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.

Bozo might just be one of the weirdest things Evil Twin has ever brewed, and thatís putting Bozo against an entire inventory of left-field beers. Evil Twin has always gleefully extended a middle finger to convention, even in the very establishment which itís a part of. The craft trend of infusing Imperial Stout with all manner of add-ons gets a playful send-up here. The resulting beer is so goddamn overwhelming you canít help but smile. Itís spicy/sweet/bitter all at once. As youíd expect for a brew thatís 17.2%, itís heavy and demanding. With a brew this overpowering, youíll wear out your palate trying to pinpoint things. Maybe thatís the point. Bozo is liquid parody; itís a joke. If you canít take it, Bozoís answer is frank: fuck you.

HuskerTan (1560) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - JUL 3, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2016 Bottle. A- Subtle chilies, cocoa, burnt sugar, raw vanilla. A- Black color, dark liquid, minimal head. T- Chilies, cinnamon, cocoa, booze, sugar, sweet. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, complex finish. O- Pours black with a very quickly dissipating brown head. A ton of booze in here and way too many flavors. Sort of tasty, but with a little refinement, not so many ingredients and a lower abv and this would be amazing. Too much.

Bottle into a tulip. Pours black, with a moderate brown head. Nose is coffee, chocolate, and caramel, and the taste follows. A hint of booze on the finish. Nice long finish without any stickyness. Delicious.

On tap at Underground. Pours a deep black with a thin tan head. Warm roast and alcohol on the nose, tobacco and leathery, coffee. Thicker side of medium, big roast and warning alcohol early. Cocoa, toasty, thick and full of chocolate. Sweetness gets into some fruity notes with more roast. Huge, yet quite drinkable.
