UPDATED: AUG 9, 2012 Pours pitch black with small tan head. Smells a bit piney, very malty. Tastes of chocolate, roasted malts, and good bitter hops. Medium to full bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Clown Shoes Hoppy Feet Black IPA finishes with a touch of roasted, chocolate dryness and a touch bitter.

Clown Shoes Hoppy Feet is a solid black ale with a huge, lumpy, tan head that stays put and leaves outstanding lacing. It turns into a ceramic, nitrogen-looking head. I’ve never seen a head like that from a bottle. It has an aroma of sweet malt, grass, flowers and a soft roastiness. It’s full bodied, super smooth and creamy with a clean, dry finish. The flavor is a perfect balance between soft roastiness and a botanical bitterness. There’s just a touch of sweetness that is erased in the bitter finish. The aftertaste is kind of ashy. Wow, I could drink a bathtub full of this. These Clown Shoes guys are really on the ball.

Pours jet black with a big frothy tan head that sticks around for a while. Aroma is big pine and grapefruit hops. Taste is sweet chocolatey malts that melt away to a cascade of grapefruit hop bitterness for a nice, long finish. Magnificent beer.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This inky black beer pours with a thin tan head. It has orange marmalade and roasted coffee flavours with chocolate, vanilla, oak and rich red fruit and pine on the finish. Excellent!

Draft. Pours black with creamy head that lingers. No noticeable carbonation with medium hop aroma. This is a black ipa and an excellent example of the style. Nice hop aroma flavor with rich malt flavors. Yum! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a very delicious black IPA. This is the most well-balanced black IPA I have had. Full of flavor with a perfect blend of Hops.

Wow. Tap at mellow mushroom. Pours almost black with small froth head. Great balance of hop bitterness and smooth black fullness. Once you go black.... ---Rated via my mouth

Aroma is smoky AND hoppy, and I like both! It has an undertone of chocolate and a hint of fresh-cut wood, enough to get me drooling. It pours a luscious dark chocolate brown with a fluffy and rather persistent light tan head that sticks around for a bit and leaves some good lacing. Flavor is hoppy and bitter with a hint of evergreen and a mocha undertone and a touch of licorice. Full-bodied texture is smooth yet edgy, and quite fizzy, leaving a hoppy and chocolaty finish. Hoppy Feet will give you a happy mouth!

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2014
Cask at GBBF 2012. Poured near black, with a thin off white head. Massive aroma of dark chocolate, resinous hops, liquorice, slight smoke and roast malt. Full mouth feel. Lots of bitter, grassy hops, with note of pine, burnt malt and berries. Finish was perfectly balanced bitter, burnt coffee and grain, with lots of lingering hops and just a touch of treacle. Lovely!

Hoppy Feet is a very fragrant black IPA with nice firm and creamy light brown foam. The surprise a lot with its aroma, because it smells wildly from chocolate notes. Not like the classic dark chocolate as many beer smells of, but rather as good homemade brownie or chocolate cake. I could be forgiven for thinking that it was stout they had in the glass, but in the background lurks also a bittersweet discrete citrus aromas, and then you know that waiting an exciting IPA. The taste is good and rich and long taste of both chocolate malt and hard roasted malt tones with good fruity balance going towards something apricot and passion fruit. Hop bitterness is gentle and citrusy, and keeps well in the background to the malt tones of. Then sneak Columbus and Amarillo hops (here I cheated and read hops types on label) slowly into the back of the tongue and fills the mouth with a long and pleasant hoppy taste, which stands in attractive relief to the IPA’s malted impression. It is rare to experience an American IPA in good balance for most American IPA’s used to be more hoppy aggresive. This is simply very good.
