COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named for those rugged people who work and play in the woods! This Gnarly Stout rises to the task, being a bit chewy and a hefty 5.8% abv, cranking plenty of Challenger and Perle hops. The perfect days end for the Stump Jumper in all of us. Brewed with pale, crystal, black, chocolate roasted malts, oats, flaked barley, Perle and Challenger hops. (SEASONAL)

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2010 In short: A boring almost watery stout with no complexity
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed relatively fresh some 4 months after purchase
The look: Black body topped by a very small tan head
In long: Nose is very roasted with hints of cacao and maybe even some barrel notes even though the beer is not barrel aged. Body and taste are a big letdown. The body it very light, foamy and airy. Taste is dark malts and some vanilla. No complexity, no coffee notes, no fruity notes, almost no chocolate, nothing, just dark malts, vanilla and burnt toasts-like roastiness. Watery finish. Felt tired, old and boring, Granny Stout.

<i>Bottle (22oz) shared with GregClow, HogTownHarry & garthicus -- courtesy of HogTownHarry.</i> Pours a very dark brown with an average size creamy light-brown head. Nice aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, some coffee and green hops. Flavour of roasted malt, coffee and hops. Dry bitter finish. Average bodied. Creamy mouthfeel. A very good Stout!

HogTownHarry (6127) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 1, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 Bottle (22oz). Shared with blankboy, garthicus and GregClow - my bottle via trade with glouglouburp. Hazy, near opaque reddish-brown, possessed of an average creamy lasting light brown head. LOVE the aroma - dry nutty cocoa deep roast sweet malt, with mild herbal bitterness - very nice. The taste is also dry, of coffee beans, cocoa powder, semi-sweet chocolate, perhaps a touch sour in the finish. Average at best body, creamy, mildly astringent, with a dry dusty-bitter finish. More than decent, loses a couple of points for a slightly weak and acidic finish.

garthicus (2712) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 16, 2008
HogTownHarry’s bottle - App: Deep black with a wispy head. Aroma: Coffee, chocolate, raisins and cream. Flavour: Bitter, coffee, peat - quite thin all the same. Not bad.

Ughsmash (7175) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Bomber. Poured clear deep brown, leaving a frothy ring of tan head at the edges. The aroma picked up dry-roasted semi-sweet chocolates with pine needle hoppage around.. quite a lot of green hop impression, and I must say I enjoyed it. The flavor had dry cocoa and slightly darker chocolates at the core with coffee and pine bitterness surrounding.. finished piney with a chocolate impression.. very tasty. Light-medium bodied with plenty of bitterness and a dry impression on the palate.. well-composed, and one of the best dry stouts I’ve tried.

daknole (9415) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 12, 2008
Bottle at Chez Claudine’s in Stowe, VT. Pours a black color with a brown head and brown sediment floating about. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Flavor is pretty dry and toasty. Mouthfeel is a bit thin...some bitterness at the end too. Just ok...not my stout style.

Beerdedone (2703) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Bottle. Pours black with a ultra small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, and notes of chocolate. Flavor is dark roasted malts, coffee, light chocolate and a hint of molasses. medium body with a dry finish.

Sammy (8849) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2008
Pours black with little head, sediment at bottom of glass. Some roast, and roast is the one-dimensional taste of this beer. Not bad for a dry stout, malt in there to keep it from extreme dryness. Drinkable, but powdery and burnt parts.

nimbleprop (5084) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 6, 2007
Poured a deep, oily black with a creamy, lacing eggshell colored head. Looks appetizing. Nose is all malt, heavy roasted malt aroma with a hint of candy. Smells simple but inviting and mouth watering. Flavor is all roasted malt and nuts, heavy coffee finish with a velvet and chocolate texture. Very solid, but a little too simple.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Blackish pour with medium tan head. Roasty aroma with lots of coffee. Taste was of heavily roasted malts with some hop bitterness detectable - too thin & unbalanced to be really good. Below-average for the style in my opinion, but still decent and sessionable.
