Acquired from a trade for glass, saved for the right day; today. Kept in the fridge to preserve integrity. Poured vigorously into snifter for maximum head build.

Look: Well blended, smooth, no particulate, jet black. Nice foam head at first, but medium dissipation, unable to build foam. Caramel/brown color head. Oil tearing.
Smell: lactose, coffee ice cream, fresh rain, steel.
Taste: Steel/Iron, strong coffee on the primary and secondary, sweet caramel, maple syrup, mrs.buttersworth, vanilla, lactose.
Feel: Citruslike, creamy, smooth, incredibly drinkable. No sense of alcohol. Bitter coffee and smoky aftertaste.
Overall: After sitting in the bottle for over a year, I'm amazed at how this beer has held up. Classic doubleshot and treehouse features, this one was worth the fight to get, glad I waited. Coffee notes may have been a little weaker as it aged, but still incredibly enjoyable.

Pours a pitch black color with a dark brown head, slowly fading down to a thicker ring of lacing.

Smells of oily seeweed and soy sauce enriched coffee with a huge impact of spicy molasses and modest earth. Has a layer of rich dark chocolate to it, together with some caramel and dried wild berries.

Has a smooth and soft mouthfeel with a well developed, sparkly carbonation, resulting in a smooth, lighter bodied beer.

Tastes of molasses covered coffee beans from the very beginning with a subtle toffee sweetness balancing a wooden dryness. Has a slick, almost cloying mouthfeel with scorched malts and balancing caramel. Finishes spicy and earthy at the same time with a calming coffee presence, providing more molasses, rock sugar and smoky bakers chocolate.

Well made coffee stout with a complex coffee infusion, establishing a slick, point on, shorter lasting flavor composition.

Sampling a cellar temp bottle poured into my snifter. Picked it up during a visit to the brewery. Ive had in my cellar since purchase, gone contrary to the label requests, sorry. The beer pours jet black with a densely packed fizzy tan head of 3 cm foaming up. THe foams fades to the slimmest of edge layers in a few minutes.
The aroma is roasted malt and coffee notes and dark chocolate. I also get a some brown sugar that sweetens this up, but no booze nor hops showing through on the nose. Definitely a nice imperial stout at this point.
The first sip reveals a silky smooth texture and fine spacious carbonation. The body is medium to slightly thick and each sip does coat my tongue.
Flavor is brown sugar, roasted malt and a lot of coffee and dark chocolate. Again no hops and the booze is very well hidden throughout each sip. This is a very enjoyable double coffee stout, glad I was at TH on the right day for this one.

An absolutely amazing stout. Had the right feel, smell, and taste behind it. Smooth and silky, with a roasty-chocolate taste was out of this world great. Tree House does some great IPA's, but this stout is my favorite from them so far.

Pitch black color and smells of freshly ground coffee. I'm surprised the honey nuances from the coffee actually came through a bit which is fantastic. To me the best things they achieve in this beer is the mouthfeel. It's heavy and viscous but creamy as well. Flavors leave you with exactly what you expect, chocolate, nougat, slight honey and massive amounts of coffee. This really is super well done.
