Bottled 3/13/207. 16.9oz bottled poured into tulip. Just about black pour, no light comes thru. Almost a finger of cappuccino colored head.

Trying to let it warm up a bit but I do get a pb&j essence. Light peanuts, not pb, but bigger raspberries. Some crusty bread too? Probably my subconscious picturing a pb&j sandwich

Taste leaves a lot to be desired. Peanuts, chocolate and vanilla and an overpowering amount of tart raspberries. I don’t get a whole lot of bourbon or booze for that matter.

The body needs to be bigger, the carbonation to be less as well. This beer is a bit of a disappointment to me, I’ve hyped myself up for it. Maybe it’s bigger and better fresh. I received in a BIF around October, at this point it’s 10 months old. I’d be willing to give it another go with a fresher bottle.

500 ml bottle, dated 3/13/17, poured into a tulip

A- Black with a two finger mocha head.

S- Chocolate, some mildly tart raspberries, bourbon, roasted peanuts.

T- Chocolate, roasted malts, raspberries, roasted peanuts, some bourbon.

M- Smooth, medium to full body.

O- Love the raspberries in this, they are nicely balanced with the porter. Definitely something I would pick up again given the chance!

Poured from a 16.9oz bottle (B.O.D 13 March 2017) into an 10oz Libbey snifter glass.

A - Pours nearly black with some mahogany highlights at the edges of the glass. The head was a minimal (expected due to the peanut adjunct)...pinky finger at best with very little retention. What did develop was a rocky and the color of a coffee-with-cream. (3.5)

S - Nothing outstanding. Roasted Peanuts, Chocolate and perhaps a faint whiff of Oak. Sadly, there was absolutely no hint of Raspberry...perhaps it was more prevalent within the first few weeks of bottling. If so, it has faded completely. No hint of the 10% ABV. (3.5)

T - Roasted Peanuts, Chocolate with a slight reminder of it spending time in Bourbon Barrels (char and Bourbon). Once letting it warm up to Room Temperature, there is what might be considered to be a ghost-like reminder of the raspberry, but that might just simple be power of suggestion. Like the nose, this is a bit one dimensional. (3.5)

M - Despite the 10% ABV, the body falls on the lighter side of Medium with conservative carbonation making it supremely drinkable. It finishes dry with a mild charred bitterness. Once at Room Temperature, there is a hint of alcohol warmth in the throat. (3.75)

O - Being a fan of BBA Framinghammer and its variants (specifically Coffee and Vanilla), this was a disappointment. The $10 price point for these BA beers from Jack's Abby are reasonable but with no raspberry in the aroma or flavor and lack of barrel influence, this is my least favorite of the series. However, this could very well have been much more impactful fresh...do not age! (3.25)

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.
