From a bottle, pours a dark brown, almost opaque color with ruby hues and a wispy brown head.

The nose is all peanut butter. It is not as pronounced as other beers that attempt this gimmick style, but its obvious for sure. Beyond the peanut shells, you also get chocolate, roasted oats, and a little dark fruit. The flavor is mostly chocolate, peanut butter, a little vanilla.

This is pretty good. I can't fault them for doing exactly what they intend to do. It's a peanut butter porter for sure.

Near black opaque body with an inch of beige head. Peanuts, roast, chocolate. Subtle vanilla tones. Earthy peanuts. Roast and chocolate, well balanced. Solid.

Served in a shaker pint glass.

Giving yet another go to a supposed peanut butter porter. We'll see. It pours a dark black-brown topped by a finger or so of sandstone foam. The nose comprises sweet coffee, light hazelnut, mild cocoa powder, mild roasted malts, and a hint of Nutella. Not getting much peanut butter here... The taste brings in more of the same, the coffee and hazelnut seemingly combining to form a slightly nutty character that may or may not be construed as "peanut butter". The body is a straight medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, a nice porter, though I would call it more of a coffee porter than a peanut butter porter.

Finally had a chance to try a Spiteful beer, and I had this one on draft. Really dark black body with a nice deep brown head. Smell is roasted coffee with some peanut butter sweetness peeking through. That is pretty much the taste as well. I get a little peanut on the front end and some peanut butter on the back end of the finish. The main flavor is roasted coffee though. It's a little boozy and the roast is very rich and powerful. I'd love to see the booze and the roast dialed back slightly. The mouthfeel was on the richer side for a porter, which really played well with the flavors. Pretty impressed and look forward to trying more from these guys.

Poured into a Game of Thrones tulip

Smell: peanut butter! Maybe some light chocolate and roasted coffee going on in there as well

Taste: I like it!!! A lot!!! The peanut butter is there, but not overpowering. I was expecting more, and was hesitant on drinking this. Think this was done much better than Sweet Baby Jesus or the Terrapin Liquid Bliss. I liked both, but SBJ was to dry for me to finish an entire bottle. It's a great bottle to share though. Liquid Bliss was good, but almost over hyped as a Reese's peanut butter cup to the point it disappointed. Pirate Pigeon Porter is really good. Not to dry. Has a semi sweet finish. Some chocolate and coffee notes. The peanut butter flavor is handled very well.

Mouthfeel: almost perfect, but not as creamy or thick as I would have liked.

Overall: I'd buy this again. It's really good. Really nice dessert beer. I really hope this stays in spitefuls rotation. Good beer. Go buy it

Pours brownish black into a tumbler glass, a compact layer of creamy tan foam rises and leaves plenty of delicate lacing in the glass. Lasting surface coverage as well.

Aroma is unmistakably peanut buttery on first whiff, becoming more roasty and chocolatey over time. Nicely dry and roasty.

Taste is peanut butter and bitter chocolate, reminiscent of Reese cups and peanut butter banana sandwiches. Earthy nutty peanut lingers, and a bitter dry roastiness builds towards the end. Sweetness is present but only around the periphery, striking a nice balance. Creamy smooth body, lightly chewy and full bodied. Very well done, enjoyed this quite a bit.
