Tree House Double Shot – Columbia El Novado

doubleshotcolumbia.jpg

This double shot variant is brewed with Columbia El Novado coffee. One of the many variants of this epic and classic coffee Tree House Imperial Stout!

Final Rating: 4.5/5
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 16.9oz bottle into a Treehouse tulip glass. Thanks Big Julius for hooking me up with this one!

Pours a deep brown, nearly black body with a pretty substantial light brown head that’s a little fizzy but reduces at a moderate rate, leaving spotty lacing and a layer of retention.

On the nose is freshly roasted coffee, milk chocolate, espresso ,cocoa. Coffee dominates, really nice, I can tell this is going to be pretty roasty and coffee forward.

On the tongue are deliciously balanced coffee notes – like freshly ground coffee was just infused into this beer. Lightly sweet but perfectly balanced. The follow through is rich and silky, giving way to a roasty, dark chocolate note that is characteristic of a great coffee stout. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy body, rich, and easy to drink with medium carbonation.

I always love trying Double Shot variants, and this is no exception. An excellently crafted beer.
