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 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 arent 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 Ive had. If it had a bigger body, that would really make it world class.

What a shocker that this is 8.5 abv. Drinking from sampler at the Taproom. I was about to rate this sweet stout and then I see its an impy stout that just tastes like a sweet stout with peanut butter and chocolate. Its sweet from the adjuncts not from sugar. Once you get past the peanut butter and chocolate, its actually a dry finish, a bit minerally, light roast. he adjuncts really hide the any possibly acidity or alcohol but I am not sure these are present anyway. I am not a fan of gimmicky adjuncts but this is done well. Its not a Southern Tier like diabetes job, I dont actually love peanut butter but this works well in this beer. I would say, if I were to drink a peanut butter, chocolate fondue, gimmicky, impy stout, this would be the one.

Brune cola ou presque noire, cette bire chocolate est bien beurre par les arachides, cache bien son alcool, montre un rti amer, des houblons terreux, de la vanille grille, des flaveurs de Coffee Crisp?, des malts lgrement brls et du caf cru. Son corps est plutt mince pour le style mais pas de faon si drangeante. Son ptillement est contrl. En arrire-got, son amertume la rend tout fait digeste.

Drank at Malous goodbye party 27-9-2015. Okay beer, but not that great. Does not have that much taste, a bit weak.

i like peanut butter and chocolate but usually dont like these types of beer. this is an exception it is full in the body and flavor yet not thick. still somewhat beery in the carbonation with a bit of malt.

Bottle shared with my wife. Pours a deep black with a thick tan head. A hint of sweet chocolate behind a thick dusty peanut note. Medium bodied, sweet peanut butter, a hint of chocolate. Thins out a bit, cocoa and roast. Long peanut flavor on the finish with some more roast.

Over hyped. There is literally no Peanut butter Flavor and once you strip that off you have a poor example of a Imperial Stout. It is bitter, not hop bitter, but maybe too much chocolate malt bitter. Maybe I would give it another shot, but only if I can find it on tap somewhere. I got a 22 oz bottle and that was $13.00! I can honestly say, I had the worst headache on the planet after drinking this stuff. I would not recommend and it is another example of an over hyped beer.
