I’m getting through this backlog a few posts at a time. Let’s see how this one was.

ABV: 12%

Style: American Double/Imperial Stout

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “The goal of Stillwater Artisanal is just that, living art. Although packaged within a medium often overlooked for its artistic merits, our desire is to offer something new and intriguing. We present more than just a fine crafted beverage, rather an occasion that evokes an emotion and inspires contemplation. For art is not a sum of actions but rather an approach to life. We draw our inspiration from the world around us, whether that be a season, location, or even humanity itself. Our intent is to encapsulate this muse, exhibiting an artistic rendition to the best of our abilities.”

Random: Why must there be snow tomorrow? I am so done.

This beer poured with less than half a finger of tan head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was an inky black color with no carbonation visible due to the dark color. The nose was smoky with roasted malts and coffee. The taste was really nice. It had roasted malts with coffee and then a touch of sweetness from the grape juice, which was an interesting twist. This wasn’t as smoky as the nose, had a touch with some wood as well. Dark chocolate and booze came through at the end of the sip. It wasn’t overwhelmingly hot, but had some heat to it. The body was surprisingly thin with light carbonation. It had a long finish with dark chocolate and grape juice. For $19.99 a bomber, this broke down to $.91 per ounce. For that price, it was just slightly too thin for me. Still, it’s an exceptional beer.

Untappd Rating: 4.0/5.0
