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.

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

LetsGoState (616) - 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 (543) - 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

dogfish120love (1003) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Pours a dark brown with a tan lacing. Aroma is peanut butter, cocoa puffs and chocolate. The palate is very odd and the carbonation is a little weird. Sweet, but not cloying

TJS alexandria va 12/14: pours dark as night, nice foamy head that stays. Aroma hits hard of chocolate, coffee and peanuts. First sip begins with chocolate, and a bit nutty sweet. Clean drinking for such a dark beer. Not very complex, leaves palate clean. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
