Had an opportunity to try this beer at Freshcraft in downtown Denver. The place was claustrophobicly packed with people, but I'm glad I stuck around to try this beer. So full they didn't have proper glassware.

A&S: Brown/black colored beer. No head or sign of carbonation. Spots of oily slicks on the top. Huge toffee and caramel notes. Not a ton of chocolate and only a hint of coffee. Alcohol in the mix, but not overly present.

T&M: Amazingly unique. Tons of Toffee and caramel again. Dark fruits and milk chocolate mixed in. Similar to the aroma alcohol is there but not in your face and especially not for pushing 20% ABV. Didn't get any nutty notes. Incredibly smooth and silky. Very thick and chewy body.

Overall: Unbelievably good. I broke my no more than $1 an ounce rule, but honestly it was more than worth it. Easily goes down in my top 5 for any style and would come close to rivaling CBS(even though they are completely different). I really hope I have a chance some day to sit down with a bottle of the beer and give it the rating justice it deserves, instead of quick notes.
