COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A consistent award winner and truly unique taste experience brought you only by Willoughby Brewing Company. We start by brewing a robust porter and infusing it with locally roasted coffee and a special peanut butter and chocolate flavor. The result is a beer like no other you’ve had before. Some people say they taste more coffee than peanut butter, others say the opposite. Which is it you taste?

Draft at some goofball bar in Athens during Ohio Brew Week. Pours a deep brown color with a tan head. Everyone talks about the peanut butter in this, but I barely noticed any because there was so much coffee in it. Also chocolate, toast, and just a little bit of peanut butter. But only because I was looking for it and it had a slight salty dryness. Nutty finish. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a roasty mouthfeel. Maybe it was this batch, but this is definitely more of a coffee porter than a peanut butter porter. It’s still really good.

Growler shared by Matt...Thanks! Pours a very dark brown with minimal brown head. Small lacing in snifter. Powerful chocolate and peanut butter aroma. Man it smelled awesome. The taste was peanut and peanut butter forward, dark chocolate, some coffee, roasted malts and a hint of vanilla cream. Great thick body and slick on the tongue. Finish is peanuts and peanut butter.

Growler thanks to brigadier. Nose is a burnt reese’s cup, with a noticeable peanut butter and coffee aroma. Very pleasant aroma. Taste is immediately peanur butter, chocolate, and then coffee and roastiness kicks in. All well balanced. Although I think the coffee detracts from the peanut butter and chocolate. Making me wonder if this is a peanut butter chocolate coffee they are using. I feel the roastiness is just a touch too much for the subtle and coy peanut butter flavor. The flavors are well expressed and don’t come across as artificial as other peanut butter beers do. Also, very nice to see this at a low, sessionable 5.5% and not some 10+% impy stout. mouthfeel is a touch thin, but I’ve experienced that with a lot of coffee beers. Maybe adding some lactose would make this mind blowing.

Dark brown, almost black color with small light brown head and nice rings of lacing. Aroma is faint but had nice cocoa notes. Flavor is excellent with strong cocoa malts, roasted coffee, and a little creamy sweetness. Very good overall

Syndicate provided this tonight at a bonafide epic tasting... Too many amazing beers. This was poured from a 64oz growler many times... Short lasting dark tan head... deep dark brown brew that allows a little light through... Nose is light cocoa and a bit more peanut essence... flavor is about as expected with dry cocoa and dry peanut, a bit more sweetness would go a long way to making this an upper echelon want. Very tasty, but needs to be dialed down. Thanks for the opportunity Darrel!!

Tap sample during Ohio Beer Week (also growlers) from notes. One of the solid brews from Ohio. Pours dark brown in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, nice coffee notes, a mix of milk and dark chocolate with creamy peanut butter. Pretty much comes as advertised. This is one I would have over and over if it is available.

Tap, pours a dark black, aroma is coffee and a light pb in there. the taste is really quite like it sounds, its a creamy very smooth peanut butter and finishes with a roasty coffee, a very interesting offering. A fun beer that I will definitely keep my eye for.
