Bottle# 296 pours a scarlet tinged brown with a pinky of tan head. Alright lacing & head retention

S: Big time raspberry, black currant, hints of booze

T: Raspberrry, chocolate, dryness, toasty malt & black curant up front. Chocolate & raspberry mingle as this warms, pluss some cocoa powder, plus a bit of booze warmth & vanilla mingling with some woody hops & a bit of modest smokeyness. Finsihes with a nice raspberry flourish, dry with a touch of caramel & vanilla

MF: Medium bodied with faint carbonation, warming, but also a bit thin on body as this warms

Three Blind Mice is an Alt bier. This seems to be more fruit forward, so I deemed it a fruit beer. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong as there is no Imp Alt category...

Tasty & satisfying, not world-beating, but I would buy this again

22oz bottle from LambicPentameter (many thanks!). No bottling date but this is labled as bottle #1808, whatever that means. Served in a goblet.

Pours a garnet hued deep brown with almost two fingers of beige head. The bubbles fade to a tiny ring around the edge that leaves only a few ocassional patches of lace.

Aromas of raspberry, cereal grains, molasses and a little cocoa.

Flavor has a serious milk chocolate covered raspberries thing going on. Nice! Raspberry, chocolate, molasses, mildly tart stone fruit skin, caramel, earth, tobacco and enough alcohol presence to remind you to respect it. The berries and smoothness of flavor make this not quite refreshing but much easier to drink than you may assume for it's near double digit booze bill.

Creamy, medium full body with moderately sharp carbonation. Semi tart berry, chocolate and burnt sugar finish but that raspberry goodness lingers on the for a really long time.

I still prefer an imperial stout but this is a mighty fine brown ale. The raspberry addition is spot on- enough to be consistently present but it leaves room for the chocolatey caramel base. Not sure I'd go out of my way for it but I'll happily consume it if another chance comes up.

Deep brown with amber highlights. Fingernail thick tightly woven head of beige head is on top. Brussels lacing. Seriously sweet aroma of a raspberry sauce is all I get,but it is appealing. The mouth is unexpectedly warm and silky smooth. I detect plenty of dark malt,fig,and coffee notes. There's definitely raspberry,but unlike the aroma it is a background note on the palate. A great dessert beer.
