COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Night Tripper is an Imperial Stout brewed for a Fat Tuesday release. Dark, mysterious and poetic, Night Tripper's abundance of roasted malts, combined with flaked barley create a rich, roasty beer with deeply intense and lush flavors. Night Tripper's layered, nuanced tones invite intrigue and reward a curious palate.

Poured into a glass prior to Shreveport’s Gemini Mardi Gras parade. This beer is a delight. The highlight is the after taste. Very much would like to have again.

taster @ tailspin beer fest. poured a dark brown to almost black. no head to speak of. the aroma or deep dark roasted malts and chocolate and hints of coffee. the flavor was more of the same. lots of deep roasted malts and chocolate in this medium heavy bodied beer. lots of other flavors that come through as it rolls from front to back.

’12 bottle. Still black pour with a thin slick of tan foam. Heavy fudge and chocolate in the aroma with some roast and background pine/bitterness. Thick chocolate in the taste with darker malt underneath and alcohol notes with hop bitterness. Some lingering alcohol heat after each sip. Coating mouthfeel. Decent imperial stout.

22 oz. bottle purchased @ Binny’s Lincoln Park, Chicago. 2013 vintage. Brown head that dissipated slowly. Aroma of licorice, dark chocolate, dark fruit and light roast. Flavor starts with chocolate, caramel and molasses. Licorice in the middle of the sip with a strong alcohol bite in the finish that tells me it’s young. Big warming sensation after the swallow. Sticky, kind of syrupy mouthfeel with a full body. Sweet and boozy. Good

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2014 Very dark pour with a light cream colored very thick head. Has a big toasted almond smell very interesting. A nice thick texture with a creamy finish. Toasted almond flavors continue here and go all the way down. A smooth chocolate and vanilla taste covers it all. A very good amount of alcohol feel which really makes this brew a step higher. Also a very decent price.

From bomber. Pours a dark dark brown with a touch of head. Malty aroma with chocolate. Nice hints of dark chocolate in taste. A bit fizzy, and thin on the mouthfeel, but pretty good. BBL aged version should be very good. (For the sake of science I added a touch of bourbon to my sample... very nice) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Triangle Wine Co. Pours black with a light brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and a little dark fruit underneath as well. Taste is chocolate and a little fruit up front fading to a strong coffee finish. Body is average, slightly thinner than I like in an Imperial Stout, slick mouthfeel. Overall this is a pretty good Imperial Stout.

Draft to taster. Looks decent; could definitely be more viscous though. A translucent cola with thin light beige head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt, chocolate, and roast. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.
