Poured into a large snifter glass. Pours dark brown to black with a thick tan head that recedes slowly, leaving some lacing on the side of the glass. Bourbon and vanilla hit the nose up front with chocolate, roasted malt, and chile peppers. The flavors follow the nose. There is some sweetness there and the alcohol can be tasted here. The flavor notes blend pretty well together. The chile peppers don't get hot in this beer because they blend so well with the malt backbone of this beer along with the chocolate and vanilla notes. It's actually quite tasty. The body is medium to full with moderate carbonation. The aftertaste is is very pleasant. This beer is pretty easy drinking despite the 11% ABV. This is an excellent beer.

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.
