Single Shot is our rich and beautifully balanced coffee stout made this time with a classic coffee - Sumatra Mandheling! It pours a dense black color the glass unleashing a fluffy, mocha-like head. We experience flavors and aromas of milk chocolate, syrupy coffee, and roasted caramel. Single Shot - Sumatra Mandheling is rich on the palate while maintaining a airiness that leaves you wanting more… Sumatra Mandehling coffee has historically produced some of our favorite Double Shot batches, and this representation is no exception - a true treat in the can helping us bridge the gap between this long cool season and warmer weather.
Single Shot preceded Double Shot in the Monson red garage days and was originally devised to impart authentic and perfectly brewed coffee in a rich, flavorful, and eminently drinkable stout. Batch one was called Percolation, and it was created in advance of our very first Extreme Beer Festival along with Juice Machine. The result was thrilling to us, and tasted wholly unique to Tree House. We credit Single Shot with starting us down a path of big, original stout creations such as All That Is and All That Ever Will Be, Hold On to Sunshine, Double Shot, Good Morning, Triple Shot, Truth, and Impermanence.
Single Shot contains fresh coffee, and we encourage you to keep it cold and drink it as fresh as possible.
