Notes/Commercial Description:
Creamy, malty, and full-bodied, the Big Gruesome Stout is scary good. The intense, roasty flavor comes from two types of chocolate malt and raw cocoa nibs. The stout is then aged on whole vanilla beans and more raw cocoa nibs to enhance the chocolate flavors. Rich peanut butter is introduced throughout the entire brewing process to make this stout even more Gruesome.

Bottle shared by Curran at his tasting.

Pours a very dark black, with a mocha tan colored head, about one inch, with a lot of lacing in the glass.

Smells like rich, not too sweet peanut butter, dark bitter chocolate, and roasted malt.

This blows Sweet Baby Jesus out of the water. Thick, nutty, rich peanut butter character, with some intense roasted bitterness- roasty nuts and roasty malts. Huge chocolate character as well. At times really has the feeling of drinking liquefied alcoholic peanut butter. This is a good thing!

Thick bodied, rich, smooth, creamy mouthfeel. This one has a pretty low level of carbonation. Very drinkable, ran through 5 oz or so really quick.

This one is great, probably the best peanut butter based beer I've ever had.
