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:

Pours black with an aroma of chocolate & peanut butter (not one more prominent than the other); smells just like a Reeceís cup. This us the best peanut butter stout that iíve come across; better than sweet baby Jesus

Aroma - aroma is the 1st thing that hits you. Itís peanut shells, peanut butter, mashmallow and chocolate powder mix. Smells awesome. Appearance - color is a black body, opaque body, and with nice off-white tan head about 1" high slithers down the glass. Taste - off the charts. Tastes exactly what itís advertised to be. Nutty, chocolate, some bitters in there, a little alcohol Feel - body is full, the texture creamy and thick, the carbonation is soft, the finish long and nutty Awesome stuff!!! Absolutely a must try.

Great share at Pegs, thanks to whomever brought it! Love the mix of peanut butter, vanillia, fudge, dark chocolate, malted milk balls, light roast, hints of coffee. Yum.

Chalsk (1104) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2014
On tap at Capones. Pours a black color with nice thick tan head. Aroma of peanut butter, chocolate, vanilla, roast and earthiness. Sweet coffee spice start with plenty of chocolate and peanut butter throughout and vanilla on the back end. Starts rugged in texture but the vanilla smoothes out the back end. Really tasty. Complex.

This was poured into a tulip. The appearance had a dark brown close to black color with a slim fingerís worth of off white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds. Stringy lacing glosses along the sides of the glass. The smell was decadent peanut butter chocolate, pure and luscious in every sort of aspect. The taste was definitely more Imperial stout as the peanut butter was there but more scaled back. I didnít mind so much. The aftertaste was dry and somewhat had a peanut butter connotation to it. A semi - sweet sticky finish accompanies the end. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sipping quality about it. The carbonation seemed pretty controlled and allowed a decent creaminess to roll over the tongue. Overall, I say this was an exceptional AI/DS with the peanut butter part well executed. Definitely would have again!

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.

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.

deyholla (9750) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours black with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges slowly and laces slightly. Aroma has a great peanut butter with a bit of bitter chocolate and a hint of dark grains. Flavor has more of the same with a great combination of dark chocolate and peanut butter with a hint of dark grains.
