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!

Got as a gift from someone. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass

Appearance: Very dark black that looks more like a stout than a porter. A finger and a half of light brown frothy head that unfortunately disappeared fairly quickly.

Aroma: Chocolate cake, peanut butter cookies, roasted malt

Flavor: Just like the nose, the label says it all. Chocolate, nutty, some vanilla. Very Sweet and rich. A great dessert beer for sure.

Feel: Full body, incredibly smooth

I love being surprised by a beer that I thought wasn't going to be that good. I can't wait to get more of these.

Tried this one with trepidation, but was pleasantly surprised. It's a nice porter, thicker than most with a good, natural chocolate flavor. The peanut butter is there, but in hints rather than in your face. Well done.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Smells like peanut butter!! oh, and chocolate. very tempting.
Appearance- Pours a reddish brown with a small beige head.
Taste- beer with peanut butter and chocolate. Pretty good.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Has a thick texture.
Overall- A pretty good stout.

This is a really great porter for anyone who LOVES chocolate and peanut butter. The sweet, smooth chocolate flavor is to die for, then the rich distinct flavor of peanut butter kicks in on the aftertaste and finishes the chocolate off nicely. I only rate it below perfect because I personally, do not like the taste of peanut butter and chocolate. Delusional, I know..
