Pitch black color. Light brown head. Slightly sour nose with tons of peanut butter and dark chocolate and nice whiskey notes. Mouth is medium full body, a bit too much whiskey up front, but nice dark chocolate and peanut butter in the finish.

Black with a tan head. Aroma has infection upfront, tartness and a light funk ahead of chocolate, nutty notes and cola. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and light to light moderate sour. Light full bodied with light moderate carbonation. Disappointing it’s infected. It’s not entirely ruined but it’s certainly not what it should be.

0.65 l bottle from 'Ace Drinks', 2019 vintage, release #6 at 12.7% abv, brewed in Colorado but counts as a Utah tick. Pitch black with a thin, frothy, almost stable, light brown head. Intensely sweetish-malty, gently roasty and a little boozy aroma of dark chocolate, mocca, caramel, hazelnut and maybe some peanut butter with a touch of whisky. Very sweet, malty, gently roasty taste of mocca, dark chocolate, caramel, hazelnut, some whisky and hints of dark fruits, followed by a long, quite roasty-bitter, minimally boozy finish. Full body, smooth and slightly oily mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. A beast of a Stout, really intense and heavy, quite well-balanced even if very sweet with nicely subtle whisky flavours. Don't really get the peanuts but it's super tasty anyway.

Deep brown with a small light brown head. Coffee and nice rich chocolate notes. Roast peanut, ooze, barrel and coffee, awesome.

Dark brown pour with a tall tan head. Huge coffee notes, followed by cacao nibs, chocolate, roasted malts. No peanut butter notes (which I don't mind), but does have a roasted nut flavour to it. A bit more unbalanced, compared to Big Bad Baptist version, but still pretty damn nice.

Tap at Imazato. Black and shiny, flat. Nose is something like a peanut butter fart, with chocolate, raisins. Sweet, butty, salty, ok. doesn't really work at all.

Bottle at anti-carnavalstasting 2020. Pitch black color. Fortunately I don't get peanut butter. Very nice imperial stout. I like it!

22 ounce bottle into snifter; release #1, bottled in 10/2019. Pours dense opaque dark brown/black color with a 1 finger dense and rocky tan head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, dark roasted coffee, peanuts, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, whiskey, toasted oak, biscuit, and dark bread/crust; with lighter notes of coconut, molasses, licorice, raisin, fig, date, smoke, char, herbal, grass, pepper, pine, and yeast/roast/toast/oaky earthiness. Mild booze in the aromas as it warms, but not overwhelming. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/black/roast/bready malts, cocoa, coffee, peanuts, whiskey barrels, and light earthy hops/fruity yeast notes; with big strength. Taste of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, dark roasted coffee, peanuts, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, whiskey, toasted oak, biscuit, and dark bread/crust; with lighter notes of coconut, molasses, licorice, raisin, fig, date, smoke, char, herbal, grass, pepper, pine, and yeast/roast/toast/oaky earthiness. Light pine, herbal, woody, peppery, roast, charred, coffee bitterness; and whiskey/oak tannin spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, dark roasted coffee, peanuts, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, whiskey, toasted oak, biscuit, dark bread/crust, molasses, licorice, dark fruit, smoke, char, herbal, grass, pepper, pine, and yeast/roast/toast/oaky earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/black/roast/bready malts, cocoa, coffee, peanuts, whiskey barrels, and light earthy hops/fruity yeast flavors; with an awesome roast/hop bitter/sweet and whiskey/oak spiciness; with no cloying/acrid/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering hop/char bitterness and whiskey/oak spiciness. Light-medium carbonation and fairly full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/velvety/bready, fairly sticky/chalky/tannic, and lightly slick moutnfeel that is great. Mildly increasing warmth of 10.9%, with minimal lingering barrel booze after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic flavored barrel aged imperial stout. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/black/roast/bready malts, cocoa, coffee, peanuts, whiskey barrels, and light earthy hops/fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to sip on for the huge ABV, with the mellowly bitter/tannic/drying finish. Great soft/silky feel, and not overly bitter/tannic. Fantastic balance of super rich malts, peanuts, fruity/nutty coffee, cocoa nibs, and whiskey barrel presence/integration. Solid earthy hops and restrained fruity yeast. Light residual sweetness with lingering bitter/tannic dryness. A highly enjoyable offering, and outstanding style example. Right on par with the other new variants so far. Wish there was a stronger peanut butter-like intensity, but still adequate.
