Really nice and even if palate and taste. Would never know the high ABV. Rich toasted and roasted malts. Bitter and sugars balance with blackness of depth of taste and it’s reflective of color too. Tap Bif (2345) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - MAR 27, 2016
Bottle. Pours a black opaque color with a tan head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, dark fruit and bit of coffee. Taste of coffee, roasted malt, dark fruit and some chocolate. Solid bitterness that lingers into a dry finish. full body, thick and quite creamy, has a bit of a boozy feel, but still is an enjoyable beer. RobertDale (6856) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAR 12, 2016

"Got a good reason for taking the easy way out." Oh wait, that’s from Day Tripper by The Beatles. Ah well. Even though they’re divided by night and day, I still like the parallel. Underneath its clean-cut happy-go-lucky surface layer, Day Tripper was about sex and drugs. Night Tripper is like that. Its pitch black body is dangerously smooth and drinkable. The rich malts showcase chocolate, cream, roasted barley, and a hint of anise. At 10.8%, it’ll deviously trick you into thinking this is a much lighter beer than it is. Sometimes mischief is more fun when it’s hidden. HuskerTan (2398) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - FEB 28, 2016

Bottle to tulip. Jet black with an average beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is cocoa, dark roasted malts, and vanilla. Flavor is dark chocolate, creamy milk chocolate, vanilla, a little coffee, and hints of tobacco. Thick and creamy with a dry finish. Alcohol is invisible, there is no way that I would guess it is 11.5% Excellent beer. BeerInHeaven (480) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 25, 2016
