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.here is the description:

Growler at Campdown Brewdown. Deep brune pour. Mocha foam. Nose is powerful caramel and Reese’s peanut butter cups. Taste is weak, watery, slick/buttery. Lemon tea finish with hefty tartness. Gimmicky. Would not consider this imperial stout. Maybe brown ale.
