BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Buxton Brewery
England, United Kingdom
buxtonbrewery.co.uk

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
“Yellow belly” — a person who is without courage, fortitude, or nerve; a coward.

To us, one of the most cowardly deeds is to act anonymously, hiding behind a group. A signifying trait of institutionalised racism.

This beer is brewed to celebrate all things new, open minded and progressive. A peanut butter biscuit stout with no biscuits, butter or nuts. Taste, enjoy, and don’t be prejudiced.

/Henok Fentie, Karl Grandin, Denis Johnstone, Jake Oulsnam, Geoff Quinn, Colin Stronge

Collaboration between Buxton Brewery and Omnipollo, Stockholm.

L: Poured from a bottle to a snifter glass. Had a jet black color and a thick, opaque consistency. There was a small amount of foamy, tan-colored head that quickly dissipated. Below average lacing.

S: A very enticing aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, peanut butter, coffee, and biscuits.

T: Tasted of a bit of roasted malt (somewhat in the finish), a lot of peanut butter (not too much), some biscuits, light hops, lots of chocolate, and a tinge of coffee. An incredibly robust, complex, and powerful flavor. Sweet and tasty. No idea how they achieved the peanut butter flavor without using peanut butter.

F: A solid amount of carbonation with a silky smooth finish. Full-bodied.

O: This is an exceptionally well made stout. Very much drinkable. It's dessert in a glass.

Glad to split a bottle of this rarity, which pours jet black with a 1 finger tan head that faded slowly and left good spotty lacing. Great packaging on this bottle.

Smells of peanuts, roasted nuts, chocolate, cocoa powder, chocolate chip cookies, peat moss, smoked grains, soy sauce and molasses. Impressive how they made it smell nutty without using nuts, but it still brings nice chocolate aromas.

Tastes just like it smells with tons of chocolate and toasted nuts, bringing vanilla and the biscotti flavors together for a really complex brew. A bit too much soy sauce in the mix but that thankfully gets balanced out by the char and chocolate for a very tasty and impressive imperial stout.

Pours an almost black dark brown with a thin khaki head that dissipates very quickly with minimal lacing. The aroma is freshly cooked peanut butter cookies. The flavor follows the nose and a little dark chocolate joins the party. The feel is a bit thin for the style, but overall this is fantastic.

Love the smell. Nice medium body. The taste is a tad bitter and not quite as sweet as I'd like. Maybe I'm nursing a cold. Still many good qualities.

2017 bottle poured into a tulip. Opaque and viscous on the pour with a small tan head. Huge peanut butter aroma. Also some chocolate and, yes, biscuity malt. The peanut butter is less up front on the palate, allowing the chocolate and biscuit to shine. A floral bitterness as well. Overall great balance. Outstanding.

Appearance: poured pitch black with a pancake batter colored head.

Smell: muted peanut butter at chilled temp but as it warmed up, it became a nutty Butterfinger candy bar with notes of toffee and chocolate. Heavenly.

Taste: amazingly sweet with notes of peanut butter, chocolate, toffee and a bready biscuit with honey. So rich and indulgent. Just a touch of bitterness at the very finish.

Mouthfeel: very rich and smooth. Full-bodied. Like a liquid candy bar.

Overall: superb. Apparently it doesn't have really peanut butter so I assumed this may taste a bit artificial. While I may be just slightly right, it was still delicious and it did taste 'natural' without that gritty artificial taste.
