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.

great brew. the only low mark is appearance it just sits there and waits for you. Can taste the quality wonderful full chocolate flavor. I may have served too chilled and it is getting better as it warms. right up there, outstanding!

Bomber: Wonderful dark thick chocolate, roasted malt aroma that comes off this at first. Caramel, toffee, lightly roasted nuts and a barley aroma intermingle into a wonderful smelling brew. Pours as thick as motor oil, jet black with a medium sized tan head that diminishes into a tan film that sticks at the top of the glass. Taste is nicely complex with a layering of flavor throughout the taste of the brew. At first, a pungent malt and oily chocolate flavor comes to the forefront, then the toffee and the roasted notes gently prickle the back of your throat. A slightly alcoholic twang is the only gripe that I have with this brew. Overall, A pretty solid Imperial Stout. Cheers!

pours like molasses, deep black imperial stout with a rather disappointing espresso colored head that dissipates quickly. notes of roasted coffee, barley, tobacco, milk chocolate. really luscious. could be more long lasting on the palate, kind of playful but fleeting. bottle @ the map room

pours thick...THICK black motor oil black...it takes some work to arouse the beautiful thick creamy dark brown head. solid meaty smokey chocolate coffee aroma. sweet mocha flavor leading into a spicy bittersweet mocha middle with a great warm spicy mocha molasses finish. beautiful THICK FULL creamy mouth feel. minimal carbonation. surprisingly great imperial stout from new holland

wxman (1492) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2008
Pours a midnight dark brown with a minimal dark tan head. Aroma is dark bitter chocolate. Taste is molassas, bitter unsweetened dark chocolate, sweet burnt malt, espresso, and some vinous character (merlot?) as well. Damn this is busy, and delicious! Outstanding Imperial!

Stine (1638) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 8, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 Pours creamy and very black; chocolate milk bubbles. Aroma is chunky and malty; mostly graham crackers and raspberry, with a burly presence of chocolate, caramel, and some mineral-like roasted character toward the back. Unabrasive and somwhat quiet, if very sweet, and softly warming. Taste is very cool and creamy, with a type of cantaloupe and floral sweetness that lends a gentle shimmer to the body of roasty tobacco, maple syrup, burnt honey and apples. Really very full and complex with a very different and attractive flavor profile. Hints of pineapple, caramel heavy espresso, and a mild rub of mineral acridity beneath a whole cache of ordinary sweetness that offers vanilla, creme brulee and chocolate; steamed green leaves and root vegetables flood the mid palate with pungent, earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel seems intensely chewy initially, but eventually gives a delicate caress of malt and reserved, peppery heat; toward the finish, the heat is never searing, but the flavor of alcohol in its dry, papery chemical tone is noticeably strong. Lots of vanilla, toasty caramel, and tangy golden fruit in the smack, with a roasty, rich meatiness that lasts beside a wink of metallic grounds. Not so unique in the end, and not the best for balance all around, but quite pleasant for the most part.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2008 22oz bottle. Props for the slightly eerie/creepy label. Surprised by this one. One of NHs best beers for sure. Aroma of creamy (far from astringent) roasted malt, milk chocolate, some dark fruit and alcohol. Pours nearly opaque with a dense khaki head of excellent retention producing spotty lacing. Quite sweet initially, but with a good amount of roasted and bitter malt astringency on the back end. Along the way there are notes of milk chocolate, caramel, coffee grounds, toasted marshmallow, vanilla. Wow. Pretty nice stuff. Thick and chewy on the tongue. It might be a bit much for some, but I quite like it. Finishes win a nice bitter roasted maltiness. A most unique Impy for sure.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2012 22oz from Sams, Durham. Right off the bat, let me say that this is - by a fair measure - the best beer Ive had from New Holland. In many ways, I was reminded of Southern Tiers Oat. Certainly this is, in terms of both complexity and punch, an imperial; but its got a very rich, chewy body that screams oatmeal. Its a bit too sweet for me, but only just - and the syrupy flavors blend well with the mild roasting to give it a really satisfying character. Nice stuff, NH.
