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!

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 28, 2013
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.

Bottle from Liquor Barn poured into pint glass. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate and peanut butter. Usually I hate porters, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Pours a dark chestnut brown color with mahogany edges and a one finger beige head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Decent retention with sporadic streaks of spotty lacing left behind. Slightly smokey, robust dark malt aroma with a decent amount of roast countered by sweeter dessert-like chocolate malt and chunky peanut butter. peanut skin, ground nuts and creamy peanut butter actually stand out in the nose. Lightly roasted coffee bean with subtle lactic milk presence along with dark chocolate, caramel, toffee and bread. Interesting take on the style with peanut bitter elements really coming through. Lighter bod than expected with tight carbonation. Probably a little over carved with dry. deeply roasted dark malt bitterness. Somewhat acrid and lacking in much needed sweetness. The creamy peanut butter and silky chocolate notes form nose are missing. Subtle hint of dry, roasted peanuts along with burnt dark toast bittersweet cocoa. Faint caramel sweetness with toffee, bread and biscuit. Looks and smells great but the flavor profile is overly roasted to the point of tasting almost burnt. One dimensional with not as much peanut or chocolate as I had hoped for.

In der Nase Haselnuss-Schockolade mit leichter Rauchnote , Geschmack zwischen Cookie und Nutella, vollmundig, macht Lust auf mehr. Im Abgang deutlicher Abschluss in schwarzem Kaffee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. I had never even heard of DuClaw before they showed up in the Louisville market out of nowhere. Had to try it! Pours an ink black with a tan head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma of, well....a Reece’s Peanut Butter cup! Taste is milk chocolate and peanut butter up front and nicely blended with toasty malts, caramel, toffee, a combination of citrus and dank pine hops, and a hint of coffee. Medium, almost full bodied. Creamy texture. Moderate carbonation. Dry, slightly bitter finish. Overall this is definitely good and certainly the dessert aspect of this beer cannot be denied. Sweet, but not cloying. However the hops are coming through a bit too much in my opinion and creating an odd dank flavor underneath the chocolate and peanut butter that throws off the flavor a bit for me. Not that it throws it off too much though, as I am a chocolate junkie and definitely intend to buy this many, many more times. Definitely, certainly, and absolutely worth trying if you’re a fan of chocolate and dessert beers.

12 oz. bottle from Old Town; shared with Boo. Aroma: Can’t deny the connection to Reese Cups here... peanut butter is at the fore, and light chocolates notes trail somewhat behind. Appearance: Dark amber brown pour with a foamy tan head that settles into a patchy skin. Flavor: Chocolate and peanut butter up front; peanut butter continues and terminates with a bitter roast-like finish (roasted peanuts or malts?); never devolves into sweet stickiness. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Not something I’d purchase on a regular basis, but well thought out and executed; definitely worth a shot for peanut butter and chocolate lovers- that is, anyone who isn’t a sociopath.

bottle that poured a dark brown with a tan head and an oily lacing. aroma is medium roasted malts, lots of chocolate with lots of peanut butter and or just peanuts. the flavor is a creamy blend of roasted malts, lots of chocolate and peanut butter...there is a mild sweetness from the malts but this predominately a solid porter with peanut butter and chocolate...for me its not quite full body but close...nice flavor real or artificial it zero’d in on it and nailed it...drink on

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark maple brown color, beige head, lace streaks. Strong aroma of peanut butter malt. Taste is malt, but sweet peanut butter actually is the winner here. It sweeps to the finish, where a little chocolate and light hops turn this into a drinkable Resse’s Peanut Butter Cup. Very distinct, but a little goes a long way.

Reviewing from notes from a July trip to Pittsburgh. This was a bomber, poured into a plastic Solo cup in a hotel room where there was no other glassware option aside from drinking right from the bottle. Appearance: Pours very dark, and forms a thick, frothy tan head that lasts for quite a long time. Smell: This smelled more or less like a Reese’s Cup in a glass, with some hints of beer malt around the edges of the mass of chocolate and peanut butter. Taste: Exactly as the nose, this was effectively like drinking an alcoholic Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. There were hints of some charred malt, but primarily a sweet blast of milk chocolate and peanut butter. Mouthfeel: Typical porter mouthfeel, light to medium-light in body. Overall: I rather enjoyed this beer, and will likely pick it up again should I ever run across somewhere in Cincinnati that carries it.
