A: Very dark brown, but not quite black. Fairly translucent. Forms a thin dark tan head that leaves no lacing.

S: Lots of toast and peanut butter. Cocoa to a lesser extent and a bit of coffee.

T: Lots of roasted malts and coffee. Roasted peanuts, dry chocolate, cocoa powder, and coffee grounds.

M: Medium bodied and beyond chalky to the point of being grainy.

O: A decent beer, but a little harsh in my opinion. While this one has an interesting complexity, I don't feel as if the flavors really blend all that well together.

Had this beer for the second time last night.

A- Dark brown in color with a less than finger width head, which settled immediately after pouring.

S- The smell is the best part of this brew in my opinion. Several people sitting around us had ordered it and you could smell it. Deep dark roasted coffee aroma with hints of roasted peanuts and sweet toffee. I am a big coffee drinker and really enjoyed the way it smelled.

T- Roasted coffee and peanut. I almost expected a buttery taste like peanut butter but didn't get any of that. Very sweet as well, creamy and toffee like. I kept thinking about how good this beer would have tasted after a big meal.

M- Heavy to the taste, but not over powering. Pretty well balanced.

O- Definitely would have this one again. Almost filled a jug of it but would probably be really full after drinking a few.

Thanks to Veldrid for the trade!

Poured from the growler into a Hair of the Dog tulip, very dark brown with a solid finger of tan head that retained well, rejuvenating with a swirl; minimal lacing. Aroma was coffee-forward, roasty dark malts, virtually nothing in the way of peanut butter, but this characteristic came out a bit more as it warmed. The taste was almost completely dominated by coffee. It was good coffee, smooth and slightly bitter, but where was the peanut butter cup? Dark malts lent a good balance of sweetness and roasty bitterness, mild unsweetened chocolate, and a slight earthiness. As with the aroma, the peanut butter came out a bit more as it warmed, but the coffee pretty much conquered all. For a porter, the mouthfeel was great, smooth, robust, medium-full body. Overall a solid brew, but disappointing. Sure it was good as a coffee porter, but I guess I expected more on the peanut butter cup side, as the name promised, and it just wasn't happening.
