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, youíll have no choice but to exclaim the name!

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 Pours a dark chocolatety black. A thick tanish head fizzes up, but doesnít last too long. Soon as you pour it you smell coffee/peanutty deliciousness! It hits the nostrils immediately. You really want to take a whiff again to get the hints of peanut butter. When you drink it the tastes are in this order, light peanut butter, coffee, chocolate, sweet baby Jesus! There is a small amount of bitterness to the palate at the end and sometimes during but itís smooth to the end.

Bottle: deep brown body, black center with a small layer of khaki foam that sits on top. Aroma is very nutty. Peanut butter cupp-y with some milk chocolate notes, smooth roasted peanuts, light brown sugar. Like a liquid Reese's Cup. Taste is the same, perhaps lighter on the peanuts. Sweet milk chocolate, peanut, molasses, & a mild touch of dark fruit. Lightly bitter roast in the finish with some milky peanut butter. Good stuff.

Bottle. Split with Tom before the Cymbals Eat Guitar show on the night of the 50th anniversary of JFKís assassination. Pours Coca-Cola with a tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, sweet malt, and subtle peanut butter. Taste is a bit chalky with some chocolate and very minute trace of peanut butter, which I probably would not have pick up on if it hadnít been in the name. Thin palate, too, but hey, itís a porter, so what did I expect? Decent.

On tap at Max's in Baltimore. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Lots of chocolate and peanuts on the nose. Lots of roastiness and intense flavor alcohol is up front. Medium to full bodied. Fairly sweet.

Bottle. Black color. Decent head. Aroma is definitely peanut butter, with cocoa also. Maybe hazelnut too. Light sweetness. A tad watery. Some roasted malt taste. Creamy texture. Kind of a funky flavor. Ok. The best part is the aroma of PB. Sweet baby Jesus! If you ainít first your last. - Ricky Bobby.

Draft at Capones during my bday lunch trip. Poured a solid pitch black body with dark ruby edges with an average sized foamy beige head. Aroma is big chocolatey Tootsie Roll with a hint of peanut butter and a touch of light coffee. I found the body to be a bit on the thin side with average to softer carbonation and a lingering aftertaste. Flavor is burnt char, chocolate, Tootsie Roll, hint of peanut butter and coffee. Good beer.

Bottle. As thick as youíd expect ... deep and rich. The peanut butter thing doesnít come across that well in beer ... almost off-putting actually. But among the beers Iíve tried that have attempted the peanut butter thing, this is the least gross. The peanut stuff overwhelms both the initial whiff and the first taste ... but if you set it aside, this ainít a bad porter. But sheesh, I wish they hadnít done the peanuts. (#5323, 11/12/2013)

Tap. Pours dark brown with creamy tan head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malts, peanut butter, some dark fruit and faint floral notes. Flavor is a good mix of dry, roast notes and milk chocolate sweetness with some supporting peanut butter and dark fruit esters; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.
