Lube? Hey, get your mind out of the gutter! Social lubrication, people coming together to unwind, is what we are talking about. This American Black Ale has a dark body, medium bitterness, balanced with West Coast hops and sweet orange peel.

Bottle. The pour is black with a lot of over carbonation, thinking infection. The taste is heavy malt and actually tastes under carbonated weirdly. A decent black ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Pours dark brown with a decent tan head that fades with some time. Nose is immediate citrus, oranges, tropical fruits, pines, dark chocolate, and sharp dark roasted malts. Flavor is sharp roasted malts again, chocolate, coffee, sweet caramel malts, citrus complexities and fruits. Medium body and moderate carbonation with a dry satisfying finish. Flavor and bitterness lingers slightly. Very nice.

kseecs16 (1215) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Bottle. Pours an opaque dark black with a huge billowing tan head. Leaves a sleeve of lacing down the glass. Aroma is full of roast malt and some citrusy hoppy notes. Beers is highly carbonated, foamy feeling with some bland roastiness and little hop presence. A nice aroma followed by a disappointing flavor and body.

SPDickerman (1193) - Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2012 Pours very, very dark brown, almost black with a creamy tan head. Smells strongly roasted with hints of orange, almost like orange flavored dark chocolate. Taste is primarily a dry, roasted bitterness with hints of orange, though very faint; but the flavors really explode when the beer warms up. Medium-bodied with a dry texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Clown Shoes Lubrication finishes with a mild dry bitterness.

llcooldave (1189) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2011
Pours black with a soapy caramel cola colored head. Roasted malt aroma followed my some citrusy pine. Decent flavor balance of roasted malt, coffee, dark cocoa and piney, minty hops. Overall, for my first sampling of Clown Shoes, its a winner!

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Bottled August 2011. Pours very, very dark red, a deep burgundy/brown when held to light, with a 2.5-finger frothy brown head that recedes to a small head and leaves some sticky lacing. The flavor is lightly bitter earth and bark, unsweetened cocoa, and some light mocha sweetness. Low to medium carbonation, a bit creamy, and easy drinking. Tasty, with nice bitterness; what happened to the provocative label?? [854]

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2011
Very dark - good thick tan head. Lots of chocolate malt in the aroma. Taste is tons of dark malt - chocolate and coffee with what must be a ton of hops to almost balance it. There’s so much malt for those hops to overcome, but it can’t quite do it, and that makes it a really nice beer.

Nice dark pour from bottle. Taste is roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate, soy sauce and pine. Nice.
