djd07 (10520) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Bomber. Pours a clear amber with a medium frothy off white head leving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a bready malt, raisin, and licorice. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet vanilla malt and light resin hops with lingering bitter finish. Easy to drink hiding alcohol well, a very impressive American strong ale from Clown Shoes.
