I enjoyed this on tap courtesy of BA Stakem, thanks again man! Enjoyed chilled slightly from a snifter a perfect choice for a 90 degree day. A solid dark brown body with creamy beige cap similar to the colors of milky way when you look at the cross section after biting a hunk off. The smell is very malted milk ball-esque very creamy and has light caramel with a goodly amount of sweetness. The feel is full bodied with a mild roasted element, more caramel and toasted yet still pretty smooth and has light bitterness throughout. The quality of the feel is interesting is I perceive a smaller stout as I drink it which is unusual. The flavor is so malty yet layered with lots of different elements, sure there is the malt flavor which is pretty nice and caramel saturated, but the yeast gives a nice gentle fruitiness underneath the sweet elements and mild roasted tinges. The flavor has a good toasted grain tinge and accents of hops and alcohol buoy the overall Imperial quality of the stout, I will say again this is so well crafted it gives the impression of a mid strength not a high gravity stout. The smooth cocoa element is what stands out to me with some woody elements and gentle alcohol in the finish w/ some pine notes from the hops. The beer finishes semi-dry. I think Imperial Stout Trooper deserves all the praise it gets it is such a splendid Imperial Stout it is a great example of the style. New England Crafted a great brew, thanks Stakem for sharing this delicious beer!

I think it’s a 2011 or 12. I had high hopes for this beer but it didn’t age well. Very oxidized but probably very good fresh.

ryanfolty (2268) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - DEC 22, 2015
December 22, 2015 - bottle via trade from a long time ago, but not a galaxy far far away. Believe this is a 2011 bottle and saved this for the release of Episode VII that I saw tonight. Dark pour with limited head. Aroma was roasty, sweet and bit of alcohol. Taste was consistent with aroma, but also had a slight bitter finish.
