4.35/5  rDev +9.8%

22 Ounce Bottle from BevMo

Poured into pint glass

A - Pours pitch black with thinner creamy tan head.

S - Dark toasty/roasty malt smell with coffee, chocolate and maybe even a little peanut butter. I know it's stretch but it's there.

T- Strong coffee and chocolate forward stout. Very strong typical of an imperial but not too boozy. 8.7 ABV. Don't want to chug this. It's for savoring and has a nice long warm finish.

M- Thick and substantive.

O- This is a good imperial stout. I usually favor "regular" stouts over imperials because they are too boozy this may be my favorite imperial stout. Good beer.

Consumed June 9th, 2014 at The Tipsy Cow, Sherman Oaks, CA.

Beer is a deep dark brown (almost black). A two-finger foamy off-white/light tan head sticks around for a while and provides adequate lacing.

Aroma is chocolate milk and vanilla. Yummy!

Flavor is reminiscent of malted milk. Some vanilla and mild coffee notes as well. Sneaking bitterness creeps in at the end, providing a nice finish to this agreeable beer.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with proper carbonation. Surprised by the ABV; I never would have guessed it so high.

This was a nice surprise, especially considering my previous encounters with Mother Earth beers have been less than a delight.

This is the Sin Tax Imperial PB stout. The bartender presented it as a peanut butter milk stout, which it is not - it is too bitter and not smooth enough to be a milk stout.

Almost no head nor lacing, maybe due to the plain pint glass.

Smells of strong candi, Cocoa, caramel, and a hint of peanuts and roasted malts.

Tastes of reasted coffee, caramel, and really hoppy.

The beer is medium to full bodied, and is right on the edge of the regular-to-imperial stout classification, with 8.1%abv.

Strong carbonation, and almost drinkable if it want for the over-hopped character.

Tulip glass filled from 22 oz bomber

A. Pitch black, lots of carbonation
S. Toffee, coffee, rich
T. Roasted coffee, chocolate, not too bitter or sweet
M. Somewhat thin
O. I like this beer, it has a nice roasted coffee forward taste and the moderate alcohol level is well hidden. There is a good sweet/bitter balance. Tasty! I like this beer.

Pours opaque black with cola edges. The 1/2 inch tan head fades to a thin ring on top and leaves spots of lace.

The smell is of peanut butter, dark chocolate and roasted dark malt.

The taste is of grainy dark malt, peanut butter and dark chocolate with a slightly bitter hop finish.

The texture is medium bodied with high carbonation.

Pleasant peanut butter and dark chocolate flavor. A thicker mouthfeel would elevate this beer to greatness.
