There’s a “Dark Lord” Joke in Here Somewhere

Imperial Stout LabelThe New England Brewing Company recently reported to Beernews.org that it’s about to ship its Imperial Stout Trooper stout in 750-ml bottles. Shipments will go to CT, MA, RI, NY, and FL, and will be available some time around 12/21.

The beer has actually been available seasonally since 2006, although in a 2007 interview the brewmaster admitted that they figured it would be a one-shot deal because they expected a cease-and-desist order from LucasFilms.

News of the new shipment has inspired a cri de coeur from Topless Robot:

I’ll be checking my local liquor stores, but seriously, Topless Roboteers, please, please, please — if any of you know how I can get a hold of this beer as soon as humanly possible, YOU EMAIL ME. YOU EMAIL ME IMMEDIATELY, GODDAMMIT.

So help the poor guy out if you can.
