Notes/Commercial Description:
Lil' G is not intimidated by his larger counter-part, Big Gruesome. An extremely rich and complex beer, the addition of raspberries during the fermentation process results in an reddish opaque color with nice chocolate notes. Like the Big G, rich peanut butter is introduced throughout the entire brewing process to make this stout even more Gruesome.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours black with ruby highlights at the edge; a bit of a bubble show creates a tan head; a few strands of lace linger

Smell: Each whiff detects another aspect of the PB&J; I can't get them together at one time, but the bread, peanut butter and jelly are all there

Taste: Peanut butter, up front, with the jelly quickly arriving; the two flavors congeal through the middle; after the swallow, there is a hint of burnt toast and nutskin bitterness

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A gimmick beer, for sure, but a well executed gimmick; been a while since I had No Crusts, but this is not far behind

Thanks, justanewby, for the opportunity

notes from 6/18/2014 visit to the tasting room...
looks the same as big gruesome, black as night. nose on this one was fairly muted peanut butter. the jelly shows itself on the flavor. the combo of the jelly with the peanut butter is certainly interesting, but it works in this beer. definitely not as good as it's big counterpart, but i still nabbed a bottle for a closer look at home and found the bottle to be the same...good, not great.
