Picked up at the brewery a few weeks ago, shared with rudzud to continue our peanut butter beer night.

Nice creamy thick 1/2 finger darker colored head fades at a med to slower pace with decent lacing. Pitch black color.

Nose brings tons of stout, dark cocoa and black like malts. Nice jammy berry fruit, lots of oak, toasted oak and raspberry all over, light nutty malt, good cocoa, faint whisky like note.

Taste brings rich creamy dark malts, cocoa all over, chocolate and fudgey dark malts, nice vanilla barrel almost bourbon like flavor, little nutty and caramel. Faint raspberry jam, little jammy raspberry, not really pb&j though. Mild bitterness from the dark malts, little tannin, light nutty note lingering on the finish, more jammy raspberry and creamy chocolate.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, decent carb, booze hidden well.

Overall pretty nice but missing real Peanutbutter, nice raspberry jam and overall base beer with chocolate, etc, but just missing the Peanutbutter.

Thanks to JLindros for the share.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark brown almost black hue with a nice thin mocha head that fades to leave a thin blanket with light lacing.

S - Aromas of Really light nuttiness, awesome raspberry notes, good roast malts, chocolate is nice, good barrel notes almost too oaky. Bourbon is nice, smooth, balanced.

T - Taste is really Framinghammer, great Baltic notes and pleasant bourbon, lots of raspberry, crazy amount, fresh berry, light jam, the raspberry and bourbon play so well together.

M - Mouthfeel is nice, Alcohol hidden well.

O - Overall this beer was just what I expected, though not nearly enough peanut butter. Still, tasty.

Pours black as night with a small khaki head, minimal lacing in the tulip.

Aroma lets you know this has been barrel aged long enough for the bourbon to be a factor, and there is roasty, dark chocolate wrapped jelly candy in the nose. I was looking for more peanut butter infusion in the aroma as achieved by a pair of peanut butter/chocolate infused Porters that I've enjoyed.

The initial flavor is sweet, boozy, and immediately brings to mind the turban wearing caricature on the Joyva brand jelly rings covered in dark chocolate that my Grandparents used to have in the house around the holidays. Dark chocolate jelly rings weren't necessarily that great, or a favorite, nevertheless they were palatable and have a very specific flavor. The flavor of the jelly seems to be of the raspberry variety, just like the candy it reminds me of. The lack of peanut butter presence was disappointing to me despite giving it a chance to warm up as other reviewers have suggested.

Mouthfeel is heavy with a lower level of carbonation. There is a creamy,silky mouthfeel. The booze makes this a sipper.

Enjoyable and unique, but dial up the P, and dial down the J in the mix to make this Baltic Porter what it could be. Still recommended, but a touch let down.

From a bottle, pours a heavy jet black color with a light than head.

The nose is, well surprise, a peanut butter and jelly flavor. Lots of peanut skins, grape jam, a little spice, nutmeg, vanilla and some faint bourbon. The flavor does not live up to the hype of the smell. The jam really dominates, grape jelly, a little sugary, purple drink, vanilla very sweet. The nuts and roast come back in on the back end, but at that point, it's too late to provide balance.

These type of beers are cool and this is a better version of this style, but alot of jelly.
