Moment Of ClarityMoment Of Clarity
Notes: Moment of Clarity is an American Milk Stout carefully brewed and conditioned with coffee, chocolate, and dark amber maple syrup. It pours beautifully in the glass with a rich, mousse-like head and dense complexion. It exhibits strong maple and chocolate aromas on the nose and recalls chocolate covered maple cream candies in the flavor. Though dense and flavor filled, it still maintains a certain fluffiness that makes it easy and pleasant to drink a big glass of. It is a wonderful and decadent treat that, for us, evokes a yearning for relaxed Sunday mornings with a pile of chocolate chip pancakes.

From a 16oz can dated 11/11/22 into a tulip. Can message: "Yes! Yes! Yes!"

Pours a thick opaque black with about one finger of brown head. Incredible retention, ok lacing.

Powerful aromas of hazelnut coffee, chocolate, dark chocolate and maple syrup.

Taste follows in reverse. Chocolate and maple up front with coffee in the background. Light roasty bitterness.

Thick, full-bodied, wet mouthfeel. Light bitter aftertaste. Smooth drinking. Low carbonation.

Don't sleep on Tree House's stouts! This is fabulous.

16 oz can poured into a willi becher glass. Pours an opaque near-black with a large beige head. Aroma and flavor feature sweet maple syrup, milk chocolate, dark roasted malts, and coffee. It's a decadent stout and for me is just a touch too sweet. Or maybe I'm not quite in the mood. It's delicious, regardless. Smooth, velvety, full mouthfeel. Overall a great beer.

16 oz can from the brewery, canned 9/16/22

pours jet black, with half inch think dark tan colored head that fades into a thin ring around the collar. mildly roasty coffee aroma with milk chocolate. taste is similar, fairly sweet. fuller bodied, slick feel. Overall very good but I think a bit stronger coffee flavors would help balance the sweetness.

Canned 2022, no further dating available.

This is lovely. Balanced, approachable, and extremely easy to drink. The sweet stout base shine through in all its chocolate milky glory. The extra additions play minor supporting roles only, with the coffee being the least noticeable unfortunately.

Appearance - The beer poured a silky black with a bubbly tan head.

Smell - The maple really came through in the nose. Chocolate notes were also present.

Taste - The initial profile was dominated by chocolate and maple. There was a coffee presence. The finish had vanilla, but was mostly chocolate.

Mouthfeel - The milky nature of the stout made it quite nice.

Overall - I have had better milk stouts.

This one pours like thick motor oil and yields a beautiful two-finger mocha head that hangs out for a while.

The nose is of dark roast coffee, roasted malt and a touch of mapley sweetness. I can’t wait to dive in.

The feel is thick and chewy, and the taste follows the nose; robust coffee notes with a touch of sweet maple. Fantastic stout with huge flavor. And loving that it’s only 7.7%. (The fact that I used the word “only” goes to show how out of control ABVs have gotten!)

One drawback as I get deeper into the glass is that the bitter burnt coffee notes that I found pleasant at the beginning turn into a laborious astringency that makes me take the taste points down a notch.

If I could have a can of this in my fridge at all times, I would. Just a great non BA maple stout - perfection for what it is.
