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.

Collaboration between Buxton Brewery and Omnipollo, Stockholm.

11.2oz bottle. Pours a blackish dark brown color with no head. Virtually no lacing. The aroma is very sweet with lots of milk chocolate, peanut butter, cookies, roasted malts, and caramel. The taste is peanut butter and biscuits followed up by milk chocolate and espresso. Has a bit of a chocolate covered salted pretzel kind of taste. Sweet chocolate and peanut butter finish. Borders on being too sweet. Pretty noticeable alcohol presence. Mouthfeel is lighter than expected. A pretty whacky beer that is certainly on the expensive side, but worth trying at least once.

Look, black with a very faint tan head that quickly dissipates .
Smell, one of the best smelling things I have experienced. Straight up peanut butter cookie.
Taste, I let the beer warm up a little longer after my first sip, which helped bring out the dryer peanut butter flavors, followed by some sweet espresso notes.
Feel, lighter than I expected or would want, but I don't hold it against this beer.

Overall, if it wasn't such a rare/weird beer I wouln't spend $14 on it. But it was worth a try to finally have it.

Finally poured to a Omnipollo tumbler.

A: The body is thick as hell, having a very syrupy touch and creates almost no no head when forcing it. It’s deep black colored and the head is dark brown. No lacing nor retention.
S: As my push my head into the glass, the amazing aroma of Yellow Belly almost leaves me breathless and my knees feel a bit weak. :) Just giant touches of chocolate, peanut butter and biscuits are coming into my nose. This is something like having Noa for the first time. Also in the back of the nose, just a small hint of alcohol.
T: The taste starts off very very sweet but not nauseous, having a somehat pinch of salt from the taste that follows right after, the peanut butter profile. Having this blend with the incoming chocolate at first, creates a feeling of deliciousness in your mouth as this pastry beer melts in your mouth. In the end, a slight bitter slight salty finish is presented.
M: Body is high. Carbonation, on this beer, is too high, alcohol is also a bit present but it’s normal due to the fact that this is 11% ABV.
O: It’s another incredible imperial stout from Omnipollo. Period. One of the best of the current days.

330ml bottle poured into a snifter.

Ink black in color with thin tan foam popping up and gone to some film and sheet on the surface, it also leaves a trail of spotty lace and some sticky leg through the glass.

Peanut butter obviously covering a nose, beneath that, there are multiple layers of milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, sugar, toffee, caramel, cream, honey, nut, some roasted, biscuit, cookie, vanilla, even mild dark fruit in the distance.

Sweet and smooth as silk through the palate sensation from the like of peanut butter and the used of oat, anyway, it is not cloyingly sweet being leverage by some roasted and toasted nut. Other than that, it is dedicated for sweet tooth with milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, sugar, toffee, caramel, cream, honey, biscuit, cookie, and vanilla.

Rather full body with a little stickiness but it is not that so chewy with some carbonation and liveliness through the palate to balance the thing out, the mouthfeel is very smooth with a very dry and pleasant finish.

Dessert Stout as its best. Alcohol is perfectly concealed leaving only sweet deliciousness and well-round taste yet to-die-for aroma.

From 32 Great Power. In Teku glass. Playing A Foretold Affair. Spectacular aroma, to what i suppose should be peanut butter. In mouth this profile appears too along wih chocolate . Silky, bitter and warm

On tap at ABV.

Jet black with a dense, dark brown head, this looks great. The nose is an awesome blend of peanut butter and dark chocolate, with a little bit of dark fruit and coffee. The peanuts have a nice, roasted character to them. Mild dark fruit with plums and raisins are present. The palate opens big and full with tons of roasted peanut, bitter dark chocolate, fruity dark roasted coffee and a mild dark caramel flavor. Full in body, moderately carbonated and with a lingering peanut and chocolate character in the finish, this is excellent. No unctuous and oily notes from the peanuts. The adjunct expression is clean and true, and that keeps this beer from being nothing more than a gimmick.
