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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

3.2 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)

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Another 12 oz. can purchased at The Beer Shoppe, Ardmore, PA. Deep ruby color that light will not penetrate, shows a fluffy thicker head that stays until the last drop of brew. Aroma is caramelized sugar, syrupy molasses and light roast.
Flavor is pretty much what it should be. Heavy on toffee, mild dark fruit with a toasted grain like body. The finish is real sweet with a light fruity note. Body is a bit thin and borderline cloying. Light taste of alcohol. For me it’s just ok.
