COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Whats better than one shot of espresso? Two shots of espresso! This riff on Percolation, our coffee stout, is bolstered by nearly 30% more coffee than her younger sister. In addition to Stumptown Finca El Injerto coffee, we added a healthy portion of Sumatra Mandheling. The Fincas flavors of cognac and chocolate meld beautifully with the earthy nuttiness of the Sumatra. A rich, sweet, and less roasty base beer contributes the ideal backdrop to this bold and vibrant treat for the coffee and beer lover alike!

Thanks Kirk for sharing the bottle! Poured into a taster showing pitch black with half a finger of latte colored foam. The nose shows a strong lactose forwardness matched by a strong black coffee background and hints of fig. The palate is light bodied and lightly carbonated for a stout. Despite the nose, there is only a light lactose sweetness and countered with a lot of intense dark roasted coffee character. Coffee character is perfectly restrained and balanced without entering the burnt or toasted territory. Finish is short as there is practically no bitterness given the strong espresso character on the front end. Very well done for the flavors in terms of balance and restraint but could use a bit more character..

18/XI/16 - 500ml bottle @ Sebs Farewell Tasting (Eugenes place) - BB: n/a (2016-1328) Thanks to ElManana+1 for sharing the bottle!

Little hazy dark brown beer, practically no had. Aroma: coffee, coffee and more coffee. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: coffee, alcohol, bit sourish, more coffee, bit sweet, caramel. Aftertaste: little bitter, hoppy and earthy notes, and once again, coffee and more coffee. Well, since coffee aint my thing, neither is this.

"Double Shot 500". Pours black with a nice frothy mocha head. Nose is roasted malts, freshly ground coffee beans, sweet cream. Nice. Ooh, mouth is even better, with a big, creamy collage of fresh coffee, sweet cream (Irish cream?), roasted malts, and something more, like dried berries or other dark fruits. Maybe a touch of raisin and fig. Really good actually. Super creamy mouth feel. One of the more elite Tree House brews.

50cl bottle, courtesy of El Manana + 1 @ Sebletitjes Farewell Tasting. Brune fonce, col fin beige. Arme au nez puissant niveau du caf sans pour cela me faire tomber sous le charme. Retrouve un malt grill, sorte de chocolat-pralin espresso avec touche de caramel. Les effluves sont fortement marquees par le caf. Palais est domin par le caf, malt caramel, grill avec une fine amertume caf - houblon en fin de bouche. La version El Salvador me laisse un meilleur souvenir. Reste solide mais peut devenir bcp pour une seule personne.

Thank you ElManana + Sanne! 500 ml. bottle sampled @ Sebletitjes Farewell Tasting. Didnt know that Tree House bottled. Dark brown going to black, little head. Nose is big mocha, chocolate, huge coffee, good quality big roasted coffee upfront, some sugary sweetness in the back .Taste is bitter roast, great quality roasted coffee dominates pretty much everything, very bitter coffee in a good way, vauge mocha & sugar sweetness in the back. Medium bodied with huge coffee feel. Massive coffee, very nice straightforward coffee beer.

Due to artificial lighting, arbitrary rating for Appearance Expressly coffee - and nothing else... Sweet coffee, getting liqueurish, and not unlike fortified wine. Sweet chocolate..Very thick - voluptuous, good carbonation. Quite good, but the nose is just coffee. Thx to M & L V!
