Made this beer my 2,000th review! Paid $8.99 for the single a very fair price for a chai flavored RIS.
A - Man these guys make a great looking RIS! Deep dark blackness very thick looking RIS with a 1/2 inch mocha head that sticks around for a bit. Great lacing.
S - Smells mostly of ginger and cinnamon very Christmas like! Mild roasts and bitter chocolate smells. Hopefully its more vanilla based in the taste.
T - I can taste the cardamom tea like flavors. Not as sweet as I expected but it does have a vanilla extract taste. Ginger root and cinnamon overdose kind of buries any roast or chocolate taste one would expect is a RIS. Very unique Imperial Stout.
M - A bit thinner than I expected but most Clown Shoes Imperial stouts are like that. Medium bodied and kind of chewy.
Overall I can dig the originality of this beer. They accomplished what they put out to do make a Christmas spice like RIS. Worth picking up!
