3.81/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

poured into a snifter

A- pours pitch black color with a small foamy light-tan head that reduces quickly, leaving just a ring around the edges of the glass, no lacing

S- lots of salty roasted peanut up front, the most peanut aroma that I've smelled from a peanut butter beer. There's some underlying chocolaty malt but for the most part, straight peanut

T- salty roasted peanut flavor up front that then transitions into sweet chocolaty malt, the finsih gives more roasted peanut with a salty dry finish

M- medium body with moderate carbonation, foamy mouthfeel and a smooth finish

O- the most peanut-forward peanut butter porter that I've had thus farm more so that Sweet Baby Jesus, which I like

Thanks to UcDru for this beer from a massive box of Ohio locals he laid on me.

Pours a thickish looking black with a finger of light tan head that stays for the ride as a thick cap. Leaves bubble wallpapers of lace after a swirl.

Peanuts up front, nicely accompanied by chocolatey roast malt, and a hint of herbal bitter. Wow. Vanilla and coffee appear at times as the beer is consumed.

Not as much peanut in a medium strength taste, but roasty chocolate and light coffee flavors are there for sure, with some bready holding it all together. Sip ends with a rooty herbal bitter drying it out. Vanilla at times pokes in at times is completely absent as the beer comes to room temp.

Light in mouth, not as clean a flavor bill as would be optimal, not a great finish, and bit overcarbed. Definitely the beer's worst feature, though it doesn't destroy the enjoyment much as it could.

Overall a tasty beer with a bit of a rooty herbal thing going on in the linger I didn't care for, and not as "fresh nut taste" as others I have tried. Recommended but not highly.

Here it is, my first of many reviews. I really like this beer from a local brewery that puts out some really good stuff.

A - This porter had a really good deep brown color with a good head.

S - roasty

T - I was expecting the peanut butter to jump out at me. It didn't to my surprise but I still really enjoyed it. It had a nice roasty taste and picked up a bit coffee. Picked up some malty taste as well.

M - Solid bodied and very smooth.

O - I liked the roasty taste to this porter but I was hopping for a little more peanut butter taste. Despite that, it was a very good well balanced porter. I would recommend this.

12 ounce bottle, no date on the bottle that I could find. A friend of mine got this for me when he went to Cincinnati recently. Served in a snifter (as recommended on the bottle), the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch light tan head. Head retention is good, but there isn't much lacing at all. Aroma is nice, it smells just like a Reese's peanut butter cup! Lots of peanut butter and chocolate! Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also some roasted malt, coffee and bitterness noticeable. It smells more like a Reese's Cup than it tastes. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit coating with moderate carbonation. I liked this a lot, and hopefully I'll get a chance to try this one again sometime.
