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.

3.6 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.

Bottle shared by jheath99. Pours deep, dark brown with creamy tan head. Aroma is chocolate, light roasted malts, peanut butter, light dates, and light earthiness. Flavor is dry, roast malts, chocolate, light peanuts, and light earthy hop bitterness; dry finish with some chocolate lingering. Medium body and carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2014 Updated August 2014 after this one did come out as a regular or seasonal or whatever. It is not the same beer that was 6.7%, because it’s now available in low abv (6.3 % and less) markets in TN and is much less tasty, but still pretty good. Original Side Project rating of 4.8: 650 ml. Opaque black with an eight inch of cream. Smooth rich nose of dark chocolate, earthy caramel and a touch of sweetened peanut butter. Taste is a little more earthy than the aroma indicated, but all the same flavors are there, plus some added vanilla, oak and dark fruit notes. Slightly sweet but balanced well by the roast and earthy flavors. Velvety smooth, medium body has a light tingle from a low-medium carbonation level, and is watery enough to keep from ever becoming sticky. This one should enter the regular rotation, or at the very least become a seasonal.

Draught. Pours an extremely dark brown with a fairly small head on it. Nose was almost exactly like a chocolate peanut butter shake - amazing. Taste was much the same, and felt very smooth. Great beer...

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smoky, malty aroma has an overtone of sweet chocolate and a good note of peanut - smells as if it could have been brewed using Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Pours a luscious warm sable with a fairly thick tan head that leaves good lacing. Flavor has a core of roast malt and notes of chocolate, peanuts - yep, it tastes much like a liquid peanut butter cup - and a hint of molasses. Texture has robust body and good fizz, goes down smoothly and leaves a smoky finish with peanut and chocolate notes and a hint of hops. Delightful and decadent! Makes a good dessert.

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.
