wow get ready for this to turn into trade bait.

simple, straight to the point: this is an imperial stout that tastes like a gourmet reeses peanut butter cup. docked points for look because it looks more like a milk or oatmeal stout than an imperial stout, mouthfeel is the same story BUT! thick enough even for my preferences.

hadn't head of this brewery before trying this beer after seeing it at my local bottle shop. took a chance and was pleasantly surprised!

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

22oz bottle poured into snifter

A: nice rich black color very little head but slightly off white

S: chocolate and peanut butter but more like candy peanut butter like nutty bars or Reece's .

T: very nice chocolate and roast taste with hints of peanut butter with a little bit of bitterness.

M: Meh it's medium not full and rich it's just a tad thin for a stout

O: The front of this bottle says it's an imperial stout look at the other side and it says the crystal malts give it a peanut butter taste very confusing. It's a pretty good beer but the bitterness is off putting

poured from nitro-tap at brewery into snifter.

pitch black with a fat 2 finger pillowy head piled on top that never completely dissipated and left a nice lacing around the glass.

sweet coffee hits the nose backed by chocolate and roasted malts. nothing immediately stands out. the chocolate bitterness hits the tounge balancing things out. nice.

nitro-taps and stouts are a match made in heaven... nothing new there.

even at 9% this is almost too drinkable.
