On tap at Slater's 50/50 in Pasadena, CA. Poured into a snifter 12/9/2014.

A- Medium cola brown body, half finger white head that drops quickly into a thin collar. No lacing.

S- Faint nutty aroma, mild roastiness, small bits of milk chocolate. Very underwhelming as far as the intensity of the nuttiness.

F- Not much substance to the flavour, milk chocolate and some peanut butter. Not a whole lot else; lacks depth. Still, this isn't a bad beer by any means- it showcases a small bit of roast combined with dark fruit.

M- Thinner bodied, just enough bubbles to keep it drinkable. No off flavours, finish is more of a mild roastiness.

O- Disappointingly thin, not a lot of peanut butter cup as advertised. It was not worth the cost of the pour. I would steer clear of this unless this happens to fall into your lap.

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.
