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!

Nice, dark look. Smells great. Tastes exactly like the new. A nice beer as part of a flight or at the end of the day.

Very sweet dessert beer. Better in small doses. Porter up front then thick peanut butter for days

Sister picked this up for me when she was in Florida ... sounded good, despite the "artificial flavors added" on the logo. I don't think artificial flavors should ever be in craft beer, but that's me.

This beer's highlight is its smell. Loaded with peanuts and definitely has a peanut buttery vibe to it. The underlying chocolate notes only improves it.

The taste is where this falls a little flat for me. Soon as it hits the tongue, it's pretty much flavorless. Halfway through and into the finish the peanuts hit. There's actually (surprisingly) pretty much zero roast flavor until the aftertaste where there's a little bit to go with the peanuts. What irks me is that about midway through and going into the finish there's just a slight off-putting kind of bitterness that I can't quite get past... that with the general lack of roasty qualities leaves me disappointed. The feel is pretty much right on for the style, though.

Not one I'd buy again, and not just because this is brewed with "natural" AND artificial flavors, but because it needs more porter characteristics for one, and two, something about it just tastes slightly off (the bitterness).

Surely worth a try, but I'm sorry I got so excited for this beer after reading "chocolate peanut butter porter."

Dark and delicious. I instantly loved this one. The taste is not too overwhelming and the peanut butter is even more subtle but definitely present. Not 100% smooth but it does little to nothing to take away from the overall experience.
