Black pour, brown tinged fringe. Finger of fine tan head, quickly disperses to naught but a thin ring. Aroma is all natural peanut butter (earthy / bitter, not sweet), some chocolate but really all about the nuttiness. Taste is the same, dominated by the peanut butter with some chocolate. Mild dry bitter finish. medium to heavier body with a fair amount of fine carbonation. Oldschool_Mike (368) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 24, 2015
Bottle into pint glass. Pours a black colour with light brown head. Aroma is peanut butter. Taste is peanut butter and chocolate. I don’t like this. MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 24, 2015
CBAC Day 24! First porter I’ve enjoyed. You can actually smell the peanut butter and chocolates right when you open the bottle. Flavour is exactly as described, tons of smooth salty peanuts and chocolates. Also big notes of roasted malts and coffees. Yum! Reimer96 (1778) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 24, 2015
CBAC day 24! Made it to the day... This beer is exactly as billed... Loads of chocolate, espresso and peanut butter. Has the qualities of a robust porter like the roasted malts and a dry finish and then the addition of peanut butter makes it seem like I’m drinking a dessert... Or maybe breakfast!

Appearance: opaque near-black with only hints of clear brown around the margins, one finger of loose light beige head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: peanut, chocolate, roasty malts. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-full body, moderate carbonation, off-dry slightly astringent
Well, Sweet Baby Jesus! Nice solid finish to the advent calendar, and a particularly fun and apropos name to end on. Smells like it’s going to be overwhelmingly sweet, but in fact it’s pretty well-balanced, with emphatic chocolate and peanut flavour dominating, accompanied by only mild sweetness. (15/20)

Wow! This one really delivers on its promise. Initial opening of the bottle was unpleasant, the aroma right out of the bottle was rather sour and hoppy, but the first sip absolutely convinced me.
The combination of chocolate and nuttiness in this beer reminds me of eating a good brownie and washing it down with good coffee. It’s sweet, without being cloying, and pleasantly astringent and acidic enough to cut the flavor profile well.
You wouldn’t think something calling itself a Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter to be balanced, but this really, really is. Exceptional brew, and the next time I’m looking for a beer to wash down dessert, this will be my go-to.
Yum. Well done, DuClaw! bdleedahl (633) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 17, 2015
2015 beer advent. Peanut aroma dominates any roastiness. Medium-full bodied. The peanut butter is strong, but not too strong, all around well made beer.

Can’t believe I never reviewed this as many times as I’ve had it. Pours a jet black with a 3 finger solid tan head to that dissipates quickly but leaves a nice lacing throughout. The aroma is like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup; straight roasted peanuts and chocolate. The flavor is primarily coffee and chocolate with smoky peanut butter at the end. Mouthfeel has a smooth, medium body, light carbonation, with a nice bitter sweet malty finish. I really like it. Big Gruesome is a little better IMO cmacklin (1376) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 14, 2015
12fl.oz. bottle from 2015 Craft Beer Advent Calendar. (6.2% ABV) Pours an opaque, dark brown with lots of sediment and a small, short lived, tan head that leaves a ring of lacing. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, caramel and peanuts. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, chocolate and peanut butter with a dry, bitter, espresso finish. Medium body with a smooth, creamy, oily texture and soft carbonation. A great dessert beer. Sweet but not cloying. simonblaine (593) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2015
2015 beer qdvent caledar. Pours black, thin head. Aroma of dark chocolate cherries, unfortunately it?s a fake chocolate smell. Taste is chocolate, rum, peanut, roasted grains. Very tasty, flavour changes with every sip
