Notes: Brewed with Monson’s own Maxwell Road Maple Grade A Dark Amber Maple syrup, Good Morning pours pitch black in the glass with a creamy mousse-like head. The bubbles give way to aromas of rich milk chocolate, cocoa powder, and dark amber maple syrup. The flavor starts as a blast of milk chocolate, sweet maple syrup, and rich fresh coffee as deeper complexities are uncovered as it warms. The crew here at Tree House tastes “chocolate covered maple candy”, “vanilla”, “chocolate cake”, “brown sugar”, and “fresh roasted coffee”. A super decadent treat, Good Morning begs to be shared and contemplated!

November 2015 growler. First owner, fridge stored. Maple is all gone, a lot of coffee still there. Very tasty. A lot thinner then mornin delight. Def want to revisit when fresh.

Wow, everything I wanted from this; coffee, maple, vanilla aromas; maple syrup, bitter coffee, strong dark cacao; bitter ye yet sweet body lingers, sweet, creamy finish.

I tried this beer before I knew what it was and I'm glad I did. It's nowhere near as good as hype suggests. It's a nice rich maple and coffee stout but there are others out there that can be had for far less effort and cost.

A few ounces from a plastic cup at a local beer festival. I'm not sure that's fair to review, but it was happily consumed. Delicious but certainly not groundshaking. Kind of sweet and flat. Tasted like mocha syrup.

small pour at a beer festival, which after tasting I wish I hadn't because it was so good, and such a small sample: wanted gallons of it. Smell is maple chocolate and coffee. Mouth feel is velvet, soft and sticky, low carbonation. Taste is perfect: burnt espresso, chocolate, hints of maple and maltiness. Maddeningly good.

Drank from grower on 9/11. Maple had dissipated but the coffee was strong and the carbonation remained solid. Worth the hype it with the maple absent it was still a very solid brew and hopefully I can have it again.

Easily one of the best beers I've ever had. Really opened my eyes up as to what one of the best beers in the world would taste and the quality of it.

Black body with a mocha head pours like motor oil. The smells are the best part of this as it really does smell like chocolate chip pancakes with syrup. Brings me back as to when I was a kid. The taste is chocolate, coffee, and maple syrup and the feel is a thick, mouth coating whole milk type. Overall is this the best beer I've ever had? Really depends on the mood I'm in but between this and other TH offerings like Very Hazy, KingJJJ, etc., I honestly can't decide.

If you are lucky enough to trade, buy, find this FRESH ... do so at any cost.

Enjoyed at a share. Pours a deep rich black color, half finger of frothy brown head. Smell is roast coffee. Taste follows the nose, delicious. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy, smooth, not as much there as I anticipated given the appearance. Overall one of the best stouts I've ever had.

One of the best beers you will ever experience. This beer is only produced twice a year (on average), and each customer is limited to only one 750 ml bottle per pass through the growler line. But it is worth it!

From a share a while back shortly after its 2nd release. Prob the best stout I've had to date. Lots of sweet syrup on the nose and pallet. Good fresh coffee presence and notes of vanilla and cocoa. Great mouthfeel and overall just a killer stout.

Incredible stout... I was lucky enough to be part of a few shares now where we have opened a few of these growlers and wow.. The hype is real on this super well rounded and balanced maple stout. Great coffee on the nose and a head that looked like cake batter

Growler shared in London - picked up in a trade. Pours oily black with a frothy brown head. Huge coffee nose with accents of maple syrup, hearty roast, cocoa. Big and sweet, with maple syrup-laced coffee, dark chocolate, espresso, mellow earthy bitterness, vanilla, creamy coffee ice cream. Full bodied, chewy, with fine to average carbonation. Warming finish with loads of milk chocolate, oily maple syrup, of really brewed coffee, burnt sugars, scorched earth. This stuff is full on. Nice blend of chocolate, coffee and maple syrup. Definitely sweet, but really delicious overall. Outstanding.

as a person that had many of the best coffees beers, this is just weak compared to morning delight of KBS, really good, dont get me wrong, but weak, Im talking about the stout part, what makes it a beer. The coffee, is a secondary score, that while strong, it dont mask the fact its not a amazing stout.

Superb maple coffee stout. That TH creamy mouthfeel with perfect balance of sweet maple, bitter coffee, and roast. On-point carbonation and head. Kept me awake a while from the caffeine buzz, be sure to drink early.

Probably the best stout I have ever had. I've had this great beer four different times and it is delicious every time. It is very smooth with such a perfect after taste. Highly recommend this.

Pours a pitch black color, with a thin bubbly, light brown colored head. The initial pour consisted of a lot of green peppers aromas. After letting it sit and breathe for a few minutes, the green pepper lessened and more dark roasted coffee and and nice maple syrup aroma started to come out, as well as a decent chocolate malt background. The flavor didn’t have any green pepper to speak of, but was definitely maple forward, which followed through into some nice mocha notes. A really nice fresh roasted coffee bean flavor and a fudgey finish. The body was a tad thin, though it had a creamy consistency to give the beer a “coffee with creamer’ impression. Overall, a great beer with a couple minor flaws. Coffee Stouts (with/without maple syrup) in general are some of my favorite beers. Would I put this one ahead of some of my favorites? Definitely not, but I could certainly see putting it in my top 10 of beers of this style, and I wouldn’t hesitate to drink it again.

One of my favorite beers. Definitely my favorite stout. Very well-rounded. Great look, smell, taste, mouth feel... I have only good things to say about it. I had heard a lot of hype before I tried it, and I was not disappointed.

had a 3oz tasting from a growler
looked like a stout but smelled like a maple BOMB!
The smell pretty much came through on the palate and it finished strong like a nice amber maple slathered
stack of flapjacks!

Here it goes. Filled in November, consumed nye. This lives up to the hype. Pours out a nice black color. Smells like I just walked in to caribou coffee with some maple sweetness and chocolate. Tastes like a Maple covered coffee bean. Yum. What a great way to kick off 2016.

Poured into a Treehouse Teku Glass - Thanks Leo!

A - Jet black in the glass with a thick, fingers worth of khaki head. Looks awesome in the glass.

N - Intense coffee, chocolate, fudge, sweet maple syrup. Fresh coffee grounds, jamocha almond fudge ice cream.

T - massive maple syrup (which isnt crazy on the nose), coffee, rich, dark chocolate, roasted malts. Its breakfast in a glass. Medium full mouthfeel, thick, mouth coating. Coffee bitterness sits on your tongue, finishes with an awesome maple syrup sweetness.

O - this is about as good as non BA stouts gets. Is it the best beer in the world? Who knows? If you're lucky enough to experience this, you can make that call :)

Had a growler of this, about 2 days after picking it up. Tough to wait that long, but I shared it with a friend so that makes it worth it, right? Poured it into my Treehouse Tulip, which unlocks a new flavor profile.

A - Pours a really nice dark brown with the a nice sized mocha head. It's so beautiful I could put a picture of it at my desk.

S - The first smell I noticed was a strong maple spell at the beginning, followed by a light chocolate smell. I didn't get it at first, but after a few drinks a light coffee smell became more evident. It gives a pleasant balance that adequately represents the complexity of the drink.

T - Maple Syrup comes out pretty strong, but it a good way and it was very sweet. The chocolate was rich, but not overpowering. Personally I would have loved a bit more of a coffee taste to it, but that is mostly my own preference. GM was very balanced, no one flavor was over powering, it was sweet but not too sweet. Rich, but not too rich. They hit a lot of the right buttons without going too far in any one of them.

M- Has a nice mouthfeel to it, very thick and creamy without being so exhausting. It was enjoyable to drink the entire way through. This is a wonderful morning beer, and went well with brinner.

O - Overall, this is my favorite beer out of Treehouse that I have had. I look forward to the chance to try this again and share it with more of my friends. Or to see what tweaks they may make next time around.

Best coffee stout I've ever had, hands down. As soon as the growler was popped it smelled like having a an amazing bag of freshly roasted beans in the room. The taste absolutely lived up to how glorious the nose was on this brew. Truly a masterpiece. I think I shed a tear when it was over...

This beer will make you think of a cold winter morning in front of a fireplace watching it snow. It is so smooth and refreshing at the same time. I will savor this beer to the last drop.

1500th rating. I have too many reviews/ratings backed up. Had to open this.
Thanks to a guy named Rob who I sell lots of Heady Topper to.

Look: Dark, 1/2 inch mocha head down to a ring in less than a minute. Very little lacing.

Smell: Fruitcake? Coffee, bitter chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg, maple, and mace. Reminiscent of a Christmas cookie my Mom used to make. WTF?!?!? I want to eat the frickin' glass!

Taste: Very nice, I've had better. Bitter chocolate, spice.

Feel: A bit thin. I just had their new Double Shot last night, way better mouthfeel.

Overall: I really miss my Mom's Cookies!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!!

Where do I start with this...750 mL growler from the 11/2015 batch. How can so much flavor be packed into a non-bba stout? Strong coffee, maple nose. Taste is caramel, coffee, maple with an amazingly light fluffy body. If I had to have one beer on a desert island....
