NO CRUSTS Peanut Butter & Jelly Brown Ale
I recently saw Funky Buddha's NO CRUSTS Peanut Butter & Jelly Brown Ale on the local liquor store shelves. I've had it at the brewery but decided this bottle needed a new home.
The label art is great. In kind of a barber-shop type setting, the peanut barber gives the bread a crust cut. I think the peanut's bicep tattoo is the artist's name, but I lost my magnifying glass to say for sure the name. 6.4% alcohol. 36 IBU.
Chocolate aroma with some jelly and jam. VERY Interesting flavors! A nice choco-brown ale in the background supports the rest of the flavors. A fruity, strawberry jam-like burst comes at the beginning of each sip. The brown ale cocoa washes that away then a distinct wave of peanut butter flavors crazily comes in the finish.
Not sweet, medium body, definitely delivers on its name. A classic from Funky Buddha!
