I really like this beer, has my favorite things all my favorites rolled into one.
Great longstanding local pub/restaurant main reason I go is to get this beer. Anytime I happen to see a growler station with this I can't help to take advantage of it.
Nice dark color, really get the smell of the peanut butter. Coffee helps to make it not too sweet. Good smooth finish, quality porter here

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.

32oz growler filled at Save-On Craft Beer in Mentor, Ohio

Growler poured into a tulip. Pours almost black with brown hues; small tan head that fades leaving solid retention and little lacing. The aromas are awesome. The coffee shines along with peanut butter notes blending perfectly. Some chocolate and hazelnut in the mix along with some malts. The flavors follow the nose perfectly. Lots of roasted black coffee along with lots of chocolate. The peanut butter is definitely present. There's a subtle sweetness, but it's a little more on the bitter side. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is light and thin with very active carbonation. Very smooth and easy to drink.

This has always been a popular local beer, and for good reason. If you like coffee, chocolate and peanut butter, then you can't miss with this one. Highly recommended.
