BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tree House Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States
treehousebrew.com

Style: Milk / Sweet Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.60%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
A sneakily complex beer, " TWSS" exhibits flavors of milk chocolate, fresh roasted coffee, caramel, and even a hint of smoke. It is absolutely loaded with flavor for a 5.6% beer, and the inclusion of Lactose takes the edge off of the dry, roasted notes found in a typical stout. The adult chocolate milk shake....soft, creamy, and luscious while maintaining supreme drinkability - just the way we like it! A beer that is notorious for converting 'pale' beer lovers to the dark side!

Surprisingly dark mahogany for a 5% beer, with a moderate fluffy, wobbly tan head leaving some minimal lace.

Smell is a blood-like metallic copper with deep roasty malt, very bitter and dusty smelling baker's cocoa and coffee, and a boatload of crushed almonds. Hints of raspberry emerge as it warms.

Taste is less bizarre and quite tasty, with roasty malt, smooth dark chocolate, baker's cocoa, nutty coffee, and hints of pine or wood. It seems it's really sweet AND extremely bitter, all in the same beer.

Smooth, round, with a soft fizz, dry!

Very tasty brew here. Powerful aroma of coffee mostly with a little note of chocolate. Taste is the same, strong coffee hit up front with subtle chocolate on the very back end. Very drinkable and full of flavor. I still think Juicy IPA's are Treehouse's best offerings but this is very solid as well. Cheers
