22 oz bottle. Thanks Eric! The pour is more of a dark dark coppery color with a nice white head and no lacing to be found. The aroma is really sweet. There is a strong caramel malt presence and not a whole lot from the cognac barrel here. The flavor is a by more boozy but maintains that sweet dominance. The caramel and malts just meld pretty well and the finish is a bit hot. The mouth feel is a bit light with light carbonation and a decent, but really sweet lightly lingering aftertaste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy reddish brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with very good lacing. Moderate to heavy dark malt, toasted malt, vanilla, sweet alcohol and wood aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy dark malt, vanilla and alcohol sweet flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a complex solid beer.

22 oz bottle shared with Tmoney99 via a trade with TheEepiest from notes. Pours a hazy caramel brown color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, toffee, cognac, wood, some earthy notes, the English yeast adds something different than most, almost a floral note, alcohol is fairly well hidden, pretty solid.

Cybercat (4986) - Georgia, USA - OCT 15, 2015
Pours barely translucent chocolate brown with a decent light tan head. Fruity at a is sweet but not cloying. Fruit dominates the flavor but lets woody hop and malt notes share the stage. Mouthfeel features firm body and OK fizz. Feel like a billionaire!

GIJOE (1077) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - OCT 11, 2015
Pours brown with a foamy, white head that lasts a while. Nose is malty and boozy with dried fig notes. Taste is sweet. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Nice brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

More English style with strong aromas and flavors of caramelized malt with a tint of bitterness on the finish. The smell is sweet but that doesn’t translate strongly in the mouth. Well balanced and boozy. Full and smooth palate. Dark caramel color.

DocLock (9702) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Clown Shoes has become a top 25-er of mine. I love their beers, their labels, and actively seek out every new one I can find. This one was hazy dark brown with tan head. Somewhat sweet, heavy on the tongue, with molasses, cognac, oak, earthy woody notes, and fine tobacco. Heavy yet smooth finish. Outstanding.

lownote (493) - Austin, Alabama, USA - AUG 6, 2015
Pours a cloudy brown with a nice head. Syrupy cognac and malt aroma. Strong. Thick bodied. Super sweet. Kind of the richest thing imaginable. Gets a little cloying towards the end.

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.
