Night Stalker, as an homage to the Chicago-based television show. Night Stalker is a jet black, dry hopped Imperial Stout, extremely rich and full flavored with malt and chocolate followed by a bright dry hopped aroma. It is the same base as our Bourbon County Stout, but instead of aging in Bourbon barrels, we dry hop it like madmen. ABV – 11.7% IBU’s – 60 Color – 100 Aroma Hops –Mt. Hood & Simcoe Malts – 2-Row, Munich, Chocolate, C-60, Roast Barley, Debittered Black

Rating #350. Bottled on 11/19/12 number 1721. Poured into a snifter. The pour is a nice black with a finger of dark khaki head and a gorgeous lace left behind. The aroma has a great dark fruit (raisin maybe) to it, kind of taking over from some of the roast on the front of the nose. The roasted malt comes back in at the mid point and just meshes well with the fruit. There is perhaps a touch of cocoa toward the back end. The flavor is definitely interesting compared to other imperials I’ve had. The roastyness is what is detected first, but then it moves through the dark fruit character with a good caramel, burnt-sugar-ish flavor. The hops aren’t immediately noticed, but finish strong. The mouth feel is incredibly oily, viscous and thick. The coverage on the mouth would be comparable to a syrup. The carbonation is light, but well executed and the aftertaste is just delicious and lingering

On tap at Rattle n Hum. Pour is black with a small brown head. Aroma is of semi-sweet chocolate, licorice, burnt caramel, and raisins. Flavor is sweet with some alcohol burn - chocolate covered raisins, licorice, roasted malt, molasses, booze.

Black, minimal head. Aroma is lots of roasted malt. Taste is the same with some sweet oiliness on the palate. Lots of soy sauce flavour as it warms. Hops really interplay well with the stout qualities here but not my go-to kind of stout.

Draft at Portsmouth Brewery Imperial Stout tap take over. Pitch black color with thin white head, small light retention. The aroma of the brew you can smell the heavy hopping. Hints of pine with dark chocolate mats and molasses.

The mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. Bold flavor some burnt sugars, hints of dark fruits, raisins and licorice. A touch of caramel. The hops become real obvious after the stout gets warm. Big pine resin that helps balance the stout.

Overall a solid imperial stout and a real treat to have this on draft. Great way to start Portsmouth Beer Week in NH!

Bomber from Brook Falls Discount purchased a few weeks ago, with a 11/12 bottle date - could have been the same bottle I was eyeing the prior 6 times that I was in there. Pours pitch black with a chocolate brown head leaving terrific coats of lace. Aroma has milk chocolate, molasses, roasted malt, some earthiness and tar. Rich and luscious. Taste is of sweet caramelly malts, bakers chocolate, coffee, some lactose, some citrus-y fruit and soy sauce. Full bodied with some alcohol. Finishes bitter and long with sweetness and fruit. A strong complex brew with a lot of body which was not quite a good as the promise of the aroma.
