  • Pours opaque with a quarter inch of tan foam. Feeble retention. Lacing nonexistent.

    Aroma has hints of chocolate hidden behind a spoonful of peanut butter. Fake/artificial aromas?

    The taste continues but with a better balance between chocolate and peanut butter. Both taste as if they came from an extract bottle. Roast, dry finish.

    Light end of medium body is a stretch. Big carbonation aids in creating that faux body.

    The good part of the beer is the aroma before you realize that it is forced and artificial. Not much about this beer feels real. This is very tough to stomach more than a few sips. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • 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 6.2% abv. Sweet Baby Jesus finishes smooth, dry, and roasty with lingering notes of chocolate and peanut butter so savory, you will exclaim its name! - See more at: https://duclaw.com/beer/sweet-baby-jesus/#sthash.d5mKdVbS.dpuf
