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.here is the deScription:

Deep and dark with a thin tan head. Punchy, thin at first. But it builds some thickness as it reaches the peanut flavor. Hints of cocoa, coffee, and cherry.

Delicious and complex imperial stout. The aroma and flavor were both complex and dominated by roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Thick and chewy. The finish brought out even more flavors. Vanilla and sweer grains with just a hint of bitter dark chocolate. Good carbonation. Nice beer

Can to shaker glass, pours pitch black. Small light tan head, minimal lacing and retention. Smells like a Reeseís peanut butter cup. Taste is sweet without being cloying, nice bitterness in the background. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, silky mouth feel. Finishes long. Tasting notes of chocolate, peanut butter, oak, vanilla, dark roasted malt and tree nuts. I didnít think I would like this but I was wrong! A very tasty local offering.

Bottle. Poured a hazy brown color with a medium foamy tan head. Aromas of peanut butter and chocolate hit the nose. Flavor was peanut butter, chocolate, vanilla, and some wood notes. Full body, creamy texture, average carbonation, easy finish. Very good PB beer.

Gurthnar (5031) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle shared by Matthew Wirtz, thanks! Quite straightforward in aroma, with lots of peanut and chocolate. However the flavour has an unexpected hoppy twist of moderate intensity - remains under peanut and roast, but discernible with a fruity and grassy flavour. Moderate body, well attenuated. I love these peanut beers.

Pours a pitch black body. Head is 1/5th of an inch and beige in color. Head retention and lacing are above average. Smell is pure peanut butter and milk chocolate. Seriously smells like someone blended a bag of reeses peanut butter cups into a stout. Tons of sweetness present, alcohol and hops not detected. Taste is similar to smell, rich peanut butter first, sweet milk chocolate next, finishes with some burnt malt, almost coffee like. Hops and alcohol arenít present, drinks very smooth for 8% alcohol. Mouthfeel is somewhat light for a peanut butter stout, carbonation levels were good. Wish the head was thicker. Overall, really enjoyed this beer. Best peanut butter beer Iíve had. If it had a bigger body, that would really make it world class.
