Style: American Porter

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 only ever drink this out of the bottle (I know, I know), so hard to say much about look. The smell is one of the best parts about this beer, it gives a great cocoa and peanut butter note. My girlfriend hates it, but I find it great after a meal. As for taste, it's one of the better "dessert" beers I've had. As others have mentioned, it's almost too smooth, I'd like a little more fill mouth feel. Overall, this has become one of my favorite after meals beer. I can only drink it in the evenings after dinner, but that's where it belongs. Very solid beer!

Look: Dark
Smell: Chocolate, vague peanut butter,
Taste: mild chocolate flavor, dry finish, peanut butter flavor takes away from the chocolate notes
Feel: A little on the thin side
Overall: It's not bad. Had some cookies with it, not what I would call one of my desert brews.

12oz bottle poured into Belgian chalice glass
L - Nice black color
S - chocolate, malt, not peanut specific but general nutty aroma, roasted coffee of course, maybe some dark (pumpernickel?) bread
T - roasted malt, coffee, semi-sweet chocolate (not dark or milk), smooth peanut butter. Like 'whipped' peanut butter, not spoon-out-of-a-jar. Someone mentioned like the Fast Break candy bar: spot on. Especially the whipped peanut butter taste. Overall not overly done, but generally pleasing
F - Smooth. Maybe too 'smooth'. Wish it felt a little thicker, but still still nice.
O - Nice beer to drink before or after dinner. I can't imagine drinking this WITH food (other than popcorn at a bar).

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