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.

Bottle courtesy of mike...thanks so much buddy!

Cola like pour with a touch of lace

Smell is awesome...like someone smashed a peanut butter and jam sandwich in glass and soaked it in chocolate malt.

Peanut butter is present upon the initial sip but segues quickly into grape jam and nuts. Barrel is understated, mellow, and smooth. Grape sweetness lingers while peanut is faint at the edges. Cocoa and nuts edge in as well. Booze kicks in hard on the finish.

Overall, another fun Framinghammer variant and one that I'm thrilled to try, but not my favorite on the bunch. The jelly parts of this are too present while inhibiting some of the finer elements of the base/barrel.
