3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is sweet and chocolaty with peanut butter and chemicals. The appearance is dark brown with a small head. The taste is like the aroma with a mineral watery quality. The palate is thin. Overall this is disappointing but drinkable.

22oz bomber from Spirits Crossroads. Poured a decent looking black thinner density body under a smaller foamy beige head. Aroma is great, really this smells like a peanut butter cup, loads of peanut butter and chocolate, lightly toasted English muffins. The body is far to thin for this beer and needs to be beefed up, average to light carbonation and a watery mouthfeel overall. Flavor starts off all chocolate and peanut butter, followed by toast, green veggies and candy. The flavor and aroma on this one make this the perfect desert beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours near black with a beige head and a lot of sediment, presumably peanut matter? Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, peanut butter, some light dough and caramel notes, and hints of floral hops. Flavor the same with a nice blend of the porter and chocolate and peanut butter. Average to smoother texture. This chocolate peanut butter porter style is something I am currently digging.

Bottle. The look is dark, cola like, brownish black, with a beige colored head. The smell is nutty, peanuts, a lot of chocolate, dirt dessert, malts, roast, and good. The taste is mostly the same, somewhat incredible to all these flavors i there. Good beer.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours the color of coffee with a visibly light body and thin wispy tan head. Looks kind of flaccid. Nose is weird, like smelling peanut butter from far away after the oil has oxidized. Something in there you could probably call chocolate.... and maybe some dark fruit. Kind of muted on the nose. Flavor is not to my liking... old peanut butter on the finish. Some cacao maybe? Papery and thin with a watery finish/body. Man, ’Liquid Bliss’ may have been a reach in nomenclature here.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Sparrow-Downtown, 12/14/12
Aroma: Pretty much what I expected, chocolate malts and peanut butter (the chocolate is stronger)
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a small light brown head, that leaves light spotty lace
Flavor: The flavor is pretty much the same, chocolate, peanut butter, and a mild earthy bitterness
Palate: This one is fairly creamy, not chunky! (Yes, I know, I know, that was a terrible joke, but I just could not resist), this beer has a soft carbonation, and a smooth feeling medium-plus body to it
As a fan of everything peanut butter and chocolate, I was extremely excited for this one, even though part of me was a bit skeptical as to how it would work in a beer. They proved my skepticism was unnecessary, as it really worked in a beer. Novelty? Absolutely? Novelty that works? Absolutely! Nothing else really needs to be said, obviously I’m a sucker for it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2014 Sweet chocolate, soil, and beets on the nose, I swear. Black, medium tan head with little retention. Mild tobacco flavor. Chocolate and peanut flavor is detectable but wouldn’t be if I hadn’t expected it to be there. Strong bittersweet chocolate and cocoa finish. Alcohol not evident, thin body. More chocolatey than billed, but that is a good thing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from Sam’s, Durham. Is Peanut Butter the new coffee? The new mint or anise? Doubtful, but I enjoyed this one a fair bit. Substantial base porter came across well, with loads of chocolate in the nose and only understated nuttiness. This is a formula, echoed in the flavors, that works to the beer’s benefit since any more PB might have spoiled the balance (and indeed, what works for me appears to be already too much for others). Sweet, rich, and a vague saltiness in the finish that mostly appealed. I dug it but it may be one of those make or break beers.
