A great flavored Porter. Color os extremely dark and head is nice and foamy off-white. Aroma is of malt and a cocoa-coffee blend. Taste is amazing with hints of toasted chocolate, penut butter, sweet malt, etc. The balance is great, as is the carbonation. The peanut butter flavor is just enough to add to the flavor without overpowering. Awesome !!

A: Pours an opaque yet clear extremely dark brown in color (almost black) with light amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and some moderate amounts of coal brown + amber highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy tan head that reduces to medium to large sized patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of roasted malts, dark malts, cocoa, and a light aroma of peanut butter (more like a chocolate peanut version of Nutella).

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of dark malts with a lighter flavor of roasted malts. That is followed by a slightly sweet chocolate/cocoa peanut butter (similar to Nutella). Light amounts of bitterness in the finish which fades quickly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly slick.

O: Definitely one of the better chocolate/peanut butter porters/stouts that I have tried, I have had a couple of other beers similar in style but this is one of the more successful - a nice combination of flavors without a lot of associated sweetness. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this one.

12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a clear, very dark brown body with a few glimmers of ruby when it catches the light. Modestly-sized, light beige head.

Smell: Dark maltiness, hints of sweetish chocolate, caramel and gentle roast mingled with the butter whats made of peanuts. Thin sliver of dark fruitiness.

Taste: Chocolate laced dark malts with the growing peanut butter flavor surrounding it like a German death squad. Hints of black olive, dark fruit. Rise of blonde caramel. Minimal hop character and bitterness. Semi-dry finish, soft in feel, with lingering flavors of peanuts.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Agreeably sleek mouthfeel.

Overall: Better than anticipated! Admittedly, while I don't have any particular beef with p-butter, I've never really reveled in it. As a kid, I ducked PBJ sandwiches and would readily trade away Reese's Peanut Butter Cups come Halloween.

Pours dark brown, almost black with nice caramel head and moderate carbonation. Nice peanut butter aroma with a nice roastiness as well. Taste is a real nice mix of cocoa and peanut butter with a nice balance of sweet and bitter flavors which helps balance. Not as thin as many choc pb porters which is something I enjoyed about this one. I still find myself wanting more peanut butter flavor from it, but overall it's pretty solid and worthy of a pickup.

Poured into a regular ol' pint glass. Bottle said to enjoy by early March, 2015. Drank the beer on 29 October 2014.

Look: Pours a deep chocolate brown with a one finger head that settles down to a thin layer of bubbles that remain for the duration. Looks like a porter should. No lacing.

Smell: Picking up a chocolate-type aroma- more like baker's chocolate than a candy bar. Not overpowering, but center stage. Nice.

Taste: Pretty neat; the cocoa-chocolate stands out in a good way. It's the main force, but not overbearing, much like it is in the nose. The rest of the flavors play backup to it, and do so in complementary fashion. Try as I may, I can not find any peanut butter in it. Weird thing is, when I don't look for it, it kinda appears- still can't say I really taste it, but when I'm not focusing on trying to find it, I just know it's there. (Ghost pb for Halloween?)

Feel: Pretty close to what a perfect porter should feel for me. It has some weight to it, but not approaching that of a good stout.

Overall: A very pleasant surprise. Pretty much picked this up because it was fresh and felt like giving something different a try. I had my doubts about the peanut butter-ness of it, but it was creatively done and the chocolate was well done, too. Don't imagine I'd pick up a sixer of it, but I can definitely seeing buying a single or two again.
