Enjoyed at the brewery on tap. This is yet another beer that I am simply amazed by. How do they get the flavors do transfer so well into the beer? Pours a light brown with a cream head. Nose has peanut butter and strawberry jelly. Taste like I am drink a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Simply amazing what they are doing at Rocky Mountain with these beers.

Thanks to Mike (AgentZero) for another unexpected treat from Colorado. Served in a tulip.

A - A half-finger of off-white foam settles to a thin cap and thick collar, leaving behind spotty lace. Hazy brownish orange body.

S - Toasted grains, roasted peanuts, peanut butter, and a hint of fruity sweetness. Not quite as intense as No Crusts, but still quite enjoyable.

T - Taste is more "jelly" forward than the aroma, with sweet strawberry and other jammy fruits. Finish is a mix of peanut butter and sugar cookies. Pretty on-point for the intended effect, but gets a bit cloying after a few pours.

M - Well, there's more carbonation than Da Yoopers, but it's still at the medium-low level. Otherwise quite similar - medium body, sticky and chewy, with a bit of dry peanut texture as well.

D - Not as drinkable as Da Yoopers, but still fairly enjoyable in moderate quantities. Alcohol is well hidden, and it's a successful "novelty" beer. I'd have one of these if I ever came across it in the future, but I'm more interested in trying some of Rocky Mountain's other offerings first.

A - Pours a dirty pinkish brown color, kind of looks like what you might get if you threw a peanut butter and jelly sandwhich in a blender and watered it down a bit.

S - This smells just like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Strong peanut butter with some nice jelly smell. No Crusts smelled just like a PB&J but somehow I think this may smell even more like a PB&J sandwich. Great stuff.

T - Taste is more jelly, peanut butter is surprisingly a bit of a non-factor. Peanuts come through a little in the middle but have a bit of a raw taste. Some slight tart jelly bite on the end. Good for what it is, but it's not a fantastic tasting beer.

M - Medium bodied, a little bit syrupy, carbonation bite on the end.

O - This delivers on what it is trying to do, and earns marks for that. I don't necessarily love this, but it's an enjoyable experience and worth trying if you like these types of gimmick beers.
