Notes: How do you create an Extremely Angry Beast? Mix one part bourbon barrel aged Blaecorn Unidragon, one part bourbon barrel aged Undead Party Crasher, one part rum barrel aged Hammer of The Holy, then add a massive dose of incendiary rage.

Very dark brown, almost black brew, with just a hint of clarity at the edge and below the head. Pours a nice, dark brown head with very good retention and flat, thin lacing.

Chocolate stout aroma is released immediately from the pour. Up close, bourbon makes an appearance; I can't tell rum specifically from the booze portion of the aroma. Chocolate, coffee, roasted barley, and the booze all blend together on the noose phenomenally well.

Flavor really matches the aroma well: there's a touch of booze on the tongue, followed by nice, smooth, rich waves of roasted barley, manifest as chocolate, coffee, and a nice, toasty dark bread. Some sweet fruit and banana toward the middle and end from the malt and the yeast. Finally, a firm but gentle kiss from the bourbon on the back-end.

I get rum up front, and bourbon on the back; booze throughout. Creamy, understated sweetness. Oak and vanilla presence is fairly subdued; the booze itself is definitely a much larger presence than the barrel.

A little thin on the feel. Sticky yet slick. Incredibly long finish that builds in heat. Hides the alcohol very well in the mouth, but cannot be avoided on the way down. Minor sting. Definitely a sipper!

Definitely a booze-hound's beer. The base stout is absolutely delicious, but it is thinned out pretty significantly by the barrel-aging. A delicious, big stout, worthy of a try.

Well done stout in my opinion. So many flavors on this one while remaining highly drinkable for 12 percent.

Dark chocolate, espresso, caramel, toffee are all over in this beer. Hints of coconut as well. The best I have had from Clown Shoes. Well done.

Not a huge barrel presence on the nose. Lots of chocolate, a touch of smoke and some roasted notes. Taste mimics the smell. Really well balanced, with maybe the Rum barrel coming out slightly on top. Maybe not as thick as Exorcism but still real good. As it warms up even further, the bourbon barrel is overtaking the Rum by a mile........

Pours a deep dark brown. Sadly, I’m not getting much on the nose – disappointing as one of the best parts of barrel-aged stouts is the rich bourbon nose. The alcohol overwhelms the stout qualities in the flavor profile.

This little number definitely should be locked away in the cellar until it successfully completes some anger management courses.
