A dessert beer (or gimmick depending on POV) that I had to try b/c I have a sweet tooth. Looks like a great porter with a black body, one finger tan head, some lace and to bastardize I'll say it has an aroma similar to a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup (or any PB cup, to be honest). From there I felt it went down south after that. Smooth, light to medium body that is slightly chewey and bready but quite frankly the peanut butter and chocolate tastes are muddy. It's more like a watered down (with alcohol) peanut butter cup milkshake. I didn't have trouble finishing my pint but I couldn't bother with this again. Also there's a hoppy bitterness and crispness that I wish was more subdued since this is supposed to be a sweet beer, or at least sweeter than your regular beer (even porter).

A: Dark brown a little ruby color with a tan head that dissipates fairly quickly.

S: Sweet Baby Jesus this smells just like a Reeses peanut butter cup. Heavenly smell. With some roasted malts/coffee smell in there

T: Follows the nose to a degree. A little bit watery coffee dominates more in the taste than the smell. Plenty of chocolate and the peanut butter takes a back seat.

M: Too thin for a porter in my opinion. Does not have a clean finish, but it goes down smooth.

O: Take this beer for what it's worth - a gimmick. It accomplishes what it sets out to do and I recommend at least trying it.
