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.

Sampled a cellar temp bottle poured into a snifter. Purchased the beer on a recent trip to PA.

The beer pours a deep dark chocolate hue with brown frothy head of 2-3 cm foaming up. The head is tightly packed and fades to an edge layer with 1 large wispy island in the center of the beer.
Aroma is dry cocoa and dark chocolate, with a little sweet malt mixed in and with dry roasted peanut notes in the background. Not so much peanut butter as the whole nut.

The first sip reveals a fairly thick body with soft rolling carbonation. Texture is silky smooth and the beer drinks very easy.

Flavor is roasted malt and chocolate bar with hints of brown sugar and a little peanut butter. Generally a malt forward beer with a little roasted dryness on the finish. I dont get any booze or hops in the drinking.

An interesting beer and the peanut butter isnt as strong as I feared upon buying the bottle. The nose is pleasant and nutty aromas are nice. Not too much on the flavor and an enjoyable beer overall. (1,004 characters)
