look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a near pitch black color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap

S: Roasted malt and peanut butter up front along with light dark chocolate

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the roasted malt and peanut butter and then picks up some caramel and dark chocolate. Finishes with lingering roast and peanut butter

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. On the smoother side

O: A great peanut butter porter with plenty of peanut butter flavor and influence. Very easy to drink. Definitely recommended

Look is black/brown. Smell is coffee and peanut butter. Taste is exactly same as nose. Feel is fairly light. Overall tis is good, but I have had better Peanut butter porters. Would not seek out.

Very dark brown color with a 2F head in a Stone Imperial pint glass.
Quite pronounced peanut butter aroma. Rich.
The MF is also quite rich and smooth.
The peanut butter flavor is a little less pronounced on the taste.

Overall: excellent Porter, especially with the peanut butter flavor.
It’s best to drink the beer colder, as the flavor and MF wanes with warming.

This can was purchased from Trader Joe's last week. The can indicates 6.7% ABV.
We had this about a year or so ago and really enjoyed it (my wife loves it and has been trying to find it). Perhaps my memory is inaccurate, but I don't recall it being as roasty as this can is. Very tasty. Given that the BA data shows 5.8% ABV, I am wondering if this is a reformulation of the recipe.

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Kappy's in Norwell for about twelve dollars. My fourteenth brew from these guys. This is the best peanut butter beer I've had. Initial taste & smell are fantastic, but does fade a bit. Not sure I could have more than 1 @ a time, but really enjoyed this.

16 oz. can.
Canned 09/19/19.
Moderate pour yields a 3/4 inch tan head over a brown body with little lacing. Nose of nutty peanut butter and roasted malts. Taste mirrors nose nicely with peanut butter near the finish and roasted malts and hops at the finish. Nice feel and overall, a tasty offering from the boys of Everett. Cheers!

Pours a blackish brown. Smells like a peanut butter oatmeal cookie. It's like a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie. I'm not a huge fan of how it finishes. I feel like many of the canned Night Shift porters/stouts finish in a similar fashion. It's like if you have tylenol in your mouth for too long. Overall, better than it was made out to be.
