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!

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.

Great offering, dark motor oil pour with a deep khaki head. Nose is booze and bourbon, coffee and sweet licorice. Not bad. Flavor is similar, bourbon and dark malts up front, caramel sweetness and toffee notes. Nice overall with a good full body.

On draft at Max Burger in West Hartford, CT. Pour is motor oil black, a tan milk chocolate head with visible alcohol legs. Smell is dark roast with bakers chocolate, coffee, booze and hops. Taste is a very smooth combination of dark chocolate and coffee with a warming booze kick. Creamy silky mouthfeel. Quite good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml - kindly shared by Kraddel - bedankt Dylan! Pours dark brown with a tiny dark brown head. Very fruity and flowery aroma. Light body with watery base but flavourful taste: rose, dark fruits, exotic touch. Aftertaste of cherry oak, coffee, berries. Special indeed. Like.
