Brewed by:
DuClaw Brewing Company
Maryland, United States

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Rotating

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!

In general, I always think peanut butter chocolate porters sound and smell better than how they taste, or maybe I haven't found the right one yet, because I had higher expectations (especially from friends who had this beer before me). It was a good beer, but on the lower end of the porters on my list.

A = Deep dark brown (seems black until you hold to the light) with a nice light brown head. Good lacing, but only a moderate head.

S = The peanut butter is dominant, followed by a nice chocolate aroma

T = More of a roasted coffee taste with some underlying chocolate. The peanut butter taste is nowhere near as obvious as it is in the aroma.

M = This is where I was disappointed. I really expected this beer to have a much thicker feel to it, but it is quite watery.

O = A nice beer. Something different. If they could figure out how to make it a bit thicker and get the peanut butter taste to be as prevalent as it smells they'd have a real winner.

Had this on tap in Va. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is there's so much peanut butter, I can't drink it all day long. Otherwise, excellent beer.
