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 Ė 11.7% IBUís Ė 60 Color Ė 100 Aroma Hops ĖMt.

tom10101 (4514) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle (22 oz) bottled in 2010. Traded by pushkinwow, thanks Stephen! Black with a small brown head and little lacing. Aroma is really sweet with molasses, caramel, toffee, malt, liquorice and dark fruits. Taste is ultra sweet (cloying) with caramel, toffee, slight roasted malt a very slight hoppy finish. Mouthfeel is sirupy. Good Imperial Stout but too sweet for my liking. Weíve splitted the bottle 3 ways and I had more than enough. Maybe it was more drinkable when more hoppy.

Leighton (16261) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC - Clerkenwell, London - another big one from Seth! Pours black-brown with a creamy, tan head. Dark malt nose with burnt marshmallow and milk chocolate. Big sweet flavor, some dark malts, moderate roast, big alcohol, burnt sugars, some dark fruits, raisins and licorice. Full bodied with average to high, creamy carbonation. A bit of heat on the finish, more dark sugars, decent roast, robust earthy bitterness. Itís fairly hot. Very good, but not outstanding.

nuplastikk (5367) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 20, 2013
750ml bottle courtesy of Brian. Very unique, melon fruit tones with a massive Impy Stout background. Massive flavor, and the hops are really out there, not really making sense, but cool because of that. Almost approaching pepper, soaked in island fruit. Tocacco, chocolate, maybe a touch of vanilla. Pretty cool offering. The aroma is a little odd.

Ron (3270) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 8, 2013
I got out of work today an hour and a half early to stop at Tap and Mallet and have a couple of nice beers on way home. The weather was so bad traffic was at a crawl. I did not dare stop. The 25 minute commute too 1.5 hours just to get home. I broke out this bottle to celebrate my 5 years at Paychex. Poured jet black and a small head. Alcohol aroma, black licorice, dark chocolate and deep roast. Big black licorice flavor, overwhelms a lot o other notes. Some alcohol notes. Piney hop bitterness. Somewhat harsh but still pretty good

sailracer (473) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Tap. Pours a very thick black with chocolate head. Very hearty beer with lots of chocolate malt flavor. I didnít pick up much hop flavor in this despite the claims of dry hopping. Strong alcohol flavor. Maybe a little too strong for my tastes. I definitely prefer the bourbon county stout to this one.

MadRobin (2540) - Silver Spring, USA - MAR 19, 2013
On tap 4 oz. pour at Meridian Pint in Columbia Heights, Washington, DC. Opaque, virtually black with tan head and excellent lacing. Aroma of smokey roasted malt, leather, roasted coffee, chocolate, citrus and pine. Taste of roasted malt, brown sugar, grapefruit, molasses and coffee with a hefty alcohol burn. Full body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

queenholly (3603) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Bottle. Musty sweet chocolate malt aroma. Black brown with a small tan head. Cloyingly sweet earthy chocolate malt flavor. Full syrupy body, soft carbonation. Far, far too sweet for my taste, but to be fair, itís pretty good.

Described as a very hoppy imperial stout - although I have to agree with a lot of the other reviewers in saying that the flavor is a bit different than expected. There is some "funk" in there. Not a Belgian wild yeast funk, more of the funk that you would get in a questionable Ukrainian or Russian pilsner. But here it works and adds to the complexity of the brew. Itís an imperial stout that hides its ABV pretty well, with some funk, and medium bitterness.
