Sampling a cellar temp 16 oz can poured into my snifter. Beer was purchased at the brewery.
The beer pours a deep cola brown color with a fizzy beige head of 1 cm that fades quickly to a thin edge layer.
The aroma is some dark chocolate and some brown sugar with a good dose of bourbon. No peanut butter note here. Booze is also well hidden on the nose, even though this is a pretty big beer, but had hoped for some roasted nut notes or peanut hits.
First sip reveals a medium body with a sticky texture and fine slightly tingly carbonation. Nice physical traits on this beer for an imperial stout. Definitely coats my palate a bit after each swallow.
Flavor is what the nose predicts, I get some sweet chocolate and brown sugar with again the bourbon showing through, sweet though, no heat. Maybe a little vanilla and just the faintest of sweet peanut butter notes.
No hop presence and the booze is only faintly present on the swallow.
I like this as an imperial stout, even a bourbon barrel aged one, but the peanut butter had my hopes up and it just isnt there for me. Maybe it has faded, maybe it never really took. A little disappointing as the stouts from Black Hog are usually spot on. The beer is good, just missing any prominence of peanut butter.
