Goose Island Night Stalker
From Goose Island – A heavily-hopped imperial stout, Night Stalker is a heavyweight of a beer. It delivers a formidable punch of hops and rich roasted malt notes to the nose in a silky body that’s as dark as night.
Goose Island Brewing – Goose Island Night Stalker – 22 oz. bottle poured into a goblet. 11.7% abv.
