Treehouse Brewing, Abstraction Vanilla & Abstraction Coffee

Treehouse Abstraction Coffee
Beer #: 1,146
Tasting: December 20, 2018
Style: Imperial Porter
ABV: 8.8%

Has a bit of an acrid flavor quality that cuts through flavors like a knife. Most likely the coffee bitterness and the alcohol ethers working in conjunction. A bit distracting as it mutes everything else down a few pegs. On the plus side, it has cocoa and nutty undertones but conversely I would like some more of a creamy mouthfeel with more mocha quality but it just wasn’t there. Still nice but only 90 points from me.

Treehouse Abstraction Vanilla
Beer #: 1,147
Tasting: December 28, 2018
Style: Imperial Porter
ABV: 8.8%

This is the clear winner when comparing these two imperial porters. Much smoother with just enough vanilla to make it push it to decadent. Not sure why this one presents more creamy than the coffee version, but it does. Like its counterpart, some nutty and cocoa flavors. I’ll push Treehouse Abstraction Vanilla a couple ticks ahead of its coffee counterpart. 92 points.

Thanks Mark for picking these up…glad you made it.
