Style: American Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
2014 saw the creation and evolution of one of our proudest accomplishments here at Tree House: Double Shot. Over the year we often wondered how far we could push the coffee and still maintain a balanced and delightful beer. In the spirit of maintaining the integrity and refinement of the original Double Shot, we created a new base beer to withstand precisely double the coffee addition Double Shot receives to satisfy our curiosity. The result is something quite surprising and completely original! More milk chocolate than coffee, and more brown sugar than molasses, Triple Shot conveys a super unique flavor profile that explodes with complexity as it warms. The crew here tastes “straight chocolate syrup”, ”chocolate covered raspberries”, “sweet espresso”, and “chocolate Charleston Chew (seriously)”. A truly rich treat that begs to be shared - we’re psyched to shared it with YOU!

Big thanks to rudzud for picking this up, I think. Just got through hell trying to add water filter system to the house, trying to hook it up to the house water line was hell, so need this

Pours an inky black color thick heavy long legs too, a dark fizzy head fades semi quickly, but beads back up when I swirl

Nose big dark roast, roasted malts, roasted coffee, not super fresh coffee but some roasted espresso like toasted nutty coffee, a little licorice, some very dark chocolate cocoa , fudge brownie, etc

Taste big creamy lactose like milk chocolate into big roasty coffee, fresh coffee grinds and espresso, fruity coffee with a little nutty, more fudge brownie and dark chocolate, cocoa, etc, roasted malts bring a little char and hint of licorice again, just a touch of alcohol on the back end with the drier finish, lingering thick fudge and coffee candy

Mouth is full bod, thick lush, a little creamy, nice carb and almost no alcohol

Overall nice, coffee was good but less than I expected probably from the age, but still a great beer, no date in the bottle

500ml bottle, snifter glass. Dark black body, half finger mocha head, fair retention, no lacing. Smell and flavour is a massive and delicious espresso and a bit of roast bean, smooooooooooth milk chocolate, a bit of fudge, lactose, a bit of tobacco and roast malt. Comes out to something like a massive espresso shake, sort of like a frappe. Full bodied, silky and smooth, creamy and full-flavoured. Delicious!

One of the best mouthfeel stouts I've ever had, unfortunately I'm not a big fan of the yeast character of Tree House stouts but this was my favorite of the ones I've tried.

Sampling a cold bottle poured into my snifter. Beer is a dark chocolate brown on the pour with a creamy tan head of about 1 cm. The foam sticks around as a wispy surface layer for most of the sampling. The aroma is dark chocolate and toffee with some brown sugar. I also get a little bit of coffee ground and a background of vanilla. I dont really get any hops nor booze on this beer.
The first sip reveals a silky smooth body with mild and gentle carbonation that rolls across my palate.
Flavor is sweet chocolate and some brown sugar. I also get roasted malt and coffee grounds mixing with a bit of molasses. This flavor then rolls back to chocolate, more of a dark chocolate brownie note here.
I dont get any booze and hops are absent. The beer is a very drinkable stout and Im glad I got to try it.
Pick one up next time TH is offering several stout beers.

03/2015 - This beer is absolutely incredible - seek it out! Intense espresso, vanilla, toffee, lactose on the nose; superb coffee, rich chocolate, maple, vanilla on the palate; solid mouthfeel but it thins out of the finish; rich, chocolaty finish.

beautiful looking brew, quite aromatic and delicious flavors on palate. there is a robust and deep chocolate quality - getting milky chocolate bar, bakers chocolate, oreos, chocolate chip cookie, caramel, robust and slightly bitter coffee notes, a mellow dark fruit flavor and a massive roastyness. smooth medium bodied mouthfeel.
