Fresh the same day the growler was filled; notes are recent
A solid-looking porter, it's a very dark brown with a solid tan head of creamy froth that displays good retention and lacing via some thick speckling in abundance.
Roast coffee and raw peanut are fresh and most prominent on the nose. I didn't actually realize it was a coffee beer (many people mistakenly leave the coffee out when talking about it, for some reason), but the coffee is like freshly ground dark roast. It brings out some good chocolaty notes, but they lie more underneath.
Seemingly unlike some experiences, I found it to be more developed in the flavor. Peanut comes off as fresh and raw as well as salted, oily and refined with a bit of sweetness added. Coffee is still upfront but doesn't keep the peanut butter cup from showing as it should. Smooth chocolate notes are well developed.
The body is on the more robust end of medium, with a nice sweetness keeping with the beer's theme and profile versus a dryness, of which a little contributes to balance. It's got a nice, smooth creaminess throughout and just enough bite for the style.
