BOTTLED ON 01/11/13
A fairly aggressive pour only yields a finger of light brown head that falls to a film quickly. The body is nice and opaque black.
The aroma is wonderful. It comes across with big chocolate notes, bourbon, cinnamon, and a sweetness probably from the vanilla that mixes well with the cinnamon and chocolate. Seems like a good dessert beer.
The flavor comes through with some bourbon and warmth but is cut by some of the sweetness. Lots of roast and chocolate flavor. Not quite as awesome as the aroma. The cinnamon and vanilla don’t quite come through as well.
Well carbonated and a little under where I want the body on such a big beer. A little sticky on the lips.
I guess the little tingle I felt lingering on my tongue was the peppers? They are definitely left in the dust on this. A great beer for sure, but I was expecting so much more. Def worth the buy for one bottle.

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.
