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)

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.

Bottle pours deep brown/black with a rocky tan head that leaves tons of lace. Aroma shows notes of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, and vanilla. Flavor shows the same with a slight hint of smoke. Overall body is moderate and finishes with light roasted bitterness.

Brewtopia 11-12-05 This was a dark stout, hoppy with citrus nose. Pretty dry on the finish. Nice.

Aroma is chocolate, oatmeal, cocoa powder, dark stone fruits. Dark aroma. Hint of whiskey. Appears deep, dark chocolate brown. Just this side of black. Thin off-brown head. The flavor is nutmeg and mocha coffee. Cocoa powder and a dry, brown sugary finish. Solid. The palate is oily but with a gritty finish. A nice, decent stout. Not elite, but pleasant. Dry and tastes good.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 2, 2006
22oz Bottle: Pours to an opaque near-black brown with a medium light brown head that sticks with some nice lacing. The aroma is sweet lactose (can you smell this? certainly smells like milk sugar to me), roasted malt, dark & bitter malt, unsweetened dark chocolate. Sure the aroma is simple, but itís well done and thatís fine by me. Taste is bitter dark roasted malt, a tiny hint of hops, lactose, light caramel, just-used espresso grounds, and a hint of coffee, but itís more like the bitter roast you get when youíre drinking the last drops of a cup of coffee without sugar where your filter broke and the grounds are in your cup - a flavor I happen to like, distinctly different from the earthy/fruity/chocolate/roast flavor you might use to describe a coffee stout. Medium-full bodied, medium-lively carbonation, definitely very dry. Finishes with a quick hint of lactose, then roasted malt, burnt coffee, and tobacco. Nice.

Caytinator (966) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 30, 2013
22oz bomber. Dark mahogany color, no lacing, big headed bubbles fade down to nothing, quickly. Smells toasty. Taste is primarily roasted, bitter, and somewhat malty, but not sweet or complex. A little fizzy. I didnít like it, itís not my kind of stout.

DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - JAN 20, 2009
Bottle. Nice roasty malt aroma, with chocolate and some smokiness. Black body, large dense tan head. Flavor is roasty and pleasingly bitter. Lengthy dry and bitter finish. Excellent, if you enjoy a roasty bitter presentation.

dlovell2 (895) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Dark brown with thick tan head. Roasted malt and chocolate aroma with some citrus aromas. Very thin feel in mouth and bubbly. Dark chocolate and roasted malt flavors and sharp bittter finish.

TheHopster (834) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2011
(bottle) Black/brown complexion with a persistent tan head. Good lingering palate & chewy mouthfeel. Well roasted with some smokiness. An excellent value. Nice choice for cold weather or damp days.

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2006
[bottle] Pours a real black color and a coffee colored head. Aroma is rather sweet, with plenty of coffee and subtle hops. The flavors are again, coffee, chocolate, loads of malty goodness.. finishes dry, with some serious hops! An interesting stout, indeed.
