Inky blackness with a froth of tanned head. Retains for a minute before fading into cloudy retention and a few spots of film.
Nutty, sweet and chocolately in the nose. Peanut butter, berries and soft sweetness with a touch of warmth. Roasted dark malts and breadiness.
Chocolate and cocoa sweetness with roasted peanuts and thick malts. Berries punctuate the profile with a jammy flavor, which creates a pretty tasty interpretation of the PB&J. Not too sweet, not tart from the fruit, but fairly balanced with a thick malt backbone, caramel and toasted bread crust.
Fuller medium body, decent carbonation, sticky and creamy on the tongue. I preferred the Big Gruesome to this, but Spring House created another really fascinating, experimental beer capable of delivering its advertised profile. As far as PB&J beers go, this is better than Short's version, but not quite Funky Buddha's No Crusts.

This is a solidly black beer, capped with a light brown frothy head. The head is long-lived and dense. The aroma is rich...full with roasted grain, a touch of malt, and lots of roasty, burned, and intense notes. There is also a hint of alcohol and peanut...I didn't smell it at first, but it grows through the beer. The taste is balanced, with some alcohol warming. The berries come out more in the taste and are not really present in the smell. Full body.
