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!

Nope. Nope nope nope. I see what they were trying to do there, but artificial flavors do not make a good beer at all. Ever. A punishingly over the top peanut butter character is not backed up even slightly by the "chocolate" malt backbone. This beer tasted rancid and fake and was terrible. I chalk it up there with Southern Tier’s Creme Brulee as a bad idea run amok. Terrible.

Bottle from Bethesda Food and Beverage. Dark black body with medium mocha head. Nose is sweet, peanuts, toasty and chocolate. Taste is also roasty, of malts, peanuts and butter. Quite creamy. Lots of chocolate and peanut butter in the finish.

Malty, roasty, peanut buttery, chocolatey. Not overly sweet, witha lot of flavor. This is a very nice beer.

Good flavor of chocolate and peanut butter. Definitely a dessert beer. I’m just not a big Porter fan

From NOTES: This is one of the Top 2 best peanut butter bears. This beer feels a little watery to me, but I almost feel like this flavor needs a thicker, stout-like mouthfeel. BY ANY MEASURE, this is a flavorful beer, albeit a gimmick beer.

12 Fl Oz bottle @ Virtue Feed Old Town Virginia. Pours a near opaque brown with a nearly non-existent head (though the server poured it very gently). Aroma was amazing...unsweetened chocolate and peanut oil. Taste was great as well...semi-sweet chocolate and peanut (but not sweet like peanut butter). Full body, mild bite on the tongue with a medium dry finish. Very unique and interesting beer. Would I want more than one...no but still super interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

SHIG (3982) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Bottle thanks to my father in law Dan: Poured a brown color with a tan head. Aroma is nice peanut butter. Taste was more of that peanut butter with strong robust malts and chocolate. This beer has that WOW factor.

Draft to taster pour opaque dark brown with moderate ecru head. Nose big peanut butter, light nut, sweet malt. Taste peanut butter, light roast. Minimal chemical. Lingering peanut butter finish.

12 oz. bottle. Gifted to me by a vacation buddy who lives in Maryland. Pours dark brown with a thin beige head. Peanut butter nose. Flavor is sweet, more chocolate than peanut butter. Body could be more substantial, but otherwise, very nice!

My first DuClaw brew. A relatively new brewery to the shelves around my area. Opaque pour to snifter with full fluffy, sand-colored head. Decadent nose of sweet cereal (like Cookie Crisp), toffee, condensed milk, very dessert-like smells. Caramel and cookie aromas amplify as it warms. Flavor is nice roasted malt base with milk chocolate, peanutbutter cookie, light vanilla and honey. A little pale on the palate and a bit light on the mouthfeel.This would taste truly sensational if brewed as an imperial. Looks like I got my sugar fix for the day!
