BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tree House Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States

Style: English Sweet / Milk Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.90%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Human Condition is a rich and delicious Tree House stout brewed with coconut, caramel and chocolate. It is designed to capture the spirit and flavor of samoas cookies. It pours a deep black color in the glass releasing aromas of tasted coconut, caramel, milk chocolate and creamy coffee. The flavor follows suit, with a predominant chocolate coconut note fading into a rich caramel candy finish. We are so pleased to our long running philosophy of presenting richly flavorful, thoughtful, and well crafted beers that neither tire or weigh heavy on the palate. This beer works perfectly as a companion to a cold spring evening spent dreaming of warm sandy beaches. In the breadth of the human condition we hope that this beer can offer a moment of joy amidst the endless ups and downs we encounter as we make our way through this fortunate journey called life.

Truly amazing milk stout with taste of coconut, caramel, and chocolate. Pour is deep black and mouthfeel is sweet and all encompassing. One of the best stouts I’ve ever had. Good sweetness.

Pours an onyx black color with a dark tan head that cascades down the side of the glass. Initial aromas are roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and toffee. Wow.

The dark chocolate and roasted coffee flavors are joined by a subtle coconut component, which combines nicely with the other flavors, and fits the substantial mouthfeel.

Truly world-class.

A 16 oz. can dated 8/15/18 into a Tree House teku

Look: A dark black with 1 finger of light brown head. Not much lacing but enough to notice.

Smell: Milk chocolate is the most forward aroma but there is some vanilla and caramel in there. The milk chocolate and vanilla is fantastic. This makes me think of a phenomenal candy or cookies.

Taste: Milk chocolate with vanilla and a coconut kicker. A little more caramel than the smell led me to believe. This is a fantastic milk stout.

Feel: Very little carbonation and a nice lingering aftertaste.

Overall: A world class milk stout. Such a great combination of flavors and no taste of alcohol. Scary drinkable

this may be better than Wormtowns Norm in the coconut stout category.

Had on tap. Pours opaque, black in color with one third inch head. Taste is roasted coffee, dark chocolate, dry cocoa, and plenty of coconut, especially on the aftertaste. Slightly bitter, roasty, medium heavy bodied with low carbonation. Not as sweet as Southern Tier Samoa, but nice and coconut forward. Great cooler weather beer. Would get this again.
