Overall, not a bad beer. Dark brown in color with less foamy head than I would have liked. The smell of chocolate and peanut butter is outstanding. The taste - well it's there, it definitely has a cocoa and peanut butter taste. I got no fruitiness or bready taste. It's a good beer, worth trying.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12-oz bottle poured to tulip. Consumed 10-15-2013. Acquired in trade with reidjoshua.

dark, coffee brown appearance. medium carbonation with 1-finger tan head fading to a minimal collar. very little lacing

there is roasted malt at first, but the peanut flour and milk chocolate appear quickly. there is a faint red grape fruitiness as well.

the taste does not match the pb cup aroma, unfortunately. it is roasted malt bitterness primarily, more astringency than typical for the style. actually more fruit than expected.

moderate carbonation, less creamy than hoped-for

look: 1.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.25

Appearance-dark brown but can see through the beer when held up to the light. No head to speak of.

Smell-the best thing about this beer. Smells like a peanut butter cup.

Taste-artificial/chemical peanut butter taste and not much else. The PB dominates here. An astringent quality is present.

Mouthfeel-thin beer, basically watery. The astringency/acidity can be felt on the tongue.

Overall-a crime to call this a Porter. Roasted malts are weak, if present at all, no head, watery, artificial taste. If you want a "crafted" Porter grab a Samuel Smith Taddy Porter or Founders Porter. This reeks of mass production.

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. Jet black pour with earthy peanut butter rising from the liquid. I was hoping the taste was going to be as good. Overall, it fell a little short for me. A solid porter, but the chocolate felt a little artificial and the peanut butter flavor wasn't there. Worth the try due to the fact I don't find such beers often, but I probably won't buy this again.
