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.

bomber split between tulips. acquired at their Lancaster, PA taphouse. no bottled on date.

A: pours a very dark brown. pretty opaque. head is brownish/white and is frothy. good retention and clumpy lacing.

S: definitely smells like peanut butter, which is certainly not a usual aroma in beer. bitter chocolate. dry.

T: there is a lot going on here. a rich oat/toast flavor backs the more intense flavors that include chocolate, coffee, peanut butter, even some vanilla. bitter, but not too much. not getting a hint of heat or any hop character, however im sure that was not their intention.

M: a slightly subtle carb on a full body.

D: pretty enjoyable brew. lives up to the name/description on the label. a lot of peanut butter and a lot of chocolate. if you are a fan of the unconventional when it comes to beer, this is definitely worth seeking out.

Interesting brew...black in color with a thick dark brown head. The smell is intense, chocolate, malt, highly roasted grain, and an espresso-like scent. The peanut butter is definitely present....it comes out after the first sips, mainly in the aroma. It adds to the richness of the stout. The taste is drier than expected...not at all oily. Slight bitterness in the aftertaste and a very creamy body. Nice.
