3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from ABC Clermont. Pours a nice Porter brown with light tan head. Nose is peanut butter, peanut shells, and light chocolate. Flavor starts with some light chocolate, peanuts, peanut shells, and a drying in the finish. Light in body and interesting peanut butter twist.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sable beer, tan head. I hate Terrapin labels. Standard 12oz longneck. Liked the aroma - smells more like toasted almonds and hazelnuts to me than peanuts - sweetish, choco, nuts, vanilla. Body is on the lightish side. The draw is smooth, lightly roasty, nutty. The bitterness is all alcohol and roast. Finishes out lightly sweet. There’s an occasional bit of tinniness in the high palate, but that’s a very minor critique. Overall, pretty decent, a nice novelty, but I wouldn’t want to consume more than one in a sitting. Thanks to PorterPounder for the trade.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a clear, very dark brown body with a few glimmers of ruby when it catches the light. Modestly-sized, light beige head.
Smell: Dark maltiness, hints of sweetish chocolate, caramel and gentle roast mingled with the butter whats made of peanuts. Thin sliver of dark fruitiness.
Taste: Chocolate laced dark malts with the growing peanut butter flavor surrounding it like a German death squad. Hints of black olive, dark fruit. Rise of blonde caramel. Minimal hop character and bitterness. Semi-dry finish, soft in feel, with lingering flavors of peanuts.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Agreeably sleek mouthfeel.
Overall: Better than anticipated! Admittedly, while I don’t have any particular beef with p-butter, I’ve never really reveled in it. As a kid, I ducked PBJ sandwiches and would readily trade away Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups come Halloween.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

That bocktown monaca is a pretty nice beer tasting place. Lots of good beers there that rotate continuously. Slight smell of peanuts. Stay away from this if you are allergenic. First taste is bubbly dark mild beer with just enough of a hint to know its PB, not jelly. Rather friendly. Not over the top in any way. Finish is mild to medium roasty beer. Good porter and the peanut butter is well balanced. Good job terry.

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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Vol 18. 22oz bottle, foil wrapped. Pours black. Smells of cocoa powder, hints of chopped peanuts. Tastes sweet, dark cocoa, loads of chocolate. Finished with the slightest hints of peanut butter. Flavor is just right. The notes are there! Body was a lot thinner than expected. Almost a watery texture. The flavors made up for light body. (3822)

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.
