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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black/brown pour with tan head and lace. Aroma is as advertised large chocolate with a peanut butter kicker. Flavor is sweet chocolate, peanut butter, and a slight roastiness. No hop aroma or flavor. A sweet start and a sweet finish. Medium/full body with good carbonation. I don’t know if it is a porter but I so know it is a good beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep dark brown coloured body with a glowing violet tint at the bottom and a one centimetre tall, very fast dying tan head. Aroma of peanuts, earth, dirt, grass, alcohol, roasted malt, peat and more peanuts. Full-bodied; Very rich flavour at first with roasted malt, earth, toffee, caramel, peat and of course the peanuts and pecans really come through. Aftertaste shows a lot of body still with some oatmeal, raisins, earth, nuts and even a hint of hops come in at the end. Overall, a beer true to the style - a ton of roasty flavours, but even more peanut flavours going on - great if its what you are looking for, but good even if it’s not. A well executed beer and well worth sampling if you can find it! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 12-December-2012 for US$7.99 sampled at home in Washington on 04-April-2013.

4 oz pour on draft shared by Travlr at ChurchKey, thanks Gene! Black with light tan head. Aromas of peanut butter, cocoa, caramel. Tastes of peanut butter, peanuts, chocolate, cocoa, roasty notes.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Nose of deep, strong chocolate and hard, dark roast. The peanut butter is super evident in the glass but not out of the bottle; it’s unmistakable and I’m wondering how they solved a tricky problem in process. Stouty brown-black pour with a creamy, rocky light brown head. Watery light body, smooth and gentle, taste is semi-sweet with pb&c, though they’re backed off and a general smooth porter flavor rules the day. Impressed that this wasn’t a massive failure.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. It pours a dark brown color with a small tan head. The aroma is chocolaty with hints of coffee, sweet peanut butter and heavy cream. The flavor is the same. Strong roast with some sweeter notes of peanuts, but it’s pretty subdued. The body is actually thinner than expected, but full enough. Pretty creamy, but higher carbonation and acidity. Nice porter, and thankfully the peanut butter aspect is pretty light.
