@WesMantooth Bless You Sir!!!

This OHIO gem was gratefully received from said gentleman in NBS BIF #1
Pours a rich mahogany roast that roils forth a mocha colored froth that bursts with peanut butter aroma. Oh My God! <cried out like a school girl hearing juicy gossip> The smell is amazing.
Flavors inclide a slightly chocolaty malt, a nice gentle roast, some coffee, and a tad of peanut butter that leans toward malt powder.
The mouthfeel is fine, just under chewy. And the finish leaves a melange of the chocolate, peanut butter, malt, and subtle roast.
But...going back to the nose. Thankfully this is a big can. (Of which I want MORE). So I poured some more, a hard pour. Let that bad boy foam up a good 3 fingers. Ahhh, bliss. I could smell this for hours. But, now the experiment: I start sipping pure head, and it's mainly like it smells. Wow! Peanut Butter with malt in the backseat.
I wonder how snorting this would be.

Thanks @WesMantooth!

Poured from a crowler into a snifter. Pours jet black with a thin foamy tan head. Slight lacing but doesn't stick around.

Nose is clean and on point - coffee and peanut butter big with chocolate a bit more subdued. Just as advertised.

Flavor follows with the chocolate more prevalent - coffee big and peanut butter obviously there. What's nice is the coffee brings a nice bitterness so this isn't overly sweet. Its flavor is definitely aided by the substantial carbonation. It is still a relatively sweet porter, but not overly so. The balance is really great here.

The feel here is spot on. Nice big carbonation, full rounded body. Nice drying bitter presence. Light enough on the palate that this doesn't stick around or have any syrupy aspects.

This is a great beer to have with dessert, not just AS dessert like some others I've had similar to this. The coffee is the key component to making this all work so well in my opinion. Would gladly have again.

Served on tap into a shaker glass at the Willoughby Brewing Company.

A- Black with mocha colored head that vanished fairly quick

S- Dark coffee and peanut butter

T- Very strong black bitter coffee taste and peanut butter.

M- Medium body and pretty smooth

O- Overall this was a very interesting beer. Tastes and smells like black coffee and peanut butter. An enjoyable beer that I would recommend to anyone to try, although I am not sure I would get it again. It is a fun beer, but I think it would have been better as a sample in a flight because I did get a little sick of it towards the end of the beer, but it was well-crafted and very unique. Great flavor and interesting, but a novelty beer that you kinda need to be in the mood for.

Awesome beer. It's not Nut Smasher, but at 5.5%, it's a tasty coffee peanut butter porter. Body is lighter-medium, with a nice balance of coffee flavour and peanut butter sweetness. The porter doesn't contribute much, but on the flavour, it's got a nice Reese's peanut butter cup flavour to round things out.

On tap at Willoughby Brewing Co.

Opaque elixir in pint glass, one-finger mocha head, thick lacing.

PB, toffee, sweet malt, hint of coffee.

The malt and coffee are nicely balanced by the PB, with a smooth, lingering bitterness at the end. The PB is more assertive as the brew warms.

Medium body, not a thick porter, well carbonated.

Probably their best beer. I brought a growler of this down to Tampa for a Thursday Pre-Huna tasting and the PB Porter received very high marks.

Enjoyed at the brewery.

L - nice and dark, some slight head, apt for style
S - coffee and nuttiness and cocoa in that order for me on this one
T - really interesting blend of the flavor a you'd expect, but almost like a deconstructed meal there was some subtlety--peanut butter always sounds odd to me, but nuttiness doesn't. And that blended with the cocoa and coffee were smooth. All flavor a easily distinguishable. Not boozy. Also not overly sweet, which seemed a danger
F - smooth and rich
O - this is a winner! Not exactly a good choice for a session but as a novelty every once in a while, it'd be pretty darn fun. As the old ad went: Chocolate ... and peanut butter!
