Reviewing the Nutulhu from the Goose Island Beer Company out of Chicago, Illinois. This beer is Cthulhu with toasted hazelnuts and vanilla beans.

Score: 94

Tap pour served in mini-nonic Stoutfest 2014 pint glass. Review is a hybrid of notes taken on 03/29/14 (Stoutfest) and 05/13/14 (Goose Island's 26th Anniversary Party). Review is from iPhone notes.

Appearance: Cola syrup color. Minimal head, no lacing. Oily legs, nice browning. 4/5

Smell: Hazelnut, syrup, peanut butter and chocolate. A hint of vanilla, ample fudginess as it warms. A kiss of alcohol, but no real bourbon character here. Lots of peanut butter and fudge and hazelnut. 4.25/5

Taste: Tastes like a hazelnut Reese's Peanut Buttercup. Fudgey chocolate, peanut butter and hazelnut, all in a big, lasting way. Faint booziness. No vanilla. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus bodied, low carbonation. Oily mouthfeel, dry finish. Sweet, but not cloying. A little boozy on the finish. 3.75/5

Overall: A really nice brew that could use a little more body. This is a hazelnut-infused Reese's Peanut Buttercup in a glass.

Cost: Unknown (both events had the pours included as part of the ticket price).

Served in a sampler glass at Stout fest 2014.

This is without a doubt the best beer I've ever had. I don't know how they were able to lock down the flavor of Nutella and bourbon oatmeal stout so well, but whatever magic they used worked.
I kept coming back to this beer the entire festival.

I'd very literally drink this one beer again and again until the end of time... its such a shame they will probably never make another.
