Poured from a bomber into a Duvel tulip
A- pours a dark brown with a two finger dark tan head that quickly fades and leaves a thin layer across the top of the beer. Eh, the head was gone pretty fast...blah, but to be expected
S- a lot of peanuts come through in the nose...not peanut butter mind you, but peanuts, of the boiled variety. Not getting any chocolate to speak of. Eh....
T- as it warms, I get more of the chocolate than initially when it was cold...as for the peanut butter, it comes across more as a peanut taste than the sweetness you'd expect from the peanut butter. Not sure it delivers like I'd expect
M- medium bodied, on the thicker side.
O- not a bad beer, but I've had better chocolate peanut butter beers lately. This falls short.

"Melt into another dimension with Terrapin's newest Side Project... 'Liquid Bliss'. This chocolate, peanut-butter porter concoction flows like a river of self-indulgent righteousness deep into the depths of your innermost childhood memory. Turn on, tune in, and drop out of this world for a tongue tripping experience of flavors never before so eloquently combined in a liquid or solid form." Brewed in the style of an American Porter with Chocolate and peanut butter added. This is side project 18 in Terrapin's lineup, released as a one-time brew in November 2012 in 22 oz. bottles.
Poured from a 22 oz. bottle to a Terrapin snifter. Served north of 57º Fahrenheit.
(Appearance) Pours a mocha cream brown head of a creamy light consistency over a very dark brown body. No lacing, retention is average. 3.5
(Smell) Aromas of lightly roasted malt, mild toasted caramel malt, a hint of peanut brittle sweetness, a seemingly growing sourness arrives with warmth. A very simple and light aroma, but with a pleasant sweetness and a mellow but discernible peanut character. Potency is medium. 3.75
(Taste) Flavors of dry toasted malts, a mild fruit tartness, some rapidly faded peanut and a touch of. Flavor is very mild and a lot of the subtleties are diminished. Some cocoa character and a subtle malt body remains, but it's not thoroughly enjoyable nor unique. 3.5
(Mouthfeel) Texture is unusually slick, crisp and light for a porter as well as the flavors involved. The body is just shy of medium for a porter and medium overall. Finish is chalky, acidic and tart with a mellow dryness. Alcohol presence is light. The texture was quite lacking for the style and the flavors. 3.25
(Overall) This beer has long ago dropped off, even after 9 months, most of the peanut and chocolate flavor has diminished and the remaining body isn't substantial enough to carry this beer on its own. Expect an awkward growing tartness, a slick, thin texture and a powdery dry finish. I'd like to get to try this again when fresh, should we get that opportunity once again. 3.5
