12 ounce can with drink by date of 11/30/18 stamped on bottom. Poured into tulip.
Pours dark brown like a cup of black coffee. Light tan head of mixed sized bubbles of about half an inch. Recedes to leave a small ring around the interior rim. Magnificent nose of rich brownie batter, creamy peanut butter, espresso, vanilla. Slightly bitter coffee, decadent and rich Belgian chocolate, hazelnut, peanut butter, vanilla. Finishes with a faint roast. Just a bit thinner body than I prefer. Carbonation is light. As far as porters with coffee added, I’d say this is one of the better beers I’ve had. Quite enjoyable

Very surprising flavors that are perfectly balanced. Pours a nice dark brown color with some tan head and spotty lingering lacing. Smells of peanut butter and roast coffee. Tastes similarly, along with dark chocolate, vanilla, malt and a little caramel. Very easy to drink, smooth slightly creamy mouthfeel. Just the right amount of carbonation. It actually becomes more smooth as the beer warms a little. I’m not used to the peanut butter flavor in porters and this one just knocks it out of the park!

Pours a dark chocolate brown, edging ever so close to black with a tan head. The first thing I get on the nose is peanut butter - I now officially love this beer. There’s also some char and stone fruit notes - it just keeps getting better and better.

The peanut butter is forward on the taste, then the coffee cuts in - and melds perfectly with the peanut butter. This is magnificent, IMHO. A Top 5 porter for me.

Big, rich, aroma of peanut butter and chocolate. Dark black pour, with a quickly fading off-white head. Rich chocolate and peanut butter taste, with a hint of coffee. Full mouthfeel, with a lingering roasted finish with a hint of peanut butter. This is another really solid beer from Hoppin' Frog.

Pours black with a finger of khaki foam. Head retention is fair. Aroma is rich peanut butter, coffee, milk chocolate, lactose, and toasted malts. Flavor profile is similar, hitting notes of peanut butter, coffee, milk chocolate and smooth roasted, nutted, and biscuit malts. Nice firm malty base with a delightful topping of borderline dessert flavors. Mouth feel is a touch fizzy which breaks up the smoothness. It has a medium thickness, but drinks like a 6% porter would. Overall, a good porter that comes across simple with a smattering of dessert-like flavors added. Nothing comes off harsh or artificial, just a standard porter injected with added flavors.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 22oz bottle.

Pours black with a brown head.

Nose: Peanut butter, milk chocolate, brown sugar, chocolate nibs, roasted malt and vanilla.
Taste: Creamy peanut butter, milk chocolate, vanilla, maltb and dark bread.
Mouth: Medium to full body. High carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. Sweet and oily ending.

Great beer! I think it has to much carbonation through. The carb makes the beer grow to much in my mouth.

After swirling the beer around some time, releasing carbonation it is much better!
