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% IBUs 60 Color 100 Aroma Hops Mt.

22oz bottle dated 2/19/10, thanks Tom. Deep dark black with small rich tan head. Light roasty coffee, patent malt, touch of vanilla, but mostly tons of danky hop. Viscous body with proper carbonation. Toasted chocolate malt, vanilla, bourbon and nice sweet Simcoe hops. Really dig this.

22. thanks kan! pours jet black with a little loose dark tan head. big tingly grapefruit nose, crazy hop presence on top of coffee. a little bit of alcoholic sting on the nose. some bourbon, vanilla, and oak fight through underneath that. creamy, somewhat sticky thick body. chocolate, grapefruit, coffee, bourbon, oak, and vanilla on the mid palate. long chocolate and grapefruit finish. tastes way, way better than it sounds on paper. yum.

Thanks to mar for sharing this bottle. I have been looking forward to it. The beer pours dark brown to black with a brown head. The aroma is coffee and roasted malts with some piney hops. The flavor is more of the same with the coffee and malts being overshadowed by the strong hopping. Medium, very creamy mouthfeel and low carbonation.

Bottle marked 2/19/10 0611 thanks to mar. Possibly the best beer of the night. Pours with a large tan head over a black body. Glass coating. Aroma is damn hoppy! Citrus, pine, pretty awesome and fresh. Taste is sweet, rich, chocolaty, hops, herbalness. Oh lord this stuff is good! Syrupy, creamy, thick mouthfeel. Awesome stuff!

RBWG10 pours dark brown, light tan head. Aroma and flavors, very thin hop touch, mostly malt and chocolate, thick palate with grainy finish. Dry-hopping adds a nice mild bitterness to this beer. Overall is a perfect balance of booze, stout profile balanced out with lots of hop goodness.

Narnad (1471) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2010
Pours a very dark black with a nice dense, deep tan head that fades down fairly fast. Aroma has a very hefty chinook/centennial creating a hard weedy bitterness with a bit of citrus mixed in with a strong roasted note following the hops and includes notes of coffee, chocolate and some burned malt character. Flavor has a very strong hop leafy bitterness up front that stays for about a 1/4 of the tasting. This bitter bite fads to a coffee and then chocolate and smoke malt flavor with it finishing with some sweet prune and licorice notes. Body is very, very heavy with the texture having an extremely oily and slick feeling from all of the sugars. Carbonation is higher but very fine with just enough to leave a decent lacing on the glass. Overall a fantastic brew! Truly an imperial stout with a great combination of strong hopped bitterness that compliments the very complex malt flavors found within the brew.

Aroma is of crisp hops with some chocolate and a bit of smoke. Dark with a thin tan head. Taste is of chocolate, caramel, and with dry hops that fade quickly to a semi-sweet malt. Great Beer. Seems closer to a Cascade Black IPA which I dont have a problem with.

monkeychugg55 (903) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2010
Pours a dark viscous brown with a small, light brown head. The aroma is, of course, very hoppy, with a definite Simcoe presence. Its also got a lot of heavy roast, chocolate, and alcohol. The flavor is rich and burnt, with a long, hot, hoppy, bitter finish. Very thick, with lively carbonation. Definitely a slow sipper, but very enjoyable.

Pailhead (5036) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAR 13, 2010
Bottle: The aroma is loaded with citrus and piney hops along with some chocolate, molasses, fruit, and faint roastiness. The aroma definitely leans towards the Black IPA/IIPA with a tad more sweetness. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a large tan head with decent retention. The flavor starts sweet with lots of chocolate, molasses, and light fruit. The finish has lots of citrus hops (grapefruit and orange), light pine, light roastiness, and just the slightest hint of coffee. As hoppy as it is, its still pretty sweet and not all that bitter. The 11.7% is hidden very well. Medium-full bodied with soft carbonation and silky/creamy mouthfeel.
