Served in a shaker pint glass.

Giving yet another go to a supposed peanut butter porter. We'll see. It pours a dark black-brown topped by a finger or so of sandstone foam. The nose comprises sweet coffee, light hazelnut, mild cocoa powder, mild roasted malts, and a hint of Nutella. Not getting much peanut butter here... The taste brings in more of the same, the coffee and hazelnut seemingly combining to form a slightly nutty character that may or may not be construed as "peanut butter". The body is a straight medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, a nice porter, though I would call it more of a coffee porter than a peanut butter porter.

Finally had a chance to try a Spiteful beer, and I had this one on draft. Really dark black body with a nice deep brown head. Smell is roasted coffee with some peanut butter sweetness peeking through. That is pretty much the taste as well. I get a little peanut on the front end and some peanut butter on the back end of the finish. The main flavor is roasted coffee though. It's a little boozy and the roast is very rich and powerful. I'd love to see the booze and the roast dialed back slightly. The mouthfeel was on the richer side for a porter, which really played well with the flavors. Pretty impressed and look forward to trying more from these guys.

Poured into a Game of Thrones tulip

Smell: peanut butter! Maybe some light chocolate and roasted coffee going on in there as well

Taste: I like it!!! A lot!!! The peanut butter is there, but not overpowering. I was expecting more, and was hesitant on drinking this. Think this was done much better than Sweet Baby Jesus or the Terrapin Liquid Bliss. I liked both, but SBJ was to dry for me to finish an entire bottle. It's a great bottle to share though. Liquid Bliss was good, but almost over hyped as a Reese's peanut butter cup to the point it disappointed. Pirate Pigeon Porter is really good. Not to dry. Has a semi sweet finish. Some chocolate and coffee notes. The peanut butter flavor is handled very well.

Mouthfeel: almost perfect, but not as creamy or thick as I would have liked.

Overall: I'd buy this again. It's really good. Really nice dessert beer. I really hope this stays in spitefuls rotation. Good beer. Go buy it
