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.

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!

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.

BLADT (587) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 18, 2014
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.

BlowOffTube (455) - Michigan, USA - APR 16, 2014
Thick black pour and decent tan head. Burnt chocolate aroma and milk and roastiness. Some chocolate and roasted flavors first but then a weird OFF! Bug spray in the middle to end. Ends sweet and roasty. Don’t know what that is but I might be able to keep the bugs off for awhile. Medium body light carbonation.

Dark brown black. Beautiful lace. Oily feel. Aroma of dusty mocha , mild cherry. Sweet tinge in the nose. Taste of burnt cookies, cocoa, slight red wine grape. This is big and bossy and really really good.

22 ounce bottle poured into a mini snifter. Pours a near black with no head. The aroma has a lot of vanilla. Some cherry notes and roast are in there as well. The taste is really sweet. Thick body with a low to medium carbonation.
