2.3/5 rDev -39%
Pour is dark brown, almost black, with a tight tan head. Nose is heavy peanut butter with a touch of roast and a hint of milk chocolate. Not much malt presence but really a strong peanut butter flavor. Taste is heavy peanut butter like the nose but a stronger roast, a bit acidic and acrid, messier malt and a faint chocolate. Thick up front, body thins out in back, prickly and messier carbonation.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle received as a gift from a non-BA member. Sampled on July 30, 2014.
OK, the label reads "Malt beverage brewed with natural and artificial flavors." Artificial flavors? An automatic turn off for me.
It is an attractive pour I will give it that with its dark brown color and modest little head that fades.
It smells like a malty Reeses Cup.
The body is also quite nice and well into the medium range.
The taste is also like a malty Reese's Cup with a mildly bitter finish. Oh well, 1800+ BA reviews. I can't like them all.

I was excited to try this one, but I'm not a big fan. Probably my least favorite of Terrapin's side projects (some of which are phenomenal).
Pours out like cola. Brown and translucent at the edges with subtle reddish hints. No real head.
Nose is roasty malts and peanuts. Mostly one-noted. Tast is malt, peat, and earthy peanuts. I don't get creamy peanut butter, rather it's more like peanut shells. Chocolate doesn't come through.
Average mouthfeel. Still worth a try, but I won't be buying more.

Served in an Olde Hickory shaped-glass.
A: Poured about as dark a brown as possible without it being totally noir. The head was rather anemic... maybe 1/10 of a head or so.
S: Actually, it smelled like your average, run-of-the-mill porter... minus the roast. Very faint and not very memorable.
T: Okay, I definitely got the peanut now. This is basically a standard porter, but in place of the roast, peanuts are use. Sounds kinda cool on paper, but the flavor left more to be desired. This reminds me of DuClaw's HERO porter, only that one is much better.
M: Here is where the brew really falters: This was painfully thin, approaching novice homebrew territory even. Seriously, this was about as thin as a dark brew gets. No booze detected, very low carbonation, but who cares?
O: When Terrapin is on, they're really on (Anniversary Shmaltz brown ale collaboration), but when they're off, you might as well hang it up. Sigh...
