12 oz. can

Pours dark brown-black with a creamy tan foam head. Smells like peanut butter, milk chocolate roasted malts, some peanuts, coffee, caramel, toffee, with a hint of dark fruit and earthy grassy hops. Tastes like dark fruits, earthy grassy hops, some chocolate roasted malts, peanut butter, peanuts, toffee, with lingering caramel and coffee notes. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy with moderate carbonation. Overall a nice peanut butter porter.

An interesting beer. Milder on the peanut butter flavor than I would have thought but it's definitely there.

L: Pours a deep, dark brown. Almost black. 1.5 finger head recedes within 2 minutes to a medium surface haze and ring.Head seems to be visibly less dense than expected but not abnormally so.

S: Not a strong smell at all. Very minimal peanut butter. Not Jiff or Skippy but the natural organic fresh ground peanut butter. Next to no nose though.

T: Decent porter base with malt in the spotlight. That roasted fresh ground peanut butter is more prominent now and well balanced. A bit of sea water aftertaste. Drinkable. After a few sips though the peanut butter fades into the background.

F: A slight bit over-carbonated perhaps for this flavor.

I am glad I picked up one of these. Definitely worth the try. All it did was make me want it to be a peanut butter stout though. I bet a stout would lend itself better to this flavor. Extra credit though to Foolproof for being so adventurous. I will always look forward to trying their creations once or twice.

Got in a BIF from tasterschoice62. 12 ounce can into pint glass, no can dating. Pours nearly opaque dark brown/black color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy tan head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of milk chocolate, cocoa, peanut butter, caramel, toasted dark bread, light coffee, light dark fruits, herbal, floral, and roast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, peanut butter, and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, peanut butter, caramel, toasted dark bread, light coffee, herbal, floral, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, peanut butter, caramel, toasted dark bread, light coffee, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, peanut butter, and light earthy hop flavors; with a great roasted bitter/sweet balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from hop/roasted bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and lightly sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice peanut butter American porter. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, peanut butter, and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Pours a thin deep reddish black with a half finger of fuzzy head that dissipates to a thin wisp of lace. Chocolate malty aroma... similar taste with a really faint trace of peanut butter. Thin mouthfeelVery enjoyable.
