My first experience with a Clown Shoes product and it was definitely a good one. This ale pours a hearty cola color with a thick tan head which lasts longer than most black ipas. There is substantial lacing and a nice mouth coating chewiness to this ale. The aroma is malty sweet and hoppy bitter with a blend of floral citrus notes and a deep smoky coffee smell. The flavor follows suit. A perfect blend of the hoppy bitterness of an ipa and the sweet smoky maltiness of a porter. This is everything I want and expect from a black ipa. May have even surpassed sublimely self righteous as my new favorite black ipa. Can't wait to try the bottle of Hoppy Feet 1.5 that I picked up at the same time.

12 oz bottle, no date

pours almost black, just a bit of brown around the edges of the glass. thin white head that fades. more roast in the aroma than expected, with with some earthy hops. taste is fairly bitter, and quite acidic. very dry aftertaste. medium body and carbonation level.

after having the hoppy feet 1.5 and thinking it was great, I was very disapointed in this beer. the flavors just don't jive together very well.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Dark brown color, thick lacy head.
Aroma: Chocolate hoppy aroma.
Flavor: Dark chocolate flavor, very hoppy body and bitter finish. This is a full bodied brew with slightly acidic carbonation.
Overall: This beer's taste like a dark ale/stout-hybrid. It’s true to its name; it is bitterly hoppy.
