World-Class
Notes: This special batch of Double Shot was brewed to celebrate four years of Tree House, and to present a beer that is a culmination of learned efforts during that time. For this batch, we chose to incorporate a bean hand selected by our friends at Carrier Roasting, Burundi Gaharo. The coffees of Burundi present with a dense, earthy, and mysterious character that suits Double Shot perfectly. 4th Anniversary Double Shot is brewed to be more dense than usual, adding to the richness of the beer and accentuating the Gaharo’s best characteristics! We taste and smell earthy chocolate, toffee, brown sugar, and straight up chocolate syrup. A rich and decadent batch, and one begging to be shared and enjoyed slowly! Thank you for four years!

Stouts aren't necessarily my bag - but this is one of the best I've had. No fruit or anything sneaky, just real crisp and a good amount of sweetness, chocolate and coffee. Had this back in late June.

750ml fliptop growler. Served in a stemmed glass. Pours a dark black body, one finger mocha head, good retention, not much lacing. Smells of rich roasted coffee, dark fruit, a bit of cocoa and a good bit of milk chocolate. Roasted malt. Dark chocolate, touch of earth. Flavour is similar, pretty much identical to what it smells like, to be honest. Milk chocolate, roasted coffee, bit of acidic dark fruit, cocoa powder, roast. Mouthfeel is full bodied, creamy, good carbonation and would work great in an ice cream float.

Goodness gracious. I just love every stout I've had from these guys. The feel is so rich, delicate and smooth. Creamy like milk - just the way mother served it up. The coffee/espresso taste is so good too. Very vibrant without coming off bitter like I'd expect. Lovely beer.

Holy goodness, this beer. The color is pretty much pitch black with a tan head that just screams decadence. The coffee scent is so welcoming and perfectly balanced on this beer. Taste is pretty much all I'd ever want with an evening stout... this is a dessert in and of itself. Chocolaty, coffee goodness with a sweet finish and aftertaste that lingers pleasantly until it sadly fades from your palette. No alcohol flavor anywhere. Smoooooth mouth-feel that will make the next sip too easy for the 8%+ ABV beer. I got really sad when both 750mL growlers were kicked. Ah life... to have such highs means lows thereafter.
