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.

Nice tangy coffee, chocolate and peanut butter porter. Dark with a nice tan head. Good body. Nice toasty coffee, chocolate and peanut butter. Great tasting porter.

Smells like a coffee shop, a little bitter ( but I'm not a black coffee person) but strong peanut butter and chocolate. Overall very good, wishing it came in 12 oz

This is the first and only beer I've ever had with peanut butter. Astringent coffee peanut butter go together in a fantastic way.

This one pours a nice dark black, with a small head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like hazelnut coffee, sweet peanut butter, chocolate fudge, and roasted malt.

This is a really solid beer. The coffee is more dominant than the peanut butter. The peanut butter seems to add a slick and oily creaminess to this beer, and give off the impression of a nutty coffee roast, or even a hazelnut infused creamy coffee thing. There's a lot of chocolate, it's certainly fudgy and reminiscent of dark cacao.

This is medium bodied, pretty creamy and fluffy feeling, with a lower level of carbonation.

Haven't had too much from Hoppin' Frog lately, it's good to see that they can still crank out great dark beers.

Aroma is a mix of coffee and chocolate/rocky road. The flavor is chocolate/rocky road, dark/roasted malts, coffee and a mix of mild/medium sweetness and acidity in the finish.
