Aroma certainly features some roasted peanut & traces of raspberry to compliment the dark malt and bourbon. Taste is more heavy / bourbony, but the peanut butter is there & works well with the vanilla / caramel of the bourbon though the fruit addition gets lost. Good desert beer.

On tap at 2 Bros. Pours a blackish dark brown with an inch of frothy light brown head. Some lacing. Lots of peanut butter in the aroma with some wheat bread crusts, and raspberry notes. Not getting any of the barrel in the nose. The taste is what the name suggests. Peanut butter and berries, but with some light Bourbon flavor this time. Some espresso and earth, but the peanut butter flavor dominates. Most of the Bourbon is in the background but it's definitely there. Medium body, lightly carbonated with a good deal of alcohol heat. This is a weird beer that warns you by the name what your going to get. I don't dislike it but I probably don't need to have it again. Still, I'm glad I tried it.

dated march 2017. nice looking brew, dark brown pour with a caramel head. no lacing. aromas of dark fruit, really clear raspberry, leather, hint of bourbon, roasted nuttiness. sadly on palate the bourbon comes through not with decadent caramel & vanilla - but rather rubbing alcohol. otherwise the brew is nice, and interesting, but the finish is so astringent and not what I expected after trying the regular barrel aged version and the coconut one. decent mouthfeel, but again the alcohol isn't hidden and the mouthfeel suffers. overall I was really excited for this one, as both of the framinghammer variants Ive tried were awesome - but this just doesn't cut it.

A: Pours a near pitch black color with a fingers worth of head that fades down to pretty much nothing

S: Peanut butter and raspberry up front along with the roasted malt and dark fruits. Some bourbon, vanilla, and oak sneak in there as well

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with roasted malt, peanut butter, raspberries, bourbon, vanilla, and oak. Goes into some dark fruit notes that accentuate the raspberry notes nicely. Moderately sweet. Finishes with lingering peanut, raspberry, and bourbon notes

M: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Nice and smooth without being flat

O: An incredibly well executed PB&J beer with all of the bells and whistles. The peanut butter and raspberries really shine along with the bourbon barrels to make an extremely interesting and unique beer that works great with the base. Highly recommended

2017 vintage

I get some peanut butter and jelly or at least some dark fruit character in the nose and taste. It's not a bad beer at all but I was expecting more barrel and adjunct character.
