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.

Huge whiff of the hops upon pouring...faded quickly to a boozy roasted malt. Flavor matched the nose of this one well. Kind of a burnt caramel roasted malt flavor with a big boozy finish...nice imperial stout. Bottled on date of 11/19/12. Didn't get much of the hops so this one may do better with some age. Brewer suggests drinking within 180 days of bottling. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2012 vintage, on draft at the York River Landing (Nov. 2015). BCBS without the barrel aging. It’s got a very, very distinct smell and flavor that reminds me of the BCBS’ marshmallow sweetness. Interesting, unique, and actually a really top-notch imperial stout.

rouhlas (2843) - GREECE - NOV 28, 2015
650ml bottle (v2010) shared at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki. Black color with nice brown head. Malty aroma, roasted, dark dried fruits, chocolate when it gets warmer, caramel, butter, wineous, wood, light alcohol. Sweet and bitter like aroma with soy and some coffee notes. Full silky body with soft carbonation. Probably not a good bottle.

Sarlacc83 (1953) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Bottle. 2/19/2010 date. A: Black in a way which would please Batman. Thin, dying mocha head. Lacing. N: Vanilla, cocoa, coffee, black peppercorn, rye, earth, milk chocolate, a hint of toffee and caramel. Smoke and almost like a rough tar. Not gross like that, but it seems like the right description somehow. Light oxidation from its 5 years of age. T: Quite sweet, but not cloying like the latest iterations of Bourbon County Stout. A bit hoppy still. M: Thick, motor oil body, light carbonation, alcohol is very well hidden. O: This was the big time, long ago, before In-Bev took over production and turned BCBS into a call for insulin. Only minor oxidation after 5 years, too, which is impressive.

TorbenJensen (1464) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2015
It’s thick as oil and hangs in thick lace on the glass inside. Smoke and dried fruits rises from the glass estimates vinous association. The taste is very rich and creamy and is heavy in the mouth. Prunes, grapes, plums and port wine fill for the taste buds with the distinct flavor of smoke and oak.
