PBJ = pale, biscuit, jelly - a dark Belgian ale brewed with a mixed berry jelly from Imladris Farm

a: poured gently from the growler, producing a low, spotty head, the beer a deep brown in color, with some hints at darker red/purple hues

s: big sweet, nutty malt nose with a range of dark, dried berries, raisin, plum, warm grain bread, brown sugars, earthy hops, subtle glimpses of yeast influence, rich nose

m: carb'ed on the low end of the moderate range, a little prickly on the tongue, body around moderate with a slight sugary slickness

t: opens with sweet nutty breads and dried, leathery berries, plum and raisin, toasty biscuit malt with a crisp pale malt backing, nutty and grainy, slight yeast flavors, moderately sweet with a range of dark fruit flavors but no single distinct variety, mildly hopped, sweetness runs near the very end before turning to dry, leathery fruit skin

o: a tasty, fairly unique beer, the jam adds an enjoyable, complex sweetness that compliments the nutty bread of the biscuit malt well - to be fair, it's the suggestion of the berries that leads to their identification...I'd likely have not picked up on them without knowledge of their presence

growler from the brewpub consumed alongside the French Broad River
