Wasn't sure what a peanut butter porter beer would taste like, but tried it draft while in San Diego at local restaurant. Was surprising good, very smooth, sweet (but not too much). Not as much peanut butter taste as the belching beaver peanut butter milk stout, but was a good tasting beer. Would recommend trying it.

Appearance: Pours dark brown with some bright gold/orange-ish highlights. Decent head retention.

Smell: Peanut butter, chocolate, and some roasting notes in the nose.

Taste: Wow. I got all of the peanut butter cup-ness in the first sip. Good. What surprised me the most was the very pleasant vanilla notes mid-taste. Then the beer finished with a really nice porter sharpness on the tongue. A lot of layers to this one.

Mouthfeel: Medium to thin body, straight down the middle. I would have liked a little more mouthfeel.

Drinkability: Very smooth drinking. Balanced and interesting. If you’re intrigued by the name of the beer (I was - I’m a Reese’s mega fan), you owe it to yourself to try this. Recommend!

On Tap during San Diego Beer Week 2012. Notes from 11/2/12

The name alone is enough to make your mouth water.

While traditional in English Porter appearance, this beer really sucks you in with the smell of peanut butter, especially as it warms a little. (I never wanted to wash my growler after)

The taste is very similar to a peanut butter cup. The mouthfeel is a little light, but that somehow amplifies the taste of peanut butter and chocolate. Vanilla also present, but the heart of it resides in a Reeses peanut butter commercial.

Put this in my halloween bucket every year please. I hope Karl Strauss brews this again, and again.
