Wow. This is a great beer. If you are looking for a rich, smooth, peanut butter beer stout, look no further. A little bottle age did wonders for this beer as it's smooth, complex and well integrated. I've had many stouts and for me, this is a stand-out and punches far above the current consensus rating.

This tastes just like a liquid peanut butter cup. A lot of fresh roasted peanuts on the nose and in the taste. A little thin but still a really nice stout.

Dated 12/10/2014. Pours blackish brown with no head, carbonation, or lacing. Smells of peanut butter. Tastes like sour chocolate peanut butter. Moderately thick and the 10% abv is hidden so sip. First Throwback beer and it was different but enjoyable to drink

Very dark, almost black with tanhead. Little lacing.
Smells of chocolate and slight smell of peanuts.
Dark chocolate beginning with definite peanut butter at the end.
Mouthfeel is a little light for this type, but definitely not a deterrent.
Overall a very good twist on a RIS.
