22oz bottle served in a big snifter. Don't see a date. I think it was given to me by @mr-jj.

Pours dark brown, with a smallish head and not a lot of carbonation. Smell is coffee and chocolate. I probably should have typed that all caps.

Taste is coffee and chocolate. A little milk shakey -- but not too sweet. Very tasty.

Mouthfeel is moderately thick, moderately sticky. Overall, tasty beer.

22 oz bottle served in a Porter Bar goblet.

Appearance: pours clear but dark, with a reddish brown color topped with a large, creamy tan head that has very good retention and leaves some lacing on the glass.

Aroma: toasted brown bread, coffee, chocolate and peanut butter cookies. Hints of vanilla and light spicing.

Flavor: dark roasted grains, medium roasted earthy coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, roasted peanuts & faint toffee.

Medium-full body with medium-high carbonation.

Overall: a very tasty, if imperfectly balanced and over-carbonated mix of cocoa, peanut butter, coffee and dark roasted grains.

Modest head retention and production.

I had no idea this was a peanut butter coffee porter, but the former is quite strong on the aroma. Chocolate and coffee are present as well, but certainly take a backseat to the peanut butter. Roast and caramel are a distant third.

Cola, dark fruit, and roast immediately; builds to a strong peanut butter middle (reminiscent of a nutter butter); peanut butter slowly fades (but never completely), allowing some more chocolate and roast to carry through the finish. A bit of coffee throughout.

Despite the strong aroma, feel is much more appropriate to the ABV. Medium-light up front, but building to a slightly sticky thickness as the peanut butter presence grows throughout the sip.

A really tasty brew, and a viable alternative to the peanut butter stouts which seem to be rising up quickly.

Standard porter appearance. Roasted malt and coffee aroma. Winning combination of peanut butter, chocolate and coffee in a lighter bodied porter. Creamy mouthfeel. Very good and somewhat unexpected.
