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.

Very dark brown, almost black. In the nose there’s yeast, a tiny bit of smoke and some chocolate tones. The taste has blackcurrant, liquorice and Saison-style spicy tones. Excellent beer.

Tap at Churchkey. Brown pour with a big off-white head. Aroma holds heavy yeast presence, with dough, some plum and orange fruitiness, and clove. Flavor increases the malt backbone, with the yeast dropping back somewhat. Palate isn’t particularly noteworthy; medium-bodied, decent carbonation. Good, not great.

obguthr (4539) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Funky bark and leather aroma. Cloudy brown, medium yellow head. Very leathery currant with musty bark toward the end. Faint chocolate notes. Disappointing when compared to Stillwater’s saisons. Not awful and not infected, but very average.

Defreni (2807) - 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.
