not a bad brew by any means, but it definitely isn’t what I was hoping for at all.

I guess I kinda lost control, because in the middle of the play I ran up and lit the evil puppet villain on fire. No, I didn’t. Just kidding. I just said that to help illustrate one of the human emotions, which is freaking out. Another emotion is greed, as when you kill someone for money, or something like that. Another emotion is generosity, as when you pay someone double what he paid for his stupid puppet.

Bottle. Dark and opaque, what little air is embedded in it delivers not much more than a little swirl on top. The aroma is sweet and chocolate-laden, hinting at a rich one. Indeed, this drinks with a full-on cocoa front, followed by a sweet creaminess that must be a product of the peanut butter. Well done. (#4985, 4/15/2013)

Tallahassee, Fl - on tap at Proof. Dark black pour, thickish khaki colored head. Nice aroma of black potting soil, a hint of peanut butter. Flavor has the same general essence with the peanut butter being on the forefront and a pleasant addition to the usual chocolate porter notes. Chocolate plays along nicely as does the potting soil notes in the back end. Thick, rich mouthfeel. Rather enjoyed this one.

22 oz. bottle sample. Pours dark brown in color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweetened peanut butter, chocolate, light roast and a hint of earth. The carbonation was low, but it could have been opened for a bit before I tasted it.

Bottle to snifter (thanks newcigarz). Best by 11/19/14. Looks good; a fairly opaque dark chocolate with foamy light beige head. Smells solid; peanut butter, dark malt, dark chocolate, and a bit of roast. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Nose of deep, strong chocolate and hard, dark roast. The peanut butter is super evident in the glass but not out of the bottle; it’s unmistakable and I’m wondering how they solved a tricky problem in process. Stouty brown-black pour with a creamy, rocky light brown head. Watery light body, smooth and gentle, taste is semi-sweet with pb&c, though they’re backed off and a general smooth porter flavor rules the day. Impressed that this wasn’t a massive failure.
