Notes / Commercial Description:
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!

This beer looks good from afar, but it is far from good. The taste is all extract-y, and not what you would expect of a peanut butter beer. It goes down easily enough, but leaves an oily slick in your throat that is unpleasant at best. Do not recommend. There are better peanut butter beers out there.

Label: "malt beverage flavored with natural and artificial ingredients."
Well, at least they didn't use the word "beer" to describe it. When I want chocolate and peanut butter, I'd rather eat a Reese's Cup.

This is my first review, so forgive my lack of descriptions. The smell is ok. I'm not sure yet how to compare smells, but the taste is definitely poor and average to me. Imagine Bud Light in Porter form.

If you're looking for a flavorful chocolate peanut butter Porter, try Horny Goat's Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter.

Pour is dark brown, almost black, with a tight tan head. Nose is heavy peanut butter with a touch of roast and a hint of milk chocolate. Not much malt presence but really a strong peanut butter flavor. Taste is heavy peanut butter like the nose but a stronger roast, a bit acidic and acrid, messier malt and a faint chocolate. Thick up front, body thins out in back, prickly and messier carbonation.

On vacation in FLA. (Publix is a barren wasteland when it comes to beer selection but that is a topic for another day.) This was the only Porter in site, so I thought I would give it a shot. Looks OK, smells OK, But the taste of faux peanut butter and chocolate is overpowering, sorry to say. Will not do that again.

Ok porter, though the peanut butter/chocolate flavoring has an artificial, chemical taste to it.

pours a dark opaque brownish black with a tan head. Smells of roasty malts, chocolate, and slight peanut butter. Taste was roasty and toasty malts, chocolate powder, and no peanut butter to be found. I found this very disappointing. Feel was medium to heavy. Overall I found myself wanting more peanut butter while drinking, and there was none to be found.

The chocolate is the prominent taste feature here. The peanut butter flavor didn't really stand out if really at all. The look of the porter was good.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle received as a gift from a non-BA member. Sampled on July 30, 2014.

OK, the label reads "Malt beverage brewed with natural and artificial flavors." Artificial flavors? An automatic turn off for me.

It is an attractive pour I will give it that with its dark brown color and modest little head that fades.

It smells like a malty Reeses Cup.

The body is also quite nice and well into the medium range.

The taste is also like a malty Reese's Cup with a mildly bitter finish. Oh well, 1800+ BA reviews. I can't like them all.
