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.

Bottle: Courtesy of renhed...onyx black pour with no head. Roasted and chocolate malts dominate with additional notes of black cherries and a bit of toffee. This is very deceiving body-wise, I wasn’t expecting this to be as silky as it is. This has a malt-infused spinal column with notes of chocolate and dark fruits.

Very dark brown with a medium brown head that laces. Aroma of roasted malts, mild smoke, molasses and a touch of alcohol. Sweet taste of roasted malts, mild coffee, brown sugar and light chocolate and alcohol. Thick, smooth and strong – this an excellent imperial stout.

Bomber. The body is perfectly black with a light orangeish tan head. The aroma is rich coffee and anise. There is also some sweet milk chocolate. The mouthfeel is very full and chewy. The taste is anise with some light vineous notes. There is also some baking chocolate that comes out as you drink. The finish is a little ashy with some woody notes coming through. After you drink more, you get some alcohol burn, but this is not too hot. Nicely made.

The commercial description would be spot on if the word chocolate was included. Rich is a great description. Dark with a thin head.

22oz bottle. Pours dark brown - black. Aroma of coffee and alcohol. Night Tripper is an Imperial Stout brewed for a Fat Tuesday release... This is a "Lent" beer? Huh? Rich malts. Nice hop balance.

hopdog (11560) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2008
22oz bottle acquired in a few trades. Its been one of those days at work, so I grabbed the 1st beer in my cellar that I saw was over 10%. Now to start the numbing of the pain of working with a bunch of *****s. Poured a dark brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate, roast, coffee, and some molasses. Tastes of dark fruits (raisins), caramel, chocolate, vanilla, light roast, and light coffee. Brown sugary sweet too. Light alcohol in the finish but overall well hidden.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 7, 2008
[bottle] Pours black with a small tan head. Very sweet aroma of candi sugar, as well as roasted barley. Flavor is overly sweet, with some bitterness coming through on the finish. Mouthfeel is rich, but still just too sweet for me.

jake65 (3444) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Bottle: Dark brown near black with a big tan head. Aroma is roasty and choco filled with some light bitters. Taste retains a lot of roastiness, chocolate, coffee, and into some bittersweetness. A bit hot still. I would love to age one... maybe compare it to a Stone RIS? The mouthful was excellent in richness and body. Thanks Jeremy!

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Bottle: Black with a nice tan head. Nose of light soy, vegetal roast, plums and alcohol, some modest american hops. The flavor is balanced, sweet, acidic and astringent in just the right amounts. Strong alcohol tail. Not overly complex but it’s got a solid body and malt background. Yummy molasses and vanilla notes. Good Impy!
