COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Defreni (2775) - Husum, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2011
Fad: Mørk sortbrun gennemsigtig øl med et lille skumhoved. Smagen er meget lige udaf landevejen belgisk uden noget tvist. Alkoholen bliver ikke brugt til noget andet end den er skjult hvilket er et plus. Lidt skuffende.

Bottle: The aroma is very roasty along with some black licorice, faint chocolate, and a hint of nuts. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights with a small off-white head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of chocolate that is quickly overtaken by moderate roast, black licorice, and just a hint of sour fruit. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Pours an opaque brown with an off-white head with an off white thin head. Aroma is roasty coffee with hints of licorice. Flavor is much the same. Lingering licorice aftertaste. Good, but not great.

Sampled at the Stillwater tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits last month. Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Bitter vinous fruit nose (like white grape) along with some roasted malt. Flavor starts with bitter fruit rind, then turns to malty roastiness with some chocolate before a burnt coffee finish.
