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.

Huge dark chocolate ganache and peanut, with just enough bitter cocoa powder to make it dry enough for repeated indulgences. Decadent in the truest sense. A delight for the senses. A rare treat. The finest, richest dessert.

One of the strangest, most complicated beers I've ever tried. Definite peanut butter, chocolate and cookie taste, and the mouthfeel is buttery and exceptional. At 11%, it is boozy, and I'm hoping a year in the cellar will give this a perfect score.

++ points for the coolest, most controversial packaging out there.

A great beer.

Pours a deep dark black with minimal head.

Smells like a butter finger bar and the taste is similar to the smell.

A really thick mouthfeel to this amazing beer

Bottle purchased at Nathaniel Square Corner Store in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a dark, deep, slightly oily looking black, with a very small mocha colored head, and no lacing.

The aroma leaps out of the glass, even without bringing it up to your face. Absolutely insane- heaps of roasty peanut butter- just the absolutely nuttiest and natural peanut butter you've ever seen, with some bitter dark chocolate, roasty earthy coffee, dark roasted malt, caramel, and butterscotch. It's unfathomable that a beer with this aroma could be brewed without peanut butter, or coffee, or chocolate, or any added flavorings. You serious Clark?

The taste is just as awesome. So much peanut butter here, with caramel syrup, freshly roasted coffee, hazelnut, pecans, roasted malt, toffee, butterscotch, and really bitter dark chocolate. This manages to stay balanced- it's not too sweet, as it's got some really nice bitter aspects to it. It's near perfect- truly one of the best stouts I've ever had. It manages to accomplish what Funky Buddha does so well- recreate a culinary item- in this case, a peanut butter biscuit. However, this surpasses that because it's not loaded with added flavoring. These flavors were accomplished with expert use of malts, hops, and yeast. I can't believe peanut butter is not added to this. It's nuts.

This is medium bodied, pretty thick and rich, but not the thickest or richest stout out there. Because of this however, it's pretty drinkable- the bottle went down fairly easily. The 11% ABV does not show itself here. You can't taste it, but you can definitely feel it- you feel nice and warm at the end.

A huge accomplishment from Buxton and Omnipollo, one of the most original stouts I've ever had. This is also brewing magic, as I stated above. I can't fathom how they managed to get these flavors into beer given the standard ingredients list. Bravo!

The beer comes in a thick dark black with brown sticky to the glass.

The aroma is an explosion of flavor that immediately reminds me of Funky Buddha's concoctions. The nose hits of caramelized Nutter Butter cookies or peanut brittle. Tons of viscous butterscotch drizzle on a sundae and still surrounded by sweet chocolate

The flavor follows with that sweet chocolate, unctuous peanut butter, caramel drizzle. After that initial attack, the beer moves onto alcohol to dry out the beer. It is a great example of booze working in a larger brew.

One of the best "original" beers I have had this year.
