A collaboration between Northern Monk & street muralists Nomad Clan & also brewed with Against the Grain brewery from Louisville, Kentucky; Peanut Butter & Jelly is a 7% ABV brown ale.
Another purchase from Westhill Service Station; this is a brown ale that has been brewed with what Northern Monk describe as a gargantuan mass of peanut butter and balanced by fruity accents of strawberry and raspberry jellies.
Cracking open the can & pouring into a glass, you are immediately hit with the smell of peanut butter - which is by no means a bad thing! Pouring a murky brown colour, the beer produces a large off white foamy head. On taste, it is exactly as you imagine - peanut butter & jelly! There is also hints of chocolate & caramel in there that you quite often find in brown ales. Northern Monk have really nailed the flavour they were trying to achieve here...this is some excellent work!
Hailing from Leeds, Yorkshire - Northern Monk are a brewery that I have yet to try much from. However, the few beers that I have tried have all been extremely enjoyable, and I look forward to trying more. Peanut Butter & Jelly Brown Ale gets the thumbs up from me, do yourself a favour & give it a go if you see it 🍻
