Poured 750 ml into a brandy glass. Dark brown with reddish tint and a thin yet persistent head. Earthy hopped nose, and a dry palate with nice carbonation that hits quickly at the top of the tongue. The taste is difficult to describe, but woody notes prevail with a roasted quality that rounds out the flavor. Very unique and enjoyable beer. Gachupines (1252) - USA - JUN 1, 2012
Dark brown, almost black with a thick tan head. Aroma is yeast, spice, some dark fruit. Flavor is bread-like and yeasty at first evened out by strong spice and some mild sweetness in the finish. Dark fruit aftertaste. Body is thick but not cloying. It’s surprisingly light for the big flavors present. Excellent pairing beer as well. JeanDuteau (18) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
A roast sweet smell with hints of caramel, this poured nice an dark with a good head that laced well and did not dissipate quickly. A nice fizz up front that did not overwhelm, I could taste the roast and the sweetness. A wonderfully balanced beer that had a pleasant lingering aftertaste. ronaldtheriot (1978) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Stillwater Artisanal Existant has a thin, cream-colored head, a very dark brown appearance, with noticeable and fairly large yeast chunks floating about, and bit of a lacing sheen left behind. The aroma is of slightly dank, bready malt, with just a hint of spice. Taste is of sweet, spicy, rich, gourmet bread, dark fruit, fairly strong bitterness, and some hard-to-pin-down herbs. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Stillwater Artisanal Existant finishes rich, full, and memorable. RJT JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2011
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.

Bob Bitchen! Pours dark like the sasquatch coffee I drink every morning with a tall farmhouse head that sits there like a dead muledeer. Mild aromatics with gentle roasted coffee bean and cocoa. Medium full nectar with superb carbonation. This brew is a classic. There’s some killer action going on here with all the cocoa and coffee mingling with the bittering component and lush malt backbone. Excellent beer sasquatch.

Bottle @Patricks. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, yeast, some roasted notes and some fruitiness. Flavor is sweet and malty with some biscuit, caramel, yeast,licorice and roasted grains. Medium body, lively carbonation. Very nice . tympanic (168) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 8, 2012
On tap at Leroy in Montgomery, AL. I had a fun conversation with that cute attorney girl and her librarian-hot friend. Lisowczyk (91) - POLAND - SEP 8, 2014
Barwa ciemnego brązu, pod światło rubinu. Piana niska, utrzymuje się dziurawy kożuch. Piwo tajemnica. Są nuty zbożowe, śliwka, czekolada, owoce, ciasteczka, wanilia, ale prawdziwą robotę czynią dodatki nieznane. Rewelacyjny bukiet jako całość, a nie pojedyncze smaczki. bluejacket74 (1993) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2011
750 ml bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours dark brown with a very small tan head that went away quickly. There is a lot of lacing left behind on the glass. Aroma is very nutty, and the brew also smells like caramel, chocolate, bready malt and coffee. It tastes like roasted and bready malt, spice, nuts, dark chocolate, and a bit of dark fruit and orange peel. There’s also a lingering roasty, nutty finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick with low carbonation. Drinkability is good, it’s smooth and goes down easy. I think it’s a pretty good brew, regardless of what style it’s supposed (or not supposed) to be. This is the third brew I’ve tried from Stillwater, and I’ve enjoyed all of them so far.
