12 oz bottle purchased from Total Wine in Sarasota, FL. Poured into Calusa snifter.
Caramel brown-to-ruby color with a beige or off-white sliver of a head.

Smells like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich alright. White bread, peanut butter, grape jelly. Faintest hint of chocolate.

Dusty grain and grape jelly come first, followed by slight nuts, metal, toffee, and dusty peanut hull.

Feel is crisp but not carbonated enough to overcome the metallic presence in the flavor. Has a somewhat sticky finish.

Overall, a somewhat underwhelming beer to me. I'm used to the caliber of FB like MBCP and Last Buffalo. This isn't up to par with those. I think if they lowered the price a bit and put this in a six pack it would be worth it. But a 4 pack for $15 is extra proud. I'm sure there's a better PB&J beer out there for less money.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a deep brown color with a one-finger foamy off-white head that reduces to a ring around the glass

S- smells exactly like a PB & J sandwich, the peanuts, the fruity jelly, even the bread. FB has a crazy ability to mimic food aromas

T- the 'jelly' is noticed first and almost comes across as a blue raspberry flavor. Mid-palate brings out some roasty nutty flavors, the finish is malty and gives some bready notes. Lingers of more berry flavor

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that continues into the finish

O- aroma was spot on, the taste was more jelly-forward, still a great beer

No date on the bottle, sadly, but I picked this up soon after the release so I’m assuming it’s fresh. Not normally into beers like this but it seemed like a fun novelty. What can I say? It smells exactly like a PB&J sandwich. With the bread and everything. So crazy. Taste is a bit more grape jelly than peanut butter, but the nutty malt is there. Smooth and surprisingly not cloying. This is great!

Jelly taste dominates, next is peanut butter and then a hint of bread. More bitterness than I would expect. Good, I'm glad I got it, don't know if I will get it again.

Strong notes of peanut butter and jelly off the nose. Initial taste more jelly forward with finish of light peanut butter, incredible beer, exactly as advertised.
