Buonissima interpretazione americana di brown Ale. Molto luppolata e abbastanza ruffiana. Non stanca mai.Jentex (1) - Alabama, USA - OCT 28, 2016 does not count

Great taste and feel for a brown. It has a smooth taste and a lot of carbonation. bseribeer (128) - Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2011
Pleasantly surprised with Clown Shoes. This new brew was released in February of 2011 and its a winner. Pours a hazy brown with a pillowy, tan head. Aromas strong of coffee and chocolate. Medium body, with with a rather bitter finish. Lots of chocolate and coffee notes. Overall, this brown will not disappoint. Almost like a hybrid of an IPA and chocolate stout. mmmbeer (1419) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2011
22 oz. bottle served in snifter- served an almost transparent very darkened brown with hints of ruby shading, solid foamy off tan head formed, laced- soft, yet firm, like booty. Thick aroma of raisons, plums, dark caramel, slightly roasted malt, with hops trying to make itself know amongst the crowd. Hits the mouth with wide and lucious body, malt was slightly sweetened but seems to be cut with chocolate, middle holds up fine, finish winks at you wanting to you try more. I don’t see what’s so offensive about the label- perhaps it’s for the snots that don’t know how to use their equipment- 2 minute miracle men and "layers" combined. Being in several interracial relationships during the course of my life, one was one of the best lovers I ever had. Almost 10 years after those times, I still get a smile about some of the stuff we did... DAMN it’s hot in here... thanks for the memories, and damn good beer!!! dnstone (3404) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Nice brown color . Roasty-hoppy in both aroma and taste, especially for a brown ale.

Pours a dark amber from growler. Off white head. Aroma of roasted malts and choco coffee. Taste of earthy hops and a slight chocolate taste. Dry bitter finish. Medium body with a sticky texture. Lively carbonation. Very refreshing and easy to drink. superspak (5581) - Michigan, USA - SEP 22, 2013
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 6/19/2013. Pours nearly opaque dark reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense and rocky khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, tangerine, chocolate, caramel, toast, toffee, light nuttiness, light coffee, floral, pine, and floral earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop and dark malt notes; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, tangerine, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, toffee, light nuttiness, floral, pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, chocolate, cocoa, caramel, coffee, toast, toffee, light nuttiness, floral, pine, and floral/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of hop and dark malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent hoppy brown ale! All around great balance and complexity of hop and dark malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
