Very drinkable brown ale with rich coffee flavors. Floral nose works well. Perfect body that fits the heaviness. One finger width caramel colored head. Underrated imo and I love brown ales.

First Beer I've had from Clown Shoes. Yes it made the trip out to Hawaii, so handling may have been a partial factor in this review.

The appearance is on point, a nice dark brown, with a slightly brown frothy head. The lacing was minimal but present.

Aroma was slightly toffee, almond like, dark chocolate.

The taste was slightly bitter upfront, almost too sharp for a brown ale, but when it warmed up the flavors rounded out a little better. The alcohol is definitely present. Sweet, chocolate and slightly nutty but not as creamy as I would have hoped. The beer flirts with a Belgian candy flavor much like a Trippel or even barley wine.

Overall average. It lacked some of the notes I typically associate with a brown ale.

PIcked up some Clown Shoes to commemorate the Patriots' Super Bowl win. Read into it what you want. This is a very tasty brown ale. It pours nicely with a frothy head that leaves no lacing. I didn't get much aroma from it - a bit of burnt sugar and faint hops. However, when this beer hits your taste buds, it comes into its own. There is plenty of chocolate and dark roast coffee, with a lovely hop finish. Carbonation is minimal, which lends an extra level of quaffability to this brew. I'll be seeking out more product from this brewery!

Really carbonated pour, dark brown with a nice creamy head. Mild coffee and chocolate smell. Taste of mild burnt coffee and chocolate with a malt background. Very balanced with a nice hop finish.
