COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in a brewery not too far away and not too long ago... Imperial Stout Trooper is a full bodied stout with a majestic blend of seven different malts and Northern Brewer hops.

750 ml bottle to snifter (2011 vintage, shared by LitoIPA). Looks good; black with beige lacing. Smells of dark malt, dark chocolate, and roast. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

An impossible beer to find, even in CT - props to all the ratebeerians out there for searching, trading, burglarizing, and whatever else it took to get those bottles. Anyway, IST has a great flavor if you like bitterness, with plenty of roasted malt and resin hop flavor. Assertive. It is really dominated by roasted malt, with bitter coffee and just a bit of chocolate malt. Pretty smooth. This was not crafted with balance in mind, but it’s delicious, and the intense roasty bitterness is palatable because they had the foresight to keep the ABV under 9%. An epic beer, worthy of the hype.

Sample at First Sunday. Incredible aroma that is rich and chocolatey and roasty malt. Flavor comes through as much the same, smooth and rich chocolate again. Subtle and smooth. Very drinkable.

chinchill (2052) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 7, 2014
From bottle. Pours near black and opaque. Robust dark malt flavor but as sweet as many a milk stout. Lingering flavor of dark roasted malts with little burnt quality.

375 bottle to taster at new glarus. More of a euro roast. Ok imperial stout. Nothing special.

Klimaet (256) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a thin mocca head. Aromas of very sweet fruits, vanilla, fudge, sweet chocolate and coffee. Taste is not as Extreme sweet fruits but still has alot of it, more roasted malt and coffee. Bit thin body sadly.

Pours inky black with a big frothy brown head. Aroma is rich roasted malts, a little mocha and a little dark chocolate. Taste is mild carbonation, rich roasted malts, bitter chocolate. Went so well with our steak dinner. Had a few years on it, alcohol was essentially non existent.

Big IPA smell, smells bitter. But first aroma is roasted coffee beans. Reddish head. Bitter taste, an IPA stout

UPDATED: APR 19, 2014 Bottle pour. Black body, with a reddish head that disappears too quickly. Beautiful while it lasts. Smell is coffee, followed by cherries, and then some basic hops. Flavor is roast beans, blackberries, dark bread and some chicory spiciness. Even and well put together.
