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.

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. .

uvajed (178) - Ravenna, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2015
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.

Poured black with a bubbly, quickly disappearing head. Aroma is cocoa and coffee. Taste is chocolate with a little bit of peanut butter. Bitter finish. Good porter. I wish the peanut butter was even more prominent.
