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!

Shared by the Rhino.

The beer is brown with ruby highlights. Light tan hued head that measures about an inch. The aroma brings peanut butter, nuts, circus peanuts. Similar flavor with some earthy tones, subtle chocolate. Milk chocolate with peanuts in the finish. Pretty thin in body. Nutty flavors dominate a bit too much. Good in small doses.

Thanks to MillerBuffoon for letting me try one of these. This poured out as a very deep brown color with a brown head on top. The retention is thin, the lacing is scattered. The smell of this beer is loaded with roasted peanuts and dark malts. The taste of the beer is chocolatey with a really good peanut flavor in there too. The mouthfeel of the beer is smooth, kind of light bodied and smooth. Overall this beer was pretty good. It's more of a dessert beer but it's not overwhelmingly sweet. It's interesting though. I like it.

A-very dark brown with a thin light tan head

S-very chocolatey with a very evident hint of peanut butter. smells good, but almost artificial

T-comes in with an oddly tart and bitter flavor of cocoa malts. it tastes artificial and not exactly well done. matching after-taste with a weird hint of mint.

M-medium carbonation with a watery finish

O-i got so excited when i saw a peanut butter beer, but this was such a let down. the peanut butter was lost in the flavor, which doesn't matter because it was just a terrible porter either way. the flavors are all artificial and there's a lot of off flavor to it.

Enjoyed this on tap at Duclaw in Bowie, MD.

A: Pours a dark black hue with a thin 1-finger tan head that quickly dissipates into a thin wispy lace.

S: Sweet aroma – mostly consisting of chocolate and peanut butter as advertised.

T: Just like the aroma the flavor consists of peanut butter and chocolate. There are some coffee notes and finishes slightly sweet.

M: Thick body and minimal carbonation.

O: I enjoyed this brew – I wouldn't drink more than one in any sitting – but is a good brew.

A - A thin half finger's worth of light khaki colored head that is equal parts crisp and lush with a couple of big chunky bubbles mixed in... Minimal retention gives way a full but slightly uneven veil of lacing... The color is a deep dark brown... Lots of micro bubbled rapid paced carbonation swirling within...

S - The peanut notes are smack at the forefront... Roasted peanuts dominate the aroma throughout... Roasted malts... Some light chocolate notes...

T - The flavor follow the aroma identically... Roasted peanuts... Some dark bitter chocolate... A nice hint of roasted malts...

M - Medium bodied... Even and consistent... Clean and crisp... Limited carbonation...

D - Not my favorite, but I should have known better not being a fan of peanut butter in the first place... Interesting none the less... A true artistic expression from DuClaw...
