Bought from Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido suggested by Jim. Poured into a pint glass a deep dark brown with minimal tan head. Aroma of spicy roasted chocolate & a bit of slight booze. Taste of deep dark fruits & chocolate, some vanilla, a touch of cinnamon. faint flavor of chile Dang overall this is great stout & one I would easily again! Clown Shoes got this brew so right.

doublebock (518) - California, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Aroma: Chocolate and roasted malt Appearance: Black with thin layer of tan head Taste: Chewy and smooth with rich chocolate, coffee and tobacco. Picking up the some of cinnamon on the finish Overall: It’s hard not to like the combo of cinnamon, chocolate and creamy stout. Would have like to taste some more of the chile.

Barreras (1114) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Pours a deep brown color with a roasted nut aroma. Taste is of roasted malt with a distinct hint of chile. A mild coffee flavor on the palate after the swallow. The chocolate flavor dissipates quickly. I love the clown on the bottle and this beer is a good representation of an Imperial Stout.

Of course chocolate and coffee in the nose. Tastes great. A dry dusty feel. I don’t taste any pepper really. Tasty beer.

Bottle. Pours dark black with a lite brown head that quickly dissipated. Nose is chocolatey with a spicy bite. Taste follows suit with a dark chocolate front and a small bite at the end. Great stout with a nice spice twist.
