Triple Shot - Batch 1000Triple Shot - Batch 1000
Notes: To commemorate the 1000th batch brewed in Charlton, a momentous occasion that wouldn’t be possible without the dedicated attention and care of everyone here at Tree House, we decided to brew a batch of Triple shot fit for the occasion! Triple Shot, Batch 1000, is purposefully brewed to be extremely decadent and richly flavored, balancing intense and syrupy coffee notes with a milk chocolate-like base. In conjunction with our friends at Gracenote Coffee, we selected a Colombian coffee known for its dark and mysterious flavor profile. Fleeting notes of dark chocolate, crème brûlée, and maple syrup entice the palate while a chocolatey coffee impression lingers on the palate. What a treat! Triple Shot - Batch 1000 is a celebratory beer, and one that asks to be shared and enjoyed with friends and family during the holiday season.

Pours one shade shy of black with a tight band around the shoulders. Nose expresses sweet notes (perhaps milk sugar), cocoa and coffee. Taste consistent with nose. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a carbonation shy of lively. Overall, a decent offering but not a game changer for me.

L - 1-finger mocha head is slow to recede. Tar-black body.

S - molasses, caramel, coffee, milk chocolate, hazelnut.

L - pours that deep, dark paint brown we all know and love. Used motor oil would be an understatement. Dark, burnt two-tone head fluctuating between a lighter milk tan and darker crimson when agitated.

S - smells like old school Double Shot... and then some. Bright and fruity, lime and citrus. Burnt popcorn, chocolate syrup, and whipped cream.

T - beautiful blend of dark and milk chocolate. Alternates between fluffy chocolate pudding and bittersweet baking chocolate. Burnt, roasted beans with some serious toasty depth. Deceptive, because up front we've got straight chocolate cream viscosity, then the back opens up to acidic coffee grounds mixed with your occasional dark fruit and nutmeg spices. Finish is sweeter than expected, leaving those sugary lip crusties behind.

F - Double Shot can sometimes fall short on the heft I'm looking for in a mouthfeel. Fortunately, we have Triple Shot to deliver all the flavor of DS, but with added body. The creaminess on this beer is unreal. Almost suffocating. Getting a good jaw workout trying to swish this through my teeth.

O - amped up DS for sure. Rich and decadent with high amplitude, bouncing back and forth between cloying and burnt roast. Does the dark Colombian bean justice while delivering a sweet, sticky treat that you'll struggle to put back in one sitting.

Lucky enough to get 3 bottles thanks to friends that don't drink stouts. Tried the first one right away and it was delicious...very smooth. The coffee notes are delicately placed between silky smooth milk chocolate. Absolutely amazing.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Viscous burnt black with a tall stark mocha head that slowly settles to a lumpy bubbly blanket with creamy wisps, a thick collar and a few reaching arms of lace.

Smell is earthy and nutty yet still sharp and acidic coffee with notes of chocolate pie and...whip cream vodka? I guess this is where the ABV shows itself most readily.

Taste is notably acidic but not too much so, as the coffee has a powerful semi-bitter presence that's both nutty liqueur-like and also mocha-esque. It's tangy, tingly and zippy for something so dark, almost cola-like with notes of sassafras, but the body is a silky smooth medium with a hefty carbonation that quickly zips into a softly cotton dry finish.

Compared side by side with OG Triple Shot. Poured vigorously into snifter, minimal head that vanishes quickly. Fresh feel and taste with no off notes. Oreo cookie smell and taste. Very nicely blended, very smooth and enjoyable. Drink this now.

A thicker version of Double Shot. Not worth the price bump or the extra effort required to procure a bottle, given the Tree House Maffia hype machine.

Amazing coffee stout. Best of the best non-Barrel coffee stouts. Big coffee and chocolate, super creamy mouth feel, and beautiful dense marshmallowy (if that’s a word) head that sticks around a long time and leaves a lot of nice lacing.

Picked up at the brewery and shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark black with a one finger mocha head that fades to leave nice legs and sticky lacing.

S - Big aromas of milk chocolate, dark chocolate. Great coffee beans and good roasted notes. Slightly fruity and nutty. Pleasant malts and a slight bitter char.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, super rich milk chocolate, very creamy, the coffee is silky and nicely roasted. Almost vanilla like with nice fruity notes. Really good earthy too. Nice fluffy marshmallow and nougat.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, super creamy and silky. Incredibly luscious.

O - Overall this was a just stellar stout from Tree House. The chocolate and coffee are excellent with a simply spot on mouthfeel. Excellent! Wish this had been more than one per person.
