look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle poured into an Imperial pint glass.

A- Poured an oil slick dark brown color, near black. Opaque with visible carbonation. About a 1/2 F of dark mocha colored head thins out quickly. Some spotty lacing.

S- The first thing that came to mind after popping the cap was a squeeze bottle of that Hershey chocolate flavor syrup. Fortunately, that aroma was fleeting and the smell improved when poured into the glass: creamy peanut butter, rich chocolate, and roasted malt.

T- Chocolate-y peanut butter. Roasted malt with the mineral side-effect that I find common to other porters.

M- Thin and tingly. That's ok, it's a porter. Hop bite keeps the sweets in line.

O- Better than I thought it would be. Not too sweet, a big plus; chocolate and PB could've been a sugar bomb.

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.
