22oz - Aroma of dark roasted malts, lots of cocoa and chocolate, barley and cream. Pours black with a small brown head and good lacing. Flavor is very roasty, chocolate and burnt malts with a creamy finish. Palate is dry, smooth and silky. Quite tasty and easy drinking for 10.8%. Best brew Ive had from New Holland.

Dark color. Smell of coffee, chocolate, caramel, malt, hops and dark fruit. Tastes the same. Very nice and very smooth. I will have this again!

BigBang (299) - Indiana, USA - MAY 23, 2008
This beer is terrible - gives dark beer a bad name. No head (ever), bad blend of flavor (too much licorice of course). lousy mouthfeel. Considering asking for my money back.

Black with tan head. Roast, sweet malt, and chocolate aroma. Licorice, sweet caramel malt, roast, and alcohol notes. Fairly balanced with mild bitter finish.

Bottle: Courtesy of renhed...onyx black pour with no head. Roasted and chocolate malts dominate with additional notes of black cherries and a bit of toffee. This is very deceiving body-wise, I wasnt expecting this to be as silky as it is. This has a malt-infused spinal column with notes of chocolate and dark fruits.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Very dark brown with a medium brown head that laces. Aroma of roasted malts, mild smoke, molasses and a touch of alcohol. Sweet taste of roasted malts, mild coffee, brown sugar and light chocolate and alcohol. Thick, smooth and strong this an excellent imperial stout.

heemer77 (5317) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Bomber. The body is perfectly black with a light orangeish tan head. The aroma is rich coffee and anise. There is also some sweet milk chocolate. The mouthfeel is very full and chewy. The taste is anise with some light vineous notes. There is also some baking chocolate that comes out as you drink. The finish is a little ashy with some woody notes coming through. After you drink more, you get some alcohol burn, but this is not too hot. Nicely made.

The commercial description would be spot on if the word chocolate was included. Rich is a great description. Dark with a thin head.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - MAY 13, 2008
22oz bottle. Pours dark brown - black. Aroma of coffee and alcohol. Night Tripper is an Imperial Stout brewed for a Fat Tuesday release... This is a "Lent" beer? Huh? Rich malts. Nice hop balance.

Bottle Packed back from one of my beer mules. Strait from New Holland. Pours out almost pitch black a little brown. topped with a tan head. A nice sweet aroma of roast and chocolate. Tast more of the sweetness and roast malt. I also picke up some moleasses. pretty good.
