Notes/Commercial Description:
You're in for a treat with this one. Brewed with cocoa nibs and raisins and then lovingly aged in rum, sherry, bourbon, brandy and whiskey barrels, this big beer takes on flavors from the spirit and wood of each barrel. The end result is a complex and elegant companion that's right for carefree nights of privilege and excess.

A - Pours a rich dark black with a nice 1 inch tan foam that hangs around for a bit but never fully disappears. There are small mountains of lacing creating a nice scenic background around my glass.
S - Roasted malts dominate the nose, a lot of chocolate and vanilla
T - Very roasted flavor, again the chocolate dominates with vanilla rounding out at the end, its weird because there are hints of bourbon, whiskey maybe, nothing sticking right out at you but there is a very complex flavor to this beer.
M/D - Very smooth and silky. I want to make a beer that feels like this. Its so smooth and very drinkable. It reminds me of a less potent Parabola
I've had Velvet Merlin or whatever its called but I don't remember it being this good, so I think thats out the door...

Got this from Freddy from the Biergarten in Jenks, OK USA, cheers Freddy...

Pours jet black with a thumb of caramel colored head.nnNice viscious look to this, near zero head retention & lacing

S: Dark fruit (raisins& plums) & whiskey notes, some leafy hops; not as deep a nose as I had hoped for

T: Follows the nose, plus caramel & vanilla, plus milk chocolate & dryness up front. Faint smokeyness hides beneath the lucious sweetness & dark fruit notes, oaky dryness; just such a great blend of chocolate, caramel & dark fruit. Finishes dry, sweet, with a hint of molasess, chicory, a bit of sherry & molten chocolate cake, a touch of mint & coffee

MF: Chewy with slightly prickly carbonation, nice stickyness

ABV is completely masked, superior drinkabilty for the style. I must find this, Hopefully this becomes an annual release! This beer lacks some astethics but makes up for in taste easily A bloody good Imp Stout!

Reviewing MILF from Mother's Brewing Company out of Springfield, Missouri. Brewed with cocoa nibs and raisins, this imperial stout is aged in rum, sherry, bourbon, brandy and whiskey barrels and then blended.

Score: 91

March 2013 vintage bottle. Served in a Dark Lord snifter and enjoyed on 10/10/13.

Appearance: Pours a shiny black color with a thin layer of dark khaki head that settles to a thin ring around the glass. Below average lacing, average retention. 3.5/5

Smell: Raisins, chocolate, rum, sherry and oak. Very faint notes of bourbon. The rum is the most prominent barrel character followed by the oak. Vanilla notes too. 4/5

Taste: Cold, this beer is rough around the edges, oak forward and tannic. However, as it warms up, the complexities present integrate and marry nicely. Raisin, dark fruit, rum, caramel, bourbon, oaky vanilla and a smooth booziness throughout. This beer's alcohol presence is not hidden, but it is not cringingly boozy or fusel. Cocoa flavor in the finish. On the colder side, the sherry presence is a bit sharp, but it mellows out into a nice complementary complexity as the beer warms up, reminding me a bit of Utopias. There are a lot of flavors to appreciate here courtesy of the multi-barrel aging, and they really work well together once the beer warms up. Has a lingering sweetness, but the sweetness does not layer and overwhelm. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus bodied, low carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Sweet on the palate, slightly dry on the finish. 4/5

Overall: Tasty and complex, but the nose is not quite as well integrated as the taste and the mouthfeel could be a little bolder. Not quite the game changer "unknown stout" I was expecting a la my first encounter with Barrel Aged Abraxas at FOBAB last year, but still a good beer. Serve this one on the warmer side.

Cost: $10 for a four pack.
