Similar burnt plastic sweet finish as the coconut. Peanut butter is just a hint and might as well have been nonexistent for all it was overwhelmed by the finish.
Less burnt than I remember from last time, although still just as weak on the peanut butter. This makes a pretty okay smooth imperial porter, although it still felt a little strong on the alcohol and gets a demerit for disappointment on the peanut butter front.
By this point the basic points of VaS are clear: A thick porter with a bitter, highly-roasted finish. This works differently with different flavors; here the peanut butter is a lot less evident than in other PB beers I've had, it's there more as a slightly smooth nuttiness. The rest is just bitterness.
