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!

Leighton (11638) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2014
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Pedro. Pours clear, rich brown with a frothy tan head. The nose holds dry peanut butter, cocoa, a bit of toasted cereal. Medium sweet flavor with lots of toasted, grainy cereal, some earth, chocolate, hints of dusty peanuts. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish with further toasty bread, peanut essence, cocoa. Pretty solid overall, especially for a novelty beer.

Panzuriel (1347) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Sweet Baby Jesus is a rich dark brown opaque liquid with a thin ring of mocha bubbles. Nose is strong with roasted nut presence. Upon further review, there is a definite mocha hint there as well. The First taste is chocolate and medium malt. the peanut becomes more apparent towards the end with a decent amount of bitters. Quite a bit more dry than anticipated. The body is fluid and lively. Very interesting beer.

12 oz bottle for $4.00 at Water’s Edge in Bridgewater. How disappointing to discover this gem uses partial artificial ingredients (read the label). Guess I would have loved it otherwise.

LinusStick (2879) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2014
Fantastic beer! One of the best I’ve had all year. I’ve had other beers that attempted this flavor but this is the first one that I feel did it perfectly. Aroma was huge and perfect. Strong peanut butter and chocolate. Smells just like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a one finger tan head. Taste was awesome as well. A little thin, but strong chocolate flavor with a nice peanut butter backbone. The peanut butter wasn’t as strong in the taste as it was in the aroma, but at least it was present. Mild carbonation. Will buy some more to last until next winter

Weezel (212) - Florida, USA - APR 24, 2014
Awesome aroma of peanut butter, dry and bitter coffee and sweet chocolate. Appears dark and translucent brown. Taste is that dry roasted peanuts, bitter chocolate, roasted malts, and bubbly cracker finish. Could be a tad sweeter and incorporate the peanut butter and chocolate more but pretty swell.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with beige head that lasts. The aroma is chococolate, roast, and strong peanut butter. Medium mouthfeel with milk chocolate, light roast and sweet peanut butter in finish. Good.
