What the brewer says

“Milk, cof­fee, peanut but­ter .... im­pe­rial stout.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Cof­fee up front with peanuts be­hind it. There’s also a faint earthy/ smoke note all backed by roasted malt and choco­late sup­port.” Fla­vor: “Very cof­fee, but more choco­late and roast from the beer come out, and the peanuts are more in­te­grated with the malt. It’s sweet but not overly sweet. The al­co­hol helps bal­ance as well as some hops bit­ter­ness. The fin­ish is smooth.” Over­all: “Rich, deca­dent, creamy, with­out be­ing overly sweet or cloy­ing. The peanut but­ter and cof­fee are re­ally well done. They add nice com­plex­ity but are bal­anced with the base beer. The over­all bal­ance through­out is re­ally well done, the aroma is warm and invit­ing, the beer rich and com­plex, and you’re left with a lin­ger­ing bal­ance of choco­late and peanut but­ter with roast and cof­fee.”
