3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep brown, light brown head. Flavors are all chocolate with a light hint of peanuts. Very oily and slick mouthfeel. A bit overdone on the chocolate but that’s ok by me!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Pours midnight black with a large, creamy, beige head. Decent retention. The aroma is too restrained, but it’s very similar to Shorts Über Goober Oatmeal Stout – peanut butter and chocolate components are the names of the game, but a little vanilla squeezes itself in. Medium-bodied with a thin mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor provides peanut butter and dark chocolate – kind of like a Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup, but dumbed way on down. Well-balanced. Unfortunately, there’s not a whole lot of residual sugar here which I think would have enhanced this particular beer. Finishes crisp and a touch peanut-buttery with only a whisper of salt at the wee end. Too conservative with the peanuts, but I guess I’m spoiled by Funky Buddha’s Don’t Tell Reece. A pleasant experience overall and its drinkability is stupid high.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home, thanks to homer321. Pours a dark brown appearance with a dark brown head. Aroma has a ton of peanuts along with toffee / caramel, chocolate, and some herbal notes. Dessert forward aroma. Thin body. A bit acidic. Moderately sweet and bitter. Tons of peanut butter and chocolate in the mouth. A little earthy and herbal on the finish. Not overly sweet like expected but I’m also not crazy about the peanut flavor.

Bottle. Peanut butter, toffee, and chocolate aroma - like a Butterfinger. Dark brown with minimal head. Lightly sweet peanut butter toffee and chocolate malt flavor. Good body. Very tasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. BB 12/26/14. 6.1%. (World Market) Chattanooga, TN.
Pitch black colour with a tiny light tan head.
Roasted malt, chocolate, peanut butter, sweetness and Mars bar in the aroma. It’s exactly what it claims to be.
The flavour is roasted malt, a ton of dark chocolate, sweetness and some mild hops. Great brew. I’m not a huge fan of peanut butter but here it works nicely.

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.

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.

3.5 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.

Fantastic nose of peanut butter (60) and chocolate (40) just pops right out of the glass. feel is thin but super smooth, as is the flavor, which i also loved. They hit the nail on the head with this. 12 oz.
