4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap, pours a dark brown with quickly dissipating khaki fizz. The aroma is a wonderful boozy bourbon sweetness that with eyes closed wouldn?t be thought of as beer. The flavor is a nicely done beer, a dark brown throughout, the dry oak feel and sweet bourbon are in the front and make this a really nice barrel aged beer, giving you what you?d hope for and a little more.

Tap - average size foamy head, very dark amber/brown color, strong boozy aroma and flavor, sweet malty backbone, definite bourbon and vanilla notes, definitely a sipper but pretty good

3.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Starts with a bourbon forward flavor and a hint of maple. The sweetness is reigned in by the potency of the alcohol and coffee notes.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Multifaceted and pungent, acidic aroma of bourbon, vanilla, oak, cherry, wood, booze. Deep brown with red highlights appearance-wise. Small, tightly bubbled head that retains well with creamy lacing ring. Tastes just like it smells - lots of acid, etc. Though a strong beer, it doesnít strike me as heavy-bodied - goes down pretty smooth, all things considered. Not noticing the chocolate or coffee presence in this one. Would never guess it related to the regular TBM that Motherís makes, actually. Amazing how much bourbon and higher booze levels can change a beer! Anyway, pretty tasty stuff - a nice American Strong, best for slow sipping due to high booze and sharpness.
