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.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2014 Sweet chocolate, soil, and beets on the nose, I swear. Black, medium tan head with little retention. Mild tobacco flavor. Chocolate and peanut flavor is detectable but wouldn’t be if I hadn’t expected it to be there. Strong bittersweet chocolate and cocoa finish. Alcohol not evident, thin body. More chocolatey than billed, but that is a good thing.

Pours the color of coffee with a visibly light body and thin wispy tan head. Looks kind of flaccid. Nose is weird, like smelling peanut butter from far away after the oil has oxidized. Something in there you could probably call chocolate.... and maybe some dark fruit. Kind of muted on the nose. Flavor is not to my liking... old peanut butter on the finish. Some cacao maybe? Papery and thin with a watery finish/body. Man, ’Liquid Bliss’ may have been a reach in nomenclature here.

32 ounce growler from Greenville, poureda dark black color with a huge kahki head, aroamas of chocolate, light peanut butter, some toabacco, and light earth. Flavors are the same chocolaty earth up front with a dry peanutbutter roastiness in the back. Nice beer overall.

Bottle shared by jheath99. Pours deep, dark brown with creamy tan head. Aroma is chocolate, light roasted malts, peanut butter, light dates, and light earthiness. Flavor is dry, roast malts, chocolate, light peanuts, and light earthy hop bitterness; dry finish with some chocolate lingering. Medium body and carbonation.

maxwelldeux (4025) - 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...

Bomber from Sam’s, Durham. Is Peanut Butter the new coffee? The new mint or anise? Doubtful, but I enjoyed this one a fair bit. Substantial base porter came across well, with loads of chocolate in the nose and only understated nuttiness. This is a formula, echoed in the flavors, that works to the beer’s benefit since any more PB might have spoiled the balance (and indeed, what works for me appears to be already too much for others). Sweet, rich, and a vague saltiness in the finish that mostly appealed. I dug it but it may be one of those make or break beers.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2014 Updated August 2014 after this one did come out as a regular or seasonal or whatever. It is not the same beer that was 6.7%, because it’s now available in low abv (6.3 % and less) markets in TN and is much less tasty, but still pretty good. Original Side Project rating of 4.8: 650 ml. Opaque black with an eight inch of cream. Smooth rich nose of dark chocolate, earthy caramel and a touch of sweetened peanut butter. Taste is a little more earthy than the aroma indicated, but all the same flavors are there, plus some added vanilla, oak and dark fruit notes. Slightly sweet but balanced well by the roast and earthy flavors. Velvety smooth, medium body has a light tingle from a low-medium carbonation level, and is watery enough to keep from ever becoming sticky. This one should enter the regular rotation, or at the very least become a seasonal.

Another 12 oz. can purchased at The Beer Shoppe, Ardmore, PA. Deep ruby color that light will not penetrate, shows a fluffy thicker head that stays until the last drop of brew. Aroma is caramelized sugar, syrupy molasses and light roast.

Flavor is pretty much what it should be. Heavy on toffee, mild dark fruit with a toasted grain like body. The finish is real sweet with a light fruity note. Body is a bit thin and borderline cloying. Light taste of alcohol. For me it’s just ok.
