COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Peanut Butter Chocolate Porter dry-hopped with Georgia peanuts.
Melt into another dimension with Terrapin’s newest Side Project… “Liquid Bliss”. This chocolate, peanut-butter porter concoction flows like a river of self-indulgent righteousness deep into the depths of your innermost childhood memory. Turn on, tune in, and drop out of this world for a tongue tripping experience of flavors never before so eloquently combined in a liquid or solid form.

ben4321 (3759) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Sparrow-Downtown, 12/14/12

Aroma: Pretty much what I expected, chocolate malts and peanut butter (the chocolate is stronger)
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a small light brown head, that leaves light spotty lace
Flavor: The flavor is pretty much the same, chocolate, peanut butter, and a mild earthy bitterness
Palate: This one is fairly creamy, not chunky! (Yes, I know, I know, that was a terrible joke, but I just could not resist), this beer has a soft carbonation, and a smooth feeling medium-plus body to it
Overall Impression: As a fan of everything peanut butter and chocolate, I was extremely excited for this one, even though part of me was a bit skeptical as to how it would work in a beer. They proved my skepticism was unnecessary, as it really worked in a beer. Novelty? Absolutely? Novelty that works? Absolutely! Nothing else really needs to be said, obviously I’m a sucker for it.

Bomber from McScrooge’s. Peanut butter beer is a pretty strange concept, but the results were really not strange at all. This comes across like a sweet stout, enhanced with milk chocolate. If there is any nuttiness imparted by the use of peanut butter, it blends so well that it doesn’t really stand out. The malts are roasty and the palate is not as heavy as I would like for this kind of flavor. I’m glad it’s not too sweet, but just dessert-like enough to make it a treat.

PhillyCraft (3071) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2012
On tap at Barcade w/ Allen. Pours deep pitch black color with small but creamy beige head that dissipated quickly. Notes of vanilla, chalk, citrus, chocolate, malts, nuts and the peanut butter really came about as the glass warmed. Smooth as can be and drinkable for a porter. Very nice.

maxwelldeux (3452) - Everett, Washington, USA - DEC 11, 2012
Draught. Pours an extremely dark brown with a fairly small head on it. Nose was almost exactly like a chocolate peanut butter shake - amazing. Taste was much the same, and felt very smooth. Great beer...

Malty_MacHops (640) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - DEC 11, 2012
Very good. The nose is coffee and chocolate. Black with a small tan head. Sweet with some roast notes. Full bodied with a distinct smoothness. Not any peanut flavor, but a nice smooth quality.

Bomber bottle compliments of my neighbor Bob - Thanks! Weak and thin, very little taste of chocolate or peanut. Not worthy of the usually fine Side Projects Terrapin produces.

Split a 22oz bottle. Poured a dark brown, almost black color with a small brown head. Aroma was a touch of peanuts, peanut butter, chocolate. Flavor was some roasted peanuts, chocolate. Bought it for the novelty value, but it was a lot better than I had expected it would be. Very good.

22oz bomber from Spirits Crossroads. Poured a decent looking black thinner density body under a smaller foamy beige head. Aroma is great, really this smells like a peanut butter cup, loads of peanut butter and chocolate, lightly toasted English muffins. The body is far to thin for this beer and needs to be beefed up, average to light carbonation and a watery mouthfeel overall. Flavor starts off all chocolate and peanut butter, followed by toast, green veggies and candy. The flavor and aroma on this one make this the perfect desert beer.

Bottle. Appearance: black/brown with little tan head. Aroma: chocolate, peanuts and roasted malts. Taste: very chocolate and dried fruit porter like with finish of peanut butter and roastiness. Mouthfeel: really thin and little carbonation. Overall: one of the better Terrapin side projects. Wish it were a little thicker but is very well balanced with peanut butter and chocolate flavors (two of my favorite flavors together). Neither flavor is overwhelming and could even be a little stronger with both and be a little better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Have had this twice now and have liked it both times. I think they balanced the peanut butter, chocolate, and roasty porter flavors quite well. Never once was I off put by any overly sweet or artificial flavors. The body of the beer is a bit light for a typical Terrapin Side Project. I think everyone wants to compare this to an Imperial Stout but it simply isn’t that. This is a porter, admittedly a chocolate porter, but there isn’t anything imperial about it. Those who are complaining that the beer isn’t heavy enough are missing the point. They added opulent flavors to a beer in a delicate way with a great deal of finesse and success. This is quite drinkable. I’ll buy some more for myself. Well done.
