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!

Can @ home. Opaque pitch black color, full sized thick and quite creamy dark brown head. Aroma is malts, liquorice, firm roast. Taste malts, roasted malts, dark malts, light liquorice, malt bitter, medium to firm bitter finish. Medium body, carbonation is a bit sharp sort of speak, but not annoying. Decent stout.

From notes. Enjoyed this one over at Chris’s house on March 26 for a beer and smoked meats get together. 500 mL bottle opened by me. The pour is a thinner light black color with a thicker beige head that lingers, offering a touch of lace. The aroma is heavy licorice, light dark fruits, and a big bitter roast. It’s surprising how bitter this one is. There is a light chocolate presence toward the back, which helps with a little sweetness entering the mix. The flavors are quite similar. There isn’t any one flavor that really drowns it out, though the levels of roast and bitterness are high. It’s got a good balance with the chocolate and dark fruits. The mouth feel is nice and thick, but the carbonation is off. It’s a little too bubbly for a nice heavy stout. The aftertaste is all roasted malt and bitter licorice. There is a hint of chocolate, but it’s just a hint. This is a good one from NEBCO, I hope I get to try the barrel aged one with it one day!
