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!

Rated 3/20/13. 12 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a dark burgundy color. The head is a three finger heavy cream shade. It looks to be very well carbonated judging how the bubbles from the body rise upward, as well. Nice streaks of lace are left on the glass. S: Well, they were talking about chocolate and peanut butter with this one...and golly gee, it smells of chocolate and peanut butter. There’s a definite vibe of roasted nuts here, and maybe just a hint of fruity esters. T: Personally, I’d start off by saying that the chocolate used here rubs me the wrong way - and just now, I catch "porter with artificial flavors" on the label. Damnit. So does the rest of the flavor profile redeem the experience? Well...sort of. I really enjoy the nutty flavors of this (both from the malt and peanuts) on the finish in particular. Still, this could have been really something if the chemical off-notes were toned down. M: Thin and dry. It goes down superbly due to the weak body and higher carbonation, but in no way does it feel substantial. At least it scrubs away some of the poorer flavors represented here. O: There is a really sound porter here...but the chemical qualities really hurt the quality of the brew. It does taste like advertised, and I can see this one appealing to non-beer drinkers. As a gimmick, it’s likable enough where I don’t really regret buying a six pack, but not to the point where I’d buy it again.

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.

Sware217 (1) - Virginia, USA - JUL 8, 2014 does not count
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

jbruner (2136) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUL 5, 2014
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.

(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 (4635) - 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.
