Beer Wednesday – Sweet Baby Jesus!

Happy Beer Wednesday!

What are you two favorite sweet flavors?

Wait, what are the two dessert flavors that go together so well, that they’ve launched an empire of candy?

That’s right, chocolate and peanut butter. From Reece’s (ick), to Justin’s peanut butter cups, to Cleo’s peanut butter cups, there’s no shortage of combinations of chocolate and peanut butter.

“But, what,” you ask,” does any of this dessert talk have to do with beer?”

Ahh, the tagline on DuClaw’s most ridiculous porter is “One taste of our chocolate and peanut butter porter will have you saying ‘Sweet Baby Jesus!'”

Yup, This Maryland-based brew-pub released a porter made of my three favorite things: chocolate, peanut butter, and beer.
Sweet baby Jesus, Sweet jesus, porter, chocolate peanut butter porter, chocolate peanut butter beer, duclaw, Du Claw, Maryland porter, maryland beer, baltimore beer, baltimore porter, chocolate porter, peanut butter porter, chocolate beer, peanut butter beer,

The porter itself was very good. Amazing? No, but very good. The head was, as you can see, copious, and the color was the rich deep dark ruddy brown that you want in a porter. I thought the mouth-feel was a little thin, and I would have liked to taste more of the chocolate in it. The peanut butter flavor really shone through, and that was good, but maybe just the tiniest bit odd also. I mean, when was the last time you drank a beer and thought “You know what would go perfectly with this? A peanut butter sandwich.”

Mind you, that doesn’t mean that the beer isn’t good. It is. Very good. Don’t misunderstand me. I would have liked a bit more alcohol (It’s only 6.5% ABV) and a little bit more chocolate to balance the peanut butter flavor.

Overall, I’d give it a 4/5. It’s close, very close, to being exceptional, but just off.
