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)

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.

craftycarl21 (2205) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Bottle from January í10 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.

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.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, 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.

starfireming (309) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2007
Extremely sweet aroma with malt and coffee; medium brown head on a thick black body. Taste is nearly all coffee and the palate is surprisingly thin but good nonetheless. I was expecting motor oil. Low carbonation.

argo0 (11317) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 1, 2010
22oz bottle. Small tan head atop cola black body. Aroma is moderately sweet, bittersweet chocolate, some coffee/roast, syrup, light earthy. Taste is medium sweet, roast/coffee, some earthy, light bittersweet chocolate. Light-medium body, light stickiness. I wonder if this is just a plain old stout -- it seems too sweet to be considered a dry stout.

jgb9348 (4628) - 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.

AirForceHops (2939) - 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.
