Darkest brown pour emerging black. Thin creamy mocha head.
Milk stout aroma. Milk chocolate, chocolate malt, Spanish cocoa hot chocolate, vanilla and pert near perfecto bourbon. Did I mention chocolate?
Nuance of coffee, hot cocoa, baking chocolate bars. Bourbon and peppers meld on the top back of my palate. I thought I would be holding these but damn the freshness is so bright and wanting to be consumed now. Vanilla and malt. Not sure if I get any cinnamon though.
Mouthfeel is silky smooth. Languid and bittersweet. Libations sensations that stagger the mind.
Look up goodness in Websters and you'll find En Fuego listed somewhere. Extremely balanced with the bourbon, chiles, vanilla and chocolate. Really none better in this class with the chilies in mind. Worth every friggin penny. I'm getting more!

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.
