It’s black with a tan etched surface. Smells of cocoa, cinnamon, graham, some vanilla. Flavor is chocolate with a bit of vanilla, tobacco, leather some breads. It’s really a failure for its ad, but good as a stout. Medium on full bodied and a dry finish. Decent beer, but not what was adverts.

Pours black, slight brien hues on the edges, finger creamy khaki head, nice thin lacing. Aroma chocolate, earthy, bready and roasty malt, slight cinnamon, and burnt sugar. Taste roast astringency, chocolate, earthy, spicy cinnamon, burnt sugar, bit of coffee and dark fruit in the finish. Mouthfeel full body, low carbonation, slight hop and cinnamon bite, alcohol and roast astringency, finish is balanced, spiciness and roast lens dry feel. Overall different imperial stout, in a good way, very complex, builds on style’s foundation, and adds to it.

"This well done brew is climbing the charts. Really nice all around. Big black beer with two finger mocha head. Aroma is predominantly chocolate and vanilla, but the spices and peppers are there. A little more pepper in the flavor. A thick brew, but smooth and no heat for a 9% brew. Possibly the best Clown Shoes beer."

Shared by AZ brother. Thanks bro.
Near black appearance with a beige cap. Chocolate, roast, laugh spice aroma. Chocolate dominates the flavor. Chili heat is mild. A touch of vanilla, cacao, distant coffee. Sweetness throughout, perhaps a little much. This was ok, but could certainly stand a few improvements.

9% Shared at my Summer Plunder Tasting by Mick. A lovely dark brown almost black with red highlights and a tan head. Umami, vanilla, chocolate syrup and ancho chilli. Some warming going down this medium bodied beer rocks an earthy chocolate, vanilla and ancho chili heat. This is a very well balanced chocolate beer.

Bottle to pint glass
Chocolate, chilies, caramel, cherry, port, muffin. Silky black, small quicky dissipating frothy brown head, no lacing. Taste begins with caramel, green chili, then the chocolate comes through, but more of a bittersweet chocolate, theres something acidic there, kind of like blackberry, and finally, a bitter coffee ending. 👍

Bottle at home. Pours a thick dark brown with two fingers of brown head. Aroma is lots of chocolate mad some roasted malts. Flavor is pretty sweet and chocolaty like chocolate milk. Slight chili but not much. Full bodied and creamy. A bit boozy on the finish. Nice interesting beer.
