BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Spring House Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States
springhousebeer.com

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Lil' G is not intimidated by his larger counter-part, Big Gruesome. An extremely rich and complex beer, the addition of raspberries during the fermentation process results in an reddish opaque color with nice chocolate notes. Like the Big G, rich peanut butter is introduced throughout the entire brewing process to make this stout even more Gruesome.

Appearance is a dark brown color with a finger of tan head that took dissipated steadily but slowly. The nose had some roast but not much else. The most prominent flavor upfront is not the alleged peanut butter or jelly, but rather chocolate. There is some essence of peanut butter on the finish.

I generally like Spring House offerings, but I must confess that they border on gimmicky. This one is no different.

22oz bottle.
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.
