Served on tap at Mackenzie's. Pours flat black with a thin turkish coffee head. The smell is Mezmerizing - rich, luxurious chocolate torte with warm caramel and oaky bourbon. The flavor is disproportionately thick in comparison to the thin body - a baseball-bat-to-the-face of bitter dark chocolate gives way to buttery bourbon burn, with slight notes of ancho chilies and cappucino mud. It is very sweet, but masked well by the bitter pinch of the cacao and coffee grounds. The aftertaste is neutral, but it leaves an odd sticky cottonmouth feel on the tongue. Several minutes in, the tingly heat of the chilies catches up, which is quite nice.
Overall, this is very much a desert beer dominated by aroma and flavor. I wish i'd paired it with food to negate the odd mouthfeel.
Serving type: on-tap

4.13/5 rDev -0.5%

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.
