COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First brewed in 2011, this Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter is jet black in color with a tan, rocky head, full body and creamy, luxurious mouthfeel. Its lightly sweet, malty flavor is accented by rich flavors of chocolate, coffee and peanut butter, and balanced by a subtle hop character and moderate 6.2% abv. Sweet Baby Jesus finishes smooth, dry, and roasty with lingering notes of chocolate and peanut butter so savory, you will exclaim its 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.

Sweet Baby Jesus was really not a bad beer I was really surprised about the flavor after reading the label. Tasted great when it was hot outside, try it if you like peanut butter.

Gerbeer (2976) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2016
12 oz bottle. Pours a very dark clear brown with moderate off white head. Aromas of rich dark peanut butter, heavy on the nuts, with some roasted malts hanging around in the background. Flavors of a snickers bar with lots of dry roasted malts. Subtle hops - only in the imagination... A bit in your face and gimmicky - but OK. I certainly would not have more than one at a sitting...

Sample at the BJCP reception last week at HomeBrewCon. Deep brownish black with a decent tan head. Huge chocolatey peanut butter on the nose and flavor. Smooth creamy like a Reese’s Peanut butter cup in a glass.

Draft is much better than bottle, also age is not good to sweet baby. The fresher the better

Didn’t realize this was a peanut butter brew when I grabbed, I like peanut butter but just in a drink kind of weirds me out. Fne dark brown pour with beige head. Nose is peanut butter and chocolate. Tastes much ofmthe same but touch sweeter. Oily Palate. Finish is buttery peanuts.

Bottle courtesy of McBeer. Completely opaque black body. Thin off white ring. Nice peanut aspect. This beer has been sitting for awhile (at least a year) and it has maintained good carbonation. Excellent.

Draft at local Buffalo Wild Wings. Pours black with an inch of khaki foam. Big peanut notes on the nose with some solid chocolate notes as well. Huge peanut notes on the tongue as well along with some roasty malt notes. Finished clean. I've not been a big DuClaw fan but this one's pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
