A - Looks quite good deep dark porter slight ruby hues. Head is good a 1/2 inch of mocha head that sticks around to a good thick lace ring.
S - Great roasted peanut butter smells with coffee and cocoa notes. Smells like liquid bliss.
T - Sweeter chocolate and less roast than the terrapin offering. Some roasted coffee but very little twang. Has a good peanut butter taste. Best beer they ever brewed.
M - Medium bodied has a good chewy taste. I can dig it.

Overall while most of their brews are experimental home brew like taste this one was pulled off better than commercial offerings. I would buy this again! (613 characters)

I liked this one. Taste is big peanut butter, roasted malt, sweet and dark chocolate. A nice dessert beer. I prefer DuClaw's Sweet Baby Jesus more, but this is right up there. (178 characters)

Aroma is a freshly broken Reese's PB cup. Taste is about the same, chocolate, slightly sweet peanut butter and roasted malt in the finish. Best in the peanut butter chocolate beer class. (186 characters)

Evil Genius "Purple Monkey Dishwasher"
on tap @ Union Jack's Pub, Manayunk, PA

Notes: Very deep mahogany brown colored body. Short-lived head of creamy tan froth. Lacing leaves a bit to be desired as well. Aroma clearly expresses peanut butter, but there's some sweet milk chocolate and bittersweet dark chocolate as well. No, or very limited, roastiness. Medium bodied and creamy-smooth (which seems quite appropriate) with a moderate carbonation. Peanut butter returns in the flavor but it's not as full as the nose suggests with the chocolatey notes taking a much greater part of the stage. It's not particularly roasty (again, as appropriate) but there is some coffee-like flavor and dark malt acidity, which along with a firm bitterness balances it quite nicely, leaving just a bit of the sweet malt you'd expect in a peanut butter porter. It's gently caramelish and, obviously, nutty. The only hops that are found are mild and dull, appearing in the lingering finish. An interesting and enjoyable beer. It's certainly not the first, but it's one of the better peanut butter porters I've had. (1,099 characters)
