And then along comes another from Sisyphus, this one a little different.
Sisyphus Peanut Butter Semi-Imperial Stout. 9% ABV. 44 IBU.
Deep and dark, utterly opaque, under a long-lasting, lace-leaving layer of cocoa/tan head. Looking good.
In the nose: sweetness and nuts, with a healthy helping of cocoa. Pleasant peanut butter-y aromatics.
In the mouth: Peanut butter flavor is at the front when the liquid hits the lips, but not as forceful as some may prefer. How do I prefer? Well....The peanut part is playing it mild. It's there, but not very full, and it obscures the other flavors I like to taste in an Imperial Stout, even a Semi-.
However, if you go in without the demand that this be the most peanut-butter-y beer, or the boldest imperial stout, you have a fine, tasty beer. Sometimes, that's good enough. Good peanut butter semi-imperial stout, and guess what you can do? Drink it up.
