3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Running through the clown shoes line up here and if I haven’t said it before then ill cover it here. These guys make so many different styles of beer I’m amazed they are able to make them all somewhat solid and drinkable. If you were doing a tasting you’d be able to grab 10 of these guys beers and show off the style and flavors of craft beer. Nutty pecan aroma. Sweet and full bodied flavor. Finish is sticky sweet. Great desert beer here. Would also go well at the high holidays. Christmas and Easter.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, poured deep black with almost no head. Aroma is sweet with scents of brown sugar and caramel. Pecan flavor is faint, but nice. Carbonation lingers for a moment. Finishes smooth. Taste is reminiscent of some milk stouts I've had. Overall good porter.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Total Wine. Pours a viscous ebony body with a thumbnail of brown head that diminishes fast. Lush and velvety on the nose with a scent reminiscent of a chocolate malted milk shake. Flavors include caramel, cocoa bean, toasted nuts, bread, and subtle pine in the finish. Medium/full body and full carbonation. This is a nice porter with good flavor without being overbearing.

This is a very good beer with the pecan taste met with the maltiness of the porter. Enjoyed very much.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bomber split wth Tomaz @ home.
Brune foncée, col moyen, moka, fin doré au verre.
Arôme donne ce bouquet agréable de noix de pécan quoique ce dernier reste discret. Le tout indique une petite rondeur de sucre caramélisé suivi d’une pointe d’amertume/citronné.
Palais est malté, caramel grillé avec ce petit côté noisette-pécan. Le tout est assez discret, et je déplore ici ce profil sucré-sucre brun qui domine toute la bière la rendant trop douce. Le tout est sec et une effervescence moyenne-haute.
Au final, bière agréable mais dont j’attendais plus. J’avoue avoir acheté cette dernière sur base de l’étiquette, très sympa. Clown Shoes reste solide comme brasserie.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Pours deep brown, nearly black with a medium sizedcreamy, tan head. Aroma of chocolate, brown sugar, toasted pecans and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry. Medium to full bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice and interesting porter.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
If all this beer does is teach people how to say pecan properly (yes, it rhymes with Khan), then it is a success. Black pour with a large, brown head that recedes somewhat quickly. Nose is pecan, clove, spice, cinnamon, light earth, faint roast. Flavor is cinnamon, pecan pie, pecans, clove, vanilla, earth, roast. Full mouthfeel, with an ashy tasting medium bitter finish. I like how the smoke plays more of a back end note than a dominant up front flavor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet roasty aroma. Pours dark almost black with a dark tan head which fades relatively quickly leaving lots of lacing. Sweet, nutty, roasted malt. Medium bodied. Very nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bomber pours with a mahogany colored body that briefly supports a weak dark tan head. The aroma offers up muted aged cinnamon spice, ginger and a sweet orange hard candy note. At the edges of the aroma might be dusty dry nuttiness but it is so light it could be something else. The taste begins with sweet malts and some sweet nuttiness and then moves into a sort of cinnamon spice to roasted malt sort of mixture. It’s not really gelling for me.

Solid porter, hints of nuttiness, roaste notes, a solid beer, the brewery is growing on me.
