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

On tap at Rattle N Hum in NYC. Pours pitch black with a brown head and aroma of sweet roasted malt and alcohol. Taste is sweet, a heavy mouthful with lots of liquorice, chocolate, roasted malt, dark fruits, and alcohol with a warming, long, burning finish. Great tasting, complex brew

Reviewed 8-21-10 I bought this bottle in DC back in March and I’ve really been looking forward to it. I split this one with my wife. Ap: Pitch Black with very little head and slight carbonation. Even the froth on this one is dark! Ar: Smells like chocolate and Coca-Cola with a slight bitterness in the nose with a touch of carmel. T: VERY bitter - even the aftertaste cuts like a knife. The chocolate starts to hit hard after a few sips, but the soda taste still remains. I’ll definitely give this one credit for not being sugary, sticky, or syrupy. Many have described a fruity undertone, but I’m not getting much at all. P: Bitterness lingers even a couple of minutes after tasting. If BCBS is considered a sipper, this one is even more so. O: The bitterness and ABV might be too overwhelming for some and I have to admit that it did start to overstay its welcome a bit. Overall: If your looking for a RIS with fruit overtones: figs, cherries, dates, etc .... perhaps this is not the most appropriate beer for you. My wife, who likes BCBS, Dark Lord, and just about every Imperial stout she has tried, did not like this one. Since I generally like both Coke and dark bitter chocolate, I dug it!

Black pour with a dark tan head. Chocolate, dark fruits, toffee and just enough hops added in to make it balance. Damn good.

Patrickctenchi (4958) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Pours oily black...ruby edged, with a dark brown ring. Dark fruit, raisin, chocolate, aroma. Flavour is mild licorice, berry, dark cherry, chocolate...malt. Sticky sweet, roast... Alcohol is evidenced only by a slight sting at the back of the throat. Darren Mcgavin would be proud.

2010 bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a thick black with a dense head of dark brown foam. Aroma has notes of licorice, coffee, currants, and molasses. Taste is rich, earthy, malty sweetness. Age has done this beer well. I wouldn’t mind having this one again.
