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.

- Chocolate malt, raw cocoa nibs, aged on whole vanilla and cocoa beans infused with rich peanut butter.

(4.05) A: Viscose oily black exit from the growler into glass one hour after pour. Dark khaki colored head is frothy, at one finger high with a good rate of retention leaving a full sheet coating of lace.

(3.90) S: Nose of rich chocolate, cocoa and peanut butter. Roasted peanuts, coffee, with a good level of awareness, very smooth and polished sense of aroma, followed by a soothing trail of fresh peanut butter.

(4.00) T: Rich coffee-cocoa base, peanut butter and roasty esspresso. Dark, smooth delicious, vanilla bean, milky notes, rich chocolate all blends so smoothly together.

(3.90) M: Oily slick texture, medium bodied with a low level of carbonation.

(4.00) O: the flavor is dark, rich, sweetly roasted with peanut butter that somehow really goes well together and is not a gimmick. A perfect blend and balance, smoothly silky drinkability, wow with every sip. I've had a duclaw peanut butter stout, which i wasn't to impressed with, this one is growler worthy and an easy A rating. gruesome is awesome
