Split a 22oz bottle. Poured a dark brown, almost black color with a small brown head. Aroma was a touch of peanuts, peanut butter, chocolate. Flavor was some roasted peanuts, chocolate. Bought it for the novelty value, but it was a lot better than I had expected it would be. Very good.

Sampled at esbls. This is like drinking chocolate peanut butter. Chocolate covered peanuts with peanut butter is closer. So tasty.

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.

bottle shared by tom10101, thanks! pours clear light brown with a decent light beige head, some retention. roastiness, and not quite nutty - very peanut buttery, some chocolatey notes. average cabronation, light body, short grassy finish. original but slightly off-putting. still... decent drinkability unless peanut butter never enters your normal breakfast diet.

On cask at Rustico - Alexandria. Whoa, loads of peanuts. Some roast and faint chocolate. Dry finish. Tastes like peanut skin. Medium body. Quite odd.

This poured a medium to darker brown color with a beige head. Aroma was of light roast, light and dark chcolate, marshmellows, and lgiht peanuts. Flavor was sweeter and the marshmellows really came through more than the nuts, with lots of chocolate there too. Reminded me more of a mallo cup than a peanutbutter cup.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep dark brown coloured body with a glowing violet tint at the bottom and a one centimetre tall, very fast dying tan head. Aroma of peanuts, earth, dirt, grass, alcohol, roasted malt, peat and more peanuts. Full-bodied; Very rich flavour at first with roasted malt, earth, toffee, caramel, peat and of course the peanuts and pecans really come through. Aftertaste shows a lot of body still with some oatmeal, raisins, earth, nuts and even a hint of hops come in at the end. Overall, a beer true to the style - a ton of roasty flavours, but even more peanut flavours going on - great if its what you are looking for, but good even if it’s not. A well executed beer and well worth sampling if you can find it! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 12-December-2012 for US$7.99 sampled at home in Washington on 04-April-2013.

On tap at Kickbacks during RBWG. Pours a very dark brown with medium beige head. Coffee roast and chocolate aroma. Thin mouthfeel with strong coffee roast, chocolate, spice and lingering dry finish.
