I had this limited release fresh and on-tap at Terrapin Brewery almost a year ago. I typically only have 2 pints of anything, but this one was different. I had 5 or 6 or 7. I COULD NOT get enough of it. To this day, all of my experiences with beer are judged against that night of "Liquid Bliss". The following excerpt from their website hits the nail on the head:

"We always love a good experimental brew here at Terrapin, but the salty-sweet combo of peanuts and chocolate has us all salivating a little more than usual. This brew, while smooth and mellow, still manages to challenge your tastebuds. The porter base is dark and smooth, with enough backbone to support the richer chocolate and peanut butter additions. It’s even dry “peanuted” with brewery-boiled green peanuts! Here’s to the candy-loving kid in all of us!"

Smell is just like opening a jar of peanut butter. Pours a dark brown with very little head that is tan in color. Taste starts off with a very strong flavor of dark chocolate and only hints of peanut butter on the finish. However, as the beer warms, the peanut butter taste truly begins to shine. I recommend drinking this beer only slightly cooler than room temperature.

Pours a deep brown-black tone. Ruby around the edges in the sunlight. Beautiful creamy head, picture perfect porter
Smell is upfront Peanut butter/chocolate.Many complaints I've read were the aroma is more of roasted peanuts than PB, but I've let my bottle age a few months.
Peanut butter, chocolate, cookies, Reese Cup, Nutella, coffee...all in one whiff..wow
Flavor is amazing! Reese cup, nutella, cookie again all mixed with a silky mouthfeel. A stout would have been too heavy to allow all flavors to showcase themselves.Terrapin made a good call by making this mixture into a porter.
Mouthfeel is medium, allowing the peanut butter chocolate blend to really shine through, finishing lighter with a lingering finish of Reese's on the palate.
Well executed,well balanced, anyone that can make something like Wake-n-bake can pull this off.
For what they were going for, they did a great job.
Let those bottles sit a minute before opening

A-Pours a deep brown color that almost looks black. Head is toffee colored and thin. Retains well and leaves little lacing.

S-The peanut butter comes through strong and smells like actual peanut butter. Not artificial smelling at all. Faint milk chocolate comes through with a roasty smell as well.

T-Chocolate comes through more here and the peanut butter fades. This is where it actually presents itself as a classic porter-roasty, a little burnt tasting with chocolate and semi-sweet molasses. Peanut butter is on the back burner but still present.

MF-Creamy at first with a semi-dry finish. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

O-Damn tasty. The peanut butter taste is authentic and is complemented well by the chocolate and roasted flavors. Well balanced. Probably my second favorite Terrapin brew behind WnB.
