12 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip.
A: Pours a dark burgundy color. The head is a three finger heavy cream shade. It looks to be very well carbonated judging how the bubbles from the body rise upward, as well. Nice streaks of lace are left on the glass.
S: Well, they were talking about chocolate and peanut butter with this one...and golly gee, it smells of chocolate and peanut butter. There’s a definite vibe of roasted nuts here, and maybe just a hint of fruity esters.
T: Personally, I’d start off by saying that the chocolate used here rubs me the wrong way - and just now, I catch "porter with artificial flavors" on the label. Damnit. So does the rest of the flavor profile redeem the experience? Well...sort of. I really enjoy the nutty flavors of this (both from the malt and peanuts) on the finish in particular. Still, this could have been really something if the chemical off-notes were toned down.
M: Thin and dry. It goes down superbly due to the weak body and higher carbonation, but in no way does it feel substantial. At least it scrubs away some of the poorer flavors represented here.
O: There is a really sound porter here...but the chemical qualities really hurt the quality of the brew. It does taste like advertised, and I can see this one appealing to non-beer drinkers. As a gimmick, it’s likable enough where I don’t really regret buying a six pack, but not to the point where I’d buy it again.
This is a great tasting beer. The hints of chocolate and peanut butter sliding over your tongue is wonderful.

Bottle 33cl. Deep black with a medium light brown head. Aroma is sugar, caramel, black chocolate and peanut. Big body, sticky and flat carbonation. Taste is bitter, cafe, peanut and chocolate. Dry bitter lasting end. 07/17 hivemind (915) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 21, 2017
Bottles bought by Alice. Heavy on the PB re: both nose and palate; chocolate not as prominent. Very light bodied and agree with one of the other raters that this flavor profile would have been better suited to a heavier imperial stout or something more high-gravity. Still enjoyable for what it is. If I were more of a PB guy I’d make this a regular thing. beerbellybomber7 (1) - - JUL 10, 2017 does not count
Not bad for a candle, though it could illuminate the room I found the taste bland and waxy. Maybe they should try a high class scented candle for their next brew, perhaps a Yankee. Westy1130 (96) - New York, USA - JUL 9, 2017
Nothing impressive in appearance; pours like a standard porter. Aroma/taste is very pleasant; like a Reese’s cup and Snickers melted in a glass. Very light and fizzy on the palate. This would be delicious if it was a 10-15% abv.

From tap. Pours very dark brown with a thin tan head. Smells like peanut butter. Tastes like peanut butter, chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt and some light coffee notes. Medium bodied with a smooth Nutella finish. Have one for dessert. Nuffield (4171) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 21, 2017
The peanut butter here is massive, but the overall effect is still fairly positive. I enjoyed the richness, the dark malts, and the fact that it was less sweet than a spoonful of peanut butter--which I occasionally will eat. Overall, decent. On tap at airport brewery location, BWI. caribou43 (1029) - Lausanne/Sevilla/Lima, SWITZERLAND - JUN 14, 2017
I bought this bottle at the drink of the world in Geneva and I taste this delicious beverage, on the train from Geneva to Sion. In my point of view, it is a really good beer, original, typical American. The body is a pleasant black color, creamy and brown head. The carbonation is regular for the style. The taste is overpowered by the peanuts butter, sensation of sweetness like a goodness licor coming through your throat, roasted malt, hop, side of vanilla, a bit soapy at the final, good experience!!!! shadey (2135) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 3, 2017
12oz bottle. Matte black pour with a nice dark tan head. Rich malty aroma with a big sweetness and mild roast. Flavors are very smooth and the body is silky. jjgmd (2163) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2017
Bottle, pours a dark black brown pour with an ephemeral java colored head. Nose is sweet malt with heavy chocolate and peanut butter. Taste is very sweet chocolate malt and milder peanut butter. Finishes on the same sweet sugary chocolate peanut butter notes. Not as heavy as I expected, which was pleasing. Quaff Score 8 / 10
