Poured from the bottle into a large snifter glass.

Faint tan topped head, slightly taller than a finger, but with good retention. Does dissolve though to the top of the beer and leaves quite a big bubbled collar. Weeping legs, spotted lacing, sitting on top of a dark brown walnut body.

For a peanut butter brewed stout which has been the thing of the day these days… The aroma goes more for a nice fruity and complimentary ester. Grape jam and peanut making for a sandwich quality. Hints of light roast complimenting things out as well. Nice and balanced, but also nicely played on the aroma without going to extremes. Chocolate angle though is quite indistinct if non existent.

Palate brings a much different animal. Sweet grape and raspberry like flavors with a nice cheap box of chocolate quality. Not quite silky feel on them mouth, but some faint jammy quality expressing itself.

I like this, but it's very different and not a big peanut butter chocolate quality. If anything it has great fruity like character and faint nut that makes it quite unique. Nice experiment.

It's a peanut butter stout! Everyone put away your high standards of imperial stout excellence and adjust your expectations accordingly - it's a peanut butter stout! You reach for it when you want to drink peanut butter and chocolate beer. Black with a thin, light brown kinda-grey-ish head. You have to drink this at 45-50 degrees; too cold and the PB will be muted. Aroma of peanut butter, baker's chocolate and heavy roasted malt. Lots of peanut butter and chocolate, but it's not quite sweet or bitter. Occupies a middle ground which could be perceived as either subtle or weak. Soft mouthfeel with lingering chocolate and boozy heat; the 10% ABV is there. Enjoyable beer if you know what you want.

This beer was a very dark brown color with no head.
Aroma of peanut butter and chocolate, mostly peanut.
It tasted like a Reese's cup.
It had a cloying sweetness to it.
Not a beer I'd want to drink again.

Having just reviewed Throwback's new chai-spiced porter recently and, in said review, recalling that I've had only a few of their offerings, I decided to pick up a bottle of their peanut butter chocolate stout, Fat Alberta. The format is apparently different from how the beer was offered before: this is a 16.9 oz "royal pint" bottle, where I believe before it had been bottled in 22 oz bottles. I paid $10 for this, whereas it looks like people had paid about $15 for the bigger bottle. I think this is probably a fairer format and a better pricing scheme, as the beer is fairly strong (10%) and features some adjunct ingredients. This bottle is dated with a sticker on the bottom that reads "FA-10 12/22/15."

The look as this poured was pretty conservative, with a deep, dark stout pour capped by a light mocha head that settles to a single-finger ring in the glass. Lacing is soapy and ephemeral, but it's definitely there. Not bad at all. Bubbles quickly pop on the surface each time some beer is poured into the glass, so there's a little activity, but it definitely clears out pretty fast. Not sure if it has something to do with the peanut butter used? On the nose there's moderate diacetyl notes, which actually come off as a bit appreciable here due to the fact that this is supposed to be a beer on the slicker/sweeter side of things. There's something weirdly artificial/"chemical" about the nose as well... it's very oily and sweet but I can't place it. Maybe a bit like vanilla and milk caramel as well. Not much in the way of chocolate or traditional, roasty stout notes, but it's pretty good somehow. Definitely in the realm of "sweet stout" instead of a traditional big stout with added flavor components. I pick up a good amount of generic peanut butter as well, and that's definitely nice if you're into that thing.

On the palate, this is a confusing beer because it leads off with a sugary sweetness that fades into a dry yet smooth peanut butter-y finish. There's very little else here... maybe a tiny bit of roast and cocoa, but it's all kind of taken a backseat to the intensity of the peanut butter. This is definitely very similar to a Reese's cup in alcoholic beverage form. I don't think it has enough stout notes to really be considered as an imperial stout proper, as the focus is certainly more on the flavorings here. This reminds me of something Southern Tier would make as part of the Blackwater series, and I bet that was a point of inspiration for the Throwback brewers. ST tends to make very robustly flavored bigger stouts which usually have a lot of sweet notes on top of the base beer, tending to actually mute the base, just like this does. The only thing I can really compare this to, though, is Foolproof's Peanut Butter Raincloud, a similar beer with a dark porter base that uses peanut butter as well. It's a bit drier and subtler about how it utilizes the PB flavoring, and I kind of prefer that (I've gone back to that beer multiple times; it's a huge winner in my book, for the record), but I'm having trouble really saying I dislike this because it's definitely up-front about what it is.

The finish on this is actually quite satisfying and has a dry-roasted peanut flavor that really makes each sip work well, allowing me to kind of overlook its bizarre misgivings and to give it the benefit of the doubt despite it being pretty weird and super heavy-handed about its adjunct ingredients. Some more base beer would really help this breathe a bit and stop it from being nearly-cloying, but I don't think it's really a bad drink. Balance issues are common in small production breweries, and it looks like this has been tweaked a bit over time, so I hope they dial it in more. I'll probably return to it in the future just to see how it's changed.

I've had the 2013 and the 2014 Fat Albertas. I'm a fan of peanut flavored beers. Throwback is a local brewery and I'd like to give this a better rating but I can't. The 2013 was better, less sweet more dry roasted peanut flavor. The 2014 had a weird sweetness to it, that my drinking buddy thought gave it a jelly additional taste. I found the 2014 to have less peanut flavor. The 2013 was the better beer, slightly roasted coffee flavor, minimal dry roasted peanut flavor. The 2014 bordered on being bad. There are many better peanut butter beers out there; Liquid Lunch, Big Gruesome, Sweet Baby Jesus. I won't be buying this again.

Wow. This is a great beer. If you are looking for a rich, smooth, peanut butter beer stout, look no further. A little bottle age did wonders for this beer as it's smooth, complex and well integrated. I've had many stouts and for me, this is a stand-out and punches far above the current consensus rating.

This tastes just like a liquid peanut butter cup. A lot of fresh roasted peanuts on the nose and in the taste. A little thin but still a really nice stout.

Dated 12/10/2014. Pours blackish brown with no head, carbonation, or lacing. Smells of peanut butter. Tastes like sour chocolate peanut butter. Moderately thick and the 10% abv is hidden so sip. First Throwback beer and it was different but enjoyable to drink

Very dark, almost black with tanhead. Little lacing.
Smells of chocolate and slight smell of peanuts.
Dark chocolate beginning with definite peanut butter at the end.
Mouthfeel is a little light for this type, but definitely not a deterrent.
Overall a very good twist on a RIS.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance - Thick black with a 1 inch soft/fluffy brown/cream colored head. The head disappears rather quickly and thins out to a thin outer ring around the glass.

Aroma - Smells of chocolate and peanut butter with a bit of roasted malts as well. Unable to detect any of the hop flavors that you make expect from a 78 IBU beer.

Taste - Peanuts up front followed by roasted chocolates. Slight bit of bitterness from the hops.

Mouthfeel - Thick and creamy to start. As the beer warms up, the body becomes a little bit thinner and feels smoother/silkier on the tongue. Tends to leave a sticky sensation around the month as well.

Overall - A good beer from a local brewery. Worth a try, but not a must have each year it is released.

The beer pours a nice, midnight black with no light coming through. It pours with a head of tiny bubbles the color of a nice sandy khaki, bordering on orange. The head is a light scrim but still has a little height to it, and it leaves lines of thin and droopy lacing along the glass. The beer’s body is completely indistinguishable due to the beer’s dark coloring. On the nose, the beer smells of deep roasty peanuts with a nice touch of chocolate. The peanut smell is tremendously strong, tipping briefly into vegetal notes with touches of briny salt. It’s not the best smell right as it hits your nostrils, but as you smell further it becomes quite inviting. On the tongue the beer tastes chocolate sweet with a roasty bitter balance to the beer, and some slight saltiness from the peanuts. In flavor, the beer begins as sweet chocolate, which is immediately muscled aside by rich, homemade peanut butter flavors. I say homemade because the actually nutty flavor of the peanuts is beautifully present beside the richer flavors of cream. Salt and touches of herbal grass are also present on the tongue, but the peanuts are the main flavor here, and they are gracefully blanketed by a light flavor of milk chocolate. The finish is big peanuts, salt, and then a lingering creamy chocolate flavor that creates the aftertaste. In the mouth, the beer feels thick and creamy in body with a nice chewy mouthfeel and a soft, velvety carbonation with just a light bite. The mouth is left wet, but peanut dry on the very middle of the tongue. My only complaint is that I want this beer a little thicker. Overall, this is a hell of a unique beer. A peanut lovers’ beer for sure, with enough chocolate to interest the Reese’s lovers, too. It makes a great dessert beer, and would probably pair beautifully with vanilla ice cream. This is a beer for dessert, so don’t go trying to session it. Definitely a beer to try, and a great beer from Throwback.

Poured the full bomber into an oversized mug.

Nice looking pour, that got better with time. The mocha colored head just wouldn't quit, and regenerated over the course of 1.5 hours of drinking this one. The body is a deep brown, pretty standard.

Aroma is literally like a freshly-cracked can of peanut butter. The deep peanut note is accompanied by a mild chocolate aroma, near to a peanut butter cup. Nice stuff.

The flavor proves to be true to the aroma and to the label. Pure peanut dominates, followed by a slight chocolate touch and very little booze accompaniment. The finish is just slightly hot, but for the most part, this is a dessert.

The big trouble with this brew is the thin body and mouthfeel. My palate fully expects these flavors to be accompanied by thickness and depth. But this brew is too thin for peanuts and chocolate. If it were heavier, and the booze showed itself a little more, we'd have a home run. As it is, it is surprisingly thin and meek given the flavor profile and ABV.

A nice beer overall. The flavor is held back only by a lack of thickness and umph in the body. Close to a really great beer.

22oz. bottle shared by EnronCFO. Pours one shade shy of black with a loose, quarter inch mocha-colored head that dissipates into a swirl and a slick. Nose expresses peanut butter, dark malts and a hint of oxidation. Taste is acidic, malty and oxidized. There is a definite dark fruit presence; however, the peanut butter disappears in the flavor profile. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body and slightly acidic. Carbonation level is even from start to finish. I think this brew might have been quite tasty fresh; however, I feel like there may be some infection present. Not something I would sit on if I were you.

Big thanks to johnnnnie for this one!

A: Pours a very dark brown, almost black with a very fizzy tan head that reduces rather quickly. Minimal lacing.

S: Fantastic, just as advertised. Lots of peanuts and peanut butter with a little bit of chocolate and roasted malt mixed int.

T: The peanuts show up right away, but the rest of the flavor profile is a bit messy, some roasted malt and a very little bit of chocolate. The flavor is actually gone rather quickly with very little aftertaste. As others have mentioned, don't really see the IBUs.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A little cloying.

O: The smells is great, but the flavor profile comes off a bit muddled and confusing. Would think that it would be nice off nitro.

Had a SMBDC Stout tasting thanks to Amy and Michael, but don't remember who brought this one.

No head, dark murky brown water colored.

nose peanut butter galore, salty peanuts, light chocolate, hint of brown malts.

Taste is more peanuts, peanut butter, light cocoa, sweet almost jelly like fruit, some bitterness, nutty malts, chewy but light creamy, earthy chewy hops, light caramel, hint of jelly fruit which may just be in my mind but I can't tell, and a little oily.

Mouth is med to a bit bigger bodied, decent carb, little oily.

Overall meh, way too big on peanuts that overpower everything, not sure on the jelly fruit but it could be there, just a hint of malts overall.

22oz bottle poured into a Tulip Glass.

A - Pours jet black with a creamy mocha head that settles to a thick ring and spotty haze.
S - Yeah, this definitely smells like peanut butter. But not the sweet Jif/Skippy peanut butter, more like the organic stuff you buy at Whole Foods that's essentially *just* ground-up peanuts. A touch of bitter chocolate, a bit of smoke, and some roasted malt rounds out the nose. I love peanut butter, but I don't know about this...
T - Yeah, not...great. Oh, it certainly delivers on what it promises, I'm getting loads of roasted peanuts, some chocolate, malt, and (for some reason) cola, but it just doesn't work in a beer. Weird and more then a bit artificial tasting, with a slightly tart, pickle-brine finish. Ugh.
M - Mouthfeel really kills this for me, though. Syrupy and a bit sticky, with a medium body overall and too-high carbonation. Think chocolate-peanut-butter-pickle-brine soda and you have this beer. No thanks.
O - I dunno, this feels like more of a gimmick then a real effort at making a good beer. I enjoyed Uber Goober from Short's, stick with that if you want a peanut butter beer.

Poured from a bomber into a tumbler pint, the beer is jet black, with a thin, quarter inch, light brown colored head. Aromas are very rich, and roll right off the beer and out of the glass. Heavy nose of peanuts, with a creamy character to it, and a strong, subtle coffee background. Smells pretty tasty. The flavors are very well blended, and not nearly as bitter as I was expecting. The peanut flavors become creamy and sweet, and the cocoa nib gives a slightly bitter balance, as does the roasted coffee flavors. Tastes like a Nutter Butter dunked in a cup of coffee that has been sitting on the counter all day. Good, sweet blast to a more subtle, stale bitterness. The beer is midbodied, with an overall dry feel, which works well with the flavor profile to avoid being cloying or overpowering. The aftertaste is more of the coffee bitter, with a touch of chocolate, and it remains strong and rich. The finish leaves a bit of the peanut flavors behind, as well as a slightly sugary profile. Decent beer, and very interesting flavor profile. Tasty.

I purchased two bottles from Throwback on the release date, November 20th. Had the first taste tonight.

Poured into a 12oz Throwback tuilp glass that i also purchased.

A- rich dark color, like a coke or a pepsi. Minimal head no lacing, not long lasting. has some leg, like a good burbon or whiskey

S- like peanutbutter, and a slight alcohol hint to the beer.

t- slight peanutbutter on the back end, a boozy/winey taste is the most prominent taste i get. lots of sweet, but not malty sweet. no bitterness to ofset sweetness. little to no chocolate flavor. lable says 78 IBUs, but i'm not getting that.

m- not much carbination,not a heavy beer by anymeans. pleasant mouthfeel thought.

o- not bad, going to share the 2nd bottle i'm sure or i might save it and go vertical with the next batch and see how it deviates.

Poured into a tulip. This one pours a cola colored dark brown with a thin fizzy light tan head that fizzes away quicker than it can form. Basically, this looks like Pepsi.

So I'm really torn here. This smells like straight up peanut butter. Here's my issue, I like peanut butter. A lot. I eat it like ten times a week in some form but I'm not sure if I'm digging it in my beer. So, we'll hit the middle of the road here. Not bad but not great. Also, this has an artificial sweetener aroma that I just don't dig. I guess diet peanut butter cup is a good way to put it. I'm not even going to get into much detail here. This kind of taste like peanuts and cucumbers (somehow). I guess I can kind of taste some cocoa but this is just meh. Meh I say.

Lighter body here than I would like with ample carbonation. Overall just skip this one guys. This doesn't taste good. The best thing is the smell and it's simply because I like peanut butter. But honestly, if I want to sniff some peanut butter I just go to my kitchen and crack open the JIff.

Thanks, Bendurgin, for sharing! Poured into a tulip. During the pour this fizzes like cola; the head disappears immediately.

The first whiff is all peanut butter. There is some malt sweetness detected the more time my nose spends in here, but this is mostly peanut butter.

The taste is a muddled delivery of sweet malt and peanut. This is for the most part alright, but the aftertaste is where the real horror begins. There is a vegetal flavor throughout and there isn't much bitterness to offset the sweetness.

This is kind of light for a stout with sharp instead of smooth carbonation.

Not good.

Fills the glass with an absolute pitch black stout body and a foamy but short-lived tan head.

Initial aroma provided strong chocolate and roasty notes but as those dispersed the peanut butter notes really started to come through. From this point forward it's almost all peanut with just a little room left for the cocoa.

I was a bit skeptical at first when buying this beer but am pleasantly to surprised to see it delivers on all accounts. Fearing that the peanut butter would be too strong, it's nice to have a strong roasted note to remind you this is a stout at heart. Cocoa nibs add their touch but aren't quite as sweet as expected and naturally pair well with the peanutty goodness.

Mouthfeel is thick but smooth and well rounded. Overall, this beer makes for a nice treat for dessert but it's boldness makes it a one and done kinda beer.

Was lucky enough to get the last bottle at Berts. Poured into a tulip.

A- Rich dark brown, almost black. Beautiful brown head that dissipates quickly. Lacing is minimal.

S- Smells a bit more esthery than I expected, but when you get behind that initial booze smell it opens up to roasted peanuts, sweet cocoa nib, and malty goodness. The smell makes me think of the texture of of the peanut butter in a Recces Cup for some reason.

T- The roasted peanuts dominate, but not in an overpowering way. The toasted notes on the peanuts carry all the way from the front to back of the taste. They are mellowed, and complimented with the bitter sweetness of the nibs. This leaves the aftertaste of peanut butter...without being overtly peanut buttery. Its awesome!

M- The mouth feel is my favorite part of this beer. Its full, and complex, and as you drink it you can taste all the complexities of the beer as it moves from the front of your mouth all the way through the after taste. The after taste makes me feel as if I should have peanut skin stuck in my teeth.

I love this beer. I had been anticipating its release for sometime, and was not disappointed in the least. When I asked Bert what he thought he replied "have you ever had a Funny Bone?" That sums this beer up to me for some reason. However, I'd take Alberta over a Funny Bone every day of the week, and twice on Sunday.

22oz bottle poured into a Smuttynose tulip.

A - Pours dark, dark brown when held to the light. Thin fizzy cap of dark tan foam blends to a collar around the edge of the glass. No real lacing to speak of.

S - Smells heavily of raosted peanuts, mild milk chocolate, a hit of licorice and just a touch of boozy alcohol. Was expecting a bit more complexity to show up here.

T - Peanuts are heavy on the first impression. Chocolate, licorice, mild booze as in the aroma follow. Also get some mild bitter hops.

M - Medium bodied...definitely not as thick as I'd expected to get out of this beer. Lightly sweet and chocolatey. Very nutty! Carbonation is on the light side and gives a creamy impression.

O - Overall - pretty good. Interesting nutty flavor - never had a beer with so much "peanuttyness"...Chocolate is there too, but doesn't really approach Reeses status. A bit thinner in body than I'd prefer and just a bit of booze.

I cracked this bottle tonight with a couple of friends.
Pours a pretty solid dark brown/Black color with a decent tan head that shows moderate retention and minimal lace. Smells like lots of peanuts and peanut butter right after the cap is popped. Some chocolate, hints of caramel and roast round out the aroma. Taste is again peanut butter and chocolate right up front. Burnt coffee, caramel, with hints of alcohol and dark sugar round out the flavor profile. This one claims 70+ Ibu's but I can't find much of that under all these layers. Medium to thick body, light to moderate level of carbonation with a thick sweet almost acridic mouthfeel. This is an interesting beer and it certainly gets points for being different. It is also quite tasty. I would have liked it a bit thicker in body and a bit less harsh with the roasted bitterness. I would drink it again if given the opportunity.

Presentation: Bomber bottle, one of two bottles I got at the release, poured into my Bruery tulip after being chilled.

Appearance: Pitch black in color with a nice, creamy two finger head. Recedes into a nice lacing.

Aroma: Peanut dust and shell are definitely dominant in the nose. A touch of alcohol presence that really wanes as it warms. The peanut notes really assert far more than the chocolate.

Taste: Peanut butter and peanut shells are definitely there. A touch of bitter cocoa nibs and chocolate malt and caramel. I really am starting to enjoy this more as it warms. Really smooth.

Mouthfeel: Creamy and full bodied, pretty spot on.

Overall, an interesting take on an imperial stout. Not sure if it comes together completely as I hoped, but I like it certainly. I definitely am looking forward to more new Throwback beers.
