12oz bottle given to me by one of my distributor sales managers. DuClaw isn't available in NJ, but he got it from their sister distributor in Philly. Poured the bottle into 4 sample cups to share with some of my employees to get their opinion as well.
AP: Naturally, I'm not going to get much of a head pouring 3oz into a sample cup. The colour was dark brown, like rich coffee beans or milk chocolate bars.
AR: Chocolate/cocoa, peanut butter roast, brown bread.
T: Chocolate in a cocoa or dark chocolate kind of way, Earthy hops, a hint of PB but not roasted like it smelled. The roasted malts get very prominent towards the end and on the finish. The aftertaste of dark chocolate and PB grows on you, it really lingers.
M: Medium body, thought it was a bit thin for a Porter, smooth on the palate with a dry finish and a touch of bitter hops.
OV: I think my employees liked it more than I did, but this beer grew on me with each sip. It's tasty, though I wish the body were a bit heavier. So DuClaw, why aren't you in NJ yet?

From what I have sampled, DuClaw seems to be a gimmicky brewery, and this is the king of their gimmicky beers. The insane amount of peanut butter just blatantly jumps the shark. What you can taste about the porter isn't really all that bad, like the pleasant chocolaty malts ... but it's hard to detect anything beyond the obnoxious peanut butter. I do like brewers trying new things and being experimental, and I know several people that love this beer. But for me, this was not enjoyable and I will never be having this one again.
