DuClaw Brewing Company
Maryland, United States

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

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!

Pours a good looking black with tan to khaki head. Smells like crunchy peanut butter with a hint of toasty malt following. Taste is crunchy peanut butter, almost expected some bits of peanuts to crunch on. Got some toasty malts following that and a dry finish. Feel is light to medium. Doesn’t taste the way it was described to me in the store,”recees peanut butter cup.” So a little let down but overall ok, great if you’re a big peanut butter person

I really enjoyed this beer! They mesh chocolate and peanut butter excellently! Smooth and strong and absurdly unique! Could only drink one at a time, but very enjoyable.

Overall very good, nothing above and beyond for a porter but you won’t be disappointed if you like porters.
