Georgia, United States

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.10%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
We always love a good experimental brew here at Terrapin, but the salty-sweet combo of peanuts and chocolate has us all salivating a little more than usual. This brew, while smooth and mellow, still manages to challenge your tastebuds. The porter base is dark and smooth, with enough backbone to support the richer chocolate and peanut butter additions. It’s even dry “peanuted” with brewery-boiled green peanuts! Here’s to the candy-loving kid in all of us!

Really just smells like vomit, and has a bit of that flavor, too. I can't get into these PB beers, but this one takes the cake as just plain gross.

Personally, I feel that Duclaw's Sweet Baby Jesus is so much better than this. Look- opaque, slight dark tan rim. Smell- somewhat weak, bitter chocolate. Taste- bitter dark chocolate, don't get a ton of peanut butter here. It all tastes a little fake. Very malt forward. Little to no sweetness. Feel- not as creamy as I would have liked. My advice, go with Sweet Baby Jesus for a superior chocolate peanut butter stout.

Dark brown/black pour with a tan head.

Aroma is muted. Barely getting anything here, aside from the typical "porter" aromas. A vague maltiness -- maybe peanut butter I guess? Probably just the power of suggestion, frankly. The taste is not much better. This is barely distinguishable from any other porter -- the most subtle notes of peanut butter, and no real chocolate flavor. If you're not paying attention, and if the label didn't tell you to look for it, I'm not sure you'd even notice the peanut butter here. This is basically a run-of-the-mill porter, but with the tiniest bit of peanut butter. Mouthfeel is fairly thin, which compounds the disappointment (Thin taste AND thin mouthfeel? Boo, I say.).

Nothing special. As far as porters go, it's a fairly decent one -- maybe even good. But this wasn't supposed to be yet another garden-variety porter -- it was supposed to be a wonderful medley of peanut butter and chocolate. The label promised me so! But Liquid Bliss fails to deliver. If you want a porter, fine, go ahead I guess. But at $7.99 for 22 oz, there are many better options out there.

Peanut butter not very present. Chocolate tastes artificial for sure

First smell I get is cola. Peanut is weak, with a little chocolate.

Taste is also not very flavorful--we've been spoiled with some top notch PB stouts so you really have to bring it in this arena these days. Again it's like a cola with light peanut flavor, and a little raisin.
