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!

Served on-tap at Al’s of Hampden. A - Pours dark brown with a small off white head leaving spotty trails of thin lace down the top part of the glass. S - Smells of fresh toasted peanuts, bakers chocolate and the dark roasted grain. The nuts are strong, combining with the chocolate to make this ones nose exactly as advertised. T - Tastes just like it smells, maybe with a bit less nuts, making it a bit more balanced. Some light hop bitterness comes through as it warms up. Finish is roasty, lingering on the palate for quite awhile after consumption. M - Heavy body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, roasty feel. Finish is roasty, lingering for quite awhile. O- Overall a pretty good chocolate PB beer but not the best I have had. Definitely worth a shot if your into this kind of beer, just don’t expect the something mind blowing.

Bottle to English pint glass. Pours an opaque dark brown, with a sparse yellow head. Totally can smell the roasted malts and the peanut butter smell on the aroma. Has a somewhat disappointing watery mothfeel, but again the flavor is spot on for the description. Pretty tasty.

Bottle at Bubba's Burgers & Beer, Bridgeville PA Appearance - black as can be, slightly transparent around the edges, light brown head that fades fast Nose - hint of namesake peanut butter, roasty notes and a bit of sweetness Flavor - deep roasted malt flavs, evolving into just the right amount of PB at the finish Notes - the bottle suggests I'll proclaim the name! Perhaps. Even if I don't, this is a solid, robust porter with just the right amount of peanut butter flavor.

If you like peanut butter, then the aroma is great. Mild hops undertone, but peanut butter dominates.

jmcgavin12 (473) - Madison, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Pours a dark brown with one finger of tan head. Aroma is sweet with roasted malts, peanut butter, and chocolate mocha. Taste is medium to heavy sweet with notes of peanut butter and a slight bitter finish. Interesting and delicious!

cheap (3967) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2014 Smells like peanut butter beer. From a bottle. No head, dark beer. In taste, it does have some peanut in the background. However, this beer is kind of bitter and what else can be said? Can I say it is somewhat artificial in nature? Does not live up to its name sake, quite disappointed. Long burnt bitter linger thing going on here. Not impressed. get another name you assholes. Allah Akbar!

Pours a deep dark brown with a tan foamy head. Aroma of roasted peanuts. Taste like a bag of peanuts. Roasty. A hint if chocolate. A little bitter. Very interesting brew!!

RONCOD (216) - Uledi, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Poured a dark brown color with a medium tan head. Smelled like peanut butter. The taste was a dry, chocolate peanut butter. It was like a brownie in a bottle. Very good!

12 oz bottle shared by huhzubendah, thanks Matt! Pours a dark translucent brown with light easily passing as cherry red on the glass. Aroma is salty nuts upfront, with muted sweet chocolate in the background. Flavor is peanuts, roast, chocolate, coffee in the distance. Overall unbalanced, thin mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Overly sweet and artificial aftertaste.

Aroma: Immediate peanut butter presence with light hops. Appearance: Jet black with a light brown head. Little retention. Taste: This follows the aroma. Medium cocoa with a fairly strong peanut butter taste. It had an awkward "Reese’s Puffs" cereal quality, with a medium hop presence that threw off any intended sweetness. Palate: Mild carbonation, somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Overall: this beer was enjoyable for the first few cold sips. Afterwards, it became an awkward challenge to finish with the strange flavor combination. Worth trying once, but I wouldn’t recommend a 6 - pack.

Dark but not overpowering, with chocolate malts counterbalanced by a smooth peanut butter undertone. The best chocolate peanut butter porter I've had! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
