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.

12oz into a Allagash stemmed glass, bottle says 11.5 abv, 2015 edition. Pours a black meshed with brown highlights. White/tan creamy lacing, ample head, retention is solid. Aroma of booze, toasty malts, black licorice, figs, blackberry. Taste of bitter malts, roasty and chewy with a tang. Choco, vanilla, dark roast coffee, booze in aftertaste. A big brew with a large presence. Drinkable in a slow train environment, fortified by friends and time. An imp stout through and through, with excellence balance and the knowledge of you ate getting what was promised. A nice endeavor in late April in the Western mass hills while spring is hiding somewhere. Excellent.

DocJitsu (1154) - Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Poured into a pint chalice. Very dark brown with a large head, but just right for aesthetics. The head is a mochachino froth color. Cadbury chocolate and chocolate liquer on the nose. A little marshmallow is noted too. Moderately thick. Items detected in the aromas appear in the flavors, except there’s a notable smokiness that doesn’t get expressed in the nose.

574deadzone (1155) - North Central, Indiana, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Pours pitch black with a thick khaki mocha head that hangs out a while and leaves a thick wall of soapy lace. Nose involves deep dark chocolate, roasty notes, creamy marshmallow, a dash of licorice, spicy pepper, and stone fruit. Quite sweet, decently bitter. Thick, full body, velvety, luxurious, soft, sharp with bitterness, finishing long toasty and warm. Really nice brew, decadent and dessert like.

Luvystypotables (938) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Amazing aroma of bourbon, coffee and hints of chocolate. Pours a black color with no head. Taste of bourbon and chocolate with hints of coffee with a medium body and a creamy feel. A boozy finish

Rich, roasty and dark. Thinnish, quickly disappearing head. A little boozy. Coffee at the end and a fantastic dark chocolate character.

kambei70 (749) - - JAN 15, 2015
2014 bottle. Black/dark brown in color with a small, filmy khaki head. Aroma is cream, brewed coffee, milk chocolate, and barely a hint of cayenne. The taste is ground coffee, cream, dark chocolate and a nice herbaceous bitterness that balances out the sweetness. Alcohol taste becomes more prominent as it warms. A slight peppery taste in the finish. A medium mouthfeel ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2014 vintage. ABV is 11.5%. Pours very dark, almost black, with a nice tan head. Aroma of malts and alcohol. Taste is rich and fairly straight-forward. A good, solid imperial stout, but not great. Thumbs up.
