3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes. Rcvd in trade.
This one was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice dark brown close to black color with a gentle white to off white one finger head that dissipated within about less than thirty seconds.
The aroma smelled just like peanut butter was thrown into a chocolate based Porter.
The taste was sweet and roasty as it rolled over my taste buds. It really tasted nice.
On the palate, this one sat right at a medium on the body with a fairly good sessionability about it. The carbonation triggered a light harshness but it wasn’t anything overbearing.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good executed peanut butter porter. I was skeptical. Though I absolutely love peanut butter for what it is, and had some bad peanut butter flavored beers in the past, this was definitely one of the better ones.

Aroma of peanut butter cups. Pours black with tan lacing. Taste is peanut butter cup and slight deep fruits and a hint of iron. Good stuff.

Bottle. The peanut butter is subtle and nearly unpredictable (to me) under the hops and malts. The chocolate is prominent though - tastes as if cacao nibs were involved rather than cocoa powder. I also appreciate the 6.7% abv which allows for a mellower brew and head space for an extra beer if your up for it.

Pours very dark brown. Aroma is of peanut butter, malt. Taste is of peanut butter, malt, sweet. Palate: Medium body. Overall: A bit flat. Forgettable. I guess a peanut butter beer is not my thing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler. Pours a dark brown with ruby edges and smallish tan head that recedes to nothing. Smell is nice once warmed to room temp. Roasted nuts, peanuts are prevelant, cocoa nibs. The pour also reveals a thin body and the finish confirms. Taste is dominated by the peanut butter but certainly not overwhelming. Chocolate the comes thru and the flavored integrate nicely. The flavor is there but the finish is a bit of a let down. Note this must be drank closer to room temp for the flavor to pop. Still mediocre due to thinness.

Draft at Proof. Black pour with small creamy tan head that fades to a small ring. Well this smells exactly like a Reese's peanut buttercup and I fucking love those shits. Flavor tends to be very similar to the nose, although more restrained. Not bad, I can get down with this I just wish it was bigger and more rich.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
As peanut butter porters go, this one is pretty bland. It's just weak. There are much better versions out there.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Khyber Pass. Opaque pour with a minimal head, just a slight foamy ring. When cold had very little aroma or body. Had more flavor and seemed to thicken a bit as it warmed. Dark chocolate Nutella. Black coffee. Little smokey. Little ashy. Not much red fruit. But quite big on the peanuts. Fills you up. A novelty. Unusual, but not exceptional.
