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!

Pours dark brown with some light brown head. The aroma is...surprise peanut butter and chocolate although not nearly as strong as I expected from reading many reviews. The taste is similar but if you are expecting it to taste like a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup you will be disappointed, There is hint of peanut initially but that gives way to some bitterness. The body is on the thin side. I think this beer is way overrated.

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

Drank straight from the bottle, but looks nice and dark. Aroma is peanut forward, then roast, then a dark chocolate back end. Taste is pretty much basic bitter porter, soy and earth, roast ending. Not bad but nothing crazy.

Bottle from a trade with pineypower. Pours dark brown/black color with tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and peanut butter. Roasted malt, coffee and chocolate flavors up front with just a hint of peanut butter. Decent. Thanks Dean.

TheHopster (784) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2014
(Bottle). Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, cocoa and faint peanut butter. Pours a dark brown with minimal head. The flavor is genuine porter with nice accent of coffee and minor flavors of cocoa and peanut butter. Nice smooth palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared by a friend. Clear chestnut brown in color with a medium beige head. Aroma of peanuts, caramel and sweet malt. Peanut butter and chocolate flavor with some caramel before a thin finish.

jgb9348 (4625) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Deep dark brown coloured body with a thinnish, one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of peanuts, roasted malt, figs and a lot of caramel and raisins, but the peanuts are everywhere. Medium-bodied; Strong peanut flavour at first that mellows out with the roasted malt hitting hard and the caramel sweetness really noticeable, along with some lighter chocolate and cacao notes. Aftertaste is sweet at first, but with the roasted malt and peanuts, turns out to be slightly savoury. Overall, a nice beer with a very strong peanut note and a little bit of sweetness that pairs well and makes a very good desert drink. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Giant in Falls Church, Virginia on 14-May-2014 later in the day after hockey in Arlington, Virginia.

Right on! Not too sweet or bitter. Good blend of chocolate with a hint of peanut butter. Reese's in a porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pint at Baltimore airport - dark brown - minimal lace - smells, not surprisingly, of peanut butter and chocolate, but also some leafy, earthy hopsand tobacco - feels fizzy in the mouth, like cola - tastes of sweet chocolate and peanut butter up front, but then bitter, roasty malts and bitter hops late - these two qualities don’t work together all that well - finish of tootsie rolls and tobacco - meh.
