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)

dmac (3999) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 15, 2012
22 oz bomber from Spirits Toms River. Poured a medium density pitch black body underneath a large bubbly light beige head. Aroma of lactose, dry dark chocolate, dark toast. The body is loaded with srong carbonation over a medium body that finishes with a quick burst of bitterness pushed through with more carbonation. Flavor is lactose, burnt notes, lightly burnt toast, tonic water. Body and flavor could use a bump but still not bad for the money.

ClarkVV (3892) - 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, that’s dry. The light roast and bits of lactose and caramel from the nose don’t 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.

AirForceHops (3118) - 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.
