Pours deep black with a thin beige head. Upon pouring a terrific aroma of chocolate peanut butter fills the nose. Amazingly the aroma slowly transfer to the taste as it warms up which is followed by some dark mild toasted malt and caramel. Palate is a full smooth and creamy body. The finish is more of the same but gets slightly richer as it warms up some more some mild bitter notes for balance. Overall a very tasty chocolaty peanut butter flavored brew. Very enjoyable to drink.

I initially passed on buying this beer when I first saw it. I didn't think peanut flavors in a beer would work, even with a porter or stout. Surprisingly, DuClaw pulls it off exceptionally well. The look and feel are what would be expected in a porter, dark, light carbonation, medium body. Somewhat disappointingly, the head is on the small side and there is little lace. The peanuts come out predominantly in the aroma and in the taste middle to finish, where it is secondary to the roasted malt. The roast characteristics are more traditional porter, much lighter than some of the more recent "super" porters, such as Founder's Porter, that drink more stout like. The finish is mildly bittersweet, perhaps a bit too mild, with a bit of peanut earthiness.
