Check the forecast, down a cup of coffee, grab your backpack and pack something special to enjoy later on. Might we suggest this bottle? It is Thursday, after all. PB & Thursday – a peanutty variant of Black Tuesday. It won’t stick to the roof of your mouth, but it will impart layers of peanut butter character and bourbon-laced fudge notes to our storied imperial stout.

2016 edition. Poured from a 750mL bottle into a Bruery tulip glass. Acquired in a trade.
Pours a surprisingly lighter-brown body on the pour, but once in the glass it’s pretty opaque black. Not as thick and viscous as other stouts, presumably due to the high ABV. Quite fizzy on the pour, leaves no lacing or retention.
Aromas are strong and boozy, lots of whiskey, chocolate, caramel, sweet toffee, maybe a light peanut butter aroma in the background.
On the tongue.. it starts off quite sweet giving way to chocolate syrup, sweet, sugary caramel, light coffee, maybe a tad bit of peanuts on the follow through, finishing roasty with maybe some coffee notes.
Mouthfeel is not as thick as I would expect, as the appearance hinted towards, it’s pretty carbonated for a 19.8% stout. I feel like there’s more whiskey than beer in here.
Interesting.. I’ve like all the black tuesday variants, and I’m not going to say I dislike this one, but it’s a bit unbalanced and not as advertised. Would have liked a lot more peanut butter and less whiskey.
