A: Poured from bottle to snifter, the beer produced a finger of tan head made of mostly fine bubbles with a few larger ones. The head fell fairly quickly (under 30 seconds) and left a dusting on top along with a ring around the edge. The beer is a very dark brown with some ruby highlights in the cheers and very clear when back-lit. Alcohol legs are noticeable when agitated and the foam kicks up a little more also.
S: A mild toasted nuts and peanut aroma on the first whiff. Also getting milk chocolate, almonds, sweet caramel and light fruity esters. Very low hop aroma, just an earthy, spice that sits below the candy bar aroma.
T: Chunky peanut butter taste, true to its name, on the first sip. Balance is on the malt side with it coming of sweet but not overly so. Almonds, peanuts, toasted pecans, milk chocolate, toast and toffee flavors all coming through in various intensities. Peanut is defiantly the dominant, slightly artificial tasting. Very low bitterness and almost no hop flavor coming through. A slightly grainy flavor at the end that leaves the pallet slightly dry.
M: Moderate body with carbonation on the lower side. Low alcohol warming.. surprising for the ABV. Maybe its a mental thing but it feels like a slick, gritty peanut butter spoonful after about 2-3 mins without a sip.
O: Unique beer that lived up to its name. Malts shine and the peanut butter flavor blends well. I don't know that I would get it again, but glad to try it.

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.

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!
