look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Pours dark dark brown, almost black with a two finger healthy tan head. Smell is amazing, lots of espresso, plenty of peanut butter, nice milk chocolate, there's other subtleties but honestly who cares, those aspects alone are enough to make this one of the best smelling beers I've had. Taste is equally amazing, starts with tons of chocolate and peanut butter, coffee flavors from start to finish, roasty, slightly smoky, nice sweetness that isn't overpowering, so damn smooth. Texture is so enjoyable, loaded with flavor but dangerously drinkable. Overall, it's clear that I love this beer. I feel like I've had some of the best beer around and this is up there with 'em. The thing that sets this apart is the style, honestly to take a porter and make it so unique is so impressive, it's typical to rave about stouts and DIPAs, but a porter, usually the redhead stepchild. Do not ever pass this up, I wish they bottled this so I could get it in Columbus.

Sidenote- we grabbed a growler at the brewery, the food is amazing too, worth a stop if you're in the Cleveland area.

Well this review has been exhausting

Had this on tap at the Happy Dog in Cleveland. Very clean appearance for a porter, very dark color, nice head. The smell didn't have the overly sweet smell I anticipated for a beer with the words "Peanut Butter Cup" in the name. Smell overall was pleasant and mild. The taste is really the most amazing thing I've had in a very long time. It was everything it said it was, but in the most balanced and appealing way. Subtle hints of chocolate, peanut butter and coffee, all contained in a very balanced porter. Excellent beer, I get one every time I'm there now.

A - This magical elixir is dark as night. There is absolutely no light getting through this beer. There were a couple fingers of cocoa head on top.

S - I get rich, roasted coffee with hints of peanut butter.

T - Wow! This beer has tons of flavor. I get a lot of coffee flavor. I really have to search for the peanut butter. It reminds me a lot of Java from Southern Tier.

M - Thick as mud and smooth as silk.

O - I LOVE this beer. It tastes like it belongs in Southern Tiers Blackwater Series. It is rich and delicious. My only complaint would be that the peanut butter is not prevalent enough in the taste. I have been after this beer for four years and am so glad I finally made the two hour trek to try it.
