Flavor: subtle jelly (grape?) and slightly more apparent PB mix well with BBL effects and dark malts. Good complexity and (about even) bitter/sweet balance.

Well hidden ABV - drinks like 7-8% ABV and alcohol esters contribute positively to the overal flavor.

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.

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.
