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.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2009 Bottle thanks to LeopoldStoch, thanks man. Poured a deep black color with a thin beige head that diminished to a layer leaving nice lacing. Aroma of chocolate, light coffee, and roasted malt. A light, smooth chocolate entry greets the tongue with a light chalky character that leads into a nice roasted malts and a smooth, lingering coffee finish with a hint of hops. Very well balanced and smooth, a good dry chalky finish. Thanks a bunch Brandon, this beer was awesome.

Bottle, bought at Champanes, pours black with dark brown around the edges, some small tan bubbles emerge unless the ale was swirled, leaves a bit of an oily film on the glass when swirled, chocolate, dark chocolate and roasted malt aromas, malt and cake sweetness with a faint burnt aroma? Has roasted malt and chocolate flavors with faint burnt malt and coffee bean flavors, a bit of warming alcohol on the tongue but this is almost at room temperature, has a bite at the finish and leaves roasted malt, some bitter coffee and sweetness on the palate, a bit of vegetal coffee bean taste? More then medium mouth feel, not a lot of carbonation, a touch oily on the tongue but smooth to drink, has a good amount of sweetness that may get tiring after awhile depending on what you like, aging may help that some, not a bad example.

Bottle. Pours out a dark black color, looks like it is almost flat - just for a second. Then a big brown head comes out of now where on this one. Smell is full of roasted malts, chocolate, caramel. Smells like sweet coffee. Taste is really smooth, full of chocolate flavors and coffee. This one really sneaks up on you at almost 11%. After the bomber I went to bed. Good stuff, a very good sipping beer.

Outstanding Imperial Stout. Surprisingly tasty. Nice color. Good, sturdy nose. Excellent balance. Hoppy, but yet, also extremely malty with great character. Lingering finish, that seems to last and last. A sleeper and a great beer. Thanks to Jake.

This one is black and thick. This one has a small but thick tan head. This one does not have a lot of lacing. This one smells a bit like chocolate and molasses. This one has a hint of a espresso in the aroma. This one has a faint brown sugar sweetness that lurks on the back of my tongue. This one is mostly dominated by molasses and bitter dark chocolate. This one has a slight alcohol burn at the finish.

On tap at Vintage Estates. Pours a deep opaque black color with a frothy light brown head. Decent lacing. Lots of deep coffee and bitter chocolate notes. A rich oily mouthfeel. Coffee flavor with chocolate and almost some cinnamon flavors. A warming alcohol flavor on the tongue with a nice bitterness.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - MAR 12, 2008
bottled. Black & bold, aggressive & alcoholic. Mostly alcohol in the linger but the roast & choc. notes here are obvious. A thin body for a imp.stout but otherwise; Nicely done!

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - MAR 12, 2008
Poured from a 22oz bomber and served in a snifter. This beer poured an almost black dark brown with no head at all. Not the greatest look...almost like a flat cola. The aroma of the beer was impressivily powerful. Notes of molasses, charred malt, strong chocolate, and freshly ground French roast coffee beans filled the air around the glass. The flavor consisted of licorice, molasses, burnt malts, baker’s chocolate, and some warming alcohol. The mouthfeel was thick and full-bodied with a very low level of carbonation. Smells better than it tastes, tastes better than it looks. All in all...pretty nice.

Draught sample at Vintage Estates, courtesy of Nuts. Rich chocolate aroma, molasses, mild smoke. Sweet and rich maltiness. Light hop character but masked in the oozing imperialness. Dark oily black, impenetrable, with thin lacing brown foamy head. Oily thick body with light-medium carbonation. Starts really sweet with rich malt. Caramel, molasses, smoke, chocolate. Very malty and somewhat cloying. Finishes wiht a nice hoppy dry-bitter character that evens out with the malt and syrupy sweetness. Lactose creamy finish and after. Big stout.
