12 oz bottle: The name seems to be a dead giveaway of what this is going to be. It pours a fairly inky dark brown color. There was a bit of a beige head that didn’t linger long. The aroma is pure Reeses Peanutbutter Cup. The taste is definitely different. There is a bit of roasted malts. Actually a hint of bitterness in there. The rest is peanutbutter and chocolate. The sweetness is actually fairly subdued. It is unique, I’ll give it that much. It’s really not that bad. I’m not quite sure I want another one of these.

Picked up this up at liquor world in Fayetteville, AR...

Pours an effervescent mahogany with 3+ fingers of tan head. Very good lacing & head retention

S: Huge peanut butter nose, some iron

T: Some peanut butter, a bit of roastyness, ever so faint cocoa notes up front. Faint woody hops, more peanut butter, perhaps a bit of coffee, carob & dryness as this warms. Finishes peanut buttery, a little mocha & some iron

MF: Light/medium bodied, over-carbonated, weakest link in this beer. Gets thicker as it warms

This could've been truly great if the malt bill was stepped up, seems a little thin. Wanted more coffee. Fairly drinkable, I will this again in sixer format if I see it. Not a lot of beers of this flavor in this neck of the woods; really delivers on the peanut butter

If you enjoy the added artificial flavors that are added to this porter, then go ahead. I prefer natural flavors with a bit more subtlety. Four-pack is too expensive for this flavor-added product.

3.59/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: black, ruby edges, dark beige foamy cap, stringy lace.

Aroma: peanut butter, cocoa powder, roast, faint coffee.

Taste: dry cocoa, peanut butter, bitterness, roasted malts.

Mouthfeel: quite dry, medium body, hint of creaminess.

Overall: there's some high points, definitely the aroma, and the flavors are all there, but it just comes off as artificial. It's a bit harsh with the bitterness, detracting from the sweetness a bit. Does the trick though, but it's not stellar. Worth a try.

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: Black coffee body. Mocha colored head. Little lacing or head retention.

Aroma: Peanut butter cups, chocolate, peanut butter toast.

Taste: Really roasted and bitter, but very rich in peanut butter and chocolate. A bitter, roasted finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, dry.

Overall: The best beer from this brewery hands down.

I go 'way back with The Horny Goat, so when he shows up as a single at The Friendly Greek and especially in a limited status, I am quick to bring him home to Chez Woody.

From the bottle: "[Wisconsin] Brewed"; "Limited Edition"; "Carefully Crafted -Famously Fun."

I was kind of surprised by the crown cap, which needed to be prised off, vice a screw-top cap, which is what I usually get with The Goat. The pour created a pseudo-cascade and so I had to watch and wait as it settled into just better than a finger of dense, deep-tan head with good retention. Whomever the previous reviewer was who described the nose as being like "a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup" was spot-on! I might also add a Tastykake Peanut Butter Tandytake, which was my late Pops' favorite. Color was a deep, dense, dark-brown (SRM = 44), allowing ZERO light penetration. Mouthfeel was full and creamy and suddenly, I was put in mind of Mom-Za and her scoops of Chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream from Pennsupreme when it was still extant. It really nailed the tastes in a spot-on way! In fact, that would be my only knock on this one - it was far too sweet for the likes of me. That brings us to its finish, which was slightly smoky, very chocolaty and with a lingering aftertaste of peanut butter. I hate to say it, but this was a one-and-done for me. If only I had my parents' sensibilities toward these flavors ...
