Wow. I’m not gonna be nit picky like the rest, this beer is flat out amazing. It’s a hard idea to make into an actually tasty reality, and terrapin nailed it. Chocolate porter notes with slight subtle peanuts on the nose. Straight reeces peanut butter cups taste-wise, without being to rich or sweet. I agree it could maybe be creamier but overall they did a fantastic job with this beer. Called one of my local stores to hold back what I could.

Pours a deep brown with a khaki head. Aromas of chocolate peanut butter. Taste the same. The peanut butter is very nice. Not overpowering. A little smoky from the porter. Pretty good. oobawa (1409) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 8, 2017
Not sure why this beer doesn’t exactly work, but I’m guessing it’s the porter base, which seems a bit thin to be handling all these adjuncts. Peanut flavor is mostly restrained, not perking up until the back end and even then not exactly screaming Jif. (Didn’t know this was a peanut butter beer when I ordered it, so the fact I had to look up why it tasted so strange shows how unimposing the goobers are.) Chocolate adds a needed depth, yet the porter itself has very little character, offering up slight mocha notes and a weak feel. Neat recipe, not that great execution.

Draught at Dunedin HOB on Sunday January 29, 2017.john44 (3101) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2017
Chocolate, cacao, milk taste. Chocolate aftertaste. Fizzy mouthfeel, low bitterness. Chocolate milk scent. Clear deep red color, tan head.
Bottle. Very Dark Brown in colour. Slight head. Very Malty: lots of dark chocolate, roasty nuts, some roasty malts, toffee, hints of coffee. No discernible fruit or hop taste. Sweet chocolatey nutty malty throughout. Quite dry. Bit salty in the finish. Rather artificial in taste. Didn’t like it. Not for me. Disappointing! (2014-12-09)

From a bottle. The peanut aroma and flavour is deliciously balanced, this is a perfect night cap beer. Bosco (323) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2016
12oz bottle,poured deep dark with brownish head. Peanuts and chocolate with medicinal aftertaste. Not a fan of artificial flavors. Grumbo (2948) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2016
Bottle from Total Wine, Tampa. Pours black with an off white head. Aroma of peanut butter, chocolate and vanilla, though not particularly appealing. Taste was too bitter. Medium+ body and slick texture, soft carbonation. I like chocolate, peanut butter, and porter. But for me the combo just didn’t work.
