L: Poured from a pint can into a pint glass - Intense dark pour, no light coming through. A small head was risen/leaving behind some lacing.
S: Definitely smelling a roasty peanut butter aroma. Notes of dark brown sugar as well.
T: Taste follows aroma - roasty peanut butter initial taste which transforms into a dark brown sugar ride down the hill. I'll say the peanut lingers throughout the tasting into the after taste. Nothing artificial here which is quite nice. Also getting hints of molasses in there too.
F: Medium acidity, heavy bodied, definitely would call this a sipper. wouldn't say the abv is very well hidden but it's hidden enough imo.
O: This is a good imperial peanut butter stout. Wouldn't say this is my favorite but it was good for the style of making. I wouldn't buy again but if your a stout drinker it's worth a try.

Faint taste of peanut butter, roasted malts, coffee
Overall ok. The expectations from the smells becomes disappointment as the tastes aren't there. Would not recommend.

It smells like unsweetened Nutella. You really get a sense of the rich earthy cocoa and some sort of nuttiness.

It tastes like it smells. Bitterness and peanuts dominate with a hint of sweet malty goodness.

It feels like lush velvet in my mouth. It has just a slight pop of very little carbonation. It's thinner than your average stout which makes it very drinkable. Like a nut brown with a very bitter finish.

I really like it. It's not a desert beer at all just nutty, bitter, breadwater. This one gets a 4.9 out of 6.

Medium light carbonation with aboyt average body. Overall a decent feel
Aroma was roasted malt,peanut butter, black coffee, some dark chocolate.
Taste dark chocolate and coffee mix followed by peanut butter blended with roasted malt. Peanut butter wasn't screaming loud but could definitely taste it and it came off real,not artificial.
Overall it was a good shot at the style and worked well as a novelty dessert beer. Not a post lawn mowing beer but was great after dinner. Its worth trying

Smells like peanut butter chocolate soda. Tastes like roasted cashew butter. Creamy and slight peanut flavor. Caramel vanilla. Light bite in the front. Light aftertaste but re-emerges with saliva. Doesn’t taste too deep. Boosting score because it’s enjoyable and I think that’s hard to do with peanut butter brews.

12 ounce can - $2.29 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown body and clear with a high, wholesome stack of yellow-tan foam.

Smell: Sweetish, stewed dark treacle syrup, powdered coffee, a bit of fruitiness and a pinch of vanilla sugar. Has a tinge of generic Kahlua.

Taste: Sweet, sugared tastes of cooked dark treacle blended with store-brand cola. Only rather subtly, vaguely nutty - it doesn't really come across clearly as a peanut butter note. Lightly fruity. Sprinkling of Sanka and a moderate fruitiness with a swig of alcohol, that's about when the discount version of Kahlua pops in.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Feels a bit thin for an imperial stout.

Overall: It's definitely sweet and malty, though it doesn't really succeed at being a great stout. As for its peanut butter character, I gotta say, it feels at best lacking, at worst artificial. Not recommended.

Pours a very dark brown almost black with a large tan head that was well retained but left minimal lacing. Smells of roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee. Taste follows the nose, not really getting peanut butter-just a bit on nuttiness. Medium bodied for the style, medium carbonation, smooth mouth feel.

3/16/2019 - Dark creaminess on palate. Toffee is evident and peanut butter is light — well balanced. Very smooth.
