Robinsons Brewery Trooper: Fear of the Dark – English Stout at 4.5% ABV (C$4.48 at Econo Liquor Okotoks, 330 ml, best before 31-Aug-2022, acquired 12-Nov-2023, reviewed 12-Nov-2023)
Appearance: clear dark cola red with one fat finger of loose beige head diminishing gradually to a thin cap and ring, moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: mild, roady malts, chocolate. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, medium duration slightly ashy finish. (3/5)
Nothing much to fear here: mild aroma and flavour on a light-tending body. I think I slightly prefer their Red ’n’ Black Porter, but maybe that’s only because that one has a higher ABV. (14/20)
This will be my 5,678th unique Untappd check-in.
