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) 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.

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!

Black. Tan head, burnt nose. Nitro, so it’s very smooth. Creamy, burnt chocolate taste. Velvety smooth. Bitter chocolate aftertaste.

Yes this is pretty decent. Chocolate and roasted malt nose. Rich. Appearance is standard. Thick mouthfeel. Dry category seems wrong. Full and complex.

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.

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.

I’ve pretty much quit drinking stouts these days -- over the summer I’ve preferred something lighter, and I’ve certainly gotten tired of chasing the next over-the-top imperial with something-or-other.But this one reminds me why I shouldn’t go too far toward giving them up. This is really nice. Very dark inky pour, nice rich deep brown head, roasty coffee nose, a bit of ash at first but that fades, hops a little metallic but not bad at all, gentle sweetness coming in late. This is really drinkable and really tasty. I wish I had another one sitting around, or any stout real, but alas. It was a single can lark.

Draught at GABBF. Pours opaque black with a medium, frothy tan head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is roast and chocolate malt, prunes and leather. Flavor is roast malt, prunes, leather, light earthy hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Can - Lots of cocoa and roast with some dried coffee. Jet brown with a rich brown head. Dark and roasty with some nice chocolate notes and a touch of sweet bitterness. Nice dry finish.

12oz can from SHIG. Poured a black body with a dense thick mocha colored head. Aroma of chocolate pudding skins, vanilla beans, dark toast, milk and a slight hint of metal. Flavor is the same but looses that slight himt of metal. Big rich full body with softer to average carbonation. This drinks bigger than a sub 6% beer.
