Tasted from bottle 2018 edition. Black with beige head. Aroma of peanuts, coffee and cocoa. Moderately sweet and bitter. Not an overpowering peanut butter flavor. Well balanced with the coffee and chocolate along with a slight bit of caramel. Very nice beer.

Black with brown edges and tan foam. Lasting coverage and spotty lace.
Peanut butter cup aroma, a swirl brings out coffee and dark chocolate.
Bitter coffee and chocolate flavors, mild peanut butter.
A little thin bodied for an imperial stout, moderately bitter.
Overall it’s a great blend of aromas and flavors, though the feel is a little jarring. It grows on me after a while.

Thanks Tom for sharing this one!

Great big peanut butter aroma, with a hint of dark chocolate behind it. Pours an opaque black with a ring of tan foam around the edge of the glass. Slick, full mouthfeel with rich chocolate and peanut butter notes coming through. There's a touch of coffee in the finish, and just the slightest hint of alcohol heat. This is a fantastic beer, and I'm lucky to be able to get it.
