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.

Appearance: Poured into a nonic. Pours a solid black with a beige, two-finger head that dissipates to a creamy, half-finger cap.

Aroma: Lots of milk chocolate and peanut butter. Some mild roastiness.

Taste: Follows nose, though dark bready malts and roast barley are more prevalent. Mild bitterness towards the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, seemingly light given the chocolate and peanut butter. Light carbonation. Very drinkable.

Overall: Delicious. One comment: peanut butter shows up mostly in the aroma, and isn't nearly as present in the taste. Eminently drinkable, as a good porter should be.
