3.81/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

poured into a snifter

A- pours pitch black color with a small foamy light-tan head that reduces quickly, leaving just a ring around the edges of the glass, no lacing

S- lots of salty roasted peanut up front, the most peanut aroma that I've smelled from a peanut butter beer. There's some underlying chocolaty malt but for the most part, straight peanut

T- salty roasted peanut flavor up front that then transitions into sweet chocolaty malt, the finsih gives more roasted peanut with a salty dry finish

M- medium body with moderate carbonation, foamy mouthfeel and a smooth finish

O- the most peanut-forward peanut butter porter that I've had thus farm more so that Sweet Baby Jesus, which I like

Thanks to UcDru for this beer from a massive box of Ohio locals he laid on me.

Pours a thickish looking black with a finger of light tan head that stays for the ride as a thick cap. Leaves bubble wallpapers of lace after a swirl.

Peanuts up front, nicely accompanied by chocolatey roast malt, and a hint of herbal bitter. Wow. Vanilla and coffee appear at times as the beer is consumed.

Not as much peanut in a medium strength taste, but roasty chocolate and light coffee flavors are there for sure, with some bready holding it all together. Sip ends with a rooty herbal bitter drying it out. Vanilla at times pokes in at times is completely absent as the beer comes to room temp.

Light in mouth, not as clean a flavor bill as would be optimal, not a great finish, and bit overcarbed. Definitely the beer's worst feature, though it doesn't destroy the enjoyment much as it could.

Overall a tasty beer with a bit of a rooty herbal thing going on in the linger I didn't care for, and not as "fresh nut taste" as others I have tried. Recommended but not highly.

Here it is, my first of many reviews. I really like this beer from a local brewery that puts out some really good stuff.

A - This porter had a really good deep brown color with a good head.

S - roasty

T - I was expecting the peanut butter to jump out at me. It didn't to my surprise but I still really enjoyed it. It had a nice roasty taste and picked up a bit coffee. Picked up some malty taste as well.

M - Solid bodied and very smooth.

O - I liked the roasty taste to this porter but I was hopping for a little more peanut butter taste. Despite that, it was a very good well balanced porter. I would recommend this.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a perfect pint glass

A - It pours dark brown with ruby highlights. It is topped with an inch of tan head that quickly dissipates.

S - I smell some sweet chocolate and some faint peanut butter.

T - The taste is more chocolate than peanut butter, although the peanut butter clearly comes through. There is also some roasted malt.

M - Medium

O - For some reason I tend to be disappointed in all peanut butter beers except one. This is good, but not as good as I was hoping. I am glad to have tried it.

3.87/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Serving type: On-tap

Was in town on business, figured I'd try something local and this was on tap and sounded interesting.

The appearance had a light brown foam, nice dark chocolate coloration in the pint glass.

The peanut butter smell was perfect, not overpowering but strong enough that you could really get a feel for what this beer was about.

Peanut butter with hints of chocolate swirl through all elements of this beer. The first taste is a standard porter taste but almost immediately after the peanut butter and chocolate hit. The after taste was smooth and peanut butter filled, but not overbearing at all.

Average carbonation with light / medium body, perfect for what this beer is trying to accomplish.

Great beer, a solid peanut butter / chocolate beer offering. Would definitely have again.

Prior I gave it a 3 but with that pb taste I had to increase it to at least 3.75. Liquid peanut butter.

Sent as an extra thanks to crapturds (reddit), and shared with rudzud.

Very very light fizzy head fades almost instantly, pretty much pitch black brown beer with no light.

Nose is bleh, lots of earthy nuts, like peanut shell and dusty earth, woody dust, little caramel and earthy hop. Stale peanut shell sitting on a wooden shelf.

Taste mode peanut butter, little stale peanut shell, nutty caramel, hint of light chocolate water, little thin still, mild bitterness, mild creamy choc peanut butter. Finish is a bit bitter, more mild peanut butter and caramel.

Mouth is thin, watery, lighter carb too.

Overall meh, not so great. Glad I shared it with rudzud as he enjoyed it a lot more than me.

2/27/2015 - 12oz bottle at Todd's Pub

Every once and a while you come across a beer that just rubs you the wrong way. Harsh artificial flavors quickly drop this mess to bottom of an ever increasing list of "peanut butter cup coffee porter" whatevers. I personally found this to be an unbalanced mess. Not recommended. I still have quite a few Listermann's beers to try so hopeful things get better from here.

4.3/5  rDev +12.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Arrives at the bar with a fudge colored liquid; the cap is impressive and drizzles plenty of lacing

Smell: Peanut butter and brown bread

Taste: Brown bread with the peanut butter flavors growing into the mid-palate; hints of chocolate arrive, after the swallow, and join with the peanut butter in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Really enjoyed this beer; love the flavor the peanut butter powder imparts

Thanks to JLindros for sharing.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark brown with hardly any head. Light of white hue that leaves a thin halo.

S - Aromas of stale peanuts . Light chocolate, faint malts.

T - Taste is more peanut butter than shells, light chocolate, roasted malts. Peanuts are nice and strong, not very balanced.

M - Mouthfeel is slightly thin, lightly carbonated.

O - Overall this beer wasn't bad, nice peanut taste.
