12 oz bottle via trade. Black appearance with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate, peanuts, dark malts, light coffee. Similar flavor, adding light peanut butter with a mild roasted bitterness and light malty sweetness. Average body.

Bottle. Dark and opaque, what little air is embedded in it delivers not much more than a little swirl on top. The aroma is sweet and chocolate-laden, hinting at a rich one. Indeed, this drinks with a full-on cocoa front, followed by a sweet creaminess that must be a product of the peanut butter. Well done.

Aroma: Pretty much what I expected, chocolate malts and peanut butter (the chocolate is stronger)
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a small light brown head, that leaves light spotty lace
Flavor: The flavor is pretty much the same, chocolate, peanut butter, and a mild earthy bitterness
Palate: This one is fairly creamy, not chunky! (Yes, I know, I know, that was a terrible joke, but I just could not resist), this beer has a soft carbonation, and a smooth feeling medium-plus body to it
As a fan of everything peanut butter and chocolate, I was extremely excited for this one, even though part of me was a bit skeptical as to how it would work in a beer. They proved my skepticism was unnecessary, as it really worked in a beer. Novelty? Absolutely? Novelty that works? Absolutely! Nothing else really needs to be said, obviously I’m a sucker for it.
This poured a medium to darker brown color with a beige head. Aroma was of light roast, light and dark chcolate, marshmellows, and lgiht peanuts. Flavor was sweeter and the marshmellows really came through more than the nuts, with lots of chocolate there too. Reminded me more of a mallo cup than a peanutbutter cup. obguthr (6592) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2014 Sweet chocolate, soil, and beets on the nose, I swear. Black, medium tan head with little retention. Mild tobacco flavor. Chocolate and peanut flavor is detectable but wouldn’t be if I hadn’t expected it to be there. Strong bittersweet chocolate and cocoa finish. Alcohol not evident, thin body. More chocolatey than billed, but that is a good thing. blutt59 (6576) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 27, 2016
Bottle, from shrubber85, dark brown suede appearance, some tan foam, nose of cocoa puffs, malty milk balls flavor, some peanut butter cups, good malty finish BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle from Eric and served in a tulip. Opened to celebrate National Peanut Butter Day: Pours a clean deep brown hue with a fizzy fading head and not much lacing. The aroma has notes of peanuts and walnuts along with moderate roast, chocolate and some leathery esters. A hint of herbal hop and cola like syrupy twang. The taste is pretty much that of a standard run of the mill porter, nutty and roasty with a dash of chocolate. Very minimal hop notes and some weird artificial taste on the finish. Even more than the lack of actual Reese Peanut Butter Cup I was so hoping to have is the overwhelming soda like carbonation that just is off-putting. While I like the idea, the execution was terribly flawed leaving me with a standard porter that is over carbonated. Yet another disappointing offering from this brewery.
