Notes/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

Deep dark pour, pleasant foamy white head. Foamy, malty smell. A deep stout yet fruity flavor with caramel, roasted malty finish tinged with bitterness. Mouthfeel is fluid but a bit thick. A really delightful combination of flavors. Perhaps too intense to drink in large quantities but it's great.
