Style: American Double / 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!

Drank from a 500 ml (1 pt .9 fl. oz) bottle purchased at Tree House Brewing Company, Charlton, MA
Served in a Tree House teku

Dark brown/black appearance. The oily, viscous body was topped by a super tight and frothy, two-finger tall, saddle brown head that fell to a thick, bubbly collar. A patchy wall of lacing coated the glass and lasted until the drink’s end.

The aroma was solid initially but not quite as punchy or complex as I hoped. Big roasted malt presence. Mocha notes were apparent. Sweetened, creamed coffee and milk chocolate came to mind. As the beer sat, the mocha notes really intensified, as did the overall sweetness. I definitely picked up a coffee ice cream-like quality. Touch of vanilla and hint of booziness too.

The flavor profile was similar to the nose but more intense. Really malty and robust. Moderately roasty. Big mocha presence. Like in the nose, sweetened, creamed coffee notes came through strong. Lots of chocolate syrup and brown sugar. More roasted malts on the back end and in the finish. Touch of booze. Hint of char and bitterness as well. With time, the mocha notes intensified. Chocolate fudge was apparent. Good dose of vanilla and a nougat-like quality too. The finish also smoothed out significantly.

Outstanding mouthfeel. Full bodied for the style. Ultra smooth and supple. The liquid contained a super plush, tongue blanketing effervescence that turned amazingly creamy and slick on the palate. The sugars in the beer deposited a slightly sticky film on my lips.

While Triple Shot seemed somewhat underwhelming initially, it transformed into a total mocha bomb as it warmed. I definitely agree with the brewery’s comparison of this beer to a “mocha frappe.” With offerings like this, I can forgive Tree House for not releasing Good Morning in over two years.

2018 release (first time bottled).

A: Pours jet black with a thick ring of medium brown head. Decent retention and no lacing.

S: Dark cold brew coffee, dark powdered high cacao chocolate, light roasted malts.

T: Pretty well balanced dark roast coffee and dark chocolate, very mild roastiness, with a light sweetness to round out the palate. Less sweet than some of their other coffee stouts, like Single Shot, I guess due to the additional coffee.

M: Medium-full body, thick-ish but not quite thick. Medium carbonation.

O: Pretty tasty and very well crafted. Coffee all day, with enough chocolate and sweetness to keep things interesting. Not quite on par with top-tier coffee stouts like Speedway, though.

This beer is insane. It’s definitely similar to Double Shot, but mouthfeel and taste are definitely up a notch. This beer is thick and creamy, like drinking espresso with some cream. Dark Chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Again, like most Double Shot but kicked up.

Pour aggressively to get a nice head. Many flavors, loads of chocolate and coffee taste. Smells real good. A touch too sweet for me though but I think that is the point. It tastes very complex and nothing is too overpowering here.
