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

330ml bottle served in a flute glass.

A: Pours a dark brown color forming a huge and aired bubbled beige head. Great retention and lots of soapy and lingering lacings left in the glass

S: Quite peculiar in the nose. Sweet, fruity and citrus followed by some roasted malts followed by some sort of weird mix of tropical fruits (like watermelon and pineapple) and spices

T: Slightly sweet taste. Roasted malts. Tropical fruits and spices. Slightly sour. Medium bitterness

M: Medium body and carbonation. Watermelon aftertaste

O: Great drinkability. Peculiar and interesting beer
