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!
