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.

Dark brown color with a thick tan head. Chocolate and Carmal nose. Chocolate and malty flavor with a mild hop finish. Smooth feel on the palate.

I tracked down a bottle of this at Lukas Liquor Superstore in Ballwin, MO. The pour was surprisingly rich and the slow developing head after pouring was equally as rich. The flavor was extremely mild and the heat from the alcohol was minimal. I think that with more clever packaging this could be another top imperial. Will try again. Highly recommended!!!

Sampled at Dark Lord Day 09. Fantastic Impy Stout. Pours black, opaque with tan head. Tons of dark fruit flavor, burning alcohol at the back. Stains the plastic cup I had it in. Excellent, all ’round.

Aroma of dark roasted chocolate with a low off-white head that barely lingered. Roasted grain with a distinct taste of dark cacao with a long slightly burnt finish. Full bodied, rich and savory. Yummy.

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.

Bottle. Pours dark blackish with 1-finger off-tan head and lacing that dissipates somewhat quickly after a nice coating. Nose is roasty dark malt, chocoff, creamy, with late figgy and brown sugar notes in the flavor. Solid complexity, fairly hefty palate, and well hidden alcohol make this yet another world class example from this, my favorite beer style with the possible exception of IIPA.

Bomber pourd into a tulip glass. NHNT pours darker than any beer I’ve ever seen. It is truely black. The head didn’t even appear until 30 seconds after the pours. This is some thick stuff. The aroma is mouth watering with roasted grains, oatmeal and light coffee. The flavor is full of charred wood, slightly bitter coffee and plum. The alcohol makes a nice presence. The body is oily and thick. You can chew this beer as easily as drink it. This is the best New Holland beer I’ve had yet.

22 oz bomber. Pours a thick oily pitch black with a tiny light brown head. Aroma of sweet roasted malts, barley, black licorice and alcohol. Taste of sweet roasted malts, black licorice, barley, dark chocolate and alcohol. A big beer with a big punch.

650 ml. Opaque with a one-finger head that tries to last. Chocolate, coffee, cream, date, and maybe some cherry in the aroma. Bittersweet, complex flavors of coffee with cream, cocoa, orange, black strap molasses, prunes, cured tobacco, dried hickory, a touch of alcohol, oak, and slight iron. Heavy body is smooth, finishes dry, and has just the right mouthfeel (not too syrupy-sticky and not too watery).
