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)

22oz bottle. Small tan head atop cola black body. Aroma is moderately sweet, bittersweet chocolate, some coffee/roast, syrup, light earthy. Taste is medium sweet, roast/coffee, some earthy, light bittersweet chocolate. Light-medium body, light stickiness. I wonder if this is just a plain old stout -- it seems too sweet to be considered a dry stout.

Bomber from the brewery. Pours a clear dark red tinted brown, near black, with a thin tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of dark fruits, roasted malt, dark chocolate. The taste is piney hops, clay, coffee, roasted malt, dark fruit finish. Thin-medium bodied, lingering bitterness.

Sammy (11180) - 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.

daknole (10872) - 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.

Omnipresent roasty bitterness monopolizes the flavor profile...Vanilla peers through the thin body and light soy sauce is frowned upon...Interesting for roast lovers and Rock Art’s best probably, but nothing worth seeking repetitively...

Bomber to snifter (thanks dudeabide). Looks good; cola with thin off-white lacing. Smells of dark malt and chocolate. Tastes like is smells, only milder, with an average mouthfeel. Decent beer.

Bomber. Thanks, 46er3498! Pours jet black--opaque--with a thick moussy brown head that falls to film before you can even sit down and try a sip. Big fat-ass chocolatey nose that really takes command. Nice velvety attack; thick body with soft, caressing carb and sweet flavors mingling with a nice dry roastiness. Just a whisper of toasty bitterness on the finish. This is really nice, subtle stuff. Fairly complex and rewarding despite an overall mildness and subdued nature. This’d be a good one to seek out again.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2010
22oz bomber bottle picked up somewhere in Boston - can’t remember where. Nearly opaque, dark brown colour with a tan head. Burnt, burnt and more burnt. Roast malt and coffee bean aroma. Dry, bitter and roasty on the palate. Chicory coffee/coffee grounds and powdery cocoa. Ooh yes, it is very dry, with a lingering bitterness. Overall, decent enough but a little harsh and short on finesse.

Ughsmash (7508) - 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.
