Imperial Three Blind Mice, once Mother's little brown beer, is now all grown up and running the show. Rich and full bodied with chocolate, coffee, and caramel malt flavors, it bestows a noble hop nose and balanced finish on its loyal subjects.

Light tan head. Dark brown. Very sweet caramel nose. Caramel flavor with some booziness and dark fruits. There's a mild coffee bitterness for a nice balance. There is also a definite tang to the flavor. Overall, very similar to a Scotch ale.

Bottle from RobertDale, thanks for the opportunity!
slightly hazy dark brown with reddish highlights at the edges and a frothy tan head that persists. Brown sugary caramel maltiness with hints of chocolate and a touch of ethanol as well as a slight ashy chalky mouthfeel. Decent strong ale.

Big brown head, fades fast.

Roasty aroma with dark, tart fruit. Coffee and grapes.

Flavor follows. Very roasty, leaning toward coffee. Slightly sweet and just a touch tart. Slightly metallic.

Creamy mouthfeel; a touch of sting. Oily finish.

This brew could be an Old Raspy clone. It's not quite as bitter or roasty.
