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.

From notes. On tap at The Wurst Bar on March 30. The pour is a lighter black with some hints of mahogany around the edges with a nice medium khaki head, with some incredible lacing. The aroma is surprisingly sweet. There is a good light fruity character and then the roasty malt and light licorice come through. The taste is very similar in the character. It’s almost got a bit more of a brown sugar type of sweetness, somewhat overshadowing the licorice and roast. There isn’t much bitterness to be found, which I see as a little lacking in a good imperial stout. The mouth feel is thin, lightly slick, with a good carbonation and a really sweet aftertaste. Definitely not one of my more favored impy stouts.

Bomber of this was awesome. Rich dark color. Taste improved with every sip. High APVbites with first sip but mellows to a sweet flavorful stout.

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.

’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.
