Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is all roast. Taste is roast, hops, slight citrus. A well balanced beer. Not overly complex. Very drinkable good stuff just doesnt really stand out.

Pours black and creates a pancake head. Earthy resin aromas. Semi-dry, with sweet dark caramel and mocha. Bitter abrupt finish. Pares well with chili.

Black pour with a nose of roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is bitter at first then the malts take over. Bitter finish. Not bad.

a beautiful dark color. That is very smooth with hints of licorice and not overpowering full body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: Dark brown body with a well-carbonated tan espresso head.
S: Straight fruity hop presence in the nose with out an expected smokey aroma.
T: Light, bubbly on the way down. Dry finish as an acute smoked presence starts to shine. Hoppy sensation on the sides of the mouth giving a warming sensation.
M: The smoked aspect lingers without being bitter at all.
O: Very impressed with Clown Shoes beer so far. Had Hoppy Feet a couple days ago which was extremely delicious beating out Stone’s 15th anniversary black strong ale. Lubrication did the trick for a 6% black ale but definitely on the lighter side for the style. Not explosive with flavor.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice brown color with a 1 finger head. The aroma is a little roasty with notes of hops and earthyness to it. It also has a bit of chocolate in there. The taste is just amazing. It has citrus piney hops up front with a nice malt smoothness in the back. Very easy to drink. This beer is a winner.

Not one of the better Clown Shoes beers - missing much interest. The aroma was inviting, but very thin and leaves me not happy
