Beer of the Week: Sweet Baby Jesus Peanut Butter Porter

Sweet Baby Jeses Chocolate Peanut Butter PorterSweet Baby Jesus Peanut Butter Porter (6.5% alcohol): This Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter from DuClaw Brewing Company in Maryland is probably the best porter I’ve ever tasted. It tasted like an adult milkshake. Sweet Baby Jesus pours clear, dark brown – almost black – with a caramel head that thins quickly. The nose immediately picks up a peanut butter aroma along with a bit of chocolate, roasted coffee beans and malt. Chocolate is at the forefront of the overall flavor. Sweet Baby Jesus reminded me of a chocolate milkshake with a scoop of peanut butter ice cream and a shot of espresso all blended together. Even though the peanut butter and chocolate flavor notes are easily definable, there is a subtle bitterness that balances out the sweetness. Also, the robust flavors masked the high ABV. If you can find this beer, I would highly recommend purchasing. You will not regret it! DuClaw was right on the mark with their tagline, “One taste of our chocolate and peanut butter porter will have you saying ‘Sweet Baby Jesus!’”
