BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Terrapin Beer Company
Georgia, United States

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!

From a single into a nonic. Tar black with a thin khaki crown that is gone in a minute, no lacing. Very peanuts and a little chocolate and roast on the nose. The taste just doesn't fit the smell.
Peanut butter, yes, but also some off notes.

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.

Poured at 45°F from a 12oz bottle (enjoy by 06May16) into a nonic pint glass. Consumed on 08Dec15.
LOOK: Pours with a fingers worth of khaki foam that dissipates into a line after 1 minute. Black in color with an orange tint. Rising bubbles are small in size and very subtle in quantity. Lacing is thin and subtle.
SMELL: Strong aromas of peanut butter entangle with mild aromas of sweet chocolate, and hints of spicy hops and bitter roasted malts.
TASTE: Mild peanut butter and roasted malt flavors enter initially and are immediately followed by subtle sweet chocolate flavors. Subtle spicy hop flavors enter lastly as all previous flavors grow slightly stronger.
FEEL: Very light-bodied (feels like I'm drinking water) and subtly carbonated (okay, feels like I'm drinking subtly carbonated water). Goes down smooth. Finishes with a subtle dryness.
NOTE: Whatever artificial flavors were added to this beer as the label says, couldn't be separated from the natural flavors. This was a good beer that could of been great if the bitterness from the roasted malts were toned down. I was expecting a near-cloyingness to this brew, which I personally love.

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."

An interesting beer. Not perfect, but it's still OK.

On a side note, I have to thank the gentleman in front of me in line for the Bourbon County release for sharing this beer with me. I don't know your name, but thank you.

A: Alright. Black but very ruby-colored when held up to a light. Head is small and lacing is pretty non-existent. Just OK.

S: Peanut butter with some raspberry and jelly. Interesting, but not exactly my cup of tea.

T: Follows the nose. Peanuts, jelly, raspberry, grapes, etc. Mixture of peanut butter and sweet sugar.

F: Too light. Very thin.

O: An OK beer.

A fun, peanut butter lover's beer. Drinkable and flavorful with a mellow sweetness. Goes down well with a nice malt backbone.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a black color with light brown hues along the sides of the glass. A light mocha colored head appears and rides off into the sunset allowing a light lacing to grace the sides of the glass.
The smell had a nice sweet to roasty blend of the peanut butter to the milk chocolate. Warm and inviting.
The taste, again was balanced nice between the roast and the sweet transposing this into the aftertaste and finish.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a decent sessionable feel to it. The sweet and the roast come together to give off a slight creamy roastiness to it.
Overall, while the peanut butter and the roasty portions of the beer come together very nicely. Somehow, I always think Springhouse's version is the best one of this. Still, I'd have this again.
