American Double / Imperial Stout |  8.00% ABV

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.

Spring House is such a fun brewery. I love their art work and creativity. Local to me, I've only visited their TapRoom once, but plan on going again. Big Gruesome is one of my favorites they have to offer.

Appearance: Pour with a nice thick, foamy tan head. very nice looking in a snifter.

Smell: Reeses Peanut butter puff's. Peanut butter egg. Easter candy. Sweet. Obviously chocolate and peanut butter

Taste: Not much different from the smell. Like Easter candy. Very sweet, chocolate and peanut butter.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, creamy and thick.

Overall: My favorite Choc/PB stout. Great for dessert, not so much with the main course. Also the first Spring House beer I've tried and what got me interested in their beers in the first place.
