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.

The beer poured dark. Not quite opaque black, but close. Head was a dark coffee color. I picked up the smell of chocolate. I took a taste. Very nice, though not quite what I expected. I picked up a chocolate cherry flavor, which I did not expect but was pleasant. The peanut butter taste was light, I almost missed it. I heard from long time fans of the beer that last year's batch had a heavier peanut butter taste than this year, so that would explain what I tasted. I noticed a nice roastiness and a little alcohol warmth. (525 characters)
