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:

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.

Poured a dark brown with a small sized off white head. Aromas of, well, peanut butter and chocolate. Tastes of lighter peanut butter, roast, and chocolate.

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.

Bottle... Pours murky and black with a lightly-tanned head that diminishes quickly. Wonderful aromatic mélange of chocolate, peanut butter and vanilla. Light to medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and jazzy carbonation. The flavor offers big-time vanilla and hazelnuts, but is thin overall. Finishes like a hazelnut and vanilla-flavored brew. The label and nose say peanuts. My taste buds say hazelnuts. I’m confused. Nice beer though. Needs more viscosity to really make it a world-class brew. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!

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.

Bomber. Pours dark blackish brown with nose of choc malt, cacao, peanut butter/oil. Tastes on the sweet side, with a solid amount of choc malt, and I’ll be damned if this doesn’t taste a lot like a Reese’s Peanut butter cup, albeit not as sweet. This one is enjoyable.

jercraigs (10731) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2012
2012-08-18. Black body with a tiny beige head. 3+ Smells amazing, with notes of peanut butter and peanut butter wafer, whispers of Kit Kat wafer, muted malt. 8+ The flavour is disappointingly muted after that introduction, mild malt, muddle melange of some of the peanut and wafer notes of the aroma but less pleasantly arranged, dry roast. 6+ Average plus bodied palate. Bit of a let down in the end but started out great! Growler, Campground Brewdown 2012

Bottle shared by brew3crew. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. The aroma and flavor had an initial big burst of peanuts and peanut butter. Additional aroma and flavors of chocolate, roast and some earthy notes. The more I thought about the peanut butter component it almost seemed to have some hazelnut qualities working their way in. Still a pretty interesting beer.

22 oz. bottle from BMart- thanks again, Brian! Pours a deep coffee brown with a finger of tan head that dissipates quickly into just a ring. I definitely get some peanut butter in the aroma, which also has cacao nibs, dark chocolate, vanilla, and rich coffee-like roast. The flavor is basically the same slate of notes, but with more bitterness and less peanut butter. If I didn’t know this was a peanut butter stout, I’m not sure I could have identified it. Medium-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a roasty, bitter mouthfeel. Good imperial stout.
