From BeerAdvocate Magazine #76 (May 2013):

Keeping the brewer’s intentions in mind, this is one insanely intense beer. Aroma and flavors border on sensory overload, with big notes of nuttiness and rich caramelization. Indeed, this beer might be over-the-top for some. The aroma smacks of flavored syrups with a cloying sweetness. That said, fans of peanut butter and big boozy beers should give this one a try.

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.

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.
