on tap at the spring house taproom
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.

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.

Had it on-tap at Spring House Tap Room.
A- Has a nice blue reddish color with meduim head.
S- The smell is good has that berry flavor of jelly and peanut butter in it and has some earthyness from the hops.
T- Well this just went down hill. Not enough berry flavor and the peanut butter doesn't work. This is one that the aroma is way better then the taste.
M- Peanut butter and very little berry flavor didn't last long. It had that lager yeast background that just didn't work for me. Very depressing.
O- This is purely from a home brewer stand point I do not own or professionally brew for a living but I think this would of been good if this was done as a wheat ale or just a american ale.
The taste had a lager background that does not work in my book It need more a fruitty background to get a true berry jelly flavor to compliment the peanut flavor.
The idea is super and in tweaking the recipe maybe bumping more berry flavor and changing the yeast to the ones I mention this beer would be a real treat to drink.
