I have to say I really dislike the nose on this beer. It smells like dehydrated peanut dust with a roasted tone that just makes it kind of, eh. Flavor, unfortunately, tastes like globs of peanut butter that is too highly processed with some chalky cocoa on there as well.
This doesn't work for me. Not smooth. Not pleasant to drink. Tastes completely artificial. I think it's going to end up being a drain pour. I think I just don't care for anything from this brewery. At least nothing that I can recall.

Ba Review #265
Served On: 4/05/2013
Glassware: Duvel Glass
Labeled ABV: 6.5%
Date/ Code: -
This was from a 6 pack I found at Evergreen Liquors in Frederick ($8.99).
Look: Projected a very dark color with no real transparency. The head was a thin film that quickly reduced to nothing. Lacing was random and probably accidental.
Smell: Pungent smell of artificial peanut flavoring and not too much else.
Taste: Again, the peanut flavoring completely dominated upfront until an unexpected bitterness slammed the palate. Then nothing.
This was a very 1-dimesnional beer that just screamed artificial. I can’t imagine much thought really went into this one. –Disappointed...

- Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter.
A: Rich hersey chocolate pour produces a saddle brown tinted head of one inch magnitude. Average retention rate yields a slight circular pattern of lace on the vessel.
S: Strong aroma of peanut butter freshly opened, toasted peanuts with some dark, rich chocolate with some dry cocoa on the trial. The peanut butter is really dominant here and stands out, really odd, but nice if you enjoy peanut butter, smells very natural, even if the label states artifical.
T: The flavor takes a nose dive and the artifical flavoring becomes apparent. Stale chocolate, cocoa while the peanut butter aspect is dry, faint and not as fresh, more so stale. There is some tinny and metallic nature to the drink as well, some creamer and donought batter as odd as that may seem. Weak, watery coffee, tart plums with some hazelnut contributes with a watery peanut-coffee flavor odd fade.
M: creamy, dry, lightly bitter of medium bodied with a reserved carbonation factor.Stale chocolate and lack of depth body wise per style hurts this.
O: Overall while the idea is intriguing, the aroma not bad, the execution here flavor wise fails miserablely and didn't translate for me. Seemed a bit stale, thin, with some tinny off flavors and the peanut butter though enticing on the nose, was stale and hardly recoginizable in the flavor. Really not an enjoyable drink and one that i struggled to finish. You can probably get a sample of this at a growler station, even a single purchase will make you doubt judgement later. Im pretty close in scoring to the ba average for a great deal of time, but this one i just cant agree with. A gimmick beer with an interesting concept that was poorly executed and a whole heartly avoid unless you just have to see if the schrodingers cat is really alive in the box.
