TREE HOUSE SINGLE SHOT COFFEE STOUT 2/1/19

Poured from the 16 oz. can into a Samuel Smith English tulip.

a; Opaque black with a two inch thick tan head which receded to thin surface foam and spotty & patchy lacing.

s; Roasty malt leaning into black coffee.

t; Black coffee and ash with a moderate hop bite on a sweet-bitter finish.

m; Medium to full, excellent body and some carbonation tingle.

o; A superlative coffee milk stout, at least the equal of Founders famous highly-regarded Breakfast Stout. Loads of black coffee/roasty malt flavor smoothed out to a fine drinkability.

Pours an opaque near black with a nice tan head. Huge roasted coffee aroma and flavor with vanilla and milk chocolate. An incredibly flavorful beer at just 6.4% abv.

Appearance: So dark it was hard to see where the bubble show ended and the liquid began; the two finger head is a medium brown color; good retention, leggy and splashy

Smell: Coffee milk aromatics

Taste: Milk chocolate and coffee with rich elements of both; nothing complex, just both of those elements with the flavors building and building into the finish

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation; thick like a shake

Overall: With powerful flavors, this milk stout avoids the trap of venturing into pastry territory - first class effort

Thanks, PhineasMcClintock, for the opportunity

L - 1-finger mocha head quickly desolves, leaving behind a deep dark brown body.

S - tons of coffee and chocolate.

T - follows the nose. Smooth coffee and dark chocolate. Low bitterness. Low sweetness. No booziness.

F - medium body and carb.

O - a near-perfect milk stout.

Poured into a 16 oz Flying Dog steamed tulip glass canned on 5/29/18. Pours a very impressive viscous near pitch black with a 2 plus finger sticky mocha head, that leaves big thick streaks of lace behind.

Smell very one dimensional but impressive just the same dry coffee beans, vanilla, and cocoa nibs yum. 4.25

Taste follows coffee, vanilla, and bakers chocolate yup, just really tasty.

Mouthfeel is bigger than average but has a creaminess, moderate carbonation, maybe a touch dry, and goes down easy but has a lot more flavor than a stout with only 6.4% ABV.

Overall Treehouse is not a one trick pony, this stout like most of the IPAs they produce is awesome.

Pours opaque, dark brown in color with one inch head. Taste is maple, cane sugar, and roasted coffee. Medium bodied, medium low carbonation, and sweet. Makes for an excellent coffee stout, good coffee flavor that is combined with excellent milk stout sweetness. Excellent beer.

Motor oil look. Dark but not to impressive. Nice chocolate flavor with some hazelnut. Love the taste but surprised if no like how thin it feels. Not sure yet. Only halfway through the pint. Very nice either way.
