Bottle: This bottle from Clown shoes shows a rocking band, and I appreciate a great bottle design especially when I still have eyes to see it, awesome job guys.

Appearance: Black as night, not see through, with a finger and a half head.

Smell: Fresh chocolate like the smell of an Easter morning as a young lad.

Taste: I don't really taste all the craziness listed on the label but its good so fuck it. Chocolate and not very bitter.

Mouth fell: Nice, full bodied.

Overall; I like this beer, its chocolate, its a stout and with an ABV of 10% it will kick that skinny ass of yours.

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!
