bottle. deep brown pour with a medium sized, whipped tan head. nose of caramel and nuts but not as brown as it looks. notes of cola. flavor has light nuts and caramel with handful of melted milk chocolate. i do like the chocolate flavors, but i really like more nutty/toasted notes in browns. the floral finish pretty nice. overall, i like the idea but a few tweaks would work better for me personally. one of their better offerings though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bomber from another trade with simth4498, thanks Jason. Poured an ugly muddy orange/brown with a tiny foamy beige head. Aroma reminds me of a black IPA with the strong hop prescence over a solid malt body. Citrus hops, yellow grapefruit meat, tootsie roll, brown toast crust. Flavor of chocolate, tootsie roll, hard roll, citrus rind, grapefruit. Nice body with stonger carbonation over a slightly watery body, strong biter finish that lingers. This is yet another good beer from Clown Shoes.

On tap at Monsters of beer 2011. Pours a dark amber with a small frothy off white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is a raisin malt and chocolate. Medium mouthfeel with sweet caramel malt flavor. Easy to drink a very good brown ale from Clown Shoes.
