4.79/5  rDev +15.4%

A-black with a small tan head that leaves a small lacing
S-peanut butter with a sight alcohol and chocalate smell
T- peanut butter with a roasted caramel aftertaste with some warming after the roast flavor fades
M- creamy, low carbonation, full bodied
O- my first time with this beer without eating peanut butter cheesecake. This is a great beer without the cheesecake, but it will be with a cheesecake from now on

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.

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 an opaque dark brown with minimal head and lacing.

Aroma is of peanuts, sweet malt, some salty notes, and booze.

Tastes like a Reese's cup. Very nice. I don't much like peanut butter but this is very nice. A touch of booze on the finish. Not too sweet, not too dark. Delightful.

More carbonation than I'd imagined there being. Not too much though. Creamy but not extremely thick. Very nice.

Overall this beer is great. Didn't have high expectation for it but I was pleasantly surprised. Worth the try.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip glass.

A: Very dark brown almost lack with minimal tan head that was one quite quickly. Some light lacing.

S: Lots of nice peanut butter and chocolate. Smells a lot like a Reese Cup.

T: Peanut butter and roasted caramel mixed with chocolates. A bit of alcohol apparent in the back.

M: Nice and creamy. Full bodied like you would expect with a big porter.

O: Enjoyable brew. A nice desert to ay meal.

This beer was delightful... Dark and aromatic, reminiscient of dark chocolate and organic peanut butter, though not overly sweet. Not a lot of head, but a small amount of lacing along the inside of the glass.

High gravity beer at 12%, but not alcohol heavy. Very interesting concept done well. Incredibly balanced and complex throughout the palate.

Appearance is a dark brown/black color with zero head.
Aroma is like no other. Dry roasted peanuts up front with hints of milk chocolate. It smells like a Reese's cup.
Flavor is of dark and milk chocolate dominant with dark fruit and lingering peanut butter flavor at the very end that sticks around til the next sip.
Simple but complex flavors in this.
Mouthfeel is bubbly, doesn't coat your mouth totally which keeps you going back for more.
The 12 abv is extremely well hidden, you cannot pickup any alcohol at all.
I could hurt myself on these!
