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.

A-Deep copper with a thick light tan head that slowly reduced to a thin cap which left nice swaths of lace.

S-Fresh roasted peanuts up front undercut with backing notes of tart berries. Subtle notes of roasted malt and toasted biscuit in the background.

T-Initial dry roasted peanut flavour that slowly gives way to a mild sweet-tartness from the triple berry combo. (rasp, black and blue IIRC) A touch of light spicy/earthy hops in the finish. This is a fairly impressive flavour combination for a first time attempt.

M-Medium body, fairly sharp with nice lingering flavours throughout. Ends with building hop bitterness.

O-Certainly not on par with the outstanding PBC stout but this is a very interesting and drinkable amber ale. I am impressed with the continued use of the peanut butter and the combination of real berries usage is a nice touch. This brew could stand a bit of tweaking to make it outstanding but a solid first time effort nonetheless!

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Good viscous pour, with a deep deep brown coloring and a light and fleeting head.

The nose is light and tempered but it's got a peanut butter and Reese's peanut butter cup aroma.

The flavor is peanut butter, a quick flash of sweet grape jelly, than a chocolatey malt. It finishes with a raw peanut flavor.

The feel is light and kind of thin especially with how thick it poured.

This is a nice treat, a relatively simple approach and a worthy try.

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

A-dark brown color with a decent tan head and some lacing

S-dark malt, chocolate, peanut butter, hint of sweetness and fruit

T-dark roasted malt, chocolate, peanut butter, berries, hint of coffee

F-medium body with moderate carbonation, smooth and creamy

O-well done, difficult to pull this off, but I applaud this effort and look forward to enjoying it again
