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.

Tap. The beer pours to a pitch black body with a thin, creamy light brown head. The beer is viscous and has an aroma that reminds me of the hop used in FFF Black Sun. Green citrus meets chocolate bars and light coffee. The flavor is a tad overpowered on the hops. I swear it was like bubble gum fruits and mandarin oranges mellowed along with lots of chocolate and coffee. Rich sweet coating mouthfeel. I was unhappy with the dominating hop profile, but it was still a good beer. It’s no BCS!

Had this on tap at the Hopcat in Grand Rapids. Strangely enough when I held it to the light it wasn’t quite as opaque as would be expected from an Imperial Stout that should be pitch black. Nice foamy head with good retention. I got very little aroma. Flavorwise-I got a lot of licorice to go with chocolate and roast bitterness out of it and the alcohol really comes through but in a good way. I was very happy with this beer all the way down.

On tap at The Ginger Man. Pours black with hardly any head. Aroma of booze, sweet roasted malt, cocoa, and raisins. Flavor is sweet with toffee, lots of caramel, honey cracker, nougat, and raisin. Certainly very complex but I guess I just wasn’t a fan of the flavors it had. 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

Tap at Clybourn brewpub, Chicago. Black pour with virtually no head. Aroma of chocoalte/coffee/booze. Tastes malty, chocolatey, dark fruit, coffee, sweet. Quite heavy going and complex.

Tried this in 2010 - bottle was 2010 and it needs more time in the bottle. Very boozy and had a strange oder to it. Taste was good and very hoppy.

bigtaster (901) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Bottle in snifter. Pours jet black, almost no head. Aroma of hops, lots of dark burnt malts. This flavor is intense with a huge maltyness taking over your palate after the hops hits you. This one needs a few years, it’s too much too fast, too many flavors competing against each other rather than complimenting.

DarkBeerChick (155) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2010
Pours a deep brownish amber that leaves a yellow tinge and lacing on the glass. Smells of raisin, sweet chocolate, prune juice and alcohol. It’s tart with a sweet kick and slightly bitter finish. Prune, alcohol, toffee and medicine. Different.

Pinball (11940) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2010
very dark, small light brown head. roasted stuff, fresh hops in the aroma. very balanced and delicate. mild. flavor is very interesting. strong roasted grains, caramel, malts, strong hoppy balance, crystal clear giant clash between great hops , great malty sweetness and great roasted stuffness. Alc. is a little bit too dominant as in many goose island dark beers, but i must admit this one is clearer and more to the point than most of them.
