It has become an instant hit already. Karl Strauss’ Peanut Butter Cup Porter was first released in 2012 and 80 kegs were killed in 5 days. With more on the way, Karl is bringing a 40 barrel batch to Los Angeles Beer Week this year. That’s 80 more to last the week.
The beer is brewed with chocolate and caramel malts with some peanut powder. Cocoa nibs are added for extra chocolate flavor. The final product is roasty porter flavor with a smooth chocolate and peanut butter finish.
The brewery plans on bottling this in the future. (The next whale for sure.)
