4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle from craftshack, pours like a deep mahogany, minimal head. over flowing with cherries, raisin, light caramel, and toffee. light carbonation, almost flat but its works out keeping this full body beer flow off the palate. cherries linger.

Well done. A very tasty beer. Subtle flavour of toffee but not too sweet. Worth a revisit. Nice colouring and head. Would recommend for a barley wine aficionado.

I totally pass on this one going forward. So far I have not been a fan of clown shoes.

June 26, 2015 - bottle from AV3. Muddy brown pour with some head. Aroma was caramel, booze and spice. Taste had the caramel sweetness with some dark fruit, wood and spice. Finished with a rich alcohol / cognac that had the right amount of heat.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From bottle - Murky brown with a small creamy beige head, didn’t stick around. Flavor is just big rich English barleywine. Pretty sweet, but the spicy alcohol and old wood dry things out pretty well. There is some sweet rich cognac in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650 ml bottle, deep brown with thin white head. Nice aroma sweet barely wine notes of dates, raisin and a very light notes of cognac.
The flavor is rich yet, not overly sweet. Molasses, dark fruits and a light warming sensation without any alcohol hints. Very soft carbonation that gives a smoothness. Body medium leaning on the full side. Really nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very hazy dark reddish brown. super murky beer. a small dark white head. The aroma is pretty insane. sweet and burnt brown sugar, baked apples and a little graham cracker / animal crackers. This is a good beer. Has a great toffee and apple taste to it. brown sugar, grape tannins and very old woody taste. Decadent and an interesting beer.
