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)

Pours a three finger light tan head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Black color no highlights. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Roasted coffee nose. Flavor is roasted to burnt coffee with a lingering burnt coffee aftertaste. $3.99 for a 22oz bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT.

Dorwart (2356) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2011
Huge light brown head from a vigorous pour. Very frothy and sudsy in appearance. Somewhat weak aroma with some light roasted malts, milk chocolate, lactose and some floral air freshener. Color is a very dark brown. Soft, sweet and malty aroma with some more lactose, light bittersweet chocolate and some dried flowers. No real alcohol presence. A very roasty and dry stout. Decent.

Bottle from January ’10 courtesy of sflpunk. Almost black pour, reddish tints and a good sized, frothy, mocha colored head. Aroma holds dry roast, bitter chocolate, charred wood, sweet caramel, and some bitter hops that mix nicely with the roast component. Flavor holds more roast and chocolate with some increased coffee presence and more dry and bitter hops as well. Palate is a bit of a fault; thin and uninteresting on the tongue. Nevertheless, a tasty stout from Rock Art.

Shared with the fam. Black pour with brownish tints around the edge of the glass when held up to the light. The head is khaki and frothy in nature, and dissipates into a veneer. The lacing is spot like and prevalent. The aroma is predominantly coffee and chocolate with some lactic creaminess and savory caramel. Quite nice, actually. The flavor is sweet, but demonstrated much more roasted barley than the aroma would suggest. Bitter bakers chocolate, espresso, cream, and caramel are most noticeable, though a noticeable balancing hop presence also makes itself known. Palate is medium bodied for the style, with a smooth caressing mouthfeel, low effervescence, and a chalk like roast oriented finish. Yummy for sure.

Light amount of malts in the aroma. Very dark amber color with a small brown head. Light bitter beginning with a sweet finish. Medium body and silky.

BroSpud (1666) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Bomber. Dark black pour with a creamy tan head and decent lacing. Roasted malt aroma with flavors of coffee and smoke. The body is a bit on the thin side but the taste makes up for it.

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.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - MAR 12, 2011
(22 oz. bottle from Bootleggers) Pours dark brown with some lighter brown and amber highlights. Three fingers of tan head recede to a light, lasting cap. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, perhaps vanilla. Mouthfeel smooth and creamy, although a touch thin. Flavor of coffee and chocolate, actually quite strong on the coffee.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - DEC 27, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2006 Bomber- Pours very black with a small dark tan head and very little carbonation. Aroma is strong of roasted malt, coffee and slightly sweet. Flavor is also strong of roasted malt (black patent?), coffee and a good amount of hop bitterness. Finish is quite bitter and mildly astringentand slightly sour. Not a great stout, but not too bad ... certainly worth repeating.
