2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Vol 18. 22oz bottle, foil wrapped. Pours black. Smells of cocoa powder, hints of chopped peanuts. Tastes sweet, dark cocoa, loads of chocolate. Finished with the slightest hints of peanut butter. Flavor is just right. The notes are there! Body was a lot thinner than expected. Almost a watery texture. The flavors made up for light body. (3822)

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is sweet and chocolaty with peanut butter and chemicals. The appearance is dark brown with a small head. The taste is like the aroma with a mineral watery quality. The palate is thin. Overall this is disappointing but drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
