Availability: Rotating

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.

From a bottle, pours a dark brown, soft light brown head, very thin looking, but good carbonation.

The nose is peanut butter, a little berry jam, milk chocolate, and a little hazelnut. This makes me think of a Nutella and jam sandwich. The flavor is roasty, a little alcohol, nutty, peanut butter cup, cocoa and just a fain barrel, a little oak and vanilla. This is pretty well balanced. These beers are now a thing to do, some are disasters, but this is a pretty good one.

Pours a very dark brown, thick, and very rich with a nice caramel tinged one finger head.

Very strong wafts of chocolaty peanut butter all day! Very sweet and inviting.

Tastes like a peanut butter cup! Rich milk chocolate, peanut butter, and booze to cut through the sweet goes down easy.

Mouthfeel is silky and lush, a very smooth dessert brew.

Overall this is a fantastic Imperial Stout with a very balance. Delicious!
