The nose of this snack-tastic Barrel-aged Imperial Stout brings you immediately to the candy aisle with aromas roasted peanuts, milk chocolate, toffee and vanilla beans all vying for attention. On the palate, roasted peanut flavors become rich peanut butter notes, with caramel, molasses, pretzel bread and almond nougat all coming to mind as the beer coats the tongue. A soft roastiness, moderate carbonation and the slightest hint of salinity help cut through the beer’s lingering sweetness and leave you wanting to return to the proverbial candy bowl.
