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.

Pours a dark brown and settles a bit darker. I was thinking I would get a bit more "jelly" or berry flavor because this is labeled a fruit/vegetable beer. The peanut taste is the star here for sure. A lighter mouthful than most stouts but it's very easy drinking. I don't know the price or format because this was a trade beer but I could see myself getting a 6er of this if it were local for a rainy day. Not bad, but not special either

22oz bottle.
Dark thick ale with a rich, well balanced flavor and aromatic profile.
Creamy smooth. Peanut butter lends more of an enticing very nutty note than just one that's specifically pb. Subtle contribution of (grape?) jelly.
Fine, rich, nut bread aftertaste.

Pours a very dark purple, with sapphire tint in direct sunlight, very pretty.

Smells like a PB&J! Boy that smell takes me back, this is straight up peanut butter & jelly!

Tastes just like a PB&J sammich!

Mouthfeel is sticky, but rather thin. Somewhat off putting. I was hoping the peanut butter was more prevalent and thus thicker.

Overall I thought the smell and taste of this are great, but it was rather thin and the liquid jelly-ness I got was slightly off putting.

Pours a hazed, very dark brown with a off white head. A bit of lace is left behind. Aroma is full of peanut, roast, and some berry. Peanut beer has a distinct nutty, malty smell and taste kind of like Nutella.

The taste is full on peanut butter, with a tip of the tongue hop and berry acidity. Roasted malt adds a subtle chocolate, char and coffee flavor. The aftertaste has a bit of the pb&j influence but this is more of a peanut butter stout than anything in the taste. Fair bitterness and slight pine reminds you this is a beer. Full bodied, creamy, a bit sweet. Interesting stuff. A behemoth of taste.
