Liquid Bliss Porter brewed by Terrapin Beer Company in Athens, GA


Liquid Bliss Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter is brewed by Terrapin Beer Company in Athens, Georgia
Brewmaster Spike Buckowski always loves a good experimental brew here at Terrapin, but the salty-sweet combo of peanuts and chocolate has us all salivating a little more than usual. This brew, while smooth and mellow, still manages to challenge your tastebuds. The porter base is dark and smooth, with enough backbone to support the richer chocolate and peanut butter additions. It’s even dry “peanuted” with brewery-boiled green peanuts! Here’s to the candy-loving kid in all of us! ABV: 6.7%. IBU: 23.

Ingredients:
Hops: US Golding
Malts: 2-Row Pale, Wheat, Crystal 85, Crystal 120, Chocolate Wheat, Chocolate Malt, Black Malt
Other: Peanut Butter, Boiled GA Peanuts, Olive & Sinclair Cocoa Nibs

Beer Review from Beer Advocate
Appearance: Pours a 1.5 finger light mocha head with poor retention. Beer is an opaque, pitch black. No lacing with very thin legs. Just below average.

Aroma: Nose is chocolate, lactose, cocoa, and just a splash of peanuts and peanut shell. Moderately aromatic but it works nicely.

Taste: Opens chocolate, lactose and roasted malt. Peanut aroma and flavor lingers in the background. More chocolate and coca cola in the middle. End is peanut, chocolate, and more lactose. Aftertaste of roasted malt. Pretty simple but just as promised. And its better than I expected.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Lively with some bubbles in the mouth and goes down smooth. Messy finish with a lingering aftertaste. Even though this one's got ample carbonation, it comes across very smooth, really helping to integrate the flavors.

Overall: A big want of mine ever since I heard about it, Liquid Bliss delivers exactly what I want it to. I wish the peanut flavors were a bit more pronounced but this beer is well balanced overall and the aroma and body carry the flavors over beautifully. Definitely worth trying.
 
 

The Terrapin at Terrapin Beer Company

 
Terrapin Beer Company
Terrapin Beer Company was founded by Brian "Spike" Buckowski and John Cochran. The two men actually wanted to develop their own brewery, in 1998, before they had their own beer. After finally developing a beer the two were contemplating names when Buckowski, a Grateful Dead fan, mentioned Terrapin. The name comes from "Terrapin Station," which is a Grateful Dead album. After three years of talking to bankers and investors to no avail, Spike and John realized the only way to start Terrapin Beer Company was to begin as a contract brewery.

It released its first beer, the Terrapin Rye Pale Ale, in Spring 2002 at the Classic City Brewfest. Six months later this beer, which was sold only in Athens, Georgia, was awarded the American Pale Ale Gold Medal at the 2002 Great American Beer Festival. With demand for Terrapin growing daily, the Rye Pale Ale was soon made available to beer fans in Atlanta, Georgia as well. Soon after, Terrapin was chosen by producers of "Blue Ribbon" on Turner South to be featured on a TV special about breweries in the South. The viewers of this show voted Terrapin as the Best Brewery in the Southeast by an overwhelming margin of 72%.
