Pours a caramel cola with a finger of mocha foam. Nose is bitter coffee, roasted malt, peanuts and semi sweet chocolate. Taste follows suit. Some peanut flavor but not peanut butter as far as my taste. A lot more bitter base stout flavor. Feel is crisp, not quite as full as I was expecting. Overall, okay.

I love me some peanut butter. I could live on PB&J sammiches breakfast lunch and dinner.
I love porters. They're my favorite category of beer.
Peanut butter porters? Not as bad as they sound. If this 4 pack weren't free to me, I wouldn't have gone out and bought more than a single, but this is pretty good...for a freebie. Up front is the chocolately notes typical of a porter, and it starts out smooth. The peanut butter hits on the after taste of you're drinking quickly, or after a second or two of you let it settle in your mouth. It is pretty abrupt, and I can taste why some, especially those that aren't peanut butter fans to begin with, would find it distasteful, but I dont find it overwhelming. Then again, I am also known to eat a reeses whole or finish off a bag of peanut butter m&ms quickly.
Overall, I'd give it a 7.75 out of 10.

A: The beer is very close to being jet black in color and only has traces of dark brown near the edges of the glass. It poured with a quarter finger high dark beige head that left a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of peanut butter are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has stronger flavors of peanut butter along with additional notes of chocolate and caramel, the latter of which are only noticeable in the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The taste of this beer has a nice amount of peanut butter and chocolate flavors, although I wouldn't compare it to the type of intensity that you get when you bite into a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.

My good friend and old neighbor from the 'Wego gave me a bottle of this beer. It poured an opaque dark with no head and no lace. The scent had a nutter butter flare. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with subtle peanut butter presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it is an ok beer.

Brownish black with a tan ring. This is night and day between the smell and taste, smell is full of creamy and nutty peanut butter with chocolate accenting. Just like breathing in a peanut butter cup. Taste is so disappointing after this: bland and watery roasted malt with a hint of peanuts and bitter chocolate. Nothing like it smelled. Feel is watery, thin, malty and more roasted than sweet. Unfulfilled potential

From a bottle with a slight tan-brown foam head and a dark, dark brown body. The head recedes quickly leaving a wispy layer behind. Scent is peanuts up front with a nice chocolate and coffee backup. Taste is on the sweeter side, with a nice mix of peanut, chocolate, and caramel and a hefty roasted malt backbone. Feel is silky but not heavy and a sweet aftertaste. Honestly the flavors come across as more subdued than expected, which is a nice change of pace from some of the nuttier or harsher beers that incorporate peanut flavors. Would recommend at least trying!

This beautiful brew hits all the spots and then some. Truly creamy and delicious. The absolute perfect porter. The flavor is unreal. I tend to prefer stouts, as I like a strong flavor, but this is my absolute favorite. I’m not even the biggest fan of peanut butter, but Wild Ride nailed this hard. I just wish it were more widely available, I have a really hard time finding it in convenient locations.

i have seen this around quite a lot but didnt get to drinking one until now. its a cool beer, looks like easily the most popular of the wild ride stuff. seems like there are more and more peanut butter beers around all the time now. this is pretty stuff, shiny and near black with over an inch of light brown cream head on it, great retention, almost a nitro look to it, really sexy from the tap. aroma is peanut butter forward, but its unique in that its dry and that there are a lot of chocolate and coffee notes in the dark grain, not sweet either, like adult chocolate and coffee. the peanut butter seems like a dried powdered thing to me, smell almost dusty and the taste starts like that, its not oily and rich like real peanut butter so they must have used something like that. that said, its real peanut flavor for sure, and this being on the drier side for what it is is nice. smooth full feel, some needed bitterness from the roasted barley, and an amazing expansive soft feel, the texture is butter, really working well here and even enhancing the flavors. notes of pretzel, dark chocolate, and slight smoke to finish with the peanut butter. good effort here, i could happily drink a couple of these, which is definitely rare for me in a style like this. good work.

Mild taste of Peanut butter. It was an enjoyable one-off. Not something I would want to drink often, byt was an interesting change.

L - 1-finger hazelnut head rapidly vanishes, leaving a dark brown cola body.

S - peanut butter, chocolate, roast, a hint of green pepper.

T - lots of mild peanut butter and semisweet chocolate. A touch of pepper, otherwise a clean, smooth middle. Low bitterness. Moderate-low sweetness. No booziness.

F - medium-light body with near-absent carb.

O - the body on this is lacking, but it’s an enjoyable late summer porter.

Athletic tan over jet; sweet roast, toffee, cocoa, + a ton of peanuts; raisin and brown sugar; a slick nutty middle + fading cocoa to end; round + smooth.

4 3.75 3.5 4 4

Peanut on nose never really turns up. Body is creamy but there’s a chocolaty depth missing that makes me want this to be a stout, not a porter. Not Reese’s + I can’t quite forgive it for that. And a gusher even though it’s undercarbed? Rounds out as it opens, though, and somehow sticks the landing as a characterful summer pint.

This is perhaps the best porter I've ever had. The foam is minimal but a beautiful caramel color, the best itself almost black. The smell is sweet, liked caramel. Once sipped, there is just a tad of carbonation but you quickly get past that to a pb taste, not too much or too little. It's just the perfect sweetness and the body is light. Can't wait to get some more, and I'm not a fan of peanut butter in the least, but this works!
