COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First brewed in 2011, this Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter is jet black in color with a tan, rocky head, full body and creamy, luxurious mouthfeel. Its lightly sweet, malty flavor is accented by rich flavors of chocolate, coffee and peanut butter, and balanced by a subtle hop character and moderate 6.2% abv. Sweet Baby Jesus finishes smooth, dry, and roasty with lingering notes of chocolate and peanut butter so savory, you will exclaim its name!

ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2013
Rated 3/20/13. 12 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a dark burgundy color. The head is a three finger heavy cream shade. It looks to be very well carbonated judging how the bubbles from the body rise upward, as well. Nice streaks of lace are left on the glass. S: Well, they were talking about chocolate and peanut butter with this one...and golly gee, it smells of chocolate and peanut butter. Theres a definite vibe of roasted nuts here, and maybe just a hint of fruity esters. T: Personally, Id start off by saying that the chocolate used here rubs me the wrong way - and just now, I catch "porter with artificial flavors" on the label. Damnit. So does the rest of the flavor profile redeem the experience? Well...sort of. I really enjoy the nutty flavors of this (both from the malt and peanuts) on the finish in particular. Still, this could have been really something if the chemical off-notes were toned down. M: Thin and dry. It goes down superbly due to the weak body and higher carbonation, but in no way does it feel substantial. At least it scrubs away some of the poorer flavors represented here. O: There is a really sound porter here...but the chemical qualities really hurt the quality of the brew. It does taste like advertised, and I can see this one appealing to non-beer drinkers. As a gimmick, its likable enough where I dont really regret buying a six pack, but not to the point where Id buy it again.

GTAEgeek (2053) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2017
12 oz. bottle. Thanks, Ian! Black color, with a ruby tint and a big, bubbly, tan head. The aroma is roasted peanuts, baking chocolate, brown sugar, pine sap, and toffee. Sweet and malty, with a mild, unpleasant bitterness. Light to medium body, syrupy, and a little astringent. This is a fun and aromatic porter, but the long, bitter aftertaste is unfortunate.

Bottle poured dark brown with small beige head. Smell is peanut butter, chocolate and dark ass malt. Flavor predominately peanuts and peanut butter initially then take over by hop, cocoa and juicy alcohol. Tasty stuff.

ExpendableHero (889) - Florida, USA - DEC 15, 2016
Almost black beer with a brown head. Aromas of dark coffee and peanut butter. Tastes of dark chocolate, roasted coffee, burnt peanuts, and earth. Bittersweet finish. A bit cloying with an oily mouth feel. I thought this was tasty, but would have like more peanut butter here.

hayduke (5032) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured dark brown with a big tan head that left good lacing. Nose of burnt malts, chocolate, and a ton of peanut butter. Medium body. Flavor is very intense and the burnt malts and peanut butter go well together and the chocolate adds background. Finishes with citrus and lots of peanut butter plus nice bitterness. Nice beer.

Strykzone (6946) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2016
12 ounce bottle from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Very dark brown with caramel highlights. A big beige creamy head is four fingers. During the pour I smelled peanuts and rich dark malts. I taste peanuts and peanut skins. Malt milk balls under that. Citrus and hop bitterness, too. I dont really get any peanut butter but it is almost like drinking peanuts with those Malted Milk Balls.

S_Side_Smitty (744) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - DEC 10, 2016
Pours deep brown with a medium tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is really nice aroma of peanut butter and chocolate. Taste has a sharp bitterness initially then the peanut and chocolate flavors creep in. That bitterness hangs on throughout the palate all the way to the finish. Aroma is beautiful, but taste is off balance -- the sharp bitterness described as "a subtle hop character" throws me off. Overall, good.

Very pleasant notes of chocolate and peanutbutter - becomes a little one dimensional though. The taste notes would have been better suited for a stronger and thicker beer.

Great aroma of peanut butter and chocolate. Very impressive peanut butter aroma with a great chocolate finish. Taste is a full flavored smooth Porter with chocolate and peanut butter. Not overlly sweet and very flavorful and easy drinking. Not sweet and heavy. A very nice and different porter.

Mep3222 (1352) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - NOV 13, 2016
Aroma of peanut butter and chocolate. Pretty impressive peanut butter aroma with a dry cocoa chocolate. Taste is a full flavored smooth Porter with chocolate and peanut butter. Not sweet. Slight bitter cocoa finish. Flavorful but still easy drinking. Not sweet and heavy. I like it, different and unique but a nice Porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
