No date spotted on the bottle.

A: Pours a nice dark brown. Big frothy light brown head. Head fades out slowly, with nary a trace of lacing. Decent retention at least.

S: Well, true to the name, there is a whole bunch of peanut butter and chocolate. Kinda smells like a less-sweet peanut butter cup. Very nice, if slightly artificial smelling (it kinda smells like my chocolate pb cup protein powder actually, now that I think of it).

T: More of the same. Peanut butter initially and the chocolate joins in in the middle. Aftertaste is dry peanuts.

M: Somewhat thin but otherwise smooth. Quite dry in the finish.

O: On one hand it's a pretty simple porter. Some peanut butter, some chocolate and that's about it. On the other hand, that's what it's supposed to be, and they pulled it off nicely. Very tasty and unique. Well done!

Poured into a Tulip glass

A - Very very dark brown pretty much black, with a light brown one inch head...fading quickly. No lacing...barley.

S - It literally smells like a cocoa peanut butter cup it smells awesome. Maybe some dark fruit but too much chocolate peanut butter to even really notice it. it smells very similar to Shake's "Chocolate Porter'...which is another fantastic sweet chocolatey porter.

T/M - very nice medium slightly creamy mouth feel, and all you get on the palate is slight bitterness, chocolate and hints of peanut butter. Couldn't have more then like two of these in a sitting though. Drinks very smooth and some bitterness stays with you after swallowing...mildly carbonated and delicious.

Overall, i had to try this and i don't regret it...i wouldn't rush out to get it again but it was definitely a solid pick up. check it out if you haven't!

Had a bottle of this delicious-ness fresh and frosty out of a very, very cold fridge while it wore a nice, tall coozy to keep it ice cold. Tastes like melted chocolate ice cream with a peanut butter dip on the outsides edges of your tongue. Brought me back to my childhood at the Soft Serve Ice Cream stand with my first sip in an instant. AWESOME!!! Thanks DuClaw!!!

Strong rich taste for a porter. Deep roasted taste is very.
It has a hint of peanut butter flavor. To be honest I would still like it with out the hint of peanut butter. But it does not in anyway downgrade the beer.
Looks the part and is very strong in appearance.
Had it once and will continue to look for it whenever I can find it.

Definitely moved up my list of favorite Porters.
