I get why it is so popular (my mom can't get enough of it) but I just couldn't get over the strong peanut butter aftertaste. I think a bit of a stronger chocolate would have balanced it more for me. Color, mouthfeel, and appearance all very good, but smell was very strong peanut butter as well. All in all, still quite good.

Was extremely excited to try this brew to see how the chocolate malt and peanut butter would mesh together in beer. I was not disappointed one bit. Not much to say but give it a try. If you like porters and peanut butter, this is not a bad selection.

Bottoms!

A: Black in color. Forms a moderate sized light tan head. Good retention. Moderate lacing.

S: Aroma is predominantly peanut butter with a touch of roasted malts and a little milk chocolate.

T: Taste is as advertised. Chocolate and peanut butter. Mild sweetness. There is a hint of roasted malts and very little else.

M: On the heavier side of things. Appropriate carbonation. Somewhat astringent, chemically bitterness.

O: Well, I do believe this beer is exactly what it is supposed to be. Not necessarily my thing, but it is what it is.
