22 ounce bottle, bottled on 03/14/14. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch tan head that stayed around a while. There's also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like roasted/burnt malt, coffee, bittersweet chocolate, anise, molasses and piney hops. I think the taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but with the addition of some dark fruit (plums, figs) and milk chocolate. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's a bit creamy and has a moderate amount of carbonation. I've been a fan of the other Clown Shoes stouts I've tried in the past, and this one is enjoyable too. I think it's a good overall brew, I'd pick this one up again. $9.99 a bomber.

22 ounce portion of Clown Shoes beers everyone wins, I love them. That's bad there's a couple beers from them that are okay but they're dark beers tend to kick ass. This is a version of Blaecorn Unidragon with the abv dialed down to 11.5% abv to be legal in the state of Ohio. So they made the Unidragon attacking Cleveland with a Burning River and Skeletons playing from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame wearing Browns helmets...yes they should do a version for every major city...I always get a kick out of their artwork. Pours beautiful opaque darkness in a glass, dark mocha tan head, large bubbles slow bubbled carbonation. Aroma dark roasted malts come off very nicely, a hint of herbal hops/wood aging not sure if there is any but it takes on that soy sauce quality of Umami meatiness that you can just sink your teeth in to. In hind sight it has some dark fruit mainly plump over ripened raisins that are bursting with concentrated fruit based sugars. Flavor dark roasted malt drying qualities boarding on burnt charcoal with a hint of oak wood, dry herbal hop finish, slightly alcoholic burn in the finish. Mouthfeel is full bodied stout, again the kind you can sink your teeth into. Overall a complex imperial stout tasty, strong finish meant for drinking with friends. But I will tell you this, the Undead Party Crasher and Mexican mole' beers are insanely complex.

A - pours a dark black with light colored head and strong lacing.

S - man, this beer smells gross, i dont even know how a russian imperial stout can smell like this. it literally smells like an open air meat market i was at recently in mexico city... chicken that hasnt been refrigerated, beef, ew.

T - thank god this beer doesnt taste like how it smells. strong bitter back end with prune, fig, and cacao flavors on the front, still disappointing

M - thinner than i like my russian imperials and far too think for an 11%er

O - really, do not buy this beer. its terrible smell and overall disappointment led me to write my first beer review on here in years... i seriously dont even understand what is going on and why its so bad. avoid!

Dark black body serves up a thick froth. The aroma is hoppy and bitter for the style but it has hints of dry bitter cocoa and burnt malts. The flavor is creamer with roasted coffee, burnt coffee bean, bitter dry chocolate, malty chocolate balls and smoky embers. The feel is substantial but dry and 11.5 pct ABV is completely lost. This was well worth a $9 try but it is better served warmer.

Not a big Clown Shoes fan but this is really tasty, not a big aroma, very smooth on the taste not getting any bitterness up front, nothing really impressive but I am not disappointed. Picked this up in a trade, it's not available in CA. Worth a shot, there are better imperial stouts out there than this.

Thanks clown shoes for going the extra mile with this release, ABV laws be dammed! Nothing to big about this one flavor wise just a solid RIS.

Poured into a snifter.

3.5 A: Black color. Two fingers of frothy light brown head. Retention is about what you'd expect from a beer this big and a short ring of lacing is left.

3.75 S: Nice aroma on this. Big, hearty chocolate followed by coffee and molasses. Also a good bit of hoppiness. Not enough to piss me off, but still plenty (I'm not a fan of hoppy stouts these days). Layers of caramel, citrusy orange hoppiness with some floral and herbal notes.

3.0 T: Ehh, the taste doesn't have much direction. It's a mesh of chocolate, molasses, coffee, herbal and citrusy hops, caramel, and burnt dark fruits. Fortunately, there's not a lot of bitterness. However, there isn't a lot of sweetness either. It's missing a big, bold flavor to carry the taste.

3.5 M: Lighter heavy body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy and smooth enough.

3.0 D: It's okay, but it doesn't pack enough flavor. Also, hoppy stouts aren't my favorite.

Bomber. Pours a midnight black with a thick frothy dark tan head. Aroma of coffee and roasted notes. Palate is overwhelmed with roasted malts, burnt cocoa, and dark coffee grinds. Alcohol creeps on you.
