4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep brownish black. Aroma is licorice, dark malts, hops. Flavor up front is a little sweet cocao followed by an even bitterness. Nothing comletely overwhelms anything else. This is a finely balanced imperial stout that goes down a little too easy.
Black color with mocha head. Aroma has roasted malt, molasses, milk chocolate and some liquorice. Taste is rich and roasty with chocolate malt and some savory notes. Medium plus body with soft carbonation. A legit american style imperial stout. geolgau (416) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - OCT 16, 2017
Shared bottle, thanks @ciocanelu.
Nice, roasty aroma, quite potent and with no alcohol traces. Lactose, coffee, dark chocolate and a tad smoky. The full body keeps a nice roasty flavor, with a hint of smoke, also with chocolate, hazelnuts, dark fruits and sweet molasses. Finish is bitter and roasty. Nice impy. minihame2 (724) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2017
Oily, black body and a frothy tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, some coffee and a bit of dark chocolate. Taste is sweet, plenty of roasted malts but still not that sharp. There's a bit of lactose feel to it and lots of coffee in the aftertaste. Body is medium, low carbonation, mouthfeel is milky and soft but overall surprisingly light. Very nice, full flavoured stout. andrewje41 (4161) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - AUG 15, 2017
22 oz bottle poured, shared by my brother. Awesome that these Clown Shoes are showing up a couple hundred miles south. Hopefully soon it will be even more convenient, and we can pick it up in Seattle. A jet black pour with a quick fading head. A hot aroma of chocolate malt, roasted character. Flavor is a slightly doughy malt, a ton of rich chocolate, creamy body. A touch smokey as hoped. Solid beer. Solid label. Impressive stuff here.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large brown foamy head with good retention. Aroma of roasted malt with some black chocolate notes is quite enticing. Taste is a mix of dry roasted malt notes with some black chocolate, light molasses and subtle smoke notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation and some warming alcohol notes are noticeable. Solid imperial stout with right amount of complexity.
