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 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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(12oz bottle) dark brown, soapy and fine tan bubbles. Nose of peanuts, peanut butter, dark bakers chocolate. Taste of creamy peanut butter, watery chocolate, peanuts, cream. The body of the beer is one of its best characteristics. Odd linger is a little bitter though and detracts from the drinking experience the most.
