Brownish black with a thin brown collar. Smell is intoxicating, like a peanut butter cut laced with espresso and dark chocolate instead of the milk chocolate. Bourbon lingers in the background and finish. Taste is more separated, dark chocolate and bourbon, then peanut butter, then more booze with malt, leather, and licorice, and at last finishing coffee. Really if the leather and licorice did not break into my dessert fantasy so much I would like it more, but I didn't hate it, quite good. Feel is lighter than other stouts by cycle with plenty of coffee sharpness and bourbon booze.

pours a dark brown almost black with dark mocha swirls. sits in the glass nearly black but is more see-through light brown near the edges. smell is a lot of peanut butter, a little barrel and almost no coffee. taste is a combo of chocolate, peanut butter, loads of whiskey and slight taste of bitter coffee. the coffee (or something?) is leaving a weird back-end aftertaste. feel is medium thick and low carb. overall, another winner from cycle. nice peanut butter on the nose and taste with no shortage of barrel character. all of this meshes perfectly with the chocolatey base stout. probably could have cut out the coffee altogether. didn’t get much of it in smell or taste besides what i think was causing some that bitter aftertaste. solid BA PB stout.

This one pours a very dark black color, with a small head, and a little bit of lacing. These all look the same.

This one smells like roasty and rich peanut butter, molasses, coffee, and chocolate fudge.

This one of the best Cycle beers I've had in a bit now - and the first one (I think) they've ever done with peanut butter. Peanut butter and coffee is such a killer combo - they're both roasty, and the sweet nuttiness combines with the sweet and slight fruitiness and nuttiness of the coffee. There's a ton of chocolate, too - making a liquid PB cup dunked into hazelnut cold brew. Delicious.

This is medium bodied, rich and creamy, with a great level of drinkability.

Either this or Monday is the standout of the 2019 Brewgarithm Weekday set. This is just stupid decadent. This isn't quite on the Cycle's Mount Rushmore (Joyous Almond, Cocodamia, Scooop, Tuesday '18, etc) but it's damn close.
