COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Peanut Butter Chocolate Porter dry-hopped with Georgia peanuts. Formerly a part of the Side Project series.
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.

Bottle. Peanut butter, toffee, and chocolate aroma - like a Butterfinger. Dark brown with minimal head. Lightly sweet peanut butter toffee and chocolate malt flavor. Good body. Very tasty.

Christpuncher (1951) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2015
This is decent porter, but the peanut bitter is just too overpowering. Really masks the roasted malts. Smells like peanut butter. Pours thick and black like motor oil ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap @ Pour. I liked a couple of other pb/choc ones better. Brown with thin head. Smells like dark fruits plus nuts. Taste is roasty and bitter. Not as chocolatey or nutty as promised, but not bad.

skmikeg (1325) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Pouts black with brown hues with a one finger tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is of peanut butter, chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, and sweet malts. Taste is about the same as the aroma with some nice peanut butter and chocolate notes. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a slightly bitter, semi dry, medium finish. Overall, a tasty porter that is’nt overly sweet like a lot of beer brewed with penut butter.

Like a dark chocolate peanut butter bar. Pours black with OK head. Light bitter, toasty finish. Ok but not my thing. Tap at pizzeria paradiso.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2015 Everything you would want from what it's name. It's fun to drink and doesn't leave me missing that full body flavor.

From a bottle into a plastic cup. The pour is a dark red with a white head. There is a strong peanut butter aroma with a chocolate peanut butter taste.

I don’t mind if a “novelty” beer becomes a trendy beer as long as it’s tasty. Terrapin’s Liquid Bliss is the second chocolate and peanut butter beer I’ve had in recent months and hopefully it won’t be the last. Though I can’t say it’s as good as the other beer I tried, it still works as a novelty brew that doesn’t grow old.

I poured a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass. It had an expiration date of 7/14/15 and was sent to me from a friend in Florida (thanks, Mike!).

Appearance: Seemingly opaque black with light brown highlights. Pours to an average size, dark tan, foamy head which laces and retains fairly well.

Smell: Almost identical to Reese’s Peanut Butter cups: chocolate and peanut butter candy. Some roasted malt.

Taste: This beer is a porter at the core and it certainly tastes as such. Up front there’s a lightly sweet sensation of dark malt, but without deeply roasted flavor or dry bitterness. I detect a mild milk chocolate flavor, but not overly sweet or of vanilla per se. The second half is the best part as the peanut butter flavor emerges and it tastes a lot like candy. It’s strong at first, but seems to weaken as I drink on. I also notice a faint tanginess right as it finishes. I’m not sure what’s accounting for that. Otherwise, the palette is rather repetitive, which is fine because the flavors present are enjoyable. Not quite the liquid indulgence I was hoping for, but a nice sweet beer that’s not cloying.

Drinkability: The first thing I noticed about Terrapin Liquid Bliss wasn’t the chocolate and peanut butter taste but the surprisingly thin and tepid mouthfeel. At 6.1% ABV, this should be approaching a full-bodied brew, but it comes across as medium-light. Perhaps it was brewed with lactose sugar, or maybe it’s a little under-carbonated. I will say that it’s smooth and very easy to throw back. It leaves no discernable aftertaste, though.
