COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a really big beer and we wanted to put it in small bottles, but the two bozos were so fat they couldnít fit on the label. Enjoy this rich, ridiculous and screwball-ish Imperial Stout with hints of: molasses, lactose, chocolate, almond, hazelnut, vanilla bean, cinnamon, oak spiral, chili, marshmallow, muscovado sugar, chesnut and coffee. Made for Bozos.

I loved this beer! It had all the qualities of an imperial stout that I look for these days. I found it to be a lot like the "Bomb" by Prairie but with way less chili on the back end. Pours a dark chocolate color with vanilla, hazelnut, hints of coffee. You name it...itís in there! Very well balanced for 17.2% ABV with little to no heat. I highly recommend this one to any stout lover.

Pours black with a small but decently well retained head and some lacing on the glass. The aroma is just hugely boozy with a bund of vanilla and dark chocolate, Itís got some coffee and molasses.

The flavor has lots of coffee and vanilla. Itís sweet, geeze it almost tastes like a classy ass Kahlula. Itís boozy, roasty, & has some dark fruit and molasses going on in the background.

Fun.... weird-ish... but fun.

hopscotch (9892) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2015
Bottle... Ink black pour with a small, creamy, nicely tanned head. The aroma is huge, featuring a blend of ethanol, blackstrap molasses, liquid fudge and jalapenos. Ultra Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and adequate carbonation. The flavor is burnt and bitter, offering fudge, blackstrap molasses and charcoal, flanked by a comfortable level of chili pepper and alcohol warmth that lingers a short while after each sip. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

Bomber at the kbs bottle share. Sweet and Boozy, all the flavors just kinda mix together into one big blah.

Bottle thanks to will. Nose is super boozy. Slightly peppery. Taste is completely complex. A lot of pepper and coffee. The alcohol is there in the mouthfeel but not hot. Drying.

50belair (2749) - Florida, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle. Black pour with a fleeting tan head. Loads of coffee and dark roasted malts. All kinds of dark roasted malts and expresso. Some bitterness to it, perhaps from the malts. Average body and mouthfeel.

chinchill (2552) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Large shared bottle of Bozo Beer Brewed at Westbrook Brewing (SC). Dark opaque body. Very rich. Various flavors and aromas donít come together nicely and, worse yet, it is too vegetative. Compared poorly to other imperial stouts at the same tasting session, including Eclipse.

Bottle. Pitch black with a creamy mocha head. What an enormous beer. Chocolate, roasted malt, marshmallow and a big chili pepper kick. Thick and sticky. Overwhelming and totally over the top but delicious.
