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.

Bottle. Nice notes of roast, chocolate malts and nuts. Body was a bit thin for my liking, but the brew was solid overall. Nice dry and sweet finish. Not bad.

Dark malts, very little aroma.... taste is super weak, where is the chocolate? Maybe a bad bottle?

LetsGoState (617) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Appearance is small tan head with deep brown color. Aroma is a not so great peanut butter. Taste at first is a mild, malty porter, but then the peanut butter hits. Overall something I was really looking forward to with the chocolate peanut butter combo, but the peanut butter taste was terrible, which ruined the beer.

Bottle pours dark reddish brown with thick tan head. Peanut butter, roast, chocolate. Moderately bitter and sweet. Medium, crisp body. Just couldn’t get into this ... too gimmicky.

[6600-20140815] Tap. Wafer chocolate aroma is super choco-cereal. Cola brown body with a quick foamy off-white head. Chocolate wafer flavour is just super chocolatey. Full body. Delicious! (8/3/8/4/17) 4.0

Dacrza (544) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - DEC 19, 2014
DATE TASTED: December 18, 2014... GLASSWARE: Guinness classic pint... OCCASION: a Blackish marathon... APPEARANCE: dark black body with creamy brown head that laces and traces well; head is steady throughout... AROMA: burnt toffee and what can only be described as scratch’n’sniff peanut butter; oats, chocolate and vanilla provide a balance of undertones... PALATE: rich, creamy and medium-bodied; slightly warming at 6.5% ABV; agreeable...TASTE: more peat than peanut; roasted malty goodness--a bit grainy and gritty, as a lunchbox brew should be... OVERALL: expectations were impossibly high here, and unfortunately, the beer could not meet them--but to be fair, its mild chocolate and peanut butter compliments the earthy mouthfeel, and a solid porter is worthy of being sought out...

Tap @ Mellow Mushroom. Dark brown with tan head. heavy whiff of chocolate and some basement plus coffee. Roast and chocolate flavor. Light ish bodied, not as smooth as it could be.

bastarda (116) - Freiburg, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2014
shared with bartlebier, Bierle and Oldmanriver. promising aromas of Chocolate-Baby-Porridge, peanut buttered toast, bayrisch Blockmalz, and some pale ale malt being meshed in. Tastewise, there’s something quite unredeemed about it: a dull morning’s instant caramel cappuccino with some Manner-waffles dunked into it, finished on a burpily sour note.

Eh. Love it or hate it beer and I hated it. Nothing subtle about the chocolate or peanut butter. Harsh and pretty nasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
