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.

Black beer (my favorite kind!) Nice tan head with good lacing. Full bodied, nice coffee taste, but the peanut butter taste is kind of strange. Not bad, just different. Good beer, but I probably won't buy it again.

Very dark appearance with slight tan head and no carbonation. A mild coffee aroma is present. Taste is a very smooth coffee and nuts that is slightly sweet.

Poured from a 12 oz can into glass mug. Nice colour, looks very dark brown with a dark tan head. Smells very much of chocolate and coffee. Taste is very chocolaty with a nice hint of peanut butter. Heavy mouthfeel like most stouts but still goes down easy. Reminded me of liquid peanut butter cup. Prost!

12oz can into tulip glass.

A: Dark black body with ruby showing at the stem of the glass; huge brown head recedes to a consistent ring.

S: Fairly big aromas of chocolate, vanilla, roast and hazelnut...does smell roasty, nutty, and semi-sweet.

T: Taste follows the nose with dry nutty peanuts and hazelnuts, roasted malts, medium sweet chocolate, vanilla, faint caramel and fruitiness. Dry finish leans more towards peanut butter than hazelnut, pretty dry.

MF: Creamy and fairly smooth. Could be fuller bodied, this is about medium bodied I would say. Dry finish is a bit fatiguing by the end.

O: Nice execution, fairly drinkable peanut butter stout. Nice chocolate, nutty, vanilla components. A good beer to share.

On tap. I think this is supposed to be a peanut butter stout. I don't get that at all. Taste is rather bitter for a stout, and even a bit fruity like raspberry. I wouldn't be surprised if this was barrel aged, as there are oak and vanallia flavors too. Abv well hidden. Overall a complex and fun beer. I like it a lot
