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.

Like a dark chocolate peanut butter bar. Pours black with OK head. Light bitter, toasty finish. Ok but not my thing. Tap at pizzeria paradiso.

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.

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.

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.
