eyes...
black as a stallion like from a movie about a black stallion, cocoa head fades quickly but never completely disappears, leaves a nice sheet of foam on a gentle roll around the glass, this befits your typical looking ruskie imp...

nose...
a cave of dark chocolate, chalky dark cocoa powder, molasses, slight roasty tone, some faint dark fruit notes, the cocoa tones are really super strong here - impressive!

taste etc...
much like the dark nose the flavor goes, the after taste is all chalky cocoa - almost reminiscent of baltic style porters, you know that "dry" ish type finish, the beer remains light enough to not be too thick but is certainly not light, sort of borders on medium heft, the sweetness
kind of translates into a licorice flavor up front but in the after taste it mellows into definite black strap type molasses, this ranges just a touch too sweet for me but not total cloy my pie hole shut disaster town mode, as this warms it smooths out some and is not AS sweet but
still not 100% to my liking (the ABV is hidden really well though)

Verdict?
pretty solid, not my personal fave but has some real strong points depending on your taste.

OK, I have now had a Clown Shoes Beer that I REALLY ENJOYED!
No question in the fact that I am a Stout lover, especially Russian Imperial Stouts.
Right from the initial pour, I knew this was going to be a good one. The semi-chocolate head stayed quite a while on top of the jet black stout.
The aroma was full of chocolate, coffee, liquor. and more. The taste was bold, full and very smooth.
The lingering aftertaste just left me wanting another one.
