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.

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.
