Pours a dark brown with a big tan head that doesn't go away. Smells of strong peanut butter. Tastes like a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie. Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Overall I love this beer.

This is hands down one of the best beers I've ever had. It is extremely rich and full-bodied. It has a strong coffee flavor finished off by the subtle sweetness of peanut butter in the after taste. I would highly, highly recommend this beer.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a chalice.

Appearance: Pours midnight black. Moderate amount of bubbles and a solid finger of tan head that settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A roasty and rich dark malt driven aroma with a scent of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and peanut butter. Big scent of coffee beans and peanut butter. Dark roasted malt with a scent of chocolate, toast, biscuit, toffee, caramel, and nuts along with yeast. Sweet scent of vanilla and molasses. A really nice rich aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a rich and roasty dark malt driven taste with notes of chocolate, coffee, peanut butter, and vanilla. Big taste of peanut butter and coffee beans. Dark roasted malt with notes of chocolate, biscuit, toast, caramel, toffee, and nuts with some yeast. Sweet taste of vanilla and molasses. A very good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Slick and silky with a fairly drying finish.

Overall: A great variant on Victory At Sea. Big peanut butter taste that blends well with the coffee, vanilla, and dark roast flavors.

Opens up big, straight up peanut butter with a dark chocolate coffee bitter kick. Mouthfeel is very creamy. For the intense opening, the finish is rather pleasant. Im a big fan of Victory at Sea and this one is an interesting take, though I wish it were less bitter.

Had on Draft. Awesome. Super dark pour. Looks more like a stout than a porter. Classic in your face vanilla you expect from Victory at Sea followed up why roasted peanut. Medium thickness, smooth drinking.
