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.

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.

Draft pint at Humpy’s in ANC. Awesome look and mouthfeel; creamy head and softest body ever. Nitro btw, but I don’t care you Puritans. Served a bit too cold, so the aroma was just a hint of coffee and cocoa. Flavor was nice but hidden a bit also, but the aftertaste showed a great balance of sweetish caramel and chocolate against a slightly more powerful acidity of the roast. Medium-heavy body is dry, watery and highly downable at this temperature.

SHIG (3851) - 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.

On tap at Humpy’s served on a nitro pump. This was still cascading into the head when it was served. Opaque beer with a foamy brown nitro powered head that left glass coating lace. Very little nose with some bitter chocolate and black malts. Nice light nitro moutfeel. Lots of dusty bitter chocolate, some ash, burnt toast and some sweetened coffee. There is a hint of something lactic in the back. Very enjoyable stout.

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.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2011
[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.

Bulk_Carrier (2537) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, 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.

On tap @ Humpys. Black with a thick creamy tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and dark roasted grains. Rich chocolate flavor with a bit of hop and roasted malt bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation and a creamy mouth feel. This is a very well balanced, full flavored Stout, my favorite from Denali so far.
