From a 25oz bottle dated 2016 into a pint glass.

Pours pitch black with about two and half fingers of light brown head that forms very slowly as the pour progresses. Great head retention, average lacing.

Smells of coffee, unsweetened chocolate and some dark fruits (cherries, raspberries?).

Tastes of sweet coffee, some bitter dark chocolate with above mentioned fruits in the background. Alcohol not noticeable at 8.7 abv.

Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Nice bitter aftertaste. No noticeable carbonation.

Overall, the bottle says "Do Not Age" but this tastes excellent. Would love to have a fresh to compare.

Another very solid version of double shot by a tree houseā€¦ Like the deep coffee notes on this one but I don't feel like most of the variance that they make are that different from each other with the exception of triple shot.

Despite the hype, it beat it. Pitch black, thick color with a tan head & tons of lacing. The nose is a beautiful roasty coffee. The taste is a ridiculously creamy, thick full stout with a chocolatey coffee backbone. The feel is perfect, almost tasted nitro'd & barrel aged despite it being neither. Super thick yet super smooth. This beer was fantastic.

DS with Costa Rica Montes de Oro drank on 1/7/2017

This is really an incredible beer. I've had another version of this and it's amazing how they change up the coffee to keep a fresh variety of this brew coming off the line. Definitely one of the best coffee stouts I've had. Showcases the stout and the coffee bean to perfection. The brew adds a little roastiness, hint of vanilla, and earthy tones which combines for a grand slam.

Poured into a snifter. Pour a nice thick tan head. Chocolate and coffee presence is outstanding. Could drink this instead of a morning coffee. Great mouth feel and overall smooth.

Dark black color with a dark brown head... fantastic creamy coffee thickness. Dark rich chocolate, vanilla bean, and nutmeg. The best of the double shot beers that I have had.

Thick dark black beer poured into a snifter. Has a tan head that is very thin. Coffee smell and chocolate goodness on the smell. Wonderful roasty coffee ratio to the malt but not overpowering. Nice smooth mouthfeel.

Poured this into a snifter. Dark thick black color with a minimal thin tan head. Smells roastyv chocolate coffee notes. Nice creamy thick mothfeel and very coffee forward. But the creaminess of the beer really balances the coffee bitterness and finishes smooth

I rarely give 5's across the board but if this isn't I don't know what is. I had this side by side with the TH DS Guatemala Bella vista, and it was close, and the Guatemala rocks, but this one takes it. Darkest, richest, creamiest, chocolaty coffee nose and taste non BA coffee Stout I've ever had. Creamy tasty dark brown head. Velvet silky smoooooth!
