3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(12oz bottle) dark brown, soapy and fine tan bubbles. Nose of peanuts, peanut butter, dark bakers chocolate. Taste of creamy peanut butter, watery chocolate, peanuts, cream. The body of the beer is one of its best characteristics. Odd linger is a little bitter though and detracts from the drinking experience the most.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Barcade w/ Allen. Pours deep pitch black color with small but creamy beige head that dissipated quickly. Notes of vanilla, chalk, citrus, chocolate, malts, nuts and the peanut butter really came about as the glass warmed. Smooth as can be and drinkable for a porter. Very nice.

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.

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.

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.
