Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a dark brown-to-black coloring with a thin, sparse, light tan head. Steady flow of carbonation throughout the body, too. Aromas of fresh baked chocolate brownies, peanut bitter rich and sweet, roasted notes, and a subtle sugary highlight. Flavors are subtle roasted chocolate, bittersweet, with a peanut butter backbone that is richly sweet. Nice balance, with a hint of roasted coffee. Mid-bodied, slightly dry, and smooth in mouth. The aftertaste is a solid blend of chocolate and peanut butter, again both sweet and slightly dry. The finish is smooth, dry, and with a solid linger. Decent brew for the flavor profile, and fits the style well.

"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. Unlock your inner zen and delve into the Yin and Yang of two decadent flavors. Focus on the harmonic togetherness of chocolate and peanut butter as it takes you to a place that you never thought possible, a 'Liquid Bliss'." Brewed in the style of an American Porter with Chocolate and peanut butter added. Originally brewed as side project 18 in Terrapin's lineup, this one-time brew from November 2012 has been re-released as a year round available in 12 oz. 6 packs, replacing recently discontinued Tree Hugger.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a Terrapin snifter. Served north of 58º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a milk chocolatey brown head of a creamy froth consistency over a very dark brown body, near black. Retention is above average and lacing is light and spotty. 4

(Smell) Aromas of lightly roasted malt, mild toasted caramel malt, a wave of earthy, robust peanut butter with a nutty sweetness and a dash of cocoa nibs for complexity. The chocolate and peanut aspect are just about as easy to discern as one might imagine, very forward and in-your-face. Potency is high. 3.75

(Taste) Peanut notes are strong, generating an earthy sweetness, paired with a dry cocoa powder profile. Bready caramel aids in a thicker body. There is little to no hop character to compliment the profile of the peanut butter and chocolate. Finish is mildly dry with a subtle chalkiness. 3.75

(Mouthfeel) Texture is medium-full, chewy. Carbonation generates a soft frothiness for a creamy texture. The body is medium+ for a porter and medium+ overall. Balance is sweet over bitter. Alcohol presence is light. 3.75

(Overall) A very interesting and enjoyable porter, worth a try for anybody who takes an interest in peanuts and their potential role in beer. Best enjoyed fresh. 3.75

Smell is just like opening a jar of peanut butter. Pours a dark brown with very little head that is tan in color. Taste starts off with a very strong flavor of dark chocolate and only hints of peanut butter on the finish. However, as the beer warms, the peanut butter taste truly begins to shine. I recommend drinking this beer only slightly cooler than room temperature.
