3.94/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12oz bottle given to me by one of my distributor sales managers. DuClaw isn't available in NJ, but he got it from their sister distributor in Philly. Poured the bottle into 4 sample cups to share with some of my employees to get their opinion as well.

AP: Naturally, I'm not going to get much of a head pouring 3oz into a sample cup. The colour was dark brown, like rich coffee beans or milk chocolate bars.
AR: Chocolate/cocoa, peanut butter roast, brown bread.
T: Chocolate in a cocoa or dark chocolate kind of way, Earthy hops, a hint of PB but not roasted like it smelled. The roasted malts get very prominent towards the end and on the finish. The aftertaste of dark chocolate and PB grows on you, it really lingers.
M: Medium body, thought it was a bit thin for a Porter, smooth on the palate with a dry finish and a touch of bitter hops.
OV: I think my employees liked it more than I did, but this beer grew on me with each sip. It's tasty, though I wish the body were a bit heavier. So DuClaw, why aren't you in NJ yet?

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass

A: Poured very black in color with a good fingers worth of head that settles to a thin layer, with wonderful lacing from start to finish.

S: Wow... Peanut butter right upfront, then chocolate, Roasted malts and coffee. Really smells good.

T: Taste is right on with the smell... Peanut butter and chocolate right upfront maybe a little milk mixed in... I'm getting coffee bitterness mid palette. The finish smooth with a hint of peanut butter.

M: Pretty smooth and creamy but oddly thin.

O: Wow... Very interesting brew.... Peanut butter... Really.... Fantastic mix of flavors.... Reese Cup beer. Only down fall was it felt a little thin, but this brew is really worth looking for.

Sweet Baby Jesus pours a black color, with a small lacing head. There is a strong peanut butter aroma. The has a strong peanut butter flavor, with hints of chocolates, tastes like a peanut butter cup. Nice and creamy, no overpowering flavors. Overall a nice creamy well put together beer.
