Notes: We always love a good experimental brew here at Terrapin, but the salty-sweet combo of peanuts and chocolate has us all salivating a little more than usual. This brew, while smooth and mellow, still manages to challenge your tastebuds. The porter base is dark and smooth, with enough backbone to support the richer chocolate and peanut butter additions. It’s even dry “peanuted” with brewery-boiled green peanuts! Here’s to the candy-loving kid in all of us!

12ozB, Best by 04/17/16, Enjoyed 12/03/15

A: dark brown with foamy khaki head

S: sweet smell of chocolate, fresh roasted peanuts,

T: roasted malts, hint of bitter chocolate then slight nuttyness,

M: medium, doesn't lay it thick on the tongue

O: The initial aroma is amazing sweet smell of peanuts and chocolate. Like a favorite peanut butter cup. After tasting I get roasted malts, hints of chocolate with a slight bit of nuttyness, back to roasted. Unfortunately the taste dissipates quickly. Its good for the brewery because you want to keep tasting it, but bad as the drinker because you don't get to dwell on the peanut or chocolate flavors for long. Good roasted porter base.

My GF w/celiac review:
"Smells nice. I don't smell peanuts. Smells like your coffee ones. The foam is sparkly though. Like really glittery. Its a very pretty beer."

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a clear, very dark brown body with a few glimmers of ruby when it catches the light. Modestly-sized, light beige head.

Smell: Dark maltiness, hints of sweetish chocolate, caramel and gentle roast mingled with the butter whats made of peanuts. Thin sliver of dark fruitiness.

Taste: Chocolate laced dark malts with the growing peanut butter flavor surrounding it like a German death squad. Hints of black olive, dark fruit. Rise of blonde caramel. Minimal hop character and bitterness. Semi-dry finish, soft in feel, with lingering flavors of peanuts.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Agreeably sleek mouthfeel.

Overall: Better than anticipated! Admittedly, while I don't have any particular beef with p-butter, I've never really reveled in it. As a kid, I ducked PBJ sandwiches and would readily trade away Reese's Peanut Butter Cups come Halloween.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours an opaque yet clear extremely dark brown in color (almost black) with light amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and some moderate amounts of coal brown + amber highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy tan head that reduces to medium to large sized patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of roasted malts, dark malts, cocoa, and a light aroma of peanut butter (more like a chocolate peanut version of Nutella).

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of dark malts with a lighter flavor of roasted malts. That is followed by a slightly sweet chocolate/cocoa peanut butter (similar to Nutella). Light amounts of bitterness in the finish which fades quickly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly slick.

O: Definitely one of the better chocolate/peanut butter porters/stouts that I have tried, I have had a couple of other beers similar in style but this is one of the more successful - a nice combination of flavors without a lot of associated sweetness. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this one.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a unique aroma of cocoa, peanut butter and malts, nice.
Appearance- Damn near black in color and has a small tannish head.
Taste- A taste of malt with a chocolate backdrop. This is surprisingly good.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with a moderate of carbonation. Slightly oily texture.

First had: on tap at Capone's, Norristown, PA

Dark brown-black pour with a small mocha head that receded to a ringlet; minimal lacing. I wasn't aware that this was a peanut butter beer, but one sniff, and it was pretty obvious; otherwise, chocolate malts, and not much else. Dark malts in the taste, pretty sweet and not a lot of roastiness, toasted grains, again, the peanut butter comes through, not so much that it's right in your face. Body was just barely on the fuller side of medium, with a slightly chewy texture, lower carbonation. Quite good overall.

Pours out dark brown, almost black, with a thin frothed off-white head. Smells of Reese's peanut butter cups, peanut butter M&Ms and Butterfinger. Tastes more beer-like than the smell lead me to believe. Nice lightly toasted and roasted malt base highlighted by big nuttiness and complimentary chocolate. I get some tahini as well. Medium body with subdued carbonation. This is a perfect beer for someone who loves chocolate and peanut butter. Delicious.

A great flavored Porter. Color os extremely dark and head is nice and foamy off-white. Aroma is of malt and a cocoa-coffee blend. Taste is amazing with hints of toasted chocolate, penut butter, sweet malt, etc. The balance is great, as is the carbonation. The peanut butter flavor is just enough to add to the flavor without overpowering. Awesome !!

A nice and medium porter, has a faint chocolate and peanut butter taste. It's good, but perhaps the taste is a bit faint and 'small' for me. Although, it is very pleasant to drink. Defiantly worth a grab... However, I wouldn't likely go too far out of my way to find it~

Pours a slightly hazy dark brown with tan head. Chocolate and peanut butter on the nose, dominates it; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some roasted character and more chocolate.

look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12 ounce glass into a snifter.

Beautiful chewy khaki-colored head over an ebony body. 5

Chocolate milk and peanut butter. Sweet and creamy as an aroma can possibly be. Slight hint of earthy hops. 4.25

Initially, I'm thinking this beer's taste would remain true to the nose, and it does, but in a fleeting sort of way. Peanut butter like flavor is apparent and there are still undertones of chocolate as well as additional touches of caramel and vanilla, but everything seems like food where the seasoning was added late, rather than marinating for ages. 3

The body doesn't help this brew at all. It's simply too thin, so the brew simply slips over the tongue rather than sticking about the mouth. The carbonation is right on and it's neither overly sweet nor bitter, but the thinness disappoints. 3

Can't add much. Okay brew that left me wanting a lot more.
