Pours completely black with a quarter inch of tan head. Decent retention. Spots of sudsy lacing on the glass. No visible carbonation

Aromas of semisweet dark chocolate, bourbon, oak and vanilla. A hint of smoke. Heavy roasty notes. Toffee and sweetened coffee. More wood notes. Great balance of sweet and earthy.

Flavors burst with dark chocolate, toffee, vanilla. Boozy bourbon with plenty of oak character. Dark roasted coffee, toasted coconut. Finish is dryer with earthy and oak notes shining.

Feels incredibly smooth. Full bodied. A touch of heat from the alcohol which is otherwise covered very well. My favorite aspect of this beer.

Overall another fantastic stout in an awesome lineup of stouts from Clown Shoes. I am beyond impressed. This is better than BCBS in my opinion. I wish I had more...even just another sip. Well done Clown Shoes. Lifetime fan here!
