This is a great Porter from the tap. The chocolate and peanut butter is subtle and not overbearing. Very drinkable pint after pint.

Wonderful peanutty nose with the right amount of chocolate for an adult Reese's PB cup taste that is not too sweet. Surprisingly good. This is worth buying if you like Reese's Peanut Butter cups

Wasn't sure what a peanut butter porter beer would taste like, but tried it draft while in San Diego at local restaurant. Was surprising good, very smooth, sweet (but not too much). Not as much peanut butter taste as the belching beaver peanut butter milk stout, but was a good tasting beer. Would recommend trying it.

Appearance: Pours dark brown with some bright gold/orange-ish highlights. Decent head retention.

Smell: Peanut butter, chocolate, and some roasting notes in the nose.

Taste: Wow. I got all of the peanut butter cup-ness in the first sip. Good. What surprised me the most was the very pleasant vanilla notes mid-taste. Then the beer finished with a really nice porter sharpness on the tongue. A lot of layers to this one.

Mouthfeel: Medium to thin body, straight down the middle. I would have liked a little more mouthfeel.

Drinkability: Very smooth drinking. Balanced and interesting. If you’re intrigued by the name of the beer (I was - I’m a Reese’s mega fan), you owe it to yourself to try this. Recommend!
