3.5/5 rDev -7.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A: Pours out brown in color with a finger or so of cream colored head. The head sticks around for a while, but doesn't lace all that much. The beer pours out pretty clear, but hardly any light gets through the liquid in the glass. 3.5
S: The aroma is all peanut butter right up front, but once you can get beyond that the nostril is greeted by very sweet chocolate, not unlike a milk stout, and vanilla. Very sweet to curb the dryness of the peanuts. 3.5
T: The peanuts don't assault the palate on the taste like I anticipated. They're more a saving grace for what otherwise would be an absurdly sweet porter. Peanut butter starts us off, dry and salty, with the chocolate and vanilla coming second and carrying you to the end. The balance is quite nice, however. Blending the chocolate and peanut butter (a match made in heaven) in a way that I quite enjoy. 4
MF: A bit thinner than I prefer, with a lower than average carbonation. The finish is very dry, but I like it. I found the beer to be very drinkable despite its sweetness. 3.5
O: This was good, but not my favorite peanut butter beer out there. I actually want more peanut butter in this one. Great beer, won't have an issue putting down a 6er. 3.5

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.
