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

Bottle I split at a tasting. Pours solid black with a very nice brown head. Nose is very sweet with chocolate and caramel - definitely resembles a nice malty barleywine in the flavor department. Flavor is rich and sweet with toasty malt and nice citrusy hops. A hell of a beer. Definitely glad this one survived being stuffed in my luggage for the flight from Chicago to Austin...

Wow - incredible sweet grapefruit citrus hope aroma out of the bottle. Then it pours a midnight black with a gorgeous mocha head... When in the glass and after breathing a bit a surprising and very distinctive juniper note arises. In addition that grapefruit, heavily roasted bitter malts, dark chocolate and coffee. The aroma dyes down after the pour losing a decent amount of complexity. Tasted very bitter - hops, roasted malt, incredibly rich milk chocolate. Just an incredibly tasting impy stout. --Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big dark chocolatey goodness met with roasted coffee. Enjoyable medium sweetness. Hops weren’t as explicit as the description led one to expect. Bold and well worth returning to.

2012.03.14 - 650ml bottle in pint glass. Bottled 03/06/10. Pours very dark, basically black. Very opaque, no light gets through. Caramel colored head is active and endures even after settling. Aroma is a bit of raisiny sort of sweetness and a bit of smoke. Taste matches, sweetness up front and finishing with a bit of alcohol warmth and bitterness. This is a pretty heavy stout, and strong at 11.7%. Not bad.

22 oz bottle - 2012 bottle. Pours viscous jet black, with huge tan head, lasting and beautiful intricate lacing. Big pungent hoppy aromas of grapefruit, oranges, slight malt and coffee but mostly all hops. Medium bodied. Tastes of big fruit, malty bread, and finishes with bittering goodness. Lots going on, very fresh.

Perfect pitch black body. Brilliant aroma of heavy coffee malts, mild hops, incredible depth. Taste is overwhelming. Raisins, vanilla. Though hard to describe this is clearly world class beer, abundant in character and easily keeping its distance from other venerable beers.

Black with a small dark brown head. I get a mostly chocolate and alcohol aroma with only a minimal amount of hops. I wouldn’t say this was a "hoppy stout" but it does carry more bitterness than the Bourbon County. Really nothing surprising, but still a great beer.

22 oz. bottled poured into a snifter. Jet black. No light passes through. Nothing resembling a head except a slight coating of mocha bubbles that quickly fade into a ring around the edge of the glass. The smell is booze primarily. Chocolate comes a close second. Coffee and roasty flavors linger in the background. Chocolate dominates the flavor. Dark fruits in the middle flavor that quickly fade to coffee bitterness. Thick. Coats the mouth. Low carbonation. Delicious.

Big sticky mouthfeel, tons of nobel hop aroma, flavor and bitterness. This imperial stout puts a huge emphasis on the hops. Nice appearance with a lasting dark ring of foam. This was a bit more hoppy than I like for an imperial stout, but that’s just me. Pretty good stuff.
