Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.10%

Availability: Rotating

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!

First smell I get is cola. Peanut is weak, with a little chocolate.

Taste is also not very flavorful--we've been spoiled with some top notch PB stouts so you really have to bring it in this arena these days. Again it's like a cola with light peanut flavor, and a little raisin.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle,into a Cigar City snifter.

Creamy khaki colored head,about one finger width.Dark brown to black in color,with light carbonation.Little to no light coming through the glass,depending on the lighting.

The nose is rich peanut butter,and sweet chocolate,with some roasted malts.

The palate follows the nose with peanut butter,chocolate,and and earthy malt backbone.

The body is medium/heavy,with moderate carbonation on the tongue.The finish is on the border of wet and dry,with a bit of a chalky,smokey finish.

This is a very enjoyable brew.I am going to miss this,and other Terrapin beers when I move to Massachusetts.

Another Terrapin offering and quite possibly the best one I have partaken so far.

As expected, it pours out a dark, very dark brown colored brew with slight head and no lacing. The scent from this beer screams dessert - there's the chocolate, the peanut butter, the porter, and the malts, all blended almost perfectly. Though quite carbonated, it had a thick texture that was still noticeable. The big plus for me was the flavor of the beer also screamed - dessert beer - as I could distinctly note the flavors of chocolate, peanut butter, and porter - blending all well across the tongue. I was very happy to pick this brew up and when looking for specialty porters in the future will keep this Terrapin selection in mind.

Appearance - Pours near black with cola brown edging where light can penetrate. Khaki, half-finger width head. Fair retention, resulting in a thin, broken layer of suds across the top. Not much for lacing aside from a few spots that mostly slide back down the glass and back into the brew.

Smell - Smells very much in line with a peanut butter cup. Milk chocolate and peanut butter up the wahzoo. A hint of roasted malt.

Taste - Follows the nose to an extent; not quite as flavorful as the pungent nose would lead one to believe, but still a decent amount. Plenty of milk chocolate upfront with a slightly roasted chocolate malt edge. Peanut butter is there, but takes a solid second throughout the drinking experience. Finishes sweet, but a bit of nutty earthiness keeps it from getting cloying.

Mouthfeel - Light-to-medium in body with moderate carbonation. Easy drinker though maybe a tad thin, especially in the finish, for the style.

Overall - A pretty decent PB/Chocolate porter from Terrapin. I prefer DuClaw's Sweet Baby Jesus, but this one's not far off.

Uniquely delicious. More of a desert beer. Not one you can drink more than one or two at a time.
