Odd duck. Good, but in an odd way. I do kind of, sort of pick up the peanut butter, but it’s not super obvious. Tasty beer though overall.

12oz bottle. Barely translucent black, thin off-white head. When I opened the bottle, it was like I’d just opened a jar of Skippy - got hit in the face with peanut butter aroma. The flavor is a bit more balanced with hints of chocolate and roasty malts. Tasty.

Another one from Nimbleprop I’ve had for a while. Bottled 11/18/16.
Coffee/peanut butter aroma. Porters are not my thing. I recall Sweet Baby Jesus to be like drinking a peanut butter cup. This one is not as sweet and less peanut butter flavor than SBJ. Smooth and drinkable for a 9%

Big chocolate smells. Pours a dark black with a thick brown head. Big chocolate bar tastes, nut, malt and roasted malt all of which are surprisingly well balanced by a hop sour masking the alcohol. Great lacing and a short finish. Mild carbonation. A dessert beer.

Bottle on 2/3/2017. Don’t knoe age of bottle. Pours a murky brown black, light head. Aroma of chocolate,ate and peanut butter. Chocolate, peanut butter, light bitterness, faint fruit. Medium body, lingering sweet finish. A lot going on but interesting.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2015 BJCP Category: 30A Spice/Herb/Vegetable (base style: 20A American Porter)
AROMA: Delivers as advertised with a sweet peanut butter and chocolate aroma. Both seem faux. There also seems to be a slight minty scent. No obtuse booziness. No distinct malts or hops. 10/12
APPEARANCE: Extremely dark brown to black. Large brown frothy head retains and laces extremely well. 3/3
FLAVOR: Surprisingly enough, the palette is not that sweet, but actually quite rustic. Peanut butter and hops combine for a slightly earthy/nutty taste. It is not a candy flavor or that of actual peanut butter. Chocolate emerges on the finish with a bitter dark chocolate taste and slightly burnt toast. Alcohol creates for a strange minty sensation in the background. 13/20
MOUTHFEEL: Medium-full body with moderate[ly low] CO2. Texture is smooth with a gentle alcohol warmth that lingers in the throat. Somewhat dry aftertaste, but otherwise clean. Doesn’t seem to be as big as 9% ABV. 3/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: The original is a liquid candy bar, but this is more like a standard imperial porter with some bonus flavors. 7/10
TOTAL SCORE: 36/50

Rating #2365 - 2016.03.06 - Bottle from CBI. Nice deep dark color with a darker foamy tan head. Aroma is roasted peanuts, dark chocolate, burnt espresso. Mouthfeel is creamy, medium alcohol warmth, low carbonation. Taste is complex, lots of toasted malt notes, hints of cocoa, salted peanut, lingering coffee bitterness. Very balanced and super delicious. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2017 Bottle. Moderate to heavy toasted cereal for the malt, light resin for the hops, light to moderate dough for the yeast, with peanut butter, coffee, milk chocolate and hints of baking spices in the background. Head is small, frothy, tan, with fair lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately sweet and bitter. Palate is medium to full, a bit syrupy, with a lively carbonation and a moderately alcoholic finish and a sticky feeling on the lips. A nice Imperial Porter with nice spice overtones.
