A great flavored Porter. Color os extremely dark and head is nice and foamy off-white. Aroma is of malt and a cocoa-coffee blend. Taste is amazing with hints of toasted chocolate, penut butter, sweet malt, etc. The balance is great, as is the carbonation. The peanut butter flavor is just enough to add to the flavor without overpowering. Awesome !!

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

A: Pours an opaque yet clear extremely dark brown in color (almost black) with light amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and some moderate amounts of coal brown + amber highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy tan head that reduces to medium to large sized patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of roasted malts, dark malts, cocoa, and a light aroma of peanut butter (more like a chocolate peanut version of Nutella).

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of dark malts with a lighter flavor of roasted malts. That is followed by a slightly sweet chocolate/cocoa peanut butter (similar to Nutella). Light amounts of bitterness in the finish which fades quickly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly slick.

O: 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.

12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a clear, very dark brown body with a few glimmers of ruby when it catches the light. Modestly-sized, light beige head.

Smell: Dark maltiness, hints of sweetish chocolate, caramel and gentle roast mingled with the butter whats made of peanuts. Thin sliver of dark fruitiness.

Taste: Chocolate laced dark malts with the growing peanut butter flavor surrounding it like a German death squad. Hints of black olive, dark fruit. Rise of blonde caramel. Minimal hop character and bitterness. Semi-dry finish, soft in feel, with lingering flavors of peanuts.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Agreeably sleek mouthfeel.

Overall: Better than anticipated! Admittedly, while I don't have any particular beef with p-butter, I've never really reveled in it. As a kid, I ducked PBJ sandwiches and would readily trade away Reese's Peanut Butter Cups come Halloween.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Deep brown black with a nice tan head.

S: Peanut butter goodness and a nice light chocolate aroma. I don't get a whole lot of the porter aroma in the background though.

T: Light peanut butter, the chocolate is fairly subdued, as is the malt. I was really hoping for something a little more rich and flavorful, and while it is certainly good it registers fairly low on the flavor meter.

F: Medium light in body, with a fairly high level of carbonation

O: Overall it's a pretty good beer, but when you put chocolate and peanut butter on the label, you better deliver.

The beer comes in a dark black color.

The aroma explodes of sweet peanut butter/nutter butter cookie. A light porter roasted malt in the back.

The flavor is quite different with an upfront light roasted malt and chocolate. A hint of peanut butter comes through as the beer then bitters out with some cocoa.

This is basically a well made porter with a peanut butter aroma, but not really in the flavor.

Terrapin Liquid Bliss has a thick, tan head, a very dark brown appearance, with lighter brown showing as the light clips the edges, lots of roiling gray chunks, and almost no lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet malt, peanut butter, and some chocolate, but the flavor doesn’t really present this so much. In the taste I found an underlying peanut butter and chocolate, but not an overt presence. Mostly, it is dark malt, a sort of unpleasant bitterness, and no real sweetness. Alcohol is not picked up. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Terrapin Liquid Bliss finishes powdery and bitter. It is more like liquid disappointment. Certainly, not bliss.

A: Very dark brown with a small cream colored head.

S: Roasted and dark malts with a hint of chocolate. A faint peanut scent as it warms.

T: Starts with roasty flavors upfront that quickly fades to chocolate and peanut butter. Almost like Reese's Puffs light.

M: Would like it to be a little stickier and last longer given the style but the flavors stay just long enough.

O: Pleasantly surprised with this one!

Poured into a snifter

A: Blackish with burgundy highlights. A tan half finger head that dissipates fast. Not much lacing.

S: Nutty, chocolate-y.

T: Semi-sweet chocolate mixes with peanut butter with a dark chocolate finish.

M: Medium with medium carbonation. A bit watery.

O: Not as Blissful as I was hoping for. The chocolate was confusing as it melded with the peanut butter. I think I prefer just the peanut butter.
