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.

Black with lots of foamy head. TASTE Bitter black chocolate with a bit of lemon lime, some roast and coffee, which is retarded.... its a saison for crying out loud. SMELL banana, clove, coriander, grassy hops, and ROAST. I dont’ think Black Saison’s are my thing. they don’t taste good at all.

750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Dark brown pour with a ring of tan head. Aroma is roasted and smoky with a bit of dark fruit. Flavors of chocolate, earthy hops, and raisins. This is a very odd brew.

This one have rye in it? I think that’s the note I’m getting and I’m not a fan. Great dark brown pour with 3 finger tan head. the slightly funky citrus is cool, but the toasty rye is just throwing me off.

Bottle. This bottle was so over carbonated, I just don’t feel right in writing a review until I revisit it again..

blipp (9696) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 13, 2011
Draft. Pours brown with a big and lasting beige head. Saison-ish spicy yeasty aroma, with fruits and a light roasty note. The flavor is spicy with roasted malts, fruit, and clovey spices. Delicious.

3.2
kbutler1 (1382) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 11, 2011
Bottle. Poured into a tall TH glass a dark, cola like brown black color with a HUGE 5 finger head, carbonation much?! Much darker than I thought it would be. Nice lace left after the 5 minute waiting period as the head settles. Roasty, coffee, and some chocolate in the nose. Light/medium mouthfeel Sweet, green apple, roast, and dark chocolate in the flavor. Not bad but might be a little young.

Draft @ Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Pours a black color with a small off-white head. Has a roasted malty spicy licorice aroma. Roasted malty spicy licorice flavor with weak hints of caramel. Has a roasted malty spicy licorice finish.

jkwood04 (5463) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 7, 2011
750ml bottle in a shaker. Pours dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, Belgian spice, a little chocolate, floral hops. Flavor about the same, and very complex. Average texture. A really good beer by this brewer.

3.7
zdk (1917) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 6, 2011
dark fruits, malty, berries and funk. Molasses, dark brown, hazy tan head. Nice carbonation, light chocolate. Woody aroma, raspberry. Finish is dry bit astringent and bitter. Lots of fruit, want more funk, but very good

3.9
Rciesla (5607) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark bruin body with a tan head with a big lacing and creamy head. Fruity with light belgian yeast esters but a strong malty backbone. Coffee, light char, chocolate malt tones. Dark fruits, very spicy with a drying and herbal bittering finish. Quite a bit going on here, i enjoyed this.
