3.71/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

A: Poured a very small, cream colored head that dissipated quickly. Very dark in color but held to light appears red.

S: Strong peanut butter smell with some chocolate notes underneath. The mixture of the two remind me of coffee.

T: An excellent balance of chocolate and peanut butter flavors, but no other dominant flavors.

M: Not as thick and creamy as you might expect a chocolate stout. The carbonation is just right despite the low head.

O: While the combination of chocolate and peanut butter is not universally unique, it is unique for beer. I think the balance in the two flavors is excellent, but this unique beer is not one I will drink often.

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.
