A nice brown color with small cream head. Crisp floral aroma. Taste is far more hops than malt. Missed the style, more Double IPA than Double Brown

"Pretty nice robust hoppy brown. Looks like your average brown ale but there’s more chocolate, coffee, and bitterness than usual. The citrusy American hops are a little odd, but it kinda works."

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a light chocolate color tinted with a dark fruit. A light mocha colored head with a spotty lacing. A nutty mild chocolate aroma with a background of some light citrus hops. At first sip a nice creaminess is present with a tropcal note full of carbonation on the tongue. As it settles the chocolate mouthfeel takes over with a very small chocolate taste. The darker flavors that come later are a bit overpowered from the original hoppy taste and feel. A lemon flavor comes in at the end that is almost lemon tea flavored. Not sure if this one is particularly to style exactly but oh well. A very weird brew but I did enjoy it. I knew there was a reason I grabbed this one. Clown Shoes definitely keeps me guessing.

Shared at my Summer Plunder Tasting by Mick. A dark brown almost black pour with a thick fizzy tan head. Chewy malts & sweet nutty caramel in the nose. Great soft round sparkling carbonation. The taste is soft cocoa, nutty, a bit tangy chewy malt goodness. Nice.

Bomber. Cloudy burny brown, with a massive rocky off-white cap and thick lacing. Aroma is pine and citrus rind hops, with some very roasty caramel. Earthy and rooty. Taste is relatively bitter, with a balanced sweetness. Creamy mouthfeel, long dry finish.
