A - Pours very dark. Its almost black. it has a one finger fluffy tan head with very good retention. Nice lacing as well. Great looking beer

S - The aroma is much lighter than I anticipated. Some roasted coffee, caramel and maybe a slight hint of raisins.

T - Wow. Not light on flavor. Lots gonig on here and I like it. Lots of coffee flavor. Chocoalte and toffee in the back with perhapsa little caramel. Sometimes sweet sometimes its bitter!

M - Big heavy beer. Quite thick in the mouth. Very nice burn.

O - Love this beer. First time I have been able to find it. I will be looking for it again. Have had the non imperial Three Blind Mice many times. Its good but this is much better!

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.

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.

Pours an effervescent copper/brown with a thumb of tan head. Average head retention & lacing

S: Brown bread & caramel

T: Rich caramel, some nutty notes, a touch of grainyness up front. More caramel, nuttyness some leafy & herbal hops, a little booze bite, not much & serious dryness. Finshes with woody hops, dryness, a touch of grapefruit & nice caramel sweetness

MF: Rich, beefy, fairly firm carbonation, nice balance

Drinks easy for the ABV (9.6%), an enjoyable dopplesticke. Well done again Mother's!

This beer was delicious.

It was very smooth and flavorful; the nose was complex and appealing. It smelled of lots of malts. The mouthfeel was a bit bubbly, but it wasn't unsuitable for the style.

I had it on a lunch break and had a great afternoon at work afterward.
