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)

nimbleprop (7354) - 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.

<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!

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 24, 2004
Pours a rich dark brown, nearly black, with a thin tan head. Roasty malt aroma has some smoke character to it. Body starts lightly sweet and very dry, like a desert, earthy and smoky. Somewhat thin mouthfeel for a stout. Finishes warming and dry.

HogTownHarry (6374) - 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.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 10, 2009
Pours brown with a thin tan head. Smells of roasted malt and chocolate. Extremely astringent flavor to the point where I had to dump this as the astringency overwhelmed everything else.

Rastacouere (6174) - 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 itís hard to get anything at all past that ashes-like roastiness. Exceedingly dry. Lightly powdery mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Weak.

Glouglouburp (6103) - 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.

AirForceHops (6081) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 7, 2011
22 oz bottle Table and Vine, West Springfield, MA. Cost $5.99. Nice frothy off-white head. Nice thick, sticky lace down my English Pint glass. Aroma has roast, bitter chocolate, and smoky wood. Taste is roast, some earthy, light bittersweet chocolate. Some charred malt as well. Very dry, with a lingering bitterness. Light smokiness. Overall, a well-made dry stout. Good flavor and very drinkable if you like dry stouts, I do! Bit above average here.

ClarkVV (5704) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 20, 2005
2005 bottle from City Market in Burlington. Pour reveals a clear blackish brown, with no red tinges that I can make out. Head is moderate, and dark tan, but seems to recede fairly readily, leaving little lacing. Aroma is not terribly expressive, mostly roast, bitter dark chocolate, but what it does have is strength. This is one of the few dry stouts where the aroma is actually notable when the bottle is open. I didnt have to bury my nose in the snifter to get this one. Flavor - Wow, thatís dry. The light roast and bits of lactose and caramel from the nose donít prepare me for the amount of attenuation on it. Not watery though, and a moderate carbonation. Bit of a prickly mouthfeel, all told, the dry roast not really helping. Moderate acidity, but somehow, my palate gets used to the dryness and there is some sweet malt as it warms. Finishes with lots of roast, notes of coal and tobacco, chocolate graham crackers. Hops apparency is very low. Medium body.

jgb9348 (5612) - 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.
