4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is roasted and dark, some licorice and dragon’s breath in there to. The taste is clean but thick from roasted malts, soy sauce, some wood and charcoal dipped in strong coffee. This one tastes just like the beast on the label, I really like Clown Shoes designs on the labels, it gives a strong image to their beers.

Aroma is deeply roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, rye and raisin. A light very well hop profile to balance out.Taste is a very full bodied cluster of dark malts, molasses, caramel and chocolate. Almost chewy mouthfeel. Appearance is a dark black with a dark brown head that retains fairly well. Very good beer and smooth considering the abv.
