Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: dbrelsfo on 12-05-2013

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

This is a really big beer and we wanted to put it in small bottles, but the two bozos were so fat they couldn’t fit on the label. Enjoy this rich, ridiculous and screwball-ish Imperial Stout with hints of: molasses, lactose, chocolate, almond, hazelnut, vanilla bean, cinnamon, oak spiral, chili, marshmallow, muscovado sugar, chesnut and coffee. Made for Bozos.

A - Oily black with toasted marshmallow bubbles of head. Dissipates swiftly.

S - Coffee, rusted iron and soy sauce.

T - Coffee again. Shades of molasses and burnt toffee but it isn't sweet by any means. No smoke, peat or earth. Hides the heat well but does not deliver on the cinnamon, chilli, vanilla or the multitude of other more unusual flavours mentioned on the label. Not very chocolatey although there is a slight dark chocolate element as it warms.

M - Thick, but not as smooth as it could have been; possibly due to the high abv. Warming but not at all hot. Carbonation is bang on. Somehow a little vinous. I'd like it to be a little creamier.

O - Enjoyable. Definitely gives you that warm fuzzy feeling. I'd have thought this clocked in at 14%, so kudos for that, but it fails to deliver on the complexity, depth or variety of flavours which would take it to the next level. Very coffee forward. A little like Victory at Sea but fluffier, comparatively sluggish and without the wondrous vanilla bean to temper the coffee.

22oz (!) bottle poured into big snifter; one of the darkest beers I've ever seen. Minimal dark brown head that fades quickly into a solid ring of foam.
Smells...wow. Espresso, and GOOD espresso too. The kind that has some savory qualities to it. Also detect some chili pepper, spice, molasses, and oak.
Taste is HUGE; espresso, dark chocolate, molasses, oak, chili, vanilla spice, dark malt. Really coats your whole mouth, not much booze present which is a bit terrifying considering I'm working with 22oz of 17+% beer.
Mouthfeel is huge but not cloying; carbonation staves that off nicely.
Overall, this is an awesome huge stout to end all huge stouts. Up there with WWS and DORIS. Damn good stuff.

Large shared bottle of Bozo Beer Brewed at Westbrook Brewing (SC).

Dark opaque body.
Very rich.
Various flavors and aromas don't come together nicely and, worse yet, it is too vegetative.
Compared poorly to other imperial stouts at the same tasting session, including Eclipse.

Poured into a tulip- pours an extremely viscous black oil color with almost no head and only a few spots of retention.

Smell is not as boozy as I would expect; certainly a lot of roasted malt and a fair bit of coffee, maybe some vanilla. It definitely smells like a heavy hitter though if not in direct booziness.

Hides it's alcohol very well. Lots of roasted malt, coffee, some molasses,a little vanilla, and something a little sweet towards the end. Not sure if the list on the side of the bottle is things they put in it or things they taste and what they put in is a mystery.

Mouthfeel is nice- obviously full bodied with a little carbonation; definitely enough to cut through all the malt. I like this beer- get it if the big bad stout is your kinda thing and if not don't because it's serious.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Very thick and inky black. Medium khaki head and a medium collar.

Smell - Coffee, brown sugar. Sweet and kinda nutty. A little boozy, but nice.

Taste - Intense. Coffee. Roasted malts. A little fruity. That's probably booze. It gets really intensely roasty and extremely bitter.

Mouthfeel - Very strong and bitter. Boozy.

Overall - Well, it smells really nice, but it doesn't quite hold up in the flavor. Way too big and bitter.

Served from bottle in to a Green Man snifter. Poured pitch black with a half finger brown head that remained throughout the glass. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, roasted malt, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, coffee, caramel, and dark fruit. The flavor was of sweet malt, coffee, dark fruit, caramel, roasted malt, alcohol, milk chocolate, and alcohol (yes I said it twice). It had a heavy feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. There was really a lot going on in this one. On the nose this was quite delightful. Tons of chocolate and toasty goodness going on. The flavor however as you would expect with the high abv would bring the booze. And boy did it ever... This did mellow out as the beer warmed but it never really took the backseat to allow other notes to shine. I could definitely find myself getting wasted on this one quite easy. Definitely worth your time to try this one if you like big boozy stouts!

Millions of flavors, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, smoke, and a hint of chile heat. Booze is hidden considering its 17.2
