Voodoo (347) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Pours an inky black with a dense light brown head which lingers. Aroma is predominantly peanuts, or peanut butter, chocolate, even a bread note. Taste is peanut, coffee, chocolate, slight ending sweetnes with a medium mouthfeel. Interesting offering.

jkwood04 (4155) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 7, 2014
22oz bottle in a teku. Pours near black with a beige head. Aroma of grape jelly, some roasted malts, light nuttiness, some chocolate, and some dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything, but there’s a lot of jelly in this beer. Average texture. A really cool beer.

daknole (9437) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Rich dark brown pour, medium brown head. I get some peanuts and maybe a hint of a dark fruit....but not really getting much that reminds me of a PB&J. Pretty ok I suppose though.

Transfer from BA review on 2-11-14- Poured from bottle into a snifter Appearance – The beer pours a deep –deep brown color bordering on black with some tints of a reddish color seen within. Upon pouring there is a one finger head of a cream color atop the brew. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading to leave a great level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is huge of a sweet chocolate peanut butter cup smell mixed with lots of grape jam aromas. Along with these sweet smells are some aromas of a nice roasted malt smell and a moderately bready smell. Man this one smells just like someone took a Reese peanut butter cup and smeared grape jam on it with some bready aromas. Maybe more like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with some chocolate spread. Any which way, it smalls delicious. Taste – The taste begins with roasted malt flavor with some lightly sweeter flavors of grape upfront. Some bready flavors and a bit of coffee come to the tongue initially after the front of the taste bringing some bitterness to the brew. As the flavor moves on, the fruit grape jam flavor starts taking on some more tannin like flavors with it mixing with the bitter coffee in a not so pleasant way. A little bit of peanut flavor comes to the tongue at the end of the taste mixing with the bitter and the roast to leave a somewhat fruity but dry, odd bitter flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the average to slightly thinner side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side. A thicker body would have been nicer for the roasted and chocolate flavors of the brew while a lower carbonation would have again accentuated the darker flavors a bit more balancing out some of the jam flavors better. Overall – The brew was an interesting try, but I was hoping for something with a bit more chocolate and a bit less tannin jam flavor. Not even closely living up to the taste of Big Gruesome (which is very nice) and just like the former lacking in feel, but fantastic in look and smell. Worth a try, but overall I will stick with the “Big Gruesome” version over this as this is just too off in the taste profile.

Draft. Dark stout similar to the peanut butter, but softened by a little sweetness from the "jelly". Better than others of his style.

zach8270 (3582) - Henrietta, New York, USA - SEP 24, 2014
(bottle - 22 oz) Dark brown with a puffy tan head. Light roast aroma with a good amount of fruit sweetness. Flavor is a lot less peanut butter than the Big Gruesome, but has a very nice fruity jelly-like finish. Rather enjoyable.

Bomber. Honestly better than I was expecting. You do get plenty of peanuts on the nose and taste along with some fruitiness. I have had far worse gimmicky beers than this one.

Shared by JCB. Dark black pour with one finger of tan head. Peanut butter and roast with a moderate sweetness in the aroma. Toasted nuts and roast in the flavor, peanuty with some earthy notes. Medium bodied.

Not as good as its big brother, but still uniquely Spring House and good. Slight sweet for the jelly. Touch of nutty for the peanut.
