Pours a opaque deep brown with a medium brown head leaving lacing. Nose is dark chocolate and coffee but no peanuts. Taste is chocolate with slight coffee. Body is medium. Bitterness is in the aftertaste in balance with the malts. Good beer but no discernible peanuts. Half liter bottle ABV: 9.5% not 10% as in the escription Berard (639) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 25, 2016

pours pitch black with a medium mocha head. aroma has burnt bittdrness and roastiness, caramel, toffee. flavor has lots of dark chocolate, bold roastiness, subtle dark fruits, hints of caramel and toffee...not much in the way of peanuts or peanut butter. mouthfeel is medium and creamy with a roasty and dry very dark chocolate finish that lingers nicely. a nice impy stout...very tasty...i just don’t find much in the way of peanut. mcox90 (2119) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 6, 2013
22 oz bottle, cellared for a year, give or take. Pours dark brown, almost black with a thick 2 finger mocha head that just wouldn’t quit. Head finally dissipates with any lace. Lots of peanut butter and chocolate on the nose. Very inviting. Sweet flavor with a light peanut taste and a bit of chocolate. Sweetness is kept from running amok by a dose of earthy, grassy hops. Palate is a bit of a disappointment. Just to thin for this style of beer. Over all, an decent beer, but the mouthfeel needs to be improved. msnelling09 (154) - Beverly, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 4, 2013
The beer pours a nice, midnight black with no light coming through. It pours with a head of tiny bubbles the color of a nice sandy khaki, bordering on orange. The head is a light scrim but still has a little height to it, and it leaves lines of thin and droopy lacing along the glass. The beer’s body is completely indistinguishable due to the beer’s dark coloring. On the nose, the beer smells of deep roasty peanuts with a nice touch of chocolate. The peanut smell is tremendously strong, tipping briefly into vegetal notes with touches of briny salt. It’s not the best smell right as it hits your nostrils, but as you smell further it becomes quite inviting. On the tongue the beer tastes chocolate sweet with a roasty bitter balance to the beer, and some slight saltiness from the peanuts. In flavor, the beer begins as sweet chocolate, which is immediately muscled aside by rich, homemade peanut butter flavors. I say homemade because the actually nutty flavor of the peanuts is beautifully present beside the richer flavors of cream. Salt and touches of herbal grass are also present on the tongue, but the peanuts are the main flavor here, and they are gracefully blanketed by a light flavor of milk chocolate. The finish is big peanuts, salt, and then a lingering creamy chocolate flavor that creates the aftertaste. In the mouth, the beer feels thick and creamy in body with a nice chewy mouthfeel and a soft, velvety carbonation with just a light bite. The mouth is left wet, but peanut dry on the very middle of the tongue. My only complaint is that I want this beer a little thicker. Overall, this is a hell of a unique beer. A peanut lovers’ beer for sure, with enough chocolate to interest the Reese’s lovers, too. It makes a great dessert beer, and would probably pair beautifully with vanilla ice cream. This is a beer for dessert, so don’t go trying to session it. Definitely a beer to try, and a great beer from Throwback.

22 oz. bottle from the Brewery. Peanut husk after a freshly cracked nut. The mouthfeel is a little thin yet , I will give it points on the unique factor. Coco powder, big time peanuts with a lot of peanut skins. This could be improved with some oat meal flakes for thickness. Needs more roasted barley.My biggest compliant is the body. Really needs more body. But as I sip it it kind of really grows on me. The peanut is a major influence no what. j12601 (13033) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Pouring at the Saturday sessions of Extreme Beerfest. Pours a clear brown to black with a bit of a ruby tinge to it under a thin tanned beige head. Big peanut butter, sticky caramel. Chocolate, peanut butter and cocoa. Toast, roast, chocolate, long cool roast. Starts off very nicely, but falls a tiny bit along the way. jtclockwork (17100) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 19, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2014 Bottle thanks to PhatDog1. Pours black with tan head. Nose is mostly peanuts - shells and all- and organic peanut butter with some cocoa, roasted chocolate and toasted black malt. Body is on the lighter side of medium for the style. Dry roasted peanut finish. Nose and taste is over 90% peanut. The most peanut forward beer I’ve ever had. Overall, I really enjoyed drinking this beer. If the body were a little thicker and the roasted chocolate malts were more pronounced this would be a real winner.
That said, while I only rated this a 3.6, I’d rather drink it than a lot of imperials that I’ve rated a 3.8/3.9, so I definitely recommend this. Ratman197 (15216) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 9, 2012
