Sweet Baby Jesus! is an American Porter that’s brewed by DuClaw Brewing Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a mug from a 12 oz. bottle.
The ale pours an opaque black and is topped by a thin, cream-colored head that reduces slowly. Tiny dots of lacing are left behind.
The aroma is pleasant with a scent of peanuts, chocolate, and coffee.
The palate follows the nose and is led by bitter coffee and backed by a mild taste of peanut butter and chocolate. The finish is a touch boozy.
The feel has a smooth draw with a medium-full body and low carbonation. Its finish is dry and warm from the alcohol.
The aroma is the real star of this brew as it’s really enticing. Unfortunately, its palate doesn’t quite rise to meet those lofty expectations. Sweet Baby Jesus is an adequate representation of the style.
