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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle received as a gift from a non-RB member. I think what turned me off right away was the statement on the label that said "Malt beverage brewed with natural and artificial flavors." I dislike the addition of "artificial" flavors so it taints my review from the get-go I hate to say. Now I will say that is was a beautiful looking beer with its dark brown pour and modest head. The mouthfeel of this beer is also very good so I give it high marks. But it smells like a Resee’s Cup (how much of that is artificial?) and tastes like one too with a malty character thrown in for good measure. Had I not seen the term "artificial flavors" I might have given it a much higher rating.

Color is similar almost to coca cola. Peanut Butter stands out the most in the taste and the aroma, but the chocolate compliments its nicely. I always love me a good PB and Chocolate beer.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Smells of chocolate and peanut butter with a hint of coconut. Beer is dark garnet to black in color with a milk chocolate head and great retention. Taste is a little sweeter than regular liquid bliss due to the coconut.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle, thanks to Suttree. Pours clear dark brown with ruby highlights and fleeting khaki head. Aroma: milk chocolate and roasted nuts. Taste: chocolate peanut butter biscuit/cookie. There’s a metallic element early that drops off as it warms a little. Sweet, roasty, nutty, with a lightly bitter finish and a lasting nutty taste. Palate: medium body with a texture that comes across as a little thin compared to the immensity of flavor. Overall: Fun beer. My wife loved it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours black, with a pretty big, bubbly, brown head. The nose is chocolate and peanut butter, with some toffee, cinnamon, and just a touch of cherry. Sweet, syrupy and malty, with just a touch of roasted bitterness. Medium body, creamy, and silky. Overall, this is a nice porter, with a pretty forward peanut butter flavoring.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nearly opaque, very dark brown with a short-quickly dissipating tan head. Reese’s Cup nose, with a little more emphasis on the peanut butter. Thin mouthfeel for the style. Chocolate on the pull into the mouth, but peanut butter quickly dominates.

12 oz bottle. Pours a cola black with a small tan head. Aroma of sweet malt, chocolate and peanut butter. Taste of sweet malt, chocolate and peanut butter. A bit watery, but not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smell peanuts smoke burnt roast. Minimal head pretty black. Taste roasted malt chocolate nutty dry finish. Not much peanut butter flavor as in Reese’s imagine that would be hard to do. Enjoyable. Had high expectations that were almost met. Hazelnut in finish reminded me a bit of the old Sam Adams hazelnut long shot. That’s a good thing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle. Color is dark brown to almost black with an unmistakable aroma of peanuts and chocolate. Taste follows the aroma. Light bodied which makes this very easy to drink.
