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.

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.
