COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First brewed in 2011, this Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter is jet black in color with a tan, rocky head, full body and creamy, luxurious mouthfeel. Its lightly sweet, malty flavor is accented by rich flavors of chocolate, coffee and peanut butter, and balanced by a subtle hop character and moderate 6.2% abv. Sweet Baby Jesus finishes smooth, dry, and roasty with lingering notes of chocolate and peanut butter so savory, you will exclaim its name!

Bottle: Ruby-black with a frothy tan head. Peanut and shell aroma. Dry-roasted, burned peanut , chocolate malt flavour. Unexpected taste..not sweet at all..........a nice husky bitter, dry and ashy. More roast peanut than peanut butter. Very enjoyable...nicely different than most peanut-oriented beers.

Bottle pour - near black with flecks of red when held to a light - minimal tan head. Aroma is interesting - peanut butter is very obvious, dark malts, extremely roasty (burnt malt notes), but all with an underlying sweetness with some coffee and chocolate...one moment Iím thinking this is really cool and the next Iím a bit turned off by things - odd. Flavor hits up front with some peanut butter, sweet malts, then turns quickly to bitter with burnt sugars and malts. Coffee plays in the background...this one came out a lot more bitter than I was anticipating, and not in a good way. Odd, slightly sour finish plays with my head a bit too. Mouthfeel is a bit on the thin side for something this roasted. Quite meh on this one - Iím usually a bit high on my ratings, but Iíll bring down there average here a bit...

I couldnít get a hold of the Karl Strauss Peanut Butter Porter but my buddy Beercation hooked me up with this wonderful consolation prize: DuClaw Sweet Baby Jesus! Chocolate Peanut Butter Potter 6.2% Wow, the aroma on this is great - roasty nutty chocolate, the image in my mind is of toasted nuts covered inn luscious chocolate. Awesome. Medium-full bodied with a raspy carbonation. The taste is nutty, roasty, bitter chocolate. This is really really nice stuff though the aroma kicks the flavors ass though both are great. Umm, nutty chocolate goodness...

PorterPounder (7052) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Newport News, Va - Total Wine & More - 12 oz bottle. Dark, cola-like brown pour, long lasting, medium thick khaki colored head. Aroma of generic brand peanut butter and topsoil with a hint of chocolate. Bold flavor with peanut butter being the most prominent, some trailing chocolate accents, similar to a liquid Reeseís Peanut Butter Cup. Mouthfeel could be just a tad thicker to match the bold flavor. Overall, a pleasant novelty.

popery (1876) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 13, 2016
The beer is dark brown and appears fairly clear. Small to medium beige head. Decent retention. The aroma is sweet, cheap milk chocolate and intense peanuts. Thereís also a healthy dose of cola. Itís an over the top in a gimmicky sort of way to me. Yes, it smells like peanuts and chocolate but not in a particularly good way. It reminds me of a novelty soap. Taste is a bit better, but itís just shallow and sweet with artificial-tasting flavors. Thereís no rich depth to offset the sweet peanut butter and chocolate. Itís like a crappy candy bar. Thereís also a funny bitter sour twang in the finish as a coffee note kicks up - seems oddly out of place. The thin feel hurts this beer a lot. No creaminess. Itís just fizzy and light.

RCx240 (197) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 3, 2016
Pitch black with a foamy tan head. Powerful aroma of dark chocolate, peanut butter, espresso. Taste is a rich, nutty, unsweetened peanut butter with underpinning dark chocolate notes. Finishes bitter with a lingering nutty aftertaste. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. Overall pretty decent.

Many thanks to Erzengel for sharing!
Pours very dark brown colour with a huge most good lasting tan head. Aroma of peanuts, caramel, vanillla, dark mild roasted malt. Taste of dark roasted malt, tons of peanuts, vanilla, chocolate, delicious!

Many thanks to my "Santa 2015" jsquire for this bottle! Peanuts and chocolate in the nose. The beer starts very dry - like a Snickers without sugar. The beer is very dry, lots of dark roasted malts, the chocolate and the peanut butter are not too overwhelming. I like the great smooth combination. Great stuff!
