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!

Delicious, pours a nice dark black. Minimal head on my pour. The nose is a nice peanut-buttery chocolate smell, with more of a faint chocolate taste in the back of the mouth after drinking. It's smooth. Thin feeling when drinking. Really enjoyable.

Bottle shared at the monthly bottle share held at Flask Fine Wines in Studio City, CA.

Pours a murky dark orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, chocolate syrup, and peanut butter aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa powder and peanut butter flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a high level of carbonation with a crisp and prickly mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a great chocolate peanut butter aroma, but the flavors are muddled and the carbonation level is too high in my opinion.

Serving type: bottle.
