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.

Picked up in River Falls, WI. Dry with some roasty notes, earthy, hazelnut, black pepper, with an underlying slight tartness. Color is dark brown with an average sized creamy and lasting head. Well crafted, as I’ve noticed with the few other Stillwater offerings I’ve tried. Nice beer here. Another solid effort from a solid brewery.

arkurzynski (1461) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Pours like a cup of coffe with amber hues. Nose of dark fruit and light nutty roast, Belgin yeast and dark candy. Flavor is faint dark fruit and burnt biscuit with lightly sweet candy and finishing with dry nutty roast. Decent amount of lingering roast and coffee. Mildly dry. This dulls with further drinking. A nice strong with dubbel aspects and dialed-up roast.

Bottle pour in the middle of my own personal Stillwater brewfest at home. Pours near black with a super sticky, lingering head. Roasted malt forward aroma. Flavor is a smooth roasted malt with a little bit of a smokey finish. Solid beer overall. Enjoying the brews from these guys.

@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark ruby brown with a ragged 1" head that slowly drops, ragged splotches of lace. A rough, but good looking brew. Taste is dark roasted malt that grows into the palate with the addition of dark earth laced with citrus. The finish turns somewhat bitter, but as it lingers, dark chocolate appears out of nowhere, making this a complex and amazing brew. A great example of a Dark Belgian Ale.
