12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours near black with a beige head and a lot of sediment, presumably peanut matter? Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, peanut butter, some light dough and caramel notes, and hints of floral hops. Flavor the same with a nice blend of the porter and chocolate and peanut butter. Average to smoother texture. This chocolate peanut butter porter style is something I am currently digging. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle from ABC Clermont. Pours a nice Porter brown with light tan head. Nose is peanut butter, peanut shells, and light chocolate. Flavor starts with some light chocolate, peanuts, peanut shells, and a drying in the finish. Light in body and interesting peanut butter twist. mar (5408) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Black with a cream head. Nose is peanut butter, chocolate, creamy, lightly bitter. Smooth palate, sweet chocolate, peanut butter, roasted malts, chocolate powder and nutty finish. nearbeer (5365) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 16, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2014 Updated August 2014 after this one did come out as a regular or seasonal or whatever. It is not the same beer that was 6.7%, because it’s now available in low abv (6.3 % and less) markets in TN and is much less tasty, but still pretty good. Original Side Project rating of 4.8: 650 ml. Opaque black with an eight inch of cream. Smooth rich nose of dark chocolate, earthy caramel and a touch of sweetened peanut butter. Taste is a little more earthy than the aroma indicated, but all the same flavors are there, plus some added vanilla, oak and dark fruit notes. Slightly sweet but balanced well by the roast and earthy flavors. Velvety smooth, medium body has a light tingle from a low-medium carbonation level, and is watery enough to keep from ever becoming sticky. This one should enter the regular rotation, or at the very least become a seasonal. rumproasts (5342) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Tap. Deep brown with small head. Chocolate and peanut butter porter. Mildly sweet. Excellent flavor.

Sable beer, tan head. I hate Terrapin labels. Standard 12oz longneck. Liked the aroma - smells more like toasted almonds and hazelnuts to me than peanuts - sweetish, choco, nuts, vanilla. Body is on the lightish side. The draw is smooth, lightly roasty, nutty. The bitterness is all alcohol and roast. Finishes out lightly sweet. There’s an occasional bit of tinniness in the high palate, but that’s a very minor critique. Overall, pretty decent, a nice novelty, but I wouldn’t want to consume more than one in a sitting. Thanks to PorterPounder for the trade. Beersiveknown (5284) - NORTHERN IRELAND - OCT 24, 2014

opaque Dark brown with grey-beige head. Smells of Ben and Jerry’s pb+j core ice cream. Starts of sweet, fairly high carbonation, dry, roasty barley, fairly thin, nutty notes. Caramalt vegetal notes. Good attempt but not quite.
On cask at Rustico - Alexandria. Whoa, loads of peanuts. Some roast and faint chocolate. Dry finish. Tastes like peanut skin. Medium body. Quite odd. travita (4985) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle. The look is dark, cola like, brownish black, with a beige colored head. The smell is nutty, peanuts, a lot of chocolate, dirt dessert, malts, roast, and good. The taste is mostly the same, somewhat incredible to all these flavors i there. Good beer. DialSquare (4978) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2013
On tap at Proof. Dark pour with medium tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee and nuts. Tastes are roasty malts, chalky, chocolate, vanilla. I didn’t realize the peanut butter bit until putting in the rating, but I guess it had a nutty vibe - but nothing overwhelming. Good though.
