Served from an ice cold bottle into a glass, such class I know.

Appearance: dark as night, cant see through it. A half inch tan head with an aggressive pour.

Smell: Smell of chocolate and a Smokey smell, might be the vampire stakes.

Taste: Bitter, chocolate and Smokey, like sucking on a chocolate dipped piece of wood.

Mouth feel: Very thick and right on track for a imperial stout.

Overall: I am a fan of clown shoes, but this is just a little strong even for me, I'm going to say its the Smokey aspect. It's worth a bottle to try and clown shoes makes many fine beers.
