On tap at paradise by the slice.
served in a pint glass it has a black color body with a tan small head. The aroma is of chocolate and peanut butter. The taste is the same as the aroma, it is like drinking a liquid peanut butter cup. I also get some roasted malt on the finish. Mouthfeel is smooth and overall a darn tasty porter.

A - Looks quite good deep dark porter slight ruby hues. Head is good a 1/2 inch of mocha head that sticks around to a good thick lace ring.
S - Great roasted peanut butter smells with coffee and cocoa notes. Smells like liquid bliss.
T - Sweeter chocolate and less roast than the terrapin offering. Some roasted coffee but very little twang. Has a good peanut butter taste. Best beer they ever brewed.
M - Medium bodied has a good chewy taste. I can dig it.

Overall while most of their brews are experimental home brew like taste this one was pulled off better than commercial offerings. I would buy this again!

I liked this one. Taste is big peanut butter, roasted malt, sweet and dark chocolate. A nice dessert beer. I prefer DuClaw's Sweet Baby Jesus more, but this is right up there.

Aroma is a freshly broken Reese's PB cup. Taste is about the same, chocolate, slightly sweet peanut butter and roasted malt in the finish. Best in the peanut butter chocolate beer class.

Thin off white head, black in color.
Slightly thin with appropriate carbonation.
Roasted nutty flavor, that finishes with a pleasant bitterness and hints of cacao.
Warm and slightly boozy, this is a delicious dessert beer that hits all the right flavor notes.
