BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Terrapin Beer Company
Georgia, United States
terrapinbeer.com

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!

Tasted in a Rastal Teku glass from a 12 oz bottle on December 30, 2015. Look is dark brown with a tan head and good lacing. Smell is peanut butter, cocoa and roasted malt aromas. Taste is sweet and salty peanut butter, cocoa nibs and dark roasted malt flavors. Feel is medium in body with a smooth finish.

I was excited to try this one, but I'm not a big fan. Probably my least favorite of Terrapin's side projects (some of which are phenomenal).
Pours out like cola. Brown and translucent at the edges with subtle reddish hints. No real head.
Nose is roasty malts and peanuts. Mostly one-noted. Tast is malt, peat, and earthy peanuts. I don't get creamy peanut butter, rather it's more like peanut shells. Chocolate doesn't come through.
Average mouthfeel. Still worth a try, but I won't be buying more.

Smooth, but needs more flavor.

Served in an Olde Hickory shaped-glass.

A: Poured about as dark a brown as possible without it being totally noir. The head was rather anemic... maybe 1/10 of a head or so.

S: Actually, it smelled like your average, run-of-the-mill porter... minus the roast. Very faint and not very memorable.

T: Okay, I definitely got the peanut now. This is basically a standard porter, but in place of the roast, peanuts are use. Sounds kinda cool on paper, but the flavor left more to be desired. This reminds me of DuClaw's HERO porter, only that one is much better.

M: Here is where the brew really falters: This was painfully thin, approaching novice homebrew territory even. Seriously, this was about as thin as a dark brew gets. No booze detected, very low carbonation, but who cares?

O: When Terrapin is on, they're really on (Anniversary Shmaltz brown ale collaboration), but when they're off, you might as well hang it up. Sigh...

Overall, mouth feel was too thin, did not detect hardly any peanuts in the taste or smell. Would be nice to see a double version of this to boost up the body and try and impart more peanut flavor.

22oz. into a Founders Balloon Tulip.

Pours pitch black with a light khaki head. Very little lacing.

Nose is very light. If I concentrate, I can pick up the smell of peanuts. Not much chocolate in the nose.

Taste is very subtle. The best descriptor I have is earthy. It doesn't taste much like peanuts or chocolate to me. I do get a hint of peanuts in the finish, but it's more of a suggestion than a flavor.

Mouth is a big let down. Very thin and too highly carbonated for the style.

I really wanted this to be an awesome beer. There is a picture of giant peanuts floating down a chocolate river on the label, after all. I was hoping for something bold and distinct, but this beer just comes off as a mediocre, but drinkable, porter.
