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.

Bottle: The aroma is huge peanut butter cookies and light-moderate chocolate. It pours a dark brown with some orange highlights. It has a small beige head that fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is sporadic thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light-moderate dark chocolate. There is some faint roasted malt and coffee in the middle that quickly gets dominated by a peanut butter cookie finish. It’s medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation and a slightly oily mouthfeel. Overall, I love peanut and chocolate, so this is great for me.

I’ve been avoiding tasting this beer because I was afraid of the ingredients. I wasn’t sure that peanut butter and chocolate would meld together. But they did! This was an amazing beer! I could probably only drink one or, at most, two of these in one night. The flavors were so rich and on the sweet side. The beer poured a black color with a small tan head. The head left some good lacing around the inside of the glass. The nose was full of peanut butter, chocolate, toasted malts and some really light hops. This beer tasted like a Reese’s peanut butter cup dipped in alcohol. It had a really delicious and smooth peanut flavor with that rich and creamy chocolate tone. The finish was malty with a touch of alcohol on the tongue with even more creamy peanut butter flavor. This was a very good beer!

Pours dark brown with a light tan head, not much lace. Damn, the aroma on this is fantastic, I wasn’t expecting the peanut butter to stick out as much as it does, smells just like a reeses, the chocolate and peanut butter mingle very nicely. Taste is peanut butter, chocolate, light coffee, finishes with a mild bitterness and leaves behind overall nuttiness, medium body, a tad watery. I think this beer is pretty damn good, and would be even better if it had some heavier body to it.

Dark in color, as expected. Lots of coffee aroma. Roasted coffee and chocolate flavors, with a hint of peanut butter finish. A nice offering.

200th rating! Pours black with a tan head. Aromas of chocolate and peanut butter. Taste the same with some coffee and malt sweetness. Peanut butter is nicely balanced with the chocolate. Not overpowering. Little light on the palate. Not much lacing but overall very nice.

Poured black with a bubbly, quickly disappearing head. Aroma is dark chocolate with a touch of coffee. Taste is noticeably of chocolate with a little bit of peanut butter but also reminiscent of dark coffee with heavy creamer. has a slightly bitter finish but is a tad watery. .

Sample bottle from distributor’s salesmen. Pours dark, thin off-white head, aroma of nuts, roasted malt, chocolate. Taste is overly malty, sweet, light peanut butter, chocolate, a little coffee. There’s been a buzz about this beer, and I like porters, but I find this to be highly overrated. The peanut just doesn’t work for me, but I understand the popularity base don the wide appeal of peanut butter and the catchy name (which, like other DuClaw bers, has absolutely nothing to do with what’s in the bottle).

Back in Bethesda and not missing a beat on my ticking. This one pours dark brown with a fading tan head. Light peanut and roast aroma. The flavor is nice but a little unbalanced. Hershey syrup and peanut butter with hazelnnut hints. The palate is a little watery and carbonation is a little low. This was interesting but I wasn’t that into it.
