Review – New England Brewing Imperial Stout Trooper
From New England Brewing – 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.
New England Brewing Co. – Imperial Stout Trooper – 12 oz. bottle poured into a goblet. 8.5% abv. From John in CT.
Appearance: Pours a thick looking midnight brown with a 1/2 inch of dense tan head.
Aroma: Roasted coffee, dark chocolate, roasted nuts and a little bit of booze.
Taste: Roasted coffee, dark chocolate, wood smoke, spicy hops, and more layers of chocolate.
Mouthfeel: Silky and sticky and smooth.
Overall: An enjoyable sipper, really complex, really tastey, and has a great gimmick as well.
