look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a bomber bottle into my Stone goblet...
A - Pours black, with 1 finger of brown head that leaves some nice lacing.
S - Smells very chocolatey up front, with sweet notes of vanilla and some warming oaked bourbon notes in the background. Smells amazing.
T/M - Chococlatey waffer up front, warming alcohol as it goes down, and a bourbon whiskey finish with some notes of char and wood. Great flavor, but still a little alcohol forward. Medium/slick mouthfeel, maybe a little bit over carbonated.
O - This is a damn good beer! As it warms, I get more of the mexican spices, and coconut from the bourbon. The vanilla really rounds it out nicely, and the bourbon taste really hangs around in the aftertaste. The only drawback is it is still a little boozy, and slightly thin for me. Besides those 2 thing, this is a killer beer. Great job Clown Shoes

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.
