COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

nolankowal (932) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2010
Bomber 2010. Super thick pour, black as hell with a mocha head...pretty much looks like BCS, which is a good thing. Aroma of pine, bready malt, caramel, licorice, and dark chocolate. Flavors of roasted bready malt, bitter pine and light citrus, caramel, dark chocolate. Big body, thick and sweet with a nice bitterness that cuts through it. Lasting bitter finish. Overall, very tasty stuff, I like the hopped up Impys, the bitterness cuts through what could be cloying sweetness. Biggest complaint is the bomber size. Totally impractical as a 12 oz would be plenty even for two people.

NayTron (133) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 9, 2010
Pours black with little head. Aromas of hops, chocolate, roasted malts and a wisp of oak. Taste is really unique, impressions of a dark IPA. Hops with roasted malts. Mouthfeel is really wonderful. Finishes with a slow bitter that works well with the malts. Nice beer.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - APR 9, 2010
Nice dark roast, licorice and herbal hop aroma. Quite piney, hoppy flavor layered over more rich licorice and dark chocolate. Very tasty.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2010 Pours a nice jet black with a mild head. This is one the best beers in the world. Has a nice malty base with chocolate and coffee overtures but its the hops that make this beer one of the best. If you can find this one buy it you won’t be disappointed.

wavers1 (909) - Notown, California, USA - APR 7, 2010
thanks to tarheels for this fresh beaut! pours black with a brown head, fairly small, would have like a lil more there. aroma is great, tons of fresh citrusy, pineapplish, earthy hops everywhere! yum! the taste is to match, just great, starts with a strong punch of hops to reckon with any iipa, then fades very nicely into a deep, sweet stout that you would expect. this beer is awesome, on par with other dark hop bombs like 09 darkness and alpha claus fresh. the hop profile is very nice, the base beer is of course great, and the hops allow an extra dimension temp wise too, this beer offers something slightly chilled.

Sampled at RBWG 2010. This is good. Sweet chocolatey stout characteristics but loaded with wonderful fresh hop flavor as well. Love it!

satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2010
aroma is big roast but bigger hops, sharp citrus cuts through the murkiness of deep carmelization. appearance is opaque with film head and little lacing. flavor is stinging bitter citrus smashing a hole in a cloud of darkness. doesnt exactly mesh at times but as the session goes on the palate adjusts and it certainly fulfills my daily requirement of hops.

bookman10 (663) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2010
Pours a very thick, dark, oily black with little to no head (in my experience). Very complex set of flavors, including some chocolate, some coffee, and even something that almost verges on a grape soda-like flavor. A very sweet stout (almost too much so) but with excellent, silky mouth feel and a smooth finish. Worth a try, says Carl Kolchak!

thirdeye11 (5634) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2010
(22oz bomber via trade with StFun) pours jet Black with deep tan head that’s large and oily. Nose of big citrus hops, cream, dark chocolate, fudge. Taste of very dark chocolate, cola, nuts, citrus hops, with a thick chewy body that’s oily slick and creamy. Burnt toast on the finish and loses carbonation quickly so drink it fast. Great impy!

Bottle. Pours black with a small tan head. Flavor is surprisingly light with a big hop presence. Enjoyable but not very well balanced.
