Motherís MILF - Brandy
22 ounce bottle from MartinVanBeer. Thanks! Poured into a teku. The beer is a thick black with a khaki head of foam. The aroma has rich chocolate brownies with waves of boozy brandy and jam. Sweet and chocolatey, but then the fruity notes of the brandy and raisin come through. Really tasty stuff. Big body, thick mouthfeel, a bit slick, and a moderate level of carbonation. Quite good overall.

Motherís Tart Peach
Pour is a clear yellow with a large white head. Aroma is of sweet peach and some neutral malt. Flavor is a mild peach and not very tart. You would not no this is a tart beer if it did not say it on the can. Just a so-so fruit beer that is not very tart.

Aroma vanilla cream and raisins. Taste is reminiscent of Dogfish Head's 90 Minute with less of a spice and more of a light creaminess. Solid beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Motherís MILF - Brandy
Fobab 2016. Lots of raisins and sweetness. Big brandy presence. Didnít realize it was raisins added until I looked at the listing, thought it was all from the brandy. Enjoyed this better than the standard version side by side.

On nitro tap at Shakespeare in CoMo. Fun to watch separate. Very creamy foam. Plenty of cocoa here. Citrus and figs. The beer was a little thin after the foam separated. Rather sweet.

Motherís Loopty Loop
Sampled from a bottle at the 2016 Tanglefoot Fest, it poured a clear golden colour with weak white foam. Simple grainy flavour, no distinctive hop traits, light body, average carbonation, bland aftertaste. Unmemorable pale lager, definitely not a classic example of the Dortmunder/Helles style, but decent overall.

Motherís Three Blind Mice
Tasted on tap at the 2016 Tanglefoot Fest, it poured a brown colour with weak off-white foam. Malty and a little toasty, caramelly, not much else. Vague hoppy balance, nothing special in this nor the yeast department. Definitely drinkable, not deeply flawed per se, but lacks the body, fruitiness, complexity of a good brown ale. Forgettable.

Sampled at Doranís. Hazy golden with a white thinner head. Nice grapefruit nose also has more citrus. This is nice. Full of grapefruit but it is more sweet than bitter. Zest and melons. This is very drinkable and enjoyable. Good.

Pours a copper color. Depending on the light it looks like purple or copper or bronze. About one finger white head. Very little retention, no lacing.

Aroma is wheat, and wheat beer. Itís a wheat beer and it smells like a wheat beer. Smells of berries, kinda.

Tastes like wheat beer. Maybe some berries or pomegranate.

Mouthfeel is light and refreshing. It is a little tart. It is very drinkable. No alcohol taste. Itís a bit gritty like a wheat beer.

Overall, itís not go good. For a wheat beer, itís decent. But overall itís poor. Itís average for the style. If you have had one wheat beer, youíve had this one. Nothing special. I wouldnít buy this again, and Iím not going to recommend it. Meh!

0.355l bottle from trade with ig88b. Thanks man! Looks really nice in the glass this, almost like pouring dark motor oil in the glass (not that Iíve actually ever done that before). Itís really deep dark, almost black in color and it has a nice little loud head. Loud, by what can only be described as fizzing. Dark beige or brown in color. Smells really nice. Rich dark chocolate, a nice but sharp alco sting, tones of burnt sugar and a really rich dark roastiness. Traces of cold coffee, coffee latte actually! Added cream. Thatís what it is.. It actually a bit thin and boozy in the taste above average on the carbonation. Tastes sharp and a tad unbalanced. Almost a little phenolic in a way. Lots of nice chocolate though, and itís definitely barrelled! Rum and smoke are definitely prominent. The rich and bitter sweet kind of chocolate. Cocoa with hints of licorice in the finish. The sweet kind. It really grew on me this down the glass this. Even though it smoothen itself after gaining some temp I still wish the mouthfeel had been a tad more pleasant. 17.10.2014

Tallboy can. It poured a cloudy light orange color with a white head. The aroma was of grapefruit with a touch of malts and wheat. The taste was similar to the aroma with more grapefruit and some coriander. It had a pretty dry finish. Decent.

Bottle. It poured a jet black color with a tan head. The aroma was of chocolate malts and slight coffee beans. The taste was similar to the aroma with some espresso coffee, chocolate a hint of vanilla and roasted malts. There was some mild hop presence in the finish as well as a lingering dark chocolate and vanilla. Very tasty.

Pours an effervescent gold with a thumb+ of ivory colored head. Good head retention & lacing. Slight graininess & grassiness. Follows the nose, some wet cereal up front. Grassyness & grain as this warms, some soapy hops as well. Finishes with grainy sweetness & grassiness. Medium body, soft carbonation, pretty good balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Our American Pale Ale struts a pleasant hop aroma with hints of citrus while the subtle malt character creates a not so uncanny balance. Refreshing and crisp in both color and Taste, every drop of Mother’s Uncanny is deliciously easy drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thick black pour with tan head, thanks a ton Brandon! Aroma brought notes of dark cocoa, cocoa nibs, dark fruits, spirit barrels with rum, brandy notes prevailing, some vanilla. Taste was a mix of dark fruit, chocolate, cherry, cocoa nibs, hints of oak, rum, slight whiskey, finishing sweet, great mouthfeel. Excellent.

Bottle. Standard visuals, amber and capped in white foam. Frothy and firm, with normal American pale ale characteristics -- moderately hoppy with a middle of the road flourish, solid base, clean balance. Good sipper, but doesnít stand out in a crowded field. (#6210, 6/12/2016)

Bottle. Although I think this beer a horrible idea, I guess I gotta give it a shot. It looks like many other amber, bubbly brews, but definitely has a spring bloom-like aroma. It doesnít drink with nearly the sweetness Iíd feared, and instead is quite well-balanced, yet still accompanied by a distinct tropical flourish. Not my cup of witbier, but not bad for someone looking for a lighter option. (#6209, 6/12/2016)

It pours clear golden with a white head. The aroma has some caramel, spice, astringent cucumber peel and some French saison yeast. It has a medium body body with sharp carbonation. The taste has the aroma notes, lots of astringent notes, cucumber juiciness, spice and mild saison. Okay, but better than expected.

Pours copper brown with an off white head. Via Roma has a lot of perfume, mildly toasted malt and some mushiness. It has a medium body with some sharpness and mild carbonation. It starts with some perfume and mushiness. It then gets very astringent and metallic. Kind off putting. Usually like motherís, but this wasnít for me.
