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.

BillKismet (3605) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Chestnut brown body with airy browned cream head. Feint aroma, which does expand a bit after aeration. A hint of hazelnut and root beer. Body starts off thin on the lips, but at the back of the throat fills out. Hazelnut and moderately smooth roasty body that does dry out a bit to expose some rough edges, tannins, and nuttiness. Some barley syrup sweetness on the finish.
