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)

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.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2004
Opaque black body is covered by tiny light brown bubbles, 1cm in height. An honest blend of roasted malt and smokiness is perceivable in the nose and continues on the tongue, but it’s hard to get anything at all past that ashes-like roastiness. Exceedingly dry. Lightly powdery mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Weak.

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.

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.

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.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 9, 2009
Bottle. Pours a brown body with a tan head. Big malty body with an astringent metallic like note, not particularly surprised either. Some light chocolate malts, caramel, hints of coco and roasted coffee. Thin and bittersweet, if not for the infection? this would have been nice it seems.

nimbleprop (5204) - 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.

jgb9348 (4851) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Very dark brown body with a lighter copper glow near the bottom with a nice thick three centimetre tall light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, light hops, anise, nuts and a bit of caramel. Medium-bodied; Deep pungent roasty malt flavours at first then shows a nice complexity of hops, then a shows a dry oaky note and a good dose of anise. Aftertaste shows a lot of caramel, some licorice and other spices and all finished off with a dry, bittering malty bite and some alcohol. Overall, a nice dry stout that shows a lot of good character and some potent bittering flavours that might be a bit too strong for some. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Liquor Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 24-July-2011 sampled at home in Washington on 30-July-2011.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2004
Roasted malts figure prominently in the aroma with some mild smokiness. Opaque brown with small brown head that diminishes to thin ring. Roasty bitterness and sweet malts contrast nicely. Lasting roastiness in the aftertaste after a short flavour profile. Fairly simple. Medium body but somewhat unexciting. Bottle sampled with beerbuzzmontreal, Lubiere, MartinT, Rastacouere and SimonB.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 3, 2004
Growler. Black, thick tar, unending dark heavy head. Powerful roasty nose isn't exactly unique or exciting, but quite nice. Smooth, fairly heavy mouthfeel, a nice quiet bitterness from beginning to end, dark chocolate gradually enters the espresso-powered body as the tongue lingers... a truly excellent example of the style, nothing new mind you but does everything basically right. Rock Art's best as of now I'd say.
