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!

THOUGHTS: Not bad but a little artificial. Slightly watered down, too. Definitely interesting and worth a try. Fun but not spectacular. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a medium to dark brown that looked nearly black in the glass with bright red highlights and an average, off-white head that mostly diminished but left excellent lacing. The aroma had heavy milk chocolate and chocolate milk; moderate coffee; cherry; grape jelly; slightly face peanut butter aroma. The initial flavor was sweet; while the finish was moderately sweet, slightly acidic and bitter, and ever so slightly sour with an average duration. There was chocolate, coffee, peanut butter, cherry, and roasted malt, but it all seemed slightly artificial and slightly water. The medium body was sort of creamy with fizzy carbonation and a lightly astringent finish.

Peanut butter, chocolate and beer are three of my most favorite things, so I had to give it a try. Surprisingly, this beer tastes exactly as you'd think. Unfortunately, these 3 things shouldn't be together. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A delicious peanut butter stout. The peanut butter is up front, with the heaviness of the stout in the back. Not as smooth as a Guinness, but flavorful all the way through, making it worth the time. Overall, both on tap and in a bottle, a fantastic beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head. A super sweet nose of toffee and vanilla. Big sugary malts, vanilla, nuts, light coffee, brown sugar. Ok. Too sweet for me.

Bottle via Will. Pours a dark brown/black, lots of tan head. Aroma Reese’s Peanut Butter Puffs. Body light and pleasantly roasty, with a slightly herbal tang to the finish. Lots of peanut butter, too. Nice novelty.

The pour is black as night with a tan head. It leaves a decent cap throughout. The aroma is awesome! Tons of peanut butter sweetness and roasty chocolate notes. The taste is quite nice as well with lots of chocolate and unsweetened peanut butter. There's some coffee as well. The finish is silky smooth with the tiniest hop note. Really solid beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty cool gimmicky beer that smells and tastes just like a Reese’s peanut butter cup. Chocolate, peanut, liga sweet malts. Fun beer.
