Notes: Impressionism is an Imperial Stout brewed with chocolate, roasted, and belgian caramel malts. Also, we added small amounts of molasses and maple syrup to lend complexity and depth to this bold-flavored offering. It pours pitch black in the glass and presents with robust imperial stout flavors and aromas of dark chocolate and caramel, with more subtle notes of crème brûlée, molasses, maple syrup, plum, and fig. Impressionism offers tremendous depth and enjoyment across the spectrum as it is allowed to warm in the glass. When kept cold, this beer will evolve and develop in the can for up to six months. It is a perfect, warming beer to cozy up with next to the fire after a big holiday meal. Enjoy!

Glowing polished black marble with a thick tan head settling to a creamy collar and roiling center.

The full round body has a crisp then softening froth that features a malt which begins tangy and almost fruity. This matures quickly into deeper tones of tobacco, smoke, nutty chocolate and cocoa powder. Faint but sweet dark fruit and molasses come out towards the tingly, semi-dry finish. Peanut butter wafer develops as it warms.

An imperial, non-milk, non-flavored stout by Tree House, that doesn't suck? I'll take it!

Pours opaque, dark brown in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is dark and sweet chocolate, dark roast coffee and butterscotch pudding. Heavy bodied, sweet and roasty, with moderate carbonation. Makes for a good sweet stout. Not as many bells and whistles as many of their milk stouts but still a quality beer. Well made but not one I would drive up for.

Look: opaque brown with a medium sized tan head. Nice lacing in the glass.
Aroma: rich maple and molasses with roasted grain, coffee, and chocolate.
Taste: followed the nose. As expected, a great blend of the sweet flavors with the bitter/roasty ones. Complex as billed.
Feel: full bodied and somewhat thick but not too sweet. Silky. Medium carbonation.
Overall: outstanding imperial stout.

First stout from TH

Overall a very solid imperial stout. You wouldn’t even know it was an imperial stout just based on the body and how drinkable it is. Notes of coffee and chocolate on the nose. Don’t really get much of the maple but do taste some caramel. In my opinion, a little more maple would have done this beer wonders. Regardless , it’s a proper imperial stout!

Poured from the impressionist-art-decorated can into a Tree House stemmed tulip.

a; Opaque black with a half inch thick tan head which receded to thin surface foam and patchy lacing.

s: Mild roasty malt leaning to black coffee.

t; Follows the nose along with some sweetness and a moderate hop bite which lingers on the sweet finish.

m: Light medium for the style, good body and carbonation tingle.

o; A very drinkable imperial stout with lighter roasty malt and eventually a maple syrup sweetness.

Dark brown with half finger of mocha head that leaves decent lacing. Big roasted malts and coffee in the nose. Joined by molasses, chocolate and caramel in the taste. Very dark and roasty flavors. On the light side of full bodied with modest carbonation and some slight stickiness. Nice dark goodness.
