Review number 300 with a bottle courtesy of Grant. Thanks for all the great beers! Poured this one into a tulip. This one pours a light brown but sits dark and heavy in the glass. Just a small dark tan head for this that withers away quickly. Still, look pretty attractive.
Mellow bourbon comes through right away. Aromas of raisins brown sugar and toffee round it out. Lots of dark malts with a sweet undertone in the aroma. The flavor follows the aroma nicely. Sweet caramel on this with a figgy raisin flavor. Brown sugar and toasted malts round this one out with a complimentery bourbon finish.
This is thick chewy barelywhine. Smooth body with soft carbonation but it's bit sticky. Overall, this is great. I want more. It's a little warm going down but I'm glad to sip on this.

Mother! 2013 vintage, bottled 12/03/13 and enjoyed 02/28/2014. Bottle bought at Full Throttle Seattle for $27.25.
Appearance: Beautiful fizzy pour. Two fingers of solid but ephemeral head. Still and mysterious like a swamp. Enticing dark-auburn color, like an old church pew hidden in the attic of grandma's house.
Smell: Toffee, caramel, brown butter. Nuttiness abounds. Toasted grains, quinoa. Raisin. Old wine, most likely port. As it warms up, booze and wood come out to play. Milk chocolate confection (Milka).
Taste: Follows nose, intensified. More of that toffee, brown sugar, sweetness galore but not overwhelming. Candied bacon, bourbon gastrique. Syrup, fruit cake. Oak, vanilla, black pepper. Chestnut mousse and roasted parsnip. Reminds me of drinking Aventinus Eisbock or Samichlaus, but more refined. The Kentucky barrel is not immediately present but well blended with the overall brew.
Moutfeel: Low carbonation, medium body and full taste. Prickly-spicy feel. Sweetness in check.
Overall: I didn't like it as much as the first time (that 4.75 rating) but this is still a great beer. I enjoyed it more than Sucaba... drinks rather well for such a huge beer. Slighty one-dimensional perhaps, and a tad too filling, but it makes for a lovely sipper. Definitely would buy and enjoy again.
