May 22, 2015

12 oz bottle, snifter

A – Very dark brown to nearly black, pours medium. A half inch of tan foam with mostly low retention.

S – My goodness. Just an absolute blast of sweet chocolate and crunchy, nutty peanut butter, similar to a peanut butter cookie. What I’m clearly thinking of is Tagalong Girl Scout cookies. There’s no hop aroma or other malt aromas, as the chocolate and peanut butter aromas are so strong.

T – More complexity here. Still milk chocolate and peanut butter cookie, with some light caramel notes and some earthy or woody hop notes low in the background. Some light hop bitterness follows and increases in the finish.

M – Medium body with moderate-light carbonation. Some light silkiness from peanut butter. Sweet but not sugary, with mild hop bitterness.

O – This is actually a pretty well made beer, considering the novelty. Like a milkshake in a bottle, I wish there was a bit more to it. Still, it’s exactly what it wants to be.

Aroma is hugely peanut buttery, with a mild fruity character, vanilla, and sweet, cheap cocoa playing in.

Flavor reveals big peanut butter flavor throughout, obviously artificial, and more reminiscent of a liqueur. The finish is moderately bitter roast. Cocoa weaves throughout, and there's a light fruity character that detracts somewhat.

Probably the most artificial pb porter I've had, but at least it fits the bill.

Pours a dark brown with a one finger tan head that disappates quickly. Aroma is peanut butter and roasted chocolate malt. Taste is peanut butter and chocolate, but very artificial tasting. Mouthfeel is fine. Overall, not good, but not terrible. Wish it was more natural as I had high hopes for it.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a big creamy brown head that retains well and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is strong roast chocolate and peanut butter.

The flavor is roast chocolate and big peanut butter and a bit of an acidic finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, very interesting lots of roasted chocolate and peanut butter.

On tap at American Beer Classic. The aroma is that of a peanut butter cup candy. It's a dark, malty brown beer with a brown head that's light, but dense with an ok retention, and a light lace. The beer is a medium high sweet with a medium bitter support. It's creamy with a light fizz carbonation and a medium full body that tastes like peanut butter ice cream with chocolate syrup in a wafel cone. The finish has a mocha like character to it that carries into the mild mocha and peanut butter cup aftertaste.

G.O.A.T. Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter has a medium, beige head, a black (brown highlights) appearance, with thin lacing left behind. The aroma is strongly of chocolate, pretzel, peanuts, and black malts. Taste is of all that with acidic coffee, strong background bitterness, brown bread crust, and salt. Mouthfeel is medium, and G.O.A.T. Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter finishes wet and sweet.

I love peanut butter so I was pretty excited to try this brew from Horny Goat Brewing Co. Very nice look and smell. You could definitely taste the chocolate and peanut butter up front; it was slightly bitter on the back end but still a treat!

Thanks to Rado for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa powder, chocolate syrup, milk chocolate, and peanut butter aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa powder, milk chocolate, and peanut butter flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with fantastic chocolate and peanut butter aromas, but the flavors aren't quite as good to me.

L - Pours dark like a porter, maybe darker. Tan one finger head that dissipates quickly.

S - So rich & decadent on the nose. An outpouring of chocolate & peanut butter that errs on the latter than the former.

T - The taste is a bit less decadent & more chocolate with roasted peanut butter.

F - Medium bodied & medium carbonation. Silky on the tongue.

O - They pretty much nailed it. Chocolate peanut butter through & through.

Surprisingly pretty good. Love the aroma of fresh peanuts. Sweet, buttery, mellow, roasted. Compliments the dark flavors well. Mild chocolate character. Moderate to medium body with a buttery texture. A tad over carbonated.

The peanut butter is more subtle and enjoyable in the taste than on the nose. Aroma is quite strong peanut butter cup, and spot on, just too overt. Flavor is interesting and easy to drink. A good brew.

Crack it. Pour it. Smells of a roast peanut butter cup. Can't see through it when held to light in a pint glass. Smooth mouth feel. Lasting roasted peanut flavor. I don't know if they set out to make a peanut butter beer and hit it dead on or if they made it, tasted it and named it. Eigher way it is exactly what they named it. Good job to the brewers at horny goat.

Nice blend of the Peanut Butter and Chocolate, neither one overpowering the other, would have liked a bit more ABV, but hey! Good Beer!

Over the top peanut butter smell and taste, the most intense peanut butter beer I have ever had. May be good for people who like that or are looking for that, but I would have preferred a little more balance, let me taste some roast and chocolate of the porter. Still not horrible, but don't think I will be revisiting this one.

Immediately after cracking the bottle open the aromas of chocolatey peanut butter smash against your nasal cavity!

Amazing smell - comes off lighter and not as "smooth" as most porters, but finishes roasty and coffee like. Intense peanutbutter smell, strong chocolate taste. Mmmmm.

Sooooooo over carbonated for a porter its ridiculous. Aroma is amazing, taste is pretty spot on but almost too rich and sweet even for me, someone who loves when flavors come out in the forefront. My own rating tells me that normally i'd buy this again but i would not.

Standard sized bottle, brought back from the States.
It poured dark brown, with an inch of tan foam.
The smell is peanut butter, and some sweet chocolate. I was skeptical, but is really does smell nice.
The taste has more chocolate roasted malts. A bit nutty, and more on the sweet side. Peanut butter is not nearly pronounced in the flavor as the aroma.
The body is medium, moderate carbonation, dry finish.
Better than expected, was assuming it would be overly sweet or artificial, but this one actually worked nicely.

This beer is amazing. Aroma is pure peanut butter madness. Sure it's slightly artificial but so is peanut butter. This beer is one of my favorites and on par with the best specialty beer I have ever found. I bought all I can get my hands on. Awesome beer. Don't be a beer snob.
