3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Pours a flat black body under a small fizzy light brown head thy fell to a thin film. The nose is pretty interesting, a fairly heavy peanut butter note, plenty if roast, and just a bit of grape jelly. The flavor is fairly similar to the Big Gruesome, mostly peanut butter, a light sweetness from the grape on the finish, slightly sweet roastiness at its base. Medium bodied, a light cling to the finish, moderate fizzy carbonation. Pretty interesting beer, not as big of a fan of this one versus the straight peanut butter version or the mint version.

I really didnít notice much difference from Big Gruesome. It had the same peanut and chocolate aroma and flavor. I didnít get the raspberry at all.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black pour with an inch thick tan head and light sticky lacing .... aroma of peanut butter and chocolate .... taste is of bitter chocolate malts, light jam and light peanut butter, the bitterness kind of tones down the whole pbnj feel to it, but the flavors are slightly evident .... finish is dry and chocolatey .... decent

Bottle from the taproom . Pours black with a medium sized brown head. The aroma has plenty of peanut butter and light fruit. The taste has big peanut butter and a bit of raspberry maybe? Cool idea.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle share at Hampton Inn pre-DLD party. Pour is clear dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts and peanuts. Flavor is mostly dominated by peanut butter, roast, and cocoa, but there is a slight jam/fruit sweetness that lingers in the finish.

Very meaty beer. Caramel foam. Mild peanut butter, medium sweetness, and a lot of stout. Slight ice cream on the nose.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma - the aroma is really pleasing. It smells like Peanut Butter Cap N Crunch. There is simply no other way to describe it. The jelly aspect of the PB&J doesnít show up, but itís a great aroma, nonetheless.
Appearance - Itís a very dark brew, with a slight off-white head. There isnít much head. Itís the only part where it could of been better.
Taste - very malty, very nutty, there is a semi-sweetness to it. When you swallow it, you get the faintest touch of jam on the front of your tongue. Itís small, but itís there. Really pleasant experience.
Palate - itís a very rich, very smooth beer. Real creamy.
Overall impressions - I need more. Itís way better than what I imagined it would be. Itís one of the best beer experiences Iíve had. Hope there is more available.
