Karl Strauss and San Diego go together like peanut butter and chocolate. Thats why we chose San Diego Beer Week back in 2012 as the perfect place to debut our Peanut Butter Cup Porter. This decadent twist on a robust porter packs rich layers of smooth peanut butter and dark chocolate flavors. The lingering, slightly dry finish is sure to keep you going back for the next sip. Today, it turns out you really can have your dessert and drink it too.

On draft at Breakwater Brewing. An absolute peanut butter bomb of a beer. The aroma has PB to it, the taste and finish both are loaded with chocolate and PB! Great brew!

kramer (6529) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Clear light brown body with a wispy beige head. Nose delivers just what it promises. Lots of peanut butter and chocolate, some light roastiness. Flavor is solid as well, not overdone with the peanut butter or chocolate. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a lingering peanut butter finish. Also pretty good.

Karl Strauss Peanut Butter Cup Porter 5.6% Slightly darker than the maple but with a way way better nose. Great rich peanut aroma. Medium bodied with a raspy mouthfeel. The taste is roasted peanuts, chocolate, graham and balanced. Nice stuff.

Tap at DC Hama. Wow, amazing nose. Exactly what Reeses Peanut Butter cup smells like. Huge, peanut butter and milk chocolate nose with some light vanilla and nutella notes. The body is super thin though, with average carbonation. The taste is still there, but missing the richness that would take this beer to the next level. Sweet, but not cloying. A fun dessert beer, but maybe closer to a brown ale rather than a porter.

A very good peanut butter porter. Pours a deep black with a grey tan head. Smells of peanut butter, brittle, chocolate and vanilla. Taste is creamy, with lots of peanut butter along with vanilla and chocolate and more peanut brittle in the finish. Had on tap at Hopmonk.

Bomber. Great nose just like a Reeses peanut butter cup. Rich chocolate and peanut. Medium brown with a low head. Body and flavor are a bit of a letdown after that nose. Thin body, peanuts and chocolate. Ok, but would be better at 8% or so.
