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!

Purchased from the Wegman’s cooler. All I got was a thin dark drink that I tried so very hard to pick up a flavor on. I could not get the chocolate or the peanut butter aromas or tastes. Something very wrong here. Must be me. I got swamp water with a drop or two of artificial vanilla. That’s about it. However I give points for the name and the ABV. Those took some effort.

Aroma and flavor are both Reese’ peanut butter cup. I like sweet stouts and porters, but this was over the top even for me. Gimmicky effort--if you find yourself at a DuClaw there are lots of better choices.

Hot damn, I keep this in the cellar for a week and get to enter its 200th rating. Bottled 01/1?/14. Nose is of sweet chocolate with some roast and powder -- powdered ’International’ coffee mix, powdered milk, mocha, powdered peanut butter. Very faintly fruity. Pours dark red-brown that’s black in the glass, with a sudsy tan head. Taste of chocolate with very light peanut butter, some slightly acrid tang, low mineral, vague fruit. Overall only lightly sweet with very low bitterness, no real acidity but a touch of ash. Alcohol is essentially hidden, medium body. I think the mania of trying to add peanut butter has mangled things a bit here; on the surface, it sounds like a great idea, but in practice the elements are really disparate and detract from each other, and I’m not sure the base porter is all that good. I’ll say this, though: it could have been a goopy, syrupy, cloying mess, but as it is it’s quite drinkable once you get past the powdery addition. Maybe just don’t have it as the first beer of the night?

Aroma is a peanut butter sandwich made with wheat bread. The flavor is the same as the aroma mixed with a watered down stout. Not bad but not something I’d buy every day.

Pours deep black with a thin beige head. Upon pouring a terrific aroma of chocolate peanut butter fills the nose. Amazingly the aroma slowly transfer to the taste as it warms up which is followed by some dark mild toasted malt and caramel. Palate is a full smooth and creamy body. The finish is more of the same but gets slightly richer as it warms up some more some mild bitter notes for balance. Overall a very tasty chocolaty peanut butter flavored brew. Very enjoyable to drink.

Dark brown or black with almost no head poured from a tap. Chocolate and peanut butter in the taste. Great beer

Tap sample at Iron Abbey. Dark brown thin head. Aroma full on chocolate for sure and maybe PB? Wild, yeah this is hefty on chocolate with PB flavor. Odd. Too much ’odd’ going on with this one. Couldn’t drink much of this.

Dark, dark beer. Smells of chocolate with a hint of smokiness and peanut butter butter. Tastes like a roasted peanut butter stout.

12 oz. bottle from BMart- thanks a lot, Brian! Pours a deep, opaque brown with a finger of khaki head that settles into a film and laces the glass. Aroma of milk chocolate, peanut butter, toffee, coffee with heavy cream, vanilla, and toast. Flavor of dark and milk chocolate, toast, vanilla, roast, peanut butter, earth, and flat cola. Medium-bodied, with a smooth mouthfeel and low carbonation. I sat on this a couple months before trying; I wonder if the peanut butter would be more pronounced fresh. Probably. Still a nice beer.
