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

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2013 First time I had Night Stalker was on tap after Bourbon County Stout. This time I purchased a bomber bottle. Dark motor oil pour with about a half inch of head. Malt, light chocolate, mild hops up front with a slight malt alcohol finish. Does not taste like 11.5% but it definately warms you up.

Bottle split for Nudgerita from Elliot’s America trip. I can see why this is rated highly. Typical sweet american stout with that underlying, coating-like vanilla-esqu feel throughout. A nice viscous mouth feel and super dirty chocolate forward stuff. Works well on all levels. Great

2011 Night Stalker on May 8, 2015 Look - Oily black. Thin tan head. No lacing. Fine bubbles. Smell - Whiskey. Vanilla. Chocolate. Taste - Whiskey. Vanilla and chocolate fade to a tootsie roll like taste. Alcohol is there. Tannin finish. Palate - Thick and creamy. Carbonation doesn’t explode. Overall - It is going to sound blasphemous but it isn’t much different than the barrel aged vanilla Dark Lord I had at DLD.

This rating goes back a while... Didn’t bother with appearance but noted that the nose had beautiful sweet licorice, brown sugar and mild coffee roast. Flavour has light dark chocolate and again licorice and hops playing in the background. The mouthfeel is rich and the aftertaste is long with hints of hazelnut, vanilla and some raisin and sweet oak. Loved it.

22 oz bomber shared at 1st Sunday. Reminiscent of BCS. Highly complex and very rich flavor. Lasting, malty-BBL aftertaste. Full . Deep dark red-brown body.

Bottle thanks to Bruce. Pours a cloudy brown with medium beige head that lasts. The aroma is roast malts, coffee, chocolate, and wood. Medium mouth, sweet roasted malt, dark chocolate, cocoa, light booze finish, very nice.

rood (56) - Borgerhout, BELGIUM - MAR 22, 2015
Aroma is old cheese probably due to outdated hop. Taste is sugar, bourbon, vanilla, chocolate. The hops in the beer brings in a banana split experience. Body is very smooth. Good one, despite the skunky aroma. thanks berntholer for sharing

jbruner (2875) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 1, 2015
2012 bottle. Pours a deep brownish black with thin tan brown head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of big chocolate and roasty vanilla, dying hops. Taste follows, earthy overtones with big chocolate and roast. Wow, pretty nice, want to try it fresh.

2013 Keg. Pours black with a light brown, big, frothy head. Awesome froth totally drapes the glass. Thick, creamy and a sharp hop finish. Heavily roasted black malts, black licorice pipes, sharp earthy hops, caramel, coffee and some cocoa. Yummy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lots of roast and a little booze here. Milk chocolate. Some coffee. Bittersweet finish, but mostly bitter. Black pour without much head or lacing. Big. Faint hops in here. Tap at Meridian pint.
