You’ve heard of comfort food. Meet comfort beer. Back Forty Peanut Butter Porter is easily one of of the best can designs we’ve seen in 2016.
The Gadsden, Alabama based brewery took a porter and aged it on roasted peanuts. They call it comfort food. It really is comfort beer. You see, it’s not easy to brew with anything fatty or oily. Oil destroys the surface tension of bubbles. No bubbles means flat beer. Execution and nuance is key.
It’s creamy, it’s big, it’s just what it sounds like. Brewed with crushed peanuts and a malt bill thick enough to slather on some bread, Peanut Butter Porter belongs on your grocery list right next to the jelly, bananas & bacon.
Back Forty Peanut Butter Porter is a little sweeter than other peanut butter beers out there, which we think is a good thing. It’s a freaking 10.5% alcohol by volume porter with a nutty peanut butter finish. While it’s not just like eating a peanut butter sandwich, it’s definitely not just a beer either. There is truth in the name: Peanut Butter Porter. Plus A-MAZING packaging.
Back Forty Peanut Butter Porter is available now in 12 ounce cans. Don’t worry, there’s no crusts here.
Availability: 12oz Cans
