COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The waning days of summer have us thinking about more comforting beers, and Brendan’s latest effort on the 5 BBL fits the bill perfectly! Hustle pours a dark mocha color in the glass with a deep brown head, emitting rich aromas of chocolate, brown sugar, and even a hint of smoke... The bold flavor evolves beautifully in the glass buoyed by a lush mouthfeel - we taste fudgy chocolate, cocoa powder and robust roasted malts balanced properly by an assortment of sweet dark fruits. We imagine this one to be the perfect accompaniment to a late night by the fire with friends.

Black body, medium to thin tan head, spotty lacing. Light roast, milk chocolate, and earthy notes in the back end. Easy drinking, with a semi-dry, medium-weight body. Finishes clean.

16 oz. can. Black body with a nice off-white head. Smells of milk chocolate and vanilla. Tastes of milk chocolate with an aggressive roasty and bitter finish. Well carbonated. Medium body. Solid porter.

Dark black. So good. Thick rich mild coffee. Very robust. Fudge is a great description if coffee was added to fudge. I need more Tree House! A little vanilla or maple and this may be my perfect beer.

Can care of Lee, thanks brah. Pours purple brown with a medium head. Notes of roasted malt, brown sugar, dark chocolate, plum, espresso, oats, and other dark fruit. Cinnamon hazelnut flavors as she warms. Medium bodied. Really nice and easy going porter from Tree House.

tapefuzz (927) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 21, 2016
16oz can. Pours nearly black with a small, quickly-dissipating tan head. Aroma is chocolate, roast malt, caramel, some coffee, and just a hint of dark fruit. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, licorice, dark fruit, slight molasses, and dark-roast coffee. Roasty, bitter finish. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Sticky and smooth mouthfeel.

Big can in a tulip. Pours near black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some chocolate, a decent amount of smokiness, hints of dark fruits, light dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A solid beer with a nice level of the smoked malts.

[ bottle ][ 1oz ][ @Tasting ][ $ ? ][ snifter ][ 12.06.15 ]
sepia with thin coffee ring, still top. Way in-your-face nose, heavy roast and anise, light oat. Reminiscent of mikkeller black tie. Husky front palate, tons of oatmeal and plenty of anise, light contrast mid palate with rawer sugar, finish stings lightly with underattenuation. Mod body overall but an incredibly long finish, light heat but overall nice. The roast elements (the only element) remind of Expedition.

nimbleprop (8928) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 7, 2015
750ml growler pours a murky black with some cloudy, brown head. Good, roasty nose, molasses, toast, dark chocolate, some yeast, earthy. Flavor is good, chocolate and malt, chocolate covered berry, molasses, licorice, toast. Full bodied but dry. Robust. Nice.
