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!

Surprised I had not had this before, so thanks to rudzud for sharing.

Pours a light fizzy tan head that fades fairly quickly, darker brown color with plenty of dirty light sneaking though.

Nose brings lots if peanut butter, a dried old earthy grainy Peanut butter, starts to get an earthy peanut shell, quite nutty, grainy doughy.

Taste brings more Peanutbutter, nutty, earthy peanuts, caramel, mild bitterness, little grainy malt, doughy, little earthy hop on the back end. Finish is mild earthy spicy hop bitterness, little grainy malt, plenty more peanut butter lingering.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb.

Overall ok, plenty of peanut butter, not much left for porter though, but enjoyable and fun.

Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a clear dark brown with a thin quarter inch head That fades to leave thin head and light wisps.

S - Aromas of nice peanut butter, super faint chocolate, smells like a reeses peanut butter cup, quite pleasant.

T - Taste is sweet malts, poor quality chocolate, sweet, peanut butter isn't bad, not the best but it is pleasant. Not a lot of porter notes but still quite tasty.
