Label: "malt beverage flavored with natural and artificial ingredients."
Well, at least they didn't use the word "beer" to describe it. When I want chocolate and peanut butter, I'd rather eat a Reese's Cup.

Pour is dark brown, almost black, with a tight tan head. Nose is heavy peanut butter with a touch of roast and a hint of milk chocolate. Not much malt presence but really a strong peanut butter flavor. Taste is heavy peanut butter like the nose but a stronger roast, a bit acidic and acrid, messier malt and a faint chocolate. Thick up front, body thins out in back, prickly and messier carbonation.

Ok porter, though the peanut butter/chocolate flavoring has an artificial, chemical taste to it.

pours a dark opaque brownish black with a tan head. Smells of roasty malts, chocolate, and slight peanut butter. Taste was roasty and toasty malts, chocolate powder, and no peanut butter to be found. I found this very disappointing. Feel was medium to heavy. Overall I found myself wanting more peanut butter while drinking, and there was none to be found.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle received as a gift from a non-BA member. Sampled on July 30, 2014.

OK, the label reads "Malt beverage brewed with natural and artificial flavors." Artificial flavors? An automatic turn off for me.

It is an attractive pour I will give it that with its dark brown color and modest little head that fades.

It smells like a malty Reeses Cup.

The body is also quite nice and well into the medium range.

The taste is also like a malty Reese's Cup with a mildly bitter finish. Oh well, 1800+ BA reviews. I can't like them all.

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.

Dark brown/black pour with a tan head.

Aroma is muted. Barely getting anything here, aside from the typical "porter" aromas. A vague maltiness -- maybe peanut butter I guess? Probably just the power of suggestion, frankly. The taste is not much better. This is barely distinguishable from any other porter -- the most subtle notes of peanut butter, and no real chocolate flavor. If you're not paying attention, and if the label didn't tell you to look for it, I'm not sure you'd even notice the peanut butter here. This is basically a run-of-the-mill porter, but with the tiniest bit of peanut butter. Mouthfeel is fairly thin, which compounds the disappointment (Thin taste AND thin mouthfeel? Boo, I say.).

Nothing special. As far as porters go, it's a fairly decent one -- maybe even good. But this wasn't supposed to be yet another garden-variety porter -- it was supposed to be a wonderful medley of peanut butter and chocolate. The label promised me so! But Liquid Bliss fails to deliver. If you want a porter, fine, go ahead I guess. But at $7.99 for 22 oz, there are many better options out there.
