First CLown Shoes beer in quite a while for me. This poured the way I would expect a rich high abv stout to do. Dark and black, but this also had a reddish hue to the beer which made it more interesting.
No question about chocolate on the nose plus some forward bourbon aromas. The first sip was relatively big, again expected for a big beer. Not too carbonated, and thats the way I like my stouts.
Chocolate came out in the taste which made the stout big and full. The after taste started like an afterburner in a jet. Lots of alcohol at the finish. There was a lingering alcohol burn that stayed for a while.

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.
