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

on tap at antons in kansas city, i really liked this beer, my first form these guys. its really unique in thats its grain base is almost like a bock or a dark amber, big and hearty, moderately sweet, with all the layers you would expect in something like a barleywine. its pretty thick, dense, not overly carbonated by any means, but somehow enticing and compelling, satisfyingly large. the berries are what make the beer though, they are tart and fresh and not at all reserved. they provide jammy sweetness, juicy tang, and an acidity that helps cut the grain down a little bit. i love the freshness there, and the way this beer bends the style guidelines so much. i found it just a little too sweet for large volume consumption, and its alcohol is not all that well hidden, which i actually almost prefer as it warms up. i also think the strength has something to do with the extraction and preservation of the authentic raspberry flavor, and i would hate to have that aspect reduced because it whats makes this beer stand out. overall delicious, but not something i would do again if i wasnt sharing it. great first impression though from this brewery!
