Picked this up last week at Fairway in Woodland Park, having never given this a go before. The beer I had like this from Horny Goat was a bit thin and a minor letdown and that was the case here as well. Not as thick or as roasted as other American Porters, this beer should only be sought after for its flavor profile and not much else. Sure, it went down easily but a beer of this style need more body and strength to it to be considered a great Porter.
The pour to this was as to be expected, as this had a dark brown hue, a moderately fluffy head that faded quickly, and a good amount of lacing that lingered on the back side of my pint glass until the end of my drinking session. Not a strong aroma to this but there was quite a bit of peanut butter along with some milk chocolate. Both of those were found in the taste, along with some cocoa powder and some lactose. While not a Sweet Stout, this felt more like that than a Porter since the body and mouthfeel was light and the carbonation was a bit too overt. The aftertaste kept the nuttiness and chocolate around for a bit before they faded away, leaving an odd sweetness in their wake.
While not terribly strong, there was more than enough booze here which I felt once I polished this off. This wasn't bad but wasn't even closer to being Terrapin's best offering in their current lineup. This felt too artificial and like the Horny Goat, was only worth a go once. It would be wiser to get a Porter that was more filling and roast some s'mores while enjoying it. This will suffice alright for the warmer months but would not be my first choice if I had the heat on right now.

A- looks good pouring into the glass. Didn't get much head on it, but hey, the color looked delicious.
S- really could smell the peanut butter in it, not strong but subtle.
T- I was exited to try it, and it didn't completely thrill me, but did not disappoint. I think it was just interesting and okay.
O-Its pretty good. If you can get your hands on it, I'd definitely give it a go, but I wont buy it again. I love trying new beers, and this was good, but it will never be a go to for me.
