12oz can, served in a snifter glass. No canning date. Pours a darker cola brown body, one finger thick frothy offwhite head, good retention, lots of lacing. Smell is burnt grain, a bit of nuttiness, light roast, dark fruit sweetness. The burnt and smoky portion seems to overwhelm any sort of nuttiness. Flavour follows, with the burnt aroma becoming more obvious on the palate. Not really what I was expecting; I was hoping for something sweeter, more dessert-like and less astringent than this. It's almost like a smoky peat. Mouthfeel is medium lighter bodied, peaty smoke throughout and on the finish, which is overall quite dry. Was not a fan, though it certainly is not a terrible beer- but the astringency was just too much.

The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a slim finger’s worth of tan head. Stringy lacing clings and then slides into the beer at an adequate pace. The smell had some roasted peanut blending with a subtle roasty coffee bean underneath. The taste was dry and roasty with a subtle sweetness from the roasted peanut. There’s a light roasty peanut to coffee aftertaste leading into the finish. The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a nice sessionable feel about it. Carbonation felt right for a porter but with the roasty portion and peanut there’s a certain dryness clinging to my tongue. Overall, seemed like it was more towards the peanut than the peanut butter, maybe again.

I'm not generally a fan of beers like this, but this one works pretty well. The peanuts don't taste artificial and blend well with a nicely roasted porter. Thanks Eric!

Many thanks to SawDog505 for this can.

A - Dark brown pour with thin toffee colored lacing, there's actual clarity to this dark beer also! Carbonation is light.

S - Chocolate roast and peanut butter.

T - Follows the nose with chocolate roast, peanut butter, and ends with a moderate chocolate roast bitterness.

M - Medium body.

O - An easy drinking porter.
