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.

After avoiding the last half-dozen or so Side Projects due to my lack of interest in their styles, I was so excited when I heard that this one, a peanut butter chocolate Porter, would be their next release. I picked up a bottle as soon as it hit my local shop. 22oz bottle poured into a snifter. Drank this one alone. Pours a deep dark impenetrable black with a thin beige head. I can hear this one fizzle and pop away, and before I know it, there isn’t a trace of lace left. Underwhelming nose - chocolate, dry husky grains, and a bit of molasses. I expected a bit more potency. After watching the frothy head dissipate so quickly, I thought this was going to be a bubbly mess. But really, this has such a pleasant creamy feel, and a perfect silky finish. They really nailed the mouth feel on this one. The flavor profile, unfortunately, also leaves me wanting. A good milky chocolate flavor starts this off, but sadly, also holds up the middle, and then closes it out. The PB presence, if any, is faintly noted in the aftertaste. I expected and wished for more PB flavor, but alas, I am let down. They really pulled off the chocolate part of the equation, but fell short on the PB part, which I think intrigued most people into buying this. I can get a chocolate-based Porter any day, so this really isn’t anything special. A decent beer, but it doesn’t deliver as advertised.

12 bottle with a BB date of Jan. 2015 notched on the label. Pours thick, opaque and near black. Weak head. Looks rich, and the aroma confimrs this, with the most nutty aroma I’ve ever run acoss in a liquid. Hints of chocolate and dark roasted malts too, which are much more apparent in the remarkable flavor. Still, more nutty than malty and more malty than chocolate. Excellent swee/bitter balance. O: "flavors never before so eloquently combined in a liquid or solid form."? ... maybe. Superb.

Bottle at home. Pours opaque black with a small, creamy tan head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is peanut butter, sweet milk chocolate, roast malt and dates. Flavor is sweet milk chocolate, peanut butter, dark roast malt, no hops, light bitterness and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

12 oz bottle courtesy of Mg228. Thanks Mark! The pour is a nice dark dark brown black with nice garnet hues popping through. There is a light film of light khaki head and no real lace. The aroma is straight up Reese's Puffs cereal. A light dried chocolate and good peanut butter backbone. It does seem a little light. The flavor is definitely light, but the flavors that are present mimic the nose, but are just a little lighter. The mouth feel is way thin, even for a porter. There isn't a whole lot of carbonation to help thicken it up, and the aftertaste is just quick and painless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great rich dark black color, decent lacing but the head dissipated rapidly (poured from a bottle). Sometimes you feel like a nut -- and hopefully you do right now, because this is all nut. Not even peanut -- more like a hazelnut flavor, very strong on the aroma, and I’m having a hard time tasting any chocolate. Not a bad offering, but not as good IMHO as Sweet Baby Jesus (the only other peanut and chocolate beer I"ve tried).

BelgianBeerGal (3196) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle from Tampa roadtrip. Nice looking, dark, brown pour with a nice brown head that lasts with good lacing. The aroma really is reminiscent of a Reese’s peanut butter cup. The flavor has more bitter baking chocolate and then finished with some roasted peanut dryness and a little espresso. Nice and this gets much better as it warms. I was tepid to it at first but like it as the flavors warmed.

Terrapin Liquid Bliss has a thick, tan head, a very dark brown appearance, with lighter brown showing as the light clips the edges, lots of roiling gray chunks, and almost no lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet malt, peanut butter, and some chocolate, but the flavor doesn’t really present this so much. In the taste I found an underlying peanut butter and chocolate, but not an overt presence. Mostly, it is dark malt, a sort of unpleasant bitterness, and no real sweetness. Alcohol is not picked up. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Terrapin Liquid Bliss finishes powdery and bitter. It is more like liquid disappointment. Certainly, not bliss. RJT

12oz bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Thick black pour, zero visibility with mostly lasting frothy khaki head. Excellent lacing. Aroma of Reese’s peanut butter cup and milk chocolate. As it warms the aroma of cooked peanuts comes out. Creamy malt chocolate taste up front with a light milk chocolate finish. Creamy texture left on the palate.

Nice combination of flavors that were very balanced unlike others tried. Soothing finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lukaduke (2185) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Pours a burnt umber color with two fingers of khaki foam. Lots of roasted cocoa, peanuts, some earthy complexity. Pretty one dimensional with a smooth chocolate backbone and lots of roasted peanut notes that are tasty but nothing too intriguing.
