A good peanut butter beer. Pours a deep black with a tan head. Smells great, of peanut brittle. Taste is more chocolate then peanut butter, but well balanced, with a sweet finish. Had in the bottle. brownaler (646) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2015
Ok. This may be a sweet beer, but I like these. Chocolate and banana taste. hman43 (1541) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - OCT 17, 2015
It pours black with a brown head and plenty of lacing. It has a strong aroma of peanut butter with roasted malts and nuts. It is fairly highly carbonated with peanut butter, roasted malts, some coffee, and hints of floral hops. It does have a creamy texture, but the high carbonation breaks it up some. It does have a bitter coffee kick on the palate. Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - OCT 9, 2015
Bottle: The aroma is huge peanut butter cookies and light-moderate chocolate. It pours a dark brown with some orange highlights. It has a small beige head that fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is sporadic thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light-moderate dark chocolate. There is some faint roasted malt and coffee in the middle that quickly gets dominated by a peanut butter cookie finish. It’s medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation and a slightly oily mouthfeel. Overall, I love peanut and chocolate, so this is great for me. obxdude10 (2324) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2015
I’ve been avoiding tasting this beer because I was afraid of the ingredients. I wasn’t sure that peanut butter and chocolate would meld together. But they did! This was an amazing beer! I could probably only drink one or, at most, two of these in one night. The flavors were so rich and on the sweet side. The beer poured a black color with a small tan head. The head left some good lacing around the inside of the glass. The nose was full of peanut butter, chocolate, toasted malts and some really light hops. This beer tasted like a Reese’s peanut butter cup dipped in alcohol. It had a really delicious and smooth peanut flavor with that rich and creamy chocolate tone. The finish was malty with a touch of alcohol on the tongue with even more creamy peanut butter flavor. This was a very good beer!

Pours dark brown with a light tan head, not much lace. Damn, the aroma on this is fantastic, I wasn’t expecting the peanut butter to stick out as much as it does, smells just like a reeses, the chocolate and peanut butter mingle very nicely. Taste is peanut butter, chocolate, light coffee, finishes with a mild bitterness and leaves behind overall nuttiness, medium body, a tad watery. I think this beer is pretty damn good, and would be even better if it had some heavier body to it. Goblincat (399) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Dark in color, as expected. Lots of coffee aroma. Roasted coffee and chocolate flavors, with a hint of peanut butter finish. A nice offering. arn8897 (389) - Trenton, Ohio, USA - OCT 6, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2015 200th rating! Pours black with a tan head. Aromas of chocolate and peanut butter. Taste the same with some coffee and malt sweetness. Peanut butter is nicely balanced with the chocolate. Not overpowering. Little light on the palate. Not much lacing but overall very nice. lobosaintori (89) - - OCT 2, 2015
Poured black with a bubbly, quickly disappearing head. Aroma is dark chocolate with a touch of coffee. Taste is noticeably of chocolate with a little bit of peanut butter but also reminiscent of dark coffee with heavy creamer. has a slightly bitter finish but is a tad watery. . uvajed (187) - Ravenna, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Sample bottle from distributor’s salesmen. Pours dark, thin off-white head, aroma of nuts, roasted malt, chocolate. Taste is overly malty, sweet, light peanut butter, chocolate, a little coffee. There’s been a buzz about this beer, and I like porters, but I find this to be highly overrated. The peanut just doesn’t work for me, but I understand the popularity base don the wide appeal of peanut butter and the catchy name (which, like other DuClaw bers, has absolutely nothing to do with what’s in the bottle).
