Pitch black nice mocha tan head, forms evenly across the sides of my chalice, Big peanut butter nose, dark roasted malt provides chocolate, this is good stuff...dessert in a beer. Flavor brings more peanut butter notes with dark chocolate better than Sweet Baby Jesus, roasted malt and the peanut butter flavor mesh so well this is a treat. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied not something I could drink in number but it's oh so tasty on the palate. Overall the type of dark beer I wanna get to know again and again, great stuff from Athens, GA!!!

A - obsidian black with a thin caramel colored head, a little retention, and a small amount of lacing.
S - smells a lot like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup
T - taste is a little bit of caramel malt with a hint of roastiness. I do get some chocolate and some coffee,
but the peanut flavor is kind of repressed.
M - thin with average carbonation and a slight aftertaste
O - a good beer, but it seems to fall a little short of what might have been intended.

I picked up mixed brewery hand-picked variety pack at the Lawrenceville NJ Joe Canal’s. Among the beers was this Terrapin Liquid Bliss Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter 12-ounce bottle, which I poured into my Duvel Belgian Tulip glass for tasting purposes.
A: A semi-aggressive pour yielded a 1/2” beige head that quickly shrunk to a thin ring. This beer is dark drown with just a hint of light coming through my glass when held up in the air. Lacing tried its best to cling, but to no avail.
S: The aroma was that of sweet malt, chocolate, vanilla and a hint of oats. I didn’t catch any peanut butter though, which I was anticipating. After letting the beer sit for a few minutes and swirling the glass a few times, the chocolate aroma become more prevalent. I do catch just a hint of peanut butter, but it quickly goes away.
T: The malty dark chocolate bitterness starts if off. Weird, I really don’t get the peanut butter taste like I did when I had the Duclaw Sweet Baby Jesus. I’ll be honest, I was really looking forward to having the chocolate peanut butter mix with each sip, but I don’t get it at all. Still it’s a pretty darn good “chocolate” porter. Vanilla caramel also comes to mind in the middle, but finishes dry and slightly bitter.
M: The carbonation is spot on, but I thought it was rather thin for a porter. The finish is clean and smooth. What remains on the tongue is a burnt taste, similar to what I get when I drink coffee. Not in a bad way though. The ABV was perfect. Not too high, not too low.
O: A pretty solid porter that I would buy and drink again. I really do like the Terrapin beers, especially the Moo Hoo and Wake “N” Bake. They are by far my two favorites from this brewery. With that said, I would have enjoyed this more with an additional peanut butter flavor. The chocolate was dominant and the peanut butter really just took a back seat.

Sampled from a 12oz bottle purchased at Tasty Beverage in Raleigh, NC. Best by Jan 2015.
A - Deep black with a big tan head. Looks awesome!
S - Nutter butter cookies.
T - Chocolate malt balls and peanut butter cookies. A slight roastiness and bitterness in the finish.
M - Moderate consistency if not a little thin. A moderate carbonation of very fine bubbles.
O - Interesting and worth a try but not something I'd likely drink again.
