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.

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.

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.

SHIG (3447) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Growler: Poured a dark black with red edges, the head was thin tan. Aroma is cocoa/bakers chocolate and coffee hints. Taste is bold roasted malts, light bitter chocolate, and edgy coffee.

[Tap] Pint at a restaurant near Denali National Park in early September. Inky black pour with a stout brown head on top. Heavy char and ash in the nose. Lighter milk chocolate and vanilla in the aroma as the beer warms. Burnt malts, wood, espresso, anise and ash throughout. Dry finish. Thick and oily mouthfeel. A really nice surprise. Even though the ABV is low, this is a hearty beer that could keep you warm through the winter.

bblack99 (526) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - AUG 9, 2011
On tap at Talkeetna Roadhouse a few days ago. Black pour with foamy dark brown head that laced beautifully. Aroma was well-rounded coffee with loads of chocolate malt and roasted grains. Flavor and finish fell a touch short, with a good start of coffee but a weak progression into nutty chocolate as the finish felt a bit muddled and overly sweet. Great for the area, but this one is just a tiny bit off. If they can address the finish, this would be one heck of a brew!
