Imperial Stout Trooper
New England Brewery
ABV – ?
Appearance – Dark, very dark, like the very depths of the darkest depths of space. Dark mocha colored head.
Smell – Sweet, almost chocolatey,
Taste – Dark chocolates at first, the middle has an alcohol bite and the end is some very nice roasted grains.
Mouthfeel – Creamy, like a milk stout.
Drinkability – Yeah, I could dig drinking these on a cold night. All night. Forever.
Closing Notes – First off, this is a Star Wars beer, try it solely based on that. Then appreciate the delicious flavors that come with it. Quality beer and I was super pumped to be able to get it.
Overall – 4.0
Review By D.P.
Appearance – Deep, dark, dense liquid with a chocolately foamy head…like wookie fur.
Smell – Awesome sweet aroma like chocolate liqueur. Reminiscent of Darth Vader’s breakfast slurry. Yum!
Taste – Chocolate, coffee, grains, as complex as Obi-Wan-Kenobi’s fighting skills.
Mouthfeel – Silky smooth, like Princess Leia’s tunic.
Drinkability – Yes, search the galaxy for this brew.
Notes – If the Ewoks ate yabba-yabba leaves exclusively and drank naught but the fermented syrup of the chocco-plinko vines, and this caused them to poop out yummy little candy-bars……..ummmm never mind.
My call – 3.5
Sixpoint Craft Ales
ABV – 6.3%
Appearance – Dark Mahogany.
Smell – Hops through and through.
Taste – Hops at first then we get some roasted grains in the middle with a lingering sticky piney flavor.
Mouthfeel – Sticky.
Drinkability – It is drinkable. Not my favorite though.
Closing Notes – I have heard a lot about this brewery, and most of it good, but for me this beer just wasn’t pleasing to most of my palate. I would try their other beers though.
Overall – 2.0
Hell or High Watermelon
ABV – 4.9
Appearance – Slightly hazy very yellow.
Smell – Smell yeasty.
Taste – This taste like creamy watermelon. That is it all the way trough.
Mouthfeel – Creamy.
Drinkability – It goes down easy.
Closing Notes – If you like watermelon, I would say try this. I would drink it again because it is vastly different from most beers. It isn’t unpleasant, just kind of hard to adjust to. It is certainly unique.
Overall – 3.0
