Poured a dark brown, near black; seemed cloudy. Two finger head that subsided somewhat quickly. Tasted of toasted grain and roasted peanut shells, nose was distinct peanut butter and some bittersweet chocolate and cold coffee. Pretty good beer, but I feel I wouldn't session this porter at all. Wouldn't most porters, but this is a pretty unique experience meant to be had once in a while. Woul recommend!

LOOK: Poured a dark brown bordering black color. Off white head.

SMELL: Smell of chocolate and peanut butter. A bit of coffee and vanilla around the edges,

TASTE: Peanut flavor, a bit of cocoa and char. Slight twang but not too bad. Would certainly suffice if you're into the chocolate, peanut butter porter thing.

FEEL: Full bodied well carbonated.

OVERALL: Very tasty peanut butter ale. A niche beer, and definitely not for everyone, but certainly good for what it is.

Gimmicky, sure—but quite successfully so. Soft, airy mouthfeel, good dark-burn bitter porter notes, mild sweetness, and a potent Reese's aroma that luckily gives way to a more moderated, much cleaner peanut-butter-cup quality at the beer's heart. All of that is washed away nicely by mellow hop bittering and dry malt tones. If you're going gimmick, points are deserved for executing it with reasonable aplomb—and I'd say Liquid Bliss is deserving of such points, even if candied-up dark beers aren't in my personal wheelhouse.

Enjoyed this at Cafe Craft in North Charleston, SC. Split the last remaining bottle in the joint with a friend. Poured in to a pint glass with a near black appearance and a thin coating of tan foam. Visible bursts of carbonation in the glass, like a cola. Obvious aroma of earthy whole peanuts, dirty shell and all. A little milk chocolate in the nose creates a nutty buddy appeal. Ok, now for the first sip... Roasted peanuts in the front with a tangy bitterness in the back. Mildly sweet chocolate undercurrent pulls it together. The aftertaste is like a freshly chewed mouthful of dry roasted peanuts with a lingering bitter dark chocolate wafer. The mouthfeel is a little thin, partially masked by aggressive carbonation. Overall, Terrapin has succeeded in creating a remarkable likeness to Little Debbie Nutty Bars. Perhaps not as sweet, but in the context of a beer it's tremendous. This one is lacking the silky, creamy texture or richness of my favorite porters but for what it is, it's great nonetheless. Hopefully they reign in the carbonation a little and add some depth to the body. If so, this could become a favorite of mine. That said, I'm a sucker for chocolate and peanut butter. Thank you to my own nutty buddy that let me split his beer.

Great taste. I could tate a chocolate peanut butter flavor instantly. Nice colors and smell. Draft style. Law old live to try from bottle.

Peanut butter not very present. Chocolate tastes artificial for sure

Love at first taste. Puts "Sweet Baby Jesus" into second place by a long way!

smell the peanut and the chocolate. light caramel taste, peanut in the middle and cocoa nib aftertaste. overall a solid porter that is very light on the caramel, peanut, and chocolate.

Finally! I have stumbled upon a peanut butter beer. This ``chocolate peanut butter porter'' was poured from a bottle into a Bell's tulip. The beer pours out extremely dark with little light escaping and sports a two-finger tan head that is quite well sustained. I definitely smell peanuts on the nose and I really dig it. I'm not getting much in the way of chocolate, but the peanuts really come through. Faint roasty notes and a whiff of malt are also present.

Medium body with a firm feel. Toasted malt greets you first and then roasted peanuts come through quite assertively. Some mild chocolatey sweetness joins in, then at mid-palate a woody-tasting hop bill crashes the party and reminds you this is a porter. The finish is roasty and slightly bitter and some of the peanuts linger behind.

Overall not a bad porter, but it lacks the richness of flavor exhibited by the top-shelf American porters. Perhaps the peanut butter tends to dominate the flavor a bit and would best be restricted to imperial examples which have an abundance of malt to compensate for it. This was my first peanut butter beer and I can definitely see the promise.
