^ my rationale was: "I've added peanut butter and chocolate already and if I add coffee I could call it peanut butter chocolate mocha stout and get my wife to drink some"

Good call.  I've tried many different beers on the wife, she likes none of them. Oh well, more for me.

I brewed a 3 gal batch of Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter.
It required 1.2 oz. cacoa nibs and 1.2 lbs of PB2.
The PB2 was about $18. The PB2 was added at end of boil.
It never really dissolved, and quickly dropped to the bottom of my glass fermenter.
I let the beer sit on it for 2 weeks. I remember it was a mess to clean.
Now 7 months old. I can say it's decent, with a unique taste.
There is PB aroma to the nose, but not a strong PB Chocolate taste.
Don't tell friends its Peanut Butter Cup beer and see if they can guess the flavor.
Definitely a unique novelty, one is enough type of beer.
Personally, I'm glad I brewed the batch, but once is enough.
