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!

One of the 3 best beers I've ever had. I'm a chocolate stout fan first and foremost. When I smelled the PB i was a little nervous, but it turned out awesome. If you're up for something different it's great.

12oz bottle from Nick_Bousquet (thanks man!). No apparent bottling information. Served in a Cigar City teku.

Pours dark brown with almost two fingers of sandy froth. The head fades to a modest halo and leaves a few small patches of lace.

As advertised, peanut butter and cocoa fill the aroma. Just popping the cap I caught a strong whiff of Reeces.

The taste isn't terribly complex but there is some pretty authentic chocolate peanut butter flavor. An unfortunate metallic tang drifts in and out but this is still a tasty, easy drinking porter.

Fairly thin body with appropriately average carbonation. That slight metallic note creeps in to join the cocoa and peanutty finish.

Based on several failed attempts I've had over the years I think peanut butter must be a tough flavor for beer but Sweet Baby Jesus is one of the two that I'd say did it right. It may not be perfect but it's worth a try, particularly if you like peanut butter in your porter.

Overall a great tasting beer. More light of a mouth feel than I wanted. The chocolate and peanut butter really come through.

Not traditional in any sense, but I love peanut butter and love the way it was incorporated in this beer. A rare adjunct to be handled well!

Not as much peanut butter taste as the Resurgence Peanut Butter Porter, but still a solid choice
