Notes / Commercial Description:
A full bodied porter that gets its dark luscious color from the generous use of roasted malts. You’ll get just the right amount of chocolate and peanut butter to question whether you’re drinking a glass of delicious suds or popping a peanut butter cup in your mouth.

It pours a dark brown with a large tan head that leaves a good lacing on the glass. The smell is one word peanut butter and nothing else. The taste is full on peanut butter with a faint bit of chocolate to the end. It is a medium body with a rich flavor. Overall a nice drink just a little bit on the odd side with so much peanut but still pleasant.

The beer pours a deep brown with a one-finger tan head that's thick and leaves nice lacing.

The smell is peanut butter from three feet away. Really amazing. There's some roasted malts and a little chocolate in there too.

The taste is tons of peanuts and some light roasted malts. The chocolate is a little more subtle. There's something burnt in there too.

The mouthfeel isn't bad with medium thickness and slightly high carbonation. It's a little thinner than I'd like but decent.

Overall this is a pleasant beer. If it didn't have the strange, burnt flavor I would probably buy it again.

Some of the reviews seem to like this beer. I absolutely didn't. Similarly, the imperial version of this beer didn't fare any better.

It looks and smells pretty good. Black as oil, smells like peanut butter (even if it is more of a powdered PB2-type smell).

Feel could be better. I don't know how to describe it but something feels off as it goes down.

Taste kinda sucks. The fake peanut butter is there. I got some metallic and some burnt flavors. Not a whole lot of chocolate to note.

When I tried the imperial version, it tasted much better when it was very cold (close to freezing). I didn't do that this time. But even so, I don't think I'll be buying this beer again.

Appearance: Dark with ruby highlights, and a huge tan head. Nice attractive lace, too.

Aroma: Salted peanut butter. Very nice and accurate.

Taste: Tinge of bitterness but lots of (artificial) peanut butter and roasty chocolate malts. Not bad, and pretty accurate in flavor profile, though. Can’t fault the taste of this one, nope.

Can from 7-11
Dark brown with ruby highlights and a decent sized tan head that persists. Huge peanut butter cup on the nose with a bit of earth at the edges. Flavor follows through but leaves a bit of sharp bitterness in the finish. Certainly tastes as advertised, tasty and interesting beer.
