COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Over its long history, stout has served many purposes, from a doctor-recommended cure-all to an aperitif for Russian royalty. Somewhere in the middle is Chuli Stout, a dry Irish style stout, which takes its name from the mighty Chulitna River. An ample amount of roasted barley imparts dry, coffee-like flavors, while flaked barley adds smoothness and body. And if that weren’t enough, Chuli Stout is conditioned and served with nitrogen, amplifying smoothness and creating that rich, dense, classic stout pour.

Dark brown, only a little head. Quite a toasty nose, roasty palate, a touch thin bit bringing some nice dark malt character, choc especially, and a fairly hearty bitterness.

Brun foncé, ce stout arrive de l’Alaska. Merci Yan! Belle mousse crémeuse et dentelle éparpillée. Nez riche de café et de cacao avec des noisettes grillées et de l’avoine rôtie. Goût de torréfaction et de chocolat brun et noir avec une bonne dose de grains noircis et rôtis. Corps de moyenne densité avec une texture crémeuse et un pétillement doux. Finale amère assez longue. Savoureuse à souhait.

Une cannette d’Alaska. Une bière noire avec une mousse brune. Un nez de chocolat, de café au lait ou de lait au chocolat et de noix grillé. Une bouche de chocolat et de café. Merci Yan pour cette bière.

Can pour. Pours black with a foamy tan head. Very nice chocolate malt aroma and flavor. Semi sweet chocolate flavor throughout. Long roasted finish too. Really well done. Enjoyed this one.

Can:   Black, nice head and lacing, foamy, beige in color.   Dry powdery nose, a slight touch of bakers or dark chocolate.   A little roast as well.   Nice balance on the tongue, soft bitterness, some cocoa, bakers chocolate, and very pale roastiness.   Tiz a touch dry as it should be.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Clean, dry, even a touch chalky on the finish.   Solid Dry Stout that I wasn’t expecting to experience.   Glad I picked this one up!

Very drinkable, not too strong stout with good balance of toasty notes, malt, and hops. Prevalent, American-style hopping but has nice dry finish and ends clean on the palate. Medium-light mouthfeel.

(Nitro) jet black, thick creamy very fine tan head. Nose of rich coffee, oats, cream, roasted sugar/grains. Taste is not as decadent as the smell, light coffee, medium roasty grain, roasted sugars, creamy body but perhaps a little thin, even for the style. Good dry stout overall though.

Nitro at sb. I can certainly live without the nitro. Pours black with a ridiculously dense and slow-settling sandy head. Actually looks like a glass of sand for about five minutes. Quite a spectacle. Dry roasty nose. The usual chalky flat nitro body. Roasty dry mid palate with some baking chocolate. Nice but, well, ya gotta like nitro.

Draught, nitro. Pours a near black color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose is somewhat roasty, like black coffee. Taste is slightly sweet and very roasty, with coffee coming through as well. Not at all bitter, though.

Bulk_Carrier (2264) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAR 1, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2014 The appearance has a black colored body with an off white one fingered foamy head that dies within about a minute leaving a nice sticky foamy lacing. The smell has some roasty light chocolate coming backed up by some malts. The taste is bitter and sweet at separate times with a dry coffee-ish aftertaste and finish. On the palate, it sits about a medium, and is somewhat sessionable. Carbonation is good for the style and for me as its not too harsh but not too soft, just right. Overall, I say this is a pretty good Irish dry stout well worthy of coming back to.
