One of the things I liked most as a child was peanut butter and chocolate chip sandwiches. I used to have them every day in elementary school. I don’t think I could have them now because as I’ve gotten older, I really don’t like sweet things, but as a child, they were amazing. Hopefully the beer is just as good.
Style: American Porter
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Satisfy your most aggresive cravings with King Crunch, our peanut butter and banana Imperial Porter brewed in honor of The King’s favorite sandwich. Both robust and creamy, your senses will delight with notes of creamy peanut butter and fresh ripe bananas.”

The beer poured with a two finger, medium brown head. It dissipated quickly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was dark brown, almost black. There was some carbonation visible, despite how dark the beer was. The nose was a combination of dark roasted malt, milk chocolate, peanut butter and bananas. The taste started with some booze, but quickly went into milk chocolate. There was also roasted malts and smoke. There was peanut butter and banana next. The body was really thick and chewy with a lot of carbonation. It had a lengthy and sweet finish with peanut butter and chocolate. I purchased this beer awhile ago, so I have no clue how much I paid for it. I didn’t hate this beer, but I couldn’t see myself having more than one because of the sweetness.
