A-Pours near black. There is some light penetrating the bottom of the glass. Skinny top of tan cream. Islands of lacing.
S-Loaded with coffee beans and burnt oatmeal. Baker's chocolate. More coffee. Roasty and slightly burnt. Hershey's syrup and vanilla.Smells more like coffee beans than actual brewed coffee which is awesome. Java bomb.
T-A cupped palm-full of fresh coffee beans. More Hershey's syrup and burnt oats. The tiniest hint of tobacco. Carbonated coffee. All the flavors mesh into one delicious amalgam of roast and vibrance.
M-Despite the rather low ABV, this ale boasts some great body and creaminess. Tantalizing carbonation. Roast-imparted bitterness. Everlasting aftertaste.
O/D-Another gem from NEBCO. Like a non-imperial Founders Breakfast Stout (a tall compliment). All about the coffee beans here. I really think NEBCO is the most underrated brewery in the nation. They are brewer-assassins; any style can be conquered by this group of fine, young gents.

The next step in the evolution of Stout Trooper. New England's finest offering yet. Everything about this excels from beginning to end. A Stout hunters must have. Even the folks with different palates have been shocked by it's coffee goodness when shared...

Always a treat to have a new NebCo beer. Poured into a snifter. Color is jet black with a nice tan head. The nose is slight coffee with also a bit of cocoa (bitter). Love the taste of this one, charred coffee, the aforementioned bitter chocolate and I do believe I am getting a bit of vanilla. I think that sweetness balances this nicely. Mouthfeel is very smooth, carbonation is mild.
One of the better sessionable stouts that I have had. Well done!

On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.
A really solid amount of flavor packed into a basically sessionable beer (I guess 5.2% is a bit over the session line, but my point still stands.)
Pours a deep dark black, with only slight tinges of brown when held up to the light. One inch mocha-colored head, with very little lacing down the glass.
Tastes very nice. Fairly roasty, with tons of coffee flavor. The coffee flavor is nutty, and fairly bittersweet. The roasty bitterness mixes with the coffee bitterness for some complex bitterness, whatever that means. There's a bit of vanilla, and a small amount of chocolate.
Medium bodied, insanely drinkable. Low carbonation, creamy smooth mouthfeel.
A pretty great coffee oatmeal stout. It's nothing insane, just tasty and dependable.
