BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Spring House Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States
springhousebeer.com

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

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.

Black body with dark brown head and a smattering of lace. Aroma perfectly nails what it's going for: chocolate & peanut butter are awesomely mixed, not one more prominent than the other. I'm a bit disappointed that the flavor is not as intense but it's the best representation of a peanut butter stout that i've come across.

Pours inky black with a thin, dark brown head that leaves a slight foamy collar. Aroma is mainly milk chocolate/cocoa with a noticeable sweet vanilla bean presence and some nuttiness. Flavor is everything the aroma suggests, with a slightly more distinct peanut butter finish. Lots of chocolate malt, a very subtle roasted character, big fresh vanilla flavors and pronounced sweetness. Mouth feel is creamy and smooth, feels like a milk stout. This is a great beer that doesn’t disappoint. The name alone is bold and thankfully the beer lives up to it.
