From DuClaw Brewing out of Baltimore Maryland comes their “Sweet Baby Jesus!” a chocolate peanut butter porter. The beer pours a deep black colour with a brown head. The aroma consists of peanuts, chocolate, caramel and a creamy finish. The flavour is of roasted malts, peanut butter, chocolate, caramel, earth and burnt coffee. The beer comes in at 6.2% alcohol with an IBU of 33. I do not like peanut butter cups so I was a bit trepidatious about this beer but it was unwarranted as this was awesome.
