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.

jackl (5919) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Bottle. Black in color with a medium tan head. The nose is grassy, a bit of pepper some roasted malts. The taste is of roasted flavors, some coffee. Hoppy dry finish. The palate is light/medium, the finish a bit watery. The carbonation active. Overall, an inoffensive black IPA. Nicely made, though boring.

nick76 (4315) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2012
The aroma is very hoppy and toasted with grassy and pine hops. There is both citrus and coffee here. The appearance is dark brown with a thin head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall an interesting beer but to astringent.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Bottle from pikapp327. Dark pour with a massive tan head that is just massive. Aroma is dry chocolate, coffee, and a little dirty. Taste is bitter chocolate, light coffee, and fairly roasted. I don’t feel any west coast hops at all. Not bad, though.

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

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Pours black with a little head. Aroma was good but I don’t remember anything specific. Taste was good but after taste was horrible.

lusikka (7599) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2012
650 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a firm foamy head. Aroma of overly ripe mango, ash and grassy hops. Flavour of roasted malts, ash, overly ripe mango, grassy hops and some saltiness. Carbonation is very high and mouthfeel is foamy. Medium bodied and a roasty, quite bitter finish. Unbalanced and I really don’t like the hop profile. Carbonation is so high this actually reminds me of highly carbonated water.

kseecs16 (1213) - 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.
