Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass.

Appearance: Entirely opaque dark brown liquid with a thin off-white head, exactly what this style should be.

Aroma: I was skeptical of if this beer would live up to its name but the aroma IS actual bliss. This smells exactly like chocolate peanut butter, with some rich roastiness. I'd almost rather just smell it than drink it.

Taste: Much more rich roasted malts in the taste than in the nose. The chocolate peanut butter is somewhat in the background. I actually wish these flavours were more in the forefront, but I do have to congratulate Terrapin for not making them be so strong that all that can be tasted is cheap syrups and artifical flavouring.

Mouthfeel: Little carbonation, little viscosity. It could be a little thin at times, but it is not really noticeable.

Overall: This is an interesting beer, that manages to meld a fantastic aroma and an acceptable beer. It's worth it once just for the smell alone. Definite recommendation to fans of porters or Reese's.

A slightly toned down version of DuClaw's Sweet Baby Jesus. Totally weird, drinkable and delicious.

Pitch black with a tan head that faded quick but left behind some lacing. Milk chocolate and peanuts, very peanut butter cup like aroma which surprised me in a good way. Little roast and smoke in the aroma as it warmed. Taste is sweeter up front bringing a milk chocolate quality, peanut, slight char and roast. Start sweet and bitters up a touch at the end. Creamy feel but a bit more body would be welcomed here. Overall I thought this was decent. I've never really had a beer from this company I liked but I'd consider this the first.

Had it on tap at the Shepherd & Knucklehead, which is both a bar and a steakhouse. My sister, who ahs never had a beer before in her life, went to smell this offering which was served in a pint glass; and even behind the bitterness of beer which intimidates most people, she swore it smells of peanuts. An absolutely lovely nose.

The taste is similar, but seems creamy. Somehow it reminds me of something else; possibly some kind of old candy. But in any case it's very sweet and very pleasant; primarily peanuts, secondarily milk chocolate. A liquid dessert. It lives up to its name.

This will become a staple in my liquor cabinet.

Dark and opaque with a fleeting cream colored head that yielded great lacing and just a little fizz about the top. Nose is immediately chocolate that fades into a more malty design. Taste is similar to the nose as it hits quick with chocolate but slowly fades to a more bitter offering that loses most of the sweetness but never really loses the chocolate. Like bitter dark chocolate. Not too much peanut butter, if any at all that I can detect. Finishes quite bitter but oddly, unlike the travels of the taste, it finishes with a cloying sweetness. Thin, slightly crisp. Taste is not bad at all, but lacks a little depth in the body.

Personally, I feel that Duclaw's Sweet Baby Jesus is so much better than this. Look- opaque, slight dark tan rim. Smell- somewhat weak, bitter chocolate. Taste- bitter dark chocolate, don't get a ton of peanut butter here. It all tastes a little fake. Very malt forward. Little to no sweetness. Feel- not as creamy as I would have liked. My advice, go with Sweet Baby Jesus for a superior chocolate peanut butter stout.

pours black with a off white head. good retention and lacing.

the nose is dominated by peanut butter with a bit of roasted maltiness. taste is much lighter on the peanut butter than the nose - a nice subtle blend. subtle notes of chocolate and roasted malt as well

Pours out dark brown, almost black, with a thin frothed off-white head. Smells of Reese's peanut butter cups, peanut butter M&Ms and Butterfinger. Tastes more beer-like than the smell lead me to believe. Nice lightly toasted and roasted malt base highlighted by big nuttiness and complimentary chocolate. I get some tahini as well. Medium body with subdued carbonation. This is a perfect beer for someone who loves chocolate and peanut butter. Delicious.

Terrapin "Liquid Bliss Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter"
12 oz. brown glass bottle, "3.1.2015 14323.324"

Well it looks like I'm just under the wire for the "BEST IF ENJOYED BY" date on this one. I don't notice any oxidation or find any flaws.

I'm surprised that this beer has so many negative reviews, and so many very good reviews. It must be the "style", or perhaps a misunderstanding of what it is. Regardless, it must have done well enough that Terrapin took it from one of their "Side Project" beers into full time production.

Personally I think this is one of the best peanut butter beers on the market (although it actually uses a peanut extract). There's enough PB that you get it clearly in the nose, and clearly in the flavor, but then it becomes just another component (nutty) as the chocolatey malt steps forward. So perhaps it's too sweet for some, and I could agree with that if it was a standard porter, or maybe even just a "chocolate porter", but as a "chocolate peanut butter porter" you kind of have to expect that it's a little sweet. And yet it's not quite a full-on dessert beer - you can drink one of these and not find it cloying. So I guess it's one of those beers that you either like or don't like because you can't really argue that it's not to style. If you found a defect, that would be one thing, but as it's currently designated, as long as it roughly fits into the "porter" guidelines... "all's fair in love and war".

Really just smells like vomit, and has a bit of that flavor, too. I can't get into these PB beers, but this one takes the cake as just plain gross.

Solid sweetness. Had as a dessert beer. 12 oz bottle poured into a stemmed glass. Enjoy by date of 4-22-15. Chocolate-y with some peanut butter in the finish.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a unique aroma of cocoa, peanut butter and malts, nice.
Appearance- Damn near black in color and has a small tannish head.
Taste- A taste of malt with a chocolate backdrop. This is surprisingly good.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with a moderate of carbonation. Slightly oily texture.
Overall- Definitely one of the better chocolate/peanut butter porters/stouts that I have tried, I have had a couple of other beers similar in style but this is one of the more successful - a nice combination of flavors without a lot of associated sweetness. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this one.

Is anybody else seeing loads of what appears to be peanut butter sediment floating in this? I may have to re-rate.
