4.44/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pour pretty thick and black in color with a thin half finger head that retains nicely.

Smell is nice and bold. Lots of rich chocolate malt comes first alongside sweet vanilla and great mild bourbon soaked rasin aroma. Spices and chilies come in near the end and work well with the raisin chocolate aromas.

Taste follows the nose with equal amounts of complexity. Rich chocolate malt hits the palate first and persist throughout the entirety. Some booze soaked raisins, chilie, spices and a mild vanilla sweetness follow but are cut quickly by a bourbon presence. More chocolate malt on the finish along with faint hints of heat form The peppers

Mouthfeel is great. Moderately thick body is cut with medium carbonation. Sweetness and creamy feel is balanced with a medium amounts of carbonation, alcohol and a nice numbing heat in the finish.

4.13/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

22 oz. bottle poured into a Founders snifter.

Appearance: Pours black with a thin beige head. Not much head retention.

Smell: There is a lot going on here. Bourbon, chiles, vanilla, milk chocolate. An interesting dark fruit presence (primarily back cherry) comes into the picture and takes over a bit before being covered up by more chocolate and vanilla.

Taste: Vanilla and milk chocolate up front with some more of that dark fruit. Cinnamon and a bit of chile pepper (not really any heat, but a nice smoky chipotle flavor). Bourbon is very subtle in the flavor profile. I could go for more bourbon and less dark fruit, but overall this is a great flavor profile - complex and delicious.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, medium carbonation.Would prefer a little less carbonation in this one.

Overall: Great showing from Clown Shoes. There is a lot going on in this beer and it comes together quite well.
