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?

Sweet Baby Jesus pours black into the glass with little to no foam. A small ring appears around the surface. No lace on the glass.
The aroma is sweet and candy like. Caramel and peanut butter dominate. Some dark chocolate is mixed in.
Each sip of this medium bodied beer is oily and soft with mild carbonation. The flavor is like a candy bar. Caramel and peanut butter blended with chocolate. It finishes dry and somewhat bitter with a hint of grass. Once gone the caramel and peanut butter lingers on the palate.
This is a beer best left for dessert. It tastes like a caramel peanut butter brownie. The peanut butter doesn't seem genuine. It's more like a powdered additive you'd put in pudding. Still, it's definitely interesting. Would go great with a chocolate cake.
