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

A: It pours a coffee brown, with a thin off white head.
S: I get some chocolate, pitted fruits, and booze.
T: First there's chocolately roasted malts, a mild sweetness, yeast, and an earthy hop bitterness on the back end.
M: Medium bodied but good carbonation
O: It's pretty good, but a little disappointing.
