Picked this up a few weeks back at the ShopRite Liquors in Wharton. I never had this before and the other offerings that I've had from Horny Goat were less than stellar. This one was the best of the bunch so far and pretty much lived up to it's name. While weak on the chocolate, this was strong enough in body and would make a a great dessert beer on it's own, even if it wasn't as strong and roasted as other Porters that I've had in the past.

The pour to this was as to be expected, with a dark brown hue and a sufficient head that didn't last terribly long. There were a couple of rings of lacing as I made my way through this, but nothing spectacular stuck to the side of my pint glass. The aroma had some peanut butter and soda in it, which were much stronger in the taste. Not a lot of chocolate but what was there seemed like it was of the milk persuasion. Some stickiness to this as there was a hint of molasses underneath everything. The carbonation was good, the mouthfeel was creamy, and this felt like a mass-market peanut butter candy bar in liquid form, from start to finish.

While not strong in the alcohol department, there was enough here that I could feel slight buzz by the time I finished this off. There was too much peanut butter here to let this beer shine on its own and calling it a Porter would be a bit of a stretch but by itself, I found it to be fun and enjoyable. No one could possibly be offended by this and with a good Reese's or Praline dessert, this would be enhanced by quite a bit. God stuff that's not too heavy for the warmer weather that's finally settling in.

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.

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

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.
