Notes / Commercial Description:
First brewed in 2011, this Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter is jet black in color with a tan, rocky head, full body and creamy, luxurious mouthfeel. Its lightly sweet, malty flavor is accented by rich flavors of chocolate, coffee and peanut butter, and balanced by a subtle hop character and moderate 6.5% abv. Sweet Baby Jesus finishes smooth, dry, and roasty with lingering notes of chocolate and peanut butter so savory, you will exclaim its name!

I wouldn't drink it with a meal. It's more of a beer you sip after.

I paired this beer with s’mores I made with Reese’s and peanut butter fudge, it was so good. I started the beer at the end of a chili cheese dog, don’t recommend that.

12 oz bottle into snifter. Really charming silky dark black pour with a thin beige-brown ring in the snifter.

So far on the nose i'm just getting a little roast malts and nuttiness, very faint semi-sweetness that could be construed as peanut butter.

Roast malts dominate the palate with an almost coffee-like essence, but in the background is a really nice genuine peanut butter flavor that's semi-sweet but mostly nutty. Semi-sweet melted chocolate forms on the back palate. It reminds me of a Reese's Fast Break with the sourness of beer. Chocolate, whipped peanut butter, coffee, and piney hop bitterness fade out.

Feel is roasty, with a nice level of carbonation that keeps it on track. Medium body. Roasty finish.

Overall not quite as good as I'd hoped, but still glad I bought the 6 pack. It's decent, worth a shot. Still not as good as our local Empyrean Long Route!

This beer tastes great with a predominant peanut butter taste but a nice mix of chocolate.

I'm a IPA fan but one taste and smell of this blew my mind. Can definitely taste and smell the chocolate and peanut butter.

Pours a dark brown, on the edge of black, with a tan head that has gravitas. The nose is a little chocolate and char and a TON of peanut butter .

The peanut butter is prominent on the taste, with some chocolate and a surprising stone fruit component that is a bit of a miss. I wish the chocolate played a bigger role in this beer, because I think it would be world-class if it did.
