COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sweet Baby Jesus Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter is a complex, robust porter. It is jet black in color with a tan, rocky head, full body and creamy, luxurious mouthfeel. Its lightly sweet, malty flavor is accented by strong notes of chocolate, coffee and peanut butter, and balanced by a subtle hop character and moderate 6.5% abv. Sweet Baby Jesus finishes smooth, dry and roasty with notes of chocolate, espresso and peanut butter so tasty, you’ll have no choice but to exclaim the name!

Sampled. Dark brown with tan head. Chocolate and peanut butter aroma. Flavor is roasted malt. Chocolate and crazy roasted peanut flavor. Don’t drink this if you have a peanut allergy. Very unique and Duclaw deserves a lot of credit for this very unique brew but a sample was enough for me.

Delightful color, head and aroma present in the initial pour. Smooth mouthfeel, not to fizzy, and just the right balance of chocolate (almost stout) and real peanut butter. One of my favorites. A gift from the DuClaw brewmaster. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

There is definitely peanut butter in the aroma. Roasty malt, cocoa, peanut butter. Smooth and a bit creamy, long and smooth finish. Interesting.

flatmatt (1062) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2014
12 oz bottle. Black pour with an off-white head. Very roasty coffee aroma with toasted peanut and milk chocolate. Flavor has a roasty balance of peanut and coffee on milk chocolate, hints of breakfast cereal and malted milk balls, with a clean, fairly light palate. It’s rather enjoyable, though rather light.

Bottle. Pours unclear deep brown, small tan head, done lacing. Aroma is really peanut butter, chocolate, roast, tobacco, mint. Flavor follows, pb, chocolate, mint, medium sweet, light bitter, bit of coffee on the finish. Medium body. Pretty interesting as a novelty; not sure i could drink an entire bottle

BillWyce (698) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2014
From notes: Poured opaque cola brown with a 1-finger tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and peanut butter, with some chocolate appearing as it warms a bit. Full body, with a moderate thickness and some oilyness in the finish. Flavor of roasted malt with a strong note of peanut butter, and some chocolate underneath. Good, but felt it could be better. Just couldn’t put my finger on what. Worth trying, but definitely a "one and done" style.

Poured this into my father’s old, handmade beer stein, which was purchased in Germany many years ago. It is a great idea for a brew, one which I have heard of homebrewers trying. The execution could have been a little better; a little more smoke and sweetness would have been appreciated. Fairly dry and lightly astringent, but with all the flavors that are advertised. Coffee flavor predominates, with dashes of dark chocolate and peanut butter. It is pretty good, but this is a style that could be great.

Overall a very good beer. I was really intrigued by a chocolate peanut butter beer...Unfortunately I now compare everything to bourbon country stout and this just falls a little short...Not quite as smooth. Definitely a pronounced PB/chocolate taste...I agree with that it could use less carbonation and be a little more viscous.

12oz bottle poured into a New Belgium snifter. This one had me excited. I love chocolate, peanut butter anything, so this one felt right up my alley. Unfortunately it left a little to he desired. Don’t get me wrong, this brew wasn’t terrible, but the execution could’ve been so much better. Pour was a deep, dark brown with a thin to nonexistent head that dissipated quickly. Nose was just decadent. Beautiful notes of chocolate and peanut butter that makes smelling it a treat in itself. Straight up homemade pb cup. Unfortunately the taste doesn’t quite follow. There’s chocolate and peanut butter for sure. Even a little roasted malt present. However, the peanut butter was a little too pronounced for my taste. Also, a little less carbonation and a little more viscosity would’ve done this one wonders. Overall, it’s a smooth brew with an interesting angle, that just wasn’t executed as well as it could’ve been. My first from Duclaw, and I wasn’t impressed.
