4.91/5  rDev +19.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Notes: Bottled 11/09/12. Serving at 40 degrees in a brandy snifter.

Appearance:
Pitch black body allows zero light to penetrate its walls. Head is a bit disappointing - started with a finger-thick, beige head that disappears quickly but managed to leave a bit of lacing behind. When tilting the glass reveals some nice legs.

Aroma:
An elegant array of smoked wood and toasty malts. Upfront you're greeted with a smoked hickory character that blends beautifully with a rich cocoa character. Bold coffee notes

Taste:
A lot of what was found in the nose can be found in the taste - bursting full of character, this one is! Vibrant cocoa laced with light, tart cherries hits right up front with a bitter bite that is spot on for the style. It's a bit sweet but it's not overkill. Plenty of peat on the finish and in the aftertaste. It's hard to believe this is 10% ABV as their is only the slightest burn on the tail end. Wow.

Mouthfeel:
Full bodied with light carbonation. Stupidly smooth - seriously, how can this be 10%? Semi-sweet finish is laced with rainbows and puppies. Joking aside, this is perfect!

Overall:
If there is such thing as the perfect imperial stout, in my eyes, this is it! This beer truly left me in awe. This bottle made it's way to my cellar from Alabama over a year ago when Clown Shoes wasn't available here in Iowa - oh how things change. Clown Shoes is now readily available here and if this beer is any indication of the quality they're capable of producing, consider me a fan for life. This is art, no question about it. With a few small tweaks to encourage head retention, this would be perfect! Do yourself a favor and grab this if you see it - you will not be disappointed!

Bottled December, 2011

Black. No light shines through. Big milk chocolate head. Tons of lace!

Smells of chocolate, roast, and smoke.

The taste is an amazing combo of sweet milk chocolate, dark chocolate, balancing bitterness, and the hickory smoke shines through.

Thick and creamy.

I have enjoyed all I have tried from Clown Shoes so far. This might be the best one yet!

Pours a deep balck with a thick tan head. Lace is nice.

Smells of chocoalte, licorice, roast, and smoke.

Taste is amazing! Very forward cofee, licorice, dark cocoa, and the smoke is not like bacon, but more like an oakey flavor.

Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy.

Another impressive stout from clown shoes!

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a snifter, bottled on 02/12. This pours a motor oil looking thick, pitch black color with a finger and a half thick mocha colored head which has good retention and leaves a lacing. The smells are of dark chocolate, coco, espresso and roasted malts. The feel is thick and creamy, nice carbonination. The taste is very good, lots of dark chocolate, nice and bitter with a little mouth coating coco. This is an excellent dark chocolate tasting stout, far exceeding expectations.

22oz bottle

A- Pours a thick pitch black color with a thick tan head with great lacing and retention. Looks great in the glass.

S- The aroma is intense dark roasted malts along with some smokiness, bittersweet chocolate and some warmth from the alcohol in the finish. The aroma intensifies with increased complexity as the beer warms in the glass. Smells great, can't wait to try this beast.

T- The taste like the aroma is deliciously dark and roasty. The smoked roasted malts are complimented by some espresso flavors and warmth from the alcohol in the finish.

M- The mouthfeel is medium-full bodied with a good amount of carbonation. The mouthfeel is thick and smooth, just like an imperial stout should be.

O- Overall, I really enjoyed this beer and hope Clown Shoes adds it to their regular lineup or at least makes it a seasonal. Happy Second Anniversary!

Strong, smoky aroma has notes of licorice, quality coffee and molasses plus a hint of semi-sweet chocolate. Pours a deep, warm sable with a thick and fine-bubbled tan head that leaves some generous lacing. Lip-smacking smoky flavor has firm chocolate, coffee, molasses and toffee notes with hints of licorice and caramel. It is somewhat sweet, but not overly so. Smooth texture has above-average body and a decent amount of fizz that leaves a fairly persistent tingle in the mouth and on the lips. I’m a big stout lover, and this is now on my list of faves.

Wow,

This is my third great stout of the night and Vampire Slayer really holds it own.
A: Very black like motor oil as the style dictates.
S: Smells like a good stout but there isn't anything that stands out.
T: Clean with the alcohol totally covered up.
M: My favorite part of this beer, the exact consistency that I look for in a great RIS.
O: I wish this beer was easier to get is western PA. It has exactly what I want in a stout. Guess I'll just have to wait for Stone RIS to get here.

Recommended by Beer Lady at Tully’s in Wells, ME - THANK YOU! This is a very nice stout. Not much of a head on the pour - kind of a smallish khaki/tan head, nice mahogany tints. Expectation was for a whallop of flavor, but found it more subtle and with a lot going on. Cocoa, some smokiness,, a bit of vanilla hiding in there, just enough hops to keep the flavor interesting. Nice malts, good "undertones" of the coffee/roast flavors. Not as "thick" on the tongue as other imperials, but very nice. Minimal aftertaste. Definitely high on the list of faves. No doubt about the 10% ABV...it isn't shy. A lot of complexity and subtle flavors going on, yet it isn't "work" to drink. Good effort from CS!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a large brandy snifter. Pours black with a finger-length tan head. There are some visible bubbles along the underside of the head and along the side of the glass. Some lacing is left on the side of the glass as the head dissipates. There are aromas of dark roasted malt, dark fruits, chocolate, coffee, and some of that 10% alcohol comes up to the nose. I get some of that smoke as well from the smoked malt. The flavors are very complex in this stout. There's nice dark roasted malt flavor with creamy chocolate, black coffee, dates, smoked malt, and some alcohol. It's a wonderfully balanced flavor. The body is full with a smooth and creamy mouthfeel. The carbonation is moderate. This is a very easy beer to drink despite the alcohol presence. This is an excellent beer.

4.65/5  rDev +13.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 22 oz. bomber.

The appearance on this beer is a dark brown, almost black color. The head is a dark taupe or medium brown that dissipated quickly and left a slightly oil-like shimmering lace.

The aroma is all things roasted. Beautiful dark chocolates and coffee. There is also a nice level of smoke in the nose that is not too dominant (I tend to dislike super smoky things like Rauchbier). There are also some lighter aromas like citrus and candied fruits of some kind.

The taste resonates the aroma perfectly. The same dark chocolate comes through along with beautiful bitter espresso notes. And best of all...BACON!

The mouthfeel, to me, is the most shocking part of this beer. I know its 10% alcohol, but this beer is amazingly well balanced. There is not too much bitterness either. It's really mouth-coating (probably from the alcohol) but incredibly smooth. There is also a really cool tannin-like texture to it that probably stems from the wood-ageing. I like the complexity in this beer a lot!

Overall, I think it rocks. I am generally skeptic when trying such big and monstrous beers, but this one really shocked and impressed me. I may be more willing to try and big ones more often now.

Another one from a few nights ago. Going off of some notes I took on BeerCitizen (when will there be a bA app?)

APPEARANCE: All RIS are the same. Black, thick, oily with a slim head. It looks like something that would be drank by a character in a film about slaying vampires (maybe the hero would be drinking this while decimating all the characters of Twilight?)

AROMA: Great, sweet aroma on this. Dark malts, lots of chocolate (milk and baker's chocolate). The alcohol is prominent and there's also some subdued smoke, coming from the malts smoked with hickory, ash, and "vampire killing stakes". I think the smoke is a good addition here.

TASTE: As to be expected with the style, there are sweet malts, dark/milk/baker's chocolate, and some coffee. The smoke is nice - not overbearing, but noticeable. It lingers in the shadows of my palate. Also some low alpha hops are in there among it all. I'm not sure what Holy Water tastes like, but I'll assume it's in there.

MOUTHFEEL: Big bodied and heavy in the mouth. The alcohol feels strong in this one, but it's not too hot. It leaves a nice warming sensation in the throat.

OVERALL: A fantastic Russian Imperial Stout. I've had so many bourbon barrel-aged stouts lately I almost forgot what the regulars tasted like. Solid example of the style, it hits all the right notes, and the subtle addition of smoke adds some depth.

92/100

Pours a bible black heavy libation cascaded into the glass.
Slight let-down short lived head-- laced the glass, collapsed leaving a ring at the perimeter and that's about it.
Nose is of toasted malt, a hale of hops, with what I might call sweetness.

But the flavor-- ah the flavor! But it's not just the flavor it's how this beer behaves on the palate.. Perhaps one of the finest RIS's I've sampled. Everything in perfect proportion-- hops, malt, alcohol, density, effervescence, finish.

Mouthfeel- is an alive blanket of licorice, raisins, hops, malt, toasted malt and a finish that glides and soars. Ok I'm under the influence of the 10% ABV!

Overall-- I rarely or never award a 5.0!

If you're ready for an RIS, this is one to try-- walk a mile for it!

A- Pitch black. Poured a nice, creamy 1 finger head. Awesome lacing, trailing, and legs.

S- Dark fruits: plum and dark cherry. Caramel, toffee, coffee, dark chocolate, booze and some smoke. Smell's like there's some oatmeal in there, too. Just a touch of band-aid, but in a good way.

T- Plums, cherry, smoke, and caramel, followed by decadent bittersweet dark chocolate, toffee, and a nice balance of booze. Nice smokey aftertaste.

M- Thickish, creamy, slightly syrupy. Taste melds with the mouthfeel beautifully! Drying and oily. Smokiness lingers a bit.

O- This was an awesome beer! I usually drink half of a bomber before sitting down to review, but this time, I only had about a cup left before it even crossed my mind. I loved how the mouthfeel complimented the flavors. I can't really explain how it did, but they went together wonderfully to me! I would drink this again in a heartbeat!

22 oz bomber pours black with no highlighting. Awesome dense head and lacing is excellent. Damn near perfect looking brew.

Nose is dark, un-sweetened chocolate with a pretty hefty load of citrusy hops. Not generic smelling per say, but certainly not unique.

Ooooh...wow. For a 10%'er, this is freaking fantastic! Very smooth and chocolaty with very little bite or astringency. Very nice Clown Shoes. I liked the Unidragon well enough to buy a couple for the cellar, and was skeptical of this one at first trying to separate itself...but hot damn! This one is tasty and smooth, the ABV is absolutely nowhere to be seen (though I am sure I will feel it soon). Hops still play a factor on the flavor and finish, which adds a nice dimension to it. Yeast is clean and the sweetness is just about perfect. Mouthfeel is nice and creamy with just enough carbonation. It reminds of a fresh (and good batch) of Buried Hatchet with a little bump in alcohol. Just so smooth and tasty. I have not been this surprised by a beer in quite some time. Dont think this would age well though, it is not overly complex. I'll be buying a few more of these for sure, although I would buy alot more if these bastards would put it in six or four-packs at a decent price.

Appears jet black, as expected. The 22 oz bottle was split/shared into 2 big snifters. It was poured slowly to get even split so it was hard to get a read on the head. Snifters were almost too big. But what little head I got was tan in color.

Aroma is big on vanilla and hickory smoke, with some espresso and faint baker's chocolate.

I tasted big roasted, charred grains up front with a touch of bitterness and booze. This was followed by notes of hickory, oak, peet moss, and a touch of brown sugar in the finish once the beer came to room temperature.

Mouthfeel was moderate in weight. Not too syrupy - actually a tad on the dry side.

I really liked this brew. The sweetness is refined and subtle. It mixes with the woodsy notes VERY well. I just bought the one bottle a few months ago, and now I wish i bought a bunch :(

Poured into a large pint glass. Pours rich black with just enough head. Looks like a large stout should. On smell I get chocolate, caramel, and coffee - very nice.

On first sip it is really good. I still get the chocolate and coffee. It is nicely balanced and mouthfeel is lighter than you would expect. There are several light flavors in there: vanilla, hint of booze, and very smooth.

Starting to really like clown shoes - several of there latest samplings have been great.

poured from a 22oz bomber into a st. feuillien goblet.

a: pitch black in color (completely opaque) with a fluffy coca power colored head that quickly subsides into a thin lacing around the glass.

s: lots of roasted malt and smoke. notes of burnt biscuit and hickory. interesting.

t: lots of sweet chocolate syrup-like malt flavor quickly followed by wave after way of smokey roasted malt goodness. nice and complex. this tends to lean towards the sweet and smokey side. low bitterness and the alcohol is very well hidden. i love it.

s: great mouthfeel.

i did not expect to enjoy this beer as much as i did. one of the most unique and memorable stouts i've had in a while. recommended.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint.

A – Black as black can be with a nice two-finger light brown head of sea foam consistency. Lacing coats every inch of the glass.

S – Moderately strong aroma of chocolate, burnt coffee, and a bit of wood. Smells inviting.

T – Chocolate, roasted malt, and dark fruit. Also strong overtones of graham cracker, smoke, and marsh mellow. Very rich. Kind of like drinking a campfire S’more. Sweet, but nicely balanced with some bitter esters from the charred grains. Hint of anise, but JUST a hint. Sweet milk chocolate aftertaste lingers. 10% abv CRAZY hidden. Delicious. Dangerous.

M – It is here where this beer truly is a marvel, as it is full bodied, but has a very creamy, smooth feel which keeps it from being overbearing or syrupy. All this is managed with very low carbonation (although maybe a little more than other 10% abv Imperial Stouts) Too bad this category doesn’t go to “six”.

O – If you like Imperial Stouts on the sweet side with a lot of chocolate character, pick this up immediately! I can’t get over how much this actually tastes like a S’more. Obviously couldn’t drink more than one, but that’s like saying you couldn’t eat more than one chocolate cake; it’s that rich. Overall, an exceptional effort. This will now be my dessert beer of choice. Kudos to Clown Shoes.

22 oz bottle poured into a snifter.
10% ABV, Bottled on 10/18/12 printed on shoulder.

A - Despite the higher level of alcohol within this beer, a tall mocha head rises up and remains coating the sinister-looking black beer for quite some time. Dots of lace remain clutching the glass while legs of alcohol dribble around them.

S - Lush and dark, the aroma of Vampire Slayer starts with smooth milk chocolate and gooey melted caramel before opening up to light smoke notes which waft out ever so slowly. Sticky molasses and dark chocolate-covered espresso bean follow through creating a deep and intense aroma within Vampire Slayer.

T - Thick and rich like the aroma foreshadowed, this beer's ash-y smoke notes which underscore the bold roasted malt flavor elevate the smoothness of the milk chocolate presence and lingering flavor of a good old cup 'o joe.

M - Vampire Slayer's silky and seductive entry leads to a deep, dense feel that's thick and viscous in presence while not too sweet, nor bitter on the finish. It's balanced wonderfully, lingering with a trail of faint smokiness.

O - Congratulations on the excellent Second Anniversary, Clown Shoes. This beer is a dark and voluptuous treat with deep malt character and chocolatey nuances for a thoughtful, involved drinking experience that will pair well with most any dessert.

Bottled July 2012:

Into a nonic:

A: pitch black colored body that leaves a three finger tan foamy head that gently dies into a film over the top of the body. No carbonation is seen rising due to the pitch black body and minimal lacing is left behind.

S: heavy roasted malt, cocoa and coffee combined close to perfect. No alcohol is smelled even as the beer warms.

T: the same with more of a well-liked smokiness/roastiness added

M: medium with nothing harsh on the tongue. I would say this is mostly drinkable. I thought it would be more of a sipper due to the high ABV, no worries because its not

O: this is a great double stout that I would come back to, as the alcohol is well hidden throughout, but perhaps I could've waited on this a bit longer.

Poured into a chalice a very nice black color, nice carbonation, with a nice little fizzy/creamy light tan head, with some sticky lacing left behind. The nose is very nice, malty, with some very nice chocolate/toffee notes, nice vanilla scent, roasty, nutty. The taste is exceptional, malty, very nice vanilla note, chocolaty, toffy, with some coffee notes. Medium body, kinda chewy, ABV hidden very well. Love these Clown Shoes brews, thanks Ben.

Served in an Olde Hickory shaped glass.

2nd Anniversary Ale!

A: Black as night and with a 1/8 finger head. It looked totally dangerous!

S: Fresh coffee grounds for sure, along with bittersweet chocolate. It has a bit of an ash-like quality that I personally thought was awesome.

T: A bit sweet and dark fruit, tempered by bittersweet cocoa. The balance was astounding here: Malt, bitter elements, and a tinge of hops totally made this one great for me!

M: A tinge of bitterness at the end, but overall the chocolate compound was fresh, intense, and quite good! The lacing was mild overall.

O: I actually dug this one more that their RIS and I think it will be much more acceptable to people.
