    Beers with Reid - #6 Tree House Double Shot

    https://youtu.be/pabt1GwUq2I
    Style: Imperial Stout
    Container: 16oz can
    Notes: The intent of Double Shot is to pack as much fresh coffee, dark chocolate, and balanced sweet malt character into the beer as humanly possible while maintaining a fluffy drinkability that does not become burdensome to your palate as you drink it. Achieving this level of flavor is easy as you boost alcohol content - the magic of Double Shot is that it’s only 8.2% and carries the flavor of a beer 11% or greater.  (8.2%)

    https://youtu.be/hTu58BAIVhs
    Style: IPA
    Container: 16oz can
    Notes: Julius gone wild (not funky wild, like insane hop saturation wild) For the second special edition of Julius brewed specifically for the third anniversary party, we pushed the level of citrus to the fringes of obscenity through additional kettle and dry hopping with the base Julius hop blend. The result is perhaps the most juicy and delectable creation we have ever made! Preposterous Julius, in the best way imaginable.(6.8%)

    https://youtu.be/Qr7ZFiIgC0M

    When the first container from El Salvador arrived this year, we immediately took about 1,400 lbs of the natural processed Tuxpal and poured it into bourbon and rye barrels we received from FEW Spirits. These "light weights" quickly became intoxicated and took on the character from the barrels, adding a nice fruity, boozy accent to the already juicy blood blend.

    Notes: I Will Not Be Afraid is an immensely enjoyable Tree House Imperial Milk Stout. We taste intense syrupy dark chocolate, caramelized candy sugar, chocolate covered espresso beans, and a hint of cherry cola. This beer is luxurious and silky, like chocolate clouds, yet never relies on an overly saccharine complexion to bring out the intense and complex flavors we have worked so diligently to impart (9.3%)

    Glassware: Stemmed Balloon
    Notes: Velvet Merkin is the beer that almost wasn’t…Indeed, this vintage oatmeal stout’s comical (or is it scandalous?) name went off the grid for several years, but now it’s back due to popular demand. Velvet Merkin is aged for a full year in retired spirits barrels from Heaven Hill, Woodford Reserve and others, yet manages to offer mind-­boggling balance and restraint. You will wig out when you taste Velvet Merkin’s rich milk chocolate, bourbon and espresso flavors, preceded by aromas of vanilla, coconut, toasted oak and mocha. .(7.9%)

    Nerdsense Drinks Reviews - #417 Tree House Single Shot (Vanilla Bean)

    https://youtu.be/Q4v-wT6lHfk

    Style: Milk Stout
    Container: 16oz Can
    Glassware: Tree House 6th Anniversary Teku
    Notes: We are excited to present the first variant of our coffee milk stout: SINGLE SHOT w/ Vanilla Bean! This modification builds upon the original by conditioning the finished beer on Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Beans. We also varied the typical coffee blend by infusing a single beautiful coffee, Guatemala Candelaria! What resulted is a beer that exhibits a subtle and well integrated vanilla note with rich coffee character while retaining a wonderful airiness and drinkability. The crew here tastes bourbon chocolate, brown sugar, and vanilla with a soft coffee acidity on the finish. The vanilla reveals nuanced character as it warms, though never overwhelming the senses, with the coffee notes slowly mellowing. (6.4%)

    Damon (1993-2004) The time spent with loved ones, now lost, seems to affect our mind and body perpetually: memories happen upon us, unsuspectingly, and bring about tears of fond remembrance. Damon was our brother – devout and patient in an age of busyness and distraction. In his honor, we crafted and conditioned this Imperial Stout in bourbon barrels from our favorite distillery. We still reflect, daily, upon our Damon and his scruffy chin of grey – of his loyalty and his love.
