I Will Not Be AfraidI Will Not Be Afraid
Notes: We are excited to welcome a new member of the Tree House Imperial Milk Stout Family - I Will Not Be Afraid! Brewed with an assortment of chocolate, roasted, and pale malts and carefully dosed with cacao and coffee, I Will Not Be Afraid is an immensely enjoyable Tree House Imperial Milk Stout. We taste intense syrupy dark chocolate, caramelized candy sugar, chocolate covered espresso beans, and a hint of cherry cola. This beer is luxurious and silky, like chocolate clouds, yet never relies on an overly saccharine complexion to bring out the intense and complex flavors we have worked so diligently to impart. We welcome you to enjoy it by the fireplace as we head into the cooler New England seasons.

Pours deep black. Aroma is quite sweet combination of caramel, milk chocolate, a little coffee, and a decent amount of vanilla. Taste doesn't measure up to aroma. Would have like a bit fuller mouthfeel.

Poured into a 20 oz goblet canned on 1/19/22. Pours a very dark near pitch black with a tiny mocha head that settles rather quickly, leaving little to no lace. 4

Aroma is deep dark chocolate, coffee grounds, vanilla bean, toffee, and actually a little alcohol is present for sure. 4.25

Taste follows dark chocolate, roasty coffee, vanilla, toffee, and a little alcohol in the lingering finish. 4.25

Mouthfeel bigger than average, soft carbonation, a little dry, and at 9.3% it drinks bigger. 4

Overall this one would be better if it had more body in my opinion, but still a very solid Imperial Stout. 4

Canned 1/19/22. “He who has overcome his fears will truly be free” stamped on the bottom of the can

Man, I can’t remember the last new Stout I had from Tree House. They tend to excel at these Milk Stouts, so I have high hopes for this one. Plus this is one of the last few TH beers in the BA top 250 I’ve yet to rate, so I’m excited to finish up that list

Pours nearly pitch black with a finger of mocha head that fades to a thin cap and leaves minimal lacing

This is certainly sweet in aroma, but it’s not overbearing. I’m picking up on aromas of milk chocolate, medium roast coffee, chewy caramel, sweet vanilla, light cinnamon, and a touch of char

There’s actually a pretty good sense of balance here in taste, I wasn’t expecting a dry finish. On the front end of the sip I’m tasting milk chocolate, chewy caramel, raisin, creamy coffee, brown sugar, light cherry, and cocoa powder. The swallow brings notes of cocoa powder, dark cherry, medium roast coffee, brown sugar, light caramel, and roasted malt

A full body pairs with gentle tingling carbonation, resulting in a thick and creamy beer. Dries out over the duration of the swallow, leaving just the slightest stickiness

Damn, this is really good. Nothing overpowering but still full flavored. Hopefully they put this one out more often

Picked-up two cans at Tree House in Sandwich for $8.55 each. My two hundred and thirtieth brew from these guys. Canned on date of 1/19. Very good, a bit pricey.
