3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Served in a snifter. Pours an opaque dark brown-near black with practically no head. Some lacing but minimal retention. Aroma is distinctly of peanuts, with milk chocolate and just a hint of alcohol in the background. Overall, the beer smells sweet, but peanuts, not peanut butter, drive the aroma. Taste more or less carries through the aroma, albeit more restrained. Slightly sweet due to roasted chocolate malts, followed by peanut. In sum, a beer that delivers peanut and chocolate in the aroma and taste but fails to deliver the Reese’s peanut butter cup experience. Essentially, one is left with an excellent porter that integrates peanuts--again, not peanut butter--very well and adds to the depth of the beer. Worth a try.

Pours adeep dark brown with a medium head of tan foam. Nice chocolate smell. Fairly thin body with some chocolate flavor. Not really that good. I couldn’t taste any peanut butter. Still better than DuClaws Sweet Baby Jesus.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Opaque deep brown/black. Fizzy, off-white head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of chocolate, peanut butter, plastic, roasted malts. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Chocolate and peanut butter may make a great combination, but not bitter chocolate, bitter roasted malts and peanut butter. Gimmicky.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Location: 12 oz bottle purchased at Verdi Mart New Orleans
Appearance: Medium brown with decent tan bubbles.
Nose: Medium roasted malt, hints of roasted peanut and milk chocolate.
Taste: drier than anticipated. Aspects of chocolate and roasted nuts but also a quite offputting metallic finish.
Body: Medium and silky
Parting thoughts: The metallic note became less noticeable through the bottle, though I could have become accustomed to it.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
It pours black with a small tan head. It has the aroma of peanuts & chocolate. It has nice roasted peanut taste and a wonderful chocolate flavor. These two flavors blend very well with the porter flavors. I really enjoyed this beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown with a minimal brown head. The peanut butter hits your nose first. Reminds me of peanut butter made from fresh roasted peanuts. Notes of caramel and chocolate. Slight earthiness. Flavor matches aroma. Sweet. Body is a bit thin for a porter. Finish is very dry. Flavor and aroma are fantastic. Very good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home, thanks to homer321. Pours a dark brown appearance with a dark brown head. Aroma has a ton of peanuts along with toffee / caramel, chocolate, and some herbal notes. Dessert forward aroma. Thin body. A bit acidic. Moderately sweet and bitter. Tons of peanut butter and chocolate in the mouth. A little earthy and herbal on the finish. Not overly sweet like expected but I’m also not crazy about the peanut flavor.
