Existent represents the philosophy behind Stillwater Artisanal. We strive to define ourselves through our passion and sincerity while accepting that not all aspects of life are readily explainable. To manifest this ideology we present an ale of intrigue. Deep & dark though deceptively dry, braced by a firm yet smooth bitterness and accented with an earthy hop and mild roast aroma. This is an ale for you to define..

’and if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.’ –Nietzsche

Note: Formerly brewed at Dog, now at Two Roads.

HKdIPA (690) - HONG KONG - APR 16, 2016
Bottle from Craftissimo at home after drum performance. Dark black pour with puffy tan head. Aroma is a bit farmy, a bit roasty, some earthy hops - subtle but nice. Taste is very round - a bit of everything. Some roasted dark chocolate-ish malt, some bitter hops, some farmy yeasty flavors, some spice and clove, some booze. Smooth but not rich palate with nice carbonation. Very interesting.

Bottle to tumbler. January 2014 bottling. Didn’t catch it until I was pouring, but it held up. Dark ruby brown in the glass. Nose was vacant. Palate was intriguing. Little sweet blackberry somewhere up front. All barnyard and malts thrift through the middle. Complex, sticky. Little fine fizz to the syrupy mouth. Yum.

lello4ever (720) - ITALY - JAN 15, 2016
Marrone scuro, poca schiuma. Aroma di malto con note tostate molto. Lievi. Bene al palato dove si conferma una nota tostata e un finale un pelo amaro.
