Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is jet black, oily thick, with a dark tan, bubbly, foamy head. Aromas of bittersweet baker's chocolate, cream sweetness, bitter roasted coffee, subtle boozy notes, vanilla, crème, and earthy notes. Flavors are heavily roasted, with bittersweet chocolate forward, mocha notes, cream and vanilla highlights, earthy tones, hints of booze, and subtle molasses notes. This beer is heavy and tasty. The body is huge, but dry, which increases the drinkability. Wow! The aftertaste is more of the roasted and bitter notes, with chocolate leading the way. The finish is smooth, velvety, but at the very end, turns dry, which teases you to drink more. I should have bought more than one. Wow!!

$9 Bomber poured into snifter at basement temperature

Appearance - as black as the souls of the people involved in ridiculous law suits regarding beer name trademarks. Thank God they do though, because we are clearly not educated enough to tell the difference. Also, a nice mocha head that leaves a ring throughout.

Aroma - very boozy, chocolate, deep roasted malt, hint of tobacco. Reminds me a little of Founders Imperial

Taste - surprisingly, the alcohol is really not noticeable. Would have lost that bet. Fudge like dark chocolate, smokey/ashy,and a slightly sour sweetness that is noticeable the whole time. Cherries or maybe raisins I would guess.

Feel - pretty creamy and full bodied. I would say a little on the plus side of medium. Nice

Overall - one of the few beers in this style that I think is better colder. The dark fruit aspect is a little too strong for me, but still an excellent beer.

This starts with a thick inky pour and a short lived dark brown head. The nose is rich and presents cocoa powder, lactose-sweetness, marshmallow, whipped cream, caramel malt, light char and molasses. On the tongue it's thick and dry with char, embers, cocoa powder, roasted coffee bean, a strip of marshmallow sweetness(very light), some dark fruit and a finish of charred oats. Clown Shoes has not impressed me but I must say they know how to make a stout!
