Sisyphus Safe Lady Peanut Butter Stout

Went to Sisyphus last week in search of Isaac the Fax Man. But there was another new beer on, Safe Lady PB Stout. What the heck? Description on the board (Aka TV screen) read: "Making a peanut butter beer in this town can be Dangerous, Man...." Ah, ha. Dangerous Man, Safe Lady. Okay, Sam, you are now the "Weird Al" Yankovic of local brewing. Don't fight it, embrace it. Keep the puns and parodies coming.

Now, about the beer:

Dark coloring, rich brown head, leaving lace, looking great.

Peanut butter pops right out of the nose. Bam! there it is. Sweet, nutty, creamy, yeah. I like it.

Taste: PB is big in the mouth, too. Chocolate and coffee notes lurk just below. Full body, full, rich mouthfeel. Moderate hop bitterness on the palate. Peanut butter flavor stays on the palate, and never quite leaves. Bitterness adds excellent ballast and balance. Tasty stuff. I can drink this and drink it.

I overheard some commentary and read some online that said "not as good as Dangerous Man's Peanut Butter Porter." I beg to differ. This is superior to that.
