Pours a clear dark brown producing barely 1.5 fingers of tan, shortlived, frothy head that leaves no cap, a thin collar & only a few motes & splotches of lace. Nose is roasted notes of cocoa, dark bread & nutty peanut butter with smoke & metallic hints. Taste is roast, buttered pumpernickel, peanut butter & chocolate pudding notes with smoke, spice, plastic & mineral/metallic hints. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy bodied with moderate carbonation, creamy, silky & smooth with a hint of prickle.

12 oz can with a "genesis" date of 3/2017.
Lots of peanut butter in the aroma but less peanut butter flavor than some other PB beers, allowing the dark roasted grains to mix in nicely. Partially hidden ABV.
Very smooth, full body with well set light carbonation.

Appearance: Jet black with a 2 finger caramel incredibly inviting head

Smell: Chocolate and sweet candy toffee. Slight alcohol burn in the nose as well

Taste: incredibly sweet up front. Slight hint of peanut butter chocolate and hop bitterness through the swallow leaving an alcohol burn in back of throat post swallow

Mouthfeel: in spite of sweetness up front this finishes pretty dry. Carbonation level is low and leaves an almost astringent aftertaste

Overall: all in all decent. Not as good as I was hoping but not horrible. The roasted malts were spot on. However the over sweetness seemed manufactured. Fits the style it advertises

Looks like you would expect, dark black, minimal head. The peanut butter aspect is pretty mild in both the aroma and the flavor but it is there. Don't expect a peanut butter bomb like Belching Beaver. Decent porter.

February 6th, 2015 - Mother Earth is clearly proud of Sin Tax, and for good cause. Dark and deep, with a creamy, chocolate smell, it expresses almost as much as a dessert as it does a beer. There's a root beer element to it as well, laced with chocolate syrup. The flavor embraces this chocolate syrup note, making this taste more like a chocolate stout. The aftertaste is long and somewhat sweeter than the rest of the brew, like a melted chocolate bar.

Pours dark (in bar, hard to see). Nice creamy light brown head. Aroma is creamy milk chocolate peanut butter. It's faint, but it's there. Taste is a little more coffee, peanut butter in the beginning and also throughout the finish. Feel is soft, light and creamy. Overall, pretty good.

The beer is a dark brown/black, with a ruby bulb up to direct light. Big tan head that sticks, and leaves a nice lacing. The aroma, roasted peanuts, and a dark chocolate Reese's cup. It's not obnoxious or fake smelling. In the flavor, same deal, nice dark Reese's cup, and not overly sweet, though. There is some real bitterness that cuts through, and lingers. The peanut flavor is there but not over done. The feel is medium full body, dry, and has average carbonation. So, this is a good brew if you want a peanut butter/chocolate stout that isn't too sweet, and leaves you looking for your tooth brush, immediately.

12 ounce can poured into a tulip

A: Pours black with a tan colored head, no retention or lacing, looks watery, lots of light comes through when held up, never seen such a light bodied imperial stout.

A: Subtle notes of powdery, malt, shake like peanut butter, light notes of roasted malts, slight notes of sweet chocolate, no alcohol on the nose, very subtle aromas.

T: Lots of bitterness and artificial peanut butter, roasted coffee, malts, expresso, lots of bitterness in the middle, finish has notes of dark, roasted chocolate, also picking up some dark roasted coffee in the finish, a faint artificial peanut butter taste is present throughout.

M: Light/medium bodied with a very dry dark coffee like finish.

O: Not very enjoyable at all, the peanut butter flavor and aroma come off as artificial, aroma lacks complexity and depth, as well as the flavor, it hits all the imperial stout notes but it tastes very cheap, definitely glad I picked up a single as I would have hated to waste money on more.
