Pours a nearly solid black, with only hints of light coming through around the edges. The head is brown, thick and fluffy. The nose is nutty, sweet and coffee. The taste has notes of chocolate, hints of coffee, but I'm really looking for more peanut butter. There's a touch of it towards the end, and if you let the sip linger on the tongue it comes out a bit more. Overall, it's a good, interesting, novelty, desert beer.

This beer really nails the chocolatey peanut butter notes in both aroma and taste, with coffee providing a nice earth and bittering balance to keep this otherwise lighter porter as an easily quaffable brew that's not quite a cloying dessert beer, but can be if you want it.

I know they were basically the originators of this beer flavor profile in our area, but this is done remarkably better by another brewery in the state.

Poured from 32oz crowler that sat in my fridge way longer than it should have. Despite the age, the pour looked magnificent. Pitch black with a fluffy tan head. The lacing in my snifter stuck like glue. Nose on this one was roasty and sweet with lots of dark roast coffee. Couldn't really taste the peanut butter, but coffee and dark chocolate were all there. This beer os incredibly roasty and blends wonderfully with the coffee. Carbonation was light, as was the body, but the flavor in this one more than made up for it. I would love to try this one a little more fresh but was still incredibly impressed by this beer.

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!
