BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tree House Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States | website

Style: American Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.60%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our rich, decadent coffee stout. This one's soft cocoa flavors open up to reveal a richly complex treat. We taste flavors of chocolate cake, "coffee candy", milk chocolate, with heaps of vanilla. A pungent & distinct coffee stout for sure! A rich, sweet, and less roasty base beer contributes the ideal backdrop to this bold and vibrant treat for the coffee and beer lover alike!

The only reason why this doesn't get a perfect 5 is because Good Morning exists and this beer can somehow be improved upon. The smell is out of this world, only can really compare it to a fresh 2013 BCBCS (without the bourbon). This is what a big coffee stout should smell like. incredible smooth taste with balanced sweetness and bitterness. Coffee flavor is still there. Love this beer and lucky enough to live in MA.

Wow. Just....wow.

This one pours a black, thick liquid into my tulip glass and leaves a one-finger graham cracker head.

The aroma is mind-blowing. Coffee, cocoa, caramel, and vanilla are all fighting in the glass trying to gain the upper hand. On this pour, the coffee reigns supreme but it was a bloodbath.

The taste is like a beer cappuccino. Coffee dominates the first sip, with the strong chocolate flavor breaking through like the Kool-Aid man through a brick wall. Not detecting too much caramel or vanilla on the taste but the coffee and chocolate have all but decimated my palate.

The mouthfeel is extremely smooth. It drinks like an Imperial stout, but surprises with only a 7.6 ABV. The alcohol is very well hidden.

Overall this is unquestionably one of my favorite stouts. There's not a whole lot going on but what IS going on is absolutely amazing. This is how a coffee stout should be done.

Poured from a 750mL growler into a Tree House tulip glass. Purchased at the brewery a few days ago.

Pours a deep black, inky body with a 2 finger mocha colored head that reduces within a few minutes, leaving a thin layer of foam. Little lacing.

Aromas in the first 30 minutes are subtle and muted, but once it warms up they start to come out with rich deep roasted coffee, anise, black liquorice, dark fruit, dark chocolate.

Taste is bold and rich - heavy roasted coffee upfront, espresso, followed by dark cocoa, roasty, toasty malt, char, coffee beans, finish is slightly bitter and you guessed it - roasty. Mouthfeel thickens as it warms, becoming rich and full. Low carbonation.

Overall a solid stout - a massive coffee bomb. Seek it out if you're into coffee stouts.

A-EBF sample pour. An inky, black color. Very dark, like espresso.

S-Well it both looks and smells like espresso. All about the coffee. One of the most genuine coffee aromas I have come across. This could easily pass for a strong, black coffee in terms of aroma.

T-So much espresso, so much genuine coffee, so much roastiness. Double Shot is a very accurate name. Sweet and bitter dark chocolate and even a bit of nuttiness.

M-Medium bodied and very drinkable. Tiny bubbles. Bitter finish. No booze whatsoever.

O/D-I really loved this beer. A coffee clone. A coffee-beer-lover's wet dream. This one one of the gems at EBF.

Edit: Had a sample at the source and it cemented how delectable this beer is.

Once you've has Good Morning it's hard to try another. But I will say I had this with breakfast (I know crazy) and it was my coffee while on vacation. Do not change a thing.
