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.

Had last night at Cask Republic on tap, poured into a nonic pint glass. The beer pours out a super dark brown with a light brown head that leaves some spotty lacing. The head has great retention and takes awhile to die down.

Smell is a big roasted malt note with a little sweetness, strong coffee and espresso notes underlying. This beer has an awesome flavor, big malt notes upfront with a bit of sweet fruit. Next is just a wave of coffee, subtle sweetness throughout here. Finishes with some cocoa and a hint of char, but not much at all.

The body is superb, medium body in the stomach and silky mouthfeel. Overall this is one of the better coffee beers I've had in some time. New England really kicked ass with this one.

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!
