Sampled many times at Stout Fest 2014. Review logged from notes. Apperance is thick, viscous, and black with no light passage and an ever so razor thin collar of head. The nose on this is amazing. What Grey Monday lacked in hazelnut character, this beer more than makes up for. The chocolate nutty quality that makes nutella like crack is almost perfectly captured in the aroma. Huge cocoa notes paired with dry roasty nut qualities, heavy hazelnut, and some creamy vanilla bourbon marshmallow coconut notes to support it. The flavor is a touch boozy like Cthulhu, this booziness is quickly masked by the decadent creamy chocolate and hazelnut notes that linger throughout. It is impressive how well the adjuncts are incorporated into this beer. Mouthfeel is big, not quite as much body as the BCS family, but every bit as much heat and then some. Overall, this beer needs to find its way into bottles. So tasty. I could only imagine the frenzy that would ensure on the trade forums if/when the brewpub bottles this.

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).
