Decent nutty malt and slightly hoppy aroma. Soft brown color with a medium head. Hoppier than most brown ales that was balanced by a roasted and nutty malt base. Good and nice to see them go off their standard beers.

Dark brown pour. 1" white head. Sweet aroma. Nice balance between the malts and hops. My first Clown Shoes, not the last.

22 oz bottle at home. Pours a dark brown color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, chocolate, earthy, mild resiny hops, woody, some brown sugar sweetness, decent take on a style that is typically very boring.

Full bodied with a beautiful blend of dark malts - this is the kind of brown ale I like. Leather toffee nose. Rich round bitter chocolate cake mouth (slight alcohol taste) with a lightly bitter finish. A truly exceptional example of this style.

Pours a dark amberish brown with a thin light tan head. The nose has notes of chocolate and licorice that includes a bit of hop aroma as well. First sip is malty and roasted moderately with coffee and chocolate flavours. Rich and malty with a bit of a sweet overbearing flavour. The finish has nutty and chocolate notes as well as citrusy hops and a smooth finish.

Bottle shared. Cheers Sean. Pours reddish brown with thin tan head. Aroma is Bubblegum, banana, nuts, yeast, cinnamon. Flavour is sweet nut with hazelnut finish. Low carbonation. Probably a bit sweet for me but plenty of carbonation.

Dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of brown sugar and molasses. Flavor is rich and sweet, flavors of molasses. Mildly bitter finish keeps it from being too sweet.
