Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: llllDrGONZOllll on 05-06-2011

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.

A - Pours pitch black with a nice creamy dark tan head that has nice retention and laces well.

S - Smells just like peanut butter and nuts.

M - Full in body with light carbonation. The nitro pour gives it a very smooth creamy feel.

T - The beer begins with some light sweetness followed by honest to goodness peanut butter. Dark chocolate rounds out the beer leaving a little bit of chocolate bitterness in the aftertaste.

This was an unexpected surprise. The beer tastes exactly as it's described, a chocolate peanut butter stout, definitely worth seeking out. (565 characters)
