Outlier. Pretty noticeable alcohol and I did't get any peanut butter. A little berry flavor late. My least favorite of the framinghammers. Still really good, just more of a J than a PB&J.

16.9 oz bottle poured into snifter

A: completely black in appearance had a pretty good head but it disappeared before it could say goodbye

S: bourbon mostly and I want to say jam but is that my mind because of the bottle no there is some sweet currant smells maybe cherries maybe raspberry

T: holy shit this beer is extraordinary you get some bourbon then this jammy Berry taste and then this like thick taste afterwards I want to say peanut butter but I'm not quite getting it

M: This beer is lush and very layered the way it lays on the tongue

O: This beer is one of a kind. I know there are a lot of PB&J beers this doesn't have much peanut butter but the awesome jam taste and the bourbon crank this beer to another level.

Appearance: pours a deep mahogany with a purplish hue coming in around the edges. small tannish head with weak retention and a slight lacing. opaque through the middle but purplish bright hues on the edges.

Smell: peanut butter and grape jelly, and some chocolate and roasted malts.

Taste: opens with syrupy, sweet grape jelly. strong peanut butter nuttiness. chocolate and roastiness. some bourbon.

Mouthfeel: cloyingly sweet and syrup.

Overall: the gimmicky one of the framinghammer and easily the worst of the bunch. strong artificial fruitiness and over sweetness make this beer almost undrinkable.

Appropriate name, and the PB&J is there, but just not my cup of tea...

Grape jelly all the way. Sadly, I'm not a fan of grape jelly.

Half liter bottle poured into an Odell snifter. Bottled on date of June 12, 2014.

Creamy yet wispy oatmeal-colored head that quickly dissipates. Lace forms over the body in clumps of bubbles. The liquid was semi-viscous and dark brown on the pour, but it sits in the glass looking a like a rich stout. 4.25

Smells of boozy chocolate, vanilla and raisins. There seems to be a barleywine-like aroma there, deep sticky caramel lingers in my nostril piece. Sweet fruity notes are buried at first, but become more and more noticeable and evoke jelly. Peanut butter notes eventually make a quiet appearance. 4.5

Man this beer is interesting. There's definitely a boozy element too it and barrel character is pronounced giving off some major oakiness, but a number of other flavors manage to punch through. Grape notes like those in a barleywine and a smooth nuttiness do show up, accompanied by a good dose of vanilla, that then get a bit mangled by solventy booze flavor. 3

The booze simply overwhelms this beer. It's overly hot and solvent-like. It reminds me of drinking a shot of cheap vodka almost. There's a creamy body and the carbonation seems just right but neither of these can overcome the heat. 2

Sad stuff. I really was looking forward to this beer but I can't hardly drink it. I keep hoping some warmth will aid its drinkability but it seems hopeless after a solid half hour or so.

poured bottle into chalice. Bottled June of 2014.

A - Very dark brown/black with a 1.5 finger mocha head that fades to thin ring. Only a few spots of lacing on the glass.

S - Bourbon is noticeable with the Baltic porter. Hints of cocoa and vanilla yield to peanut aromas and some berry jam notes.

T - Starts off with the Baltic Porter and moves into bourbon, vanilla, and cocoa. Nuttiness in the middle along with some berry jam notes. A bit of alcohol heat on the finish

M - Heavy body with a creamy carbonated feel. A bit too much heat on the finish.

O - This was pretty good and I waited 6 months. It could have used another 6 months to temper the BB flavor.

Very smooth and Jammy. The Porter roast compliments the jelly.
