Imperial Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter
Pale, Cara Munich, Chocolate, Black, Flaked Oats
There is only one thing people should think of with the name of this beer.
The song that used to end the TV show is titled For Pete's Sake.
Micky Dolenz. He was on a TV show before the Monkees.
He was Corky on Circus Boy.
A book tie in for the show.
Michael Nesmith. His mother is known as inventing an office supply quite a few people have probably used in their life.
His mother invented Liquid Paper.
After the Monkees, Jones was on an episode of the Brady Bunch.
What was the name of the song that he sang on the episode?
The answer would be Girl.
Before the Monkees, Davy Jones was on an Ed Sullivan show. Performing as the Artful Dodger from Oliver!
The show he was on is best remembered for another reason.
On that show, a rather obscure group was on. Who ever heard of the Beatles? I don't think they took off. It's not like their songs are played on radio or anything. Hmmm.... Whatever became of them?
For Pete's Sake is the Imperial version of Sweet Baby Jesus. That one was a little too sweet for my liking. I couldn't drink too much of it in one sitting.
Do love Imperial stouts and basically any kind of Imperial beers. Wondered if For Pete's Sake would be just as sweet as Sweet Baby Jesus. Figured there would be a bigger alcohol presence. 9% compared to 6.2% for Sweet Baby Jesus. It also has a slightly higher IBU rating as well. 45 IBU compared to 33 IBU.
Poured with a rather nice head. Aroma has quite a bit of chocolate to it. Some light peanut butter as well. Also there is plenty of alcohol in the nose. Taste starts off with plenty of chocolate. Finishes off with an odd tasting peanut butter like taste. Kind of odd. Alcohol is noticeable. Some nice roasted malts. Basically the Sweet Baby Jesus with more alcohol. As with that one, I could not drink a ton of For Pete's Sake in one sitting. Rated it 3.5 out of 5 on Untappd. That rating might be a tad generous. If I had a bigger sweet tooth, I think I would get more out the beer that what i'm getting. More for the sweets people.
