Pours a dark brown color with no head whatsoever from this bottle. The aroma is peanut butter/roasted peanuts. It's not an overbearing aroma, but you definitely know what your smelling. My first taste was right out of the fridge and it was exactly like the aroma. I couldn't taste the alcohol at this temperature. As the beer warms, the alcohol comes out and warms the throat and stomach nicely. Medium body, not a ton of carbonation.

I was expecting this beer to be thicker, sweeter, and boozier, but I was pleasantly surprised. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer and will be drinking again soon.

Pours a dark honey color with some ruby highlights. No head, just some wisp from from the continuous and forceful carbonation. Yep, it smells like peanut butter, or more accurately a Nutter-Butter cookie. There's a salty-sweetness on the nose, too, and some chocolate notes. This is a glorious beer to inhale.

The taste, however, is a bit of a disappointment. Roasted malts, dark rum, cane sugar up front: sweeeet. Then there's a fruity, spicy, sourness that takes over and lingers: pomegranate, sorghum, chocolate, pepper. The peanut butter is, unfortunately, masked and detectable only when smelling the beer. It's a bit over-carbonated, and for 12% not as full as I thought it would be for a porter. Maybe if they could bring the focus of the beer - peanut butter porter - back to the center, then this could be an exceptional beer.

If you like porters and peanuts then this beer is definitely for you. This is an absolutely wonderful beer and one of my personal favorites. Look is very dark like you would expect with a porter only very little head on most pours. Smell is also wonderful; hints of peanut butter and chocolate are very obvious but not overwhelming. Taste is strong but definitely not overbearing, unlike how i expect most 12% abv beers to be. You get the rich porter taste up front with a perfect amount of peanut flavor on the end. For feel, I would say that it has a medium to full body that can be a little heavy, depending on the batch.

Overall this is a wonderful beer. The best of any specialty or peanut butter porter that I have had.

A-Pours a thick, oily brown color. A thin, tan head sits atop the beer. It slowly fades, leaving remnants along the glass.

S-A big, sweet, artificial peanut butter aroma. Sweet, toasted peanuts. Some fudge and sweet chocolate.

T-More like a peanut butter cup than actual peanut butter. They must be using a ton of flavor additives to get it to taste like this. It's super-sweet peanut butter with some dense chocolate.

M-Oily, full bodied. Alcohol is somewhat noticeable but I was surprised the ABV was this high. Nearly cloying.

O-Regardless of the tactics used to get this flavor, they nailed the peanut butter thing here. I actually grew to enjoy this beer as I took my time with it. I'm a peanut butter fiend so I shouldn't be surprised.
