Style: Milk / Sweet Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.90%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

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.

Thick khaki colored head that dissipates rather quickly. Smell/Taste of coffee, chocolate, caramel and coconut. Coconut becomes more prominent as it warms up. Being a milk stout, the lactose flavor is also there.

Poured on draft at the brewery.

Pours a near pitch black color with a finger if creamy tan head. The head dissipates quickly, leaving a few spots of lacing before settling into a ring around the top of the beer.

The aroma is full of coconut, sweet milk chocolate, brown sugar, and a touch of caramel. Smells pretty much exactly like a Samoa cookie which is just ridiculous.

The flavor is decadent but just toes the line of cloying-ness. Milk chocolate, fluffy nougat, caramel, and roasted coconut with some milder notes of brown sugar, sweet cream, and vanilla. Incredibly rich. A true delicacy in a glass.

The feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Fluffy, pillowy soft, and exceptionally creamy. Alcohol is non-existent. Smooth with a subtly dry finish.

Overall, this is yet another fantastic milk stout brought forth by Tree House. It's very sweet and decadent, but never quite reaches a cloying level. It's definitely a slow sipper but it's absolutely worth taking your time and enjoying this beer.

On tap at the brewery

L: 1F brown head with very good retention, leaving a cap and ring. Beer is jet black.

S: This is supposed to recall a Samoa girl scout cookie and yup - coconut first, with cocoa, caramel, and roasted malts.

T: Nice and creamy lactose and coconut. Cocoa and roasted malts. Caramel, coffee, and burnt malts. Quite the taste progression.

F: Medium bodied. A bit more carbonation than expected. Good balance and construction, maybe lacking a tiny bit of body. Drinks well, though.

O: It's a winner.
