look: 5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance:
Dark brown head that’s thick, creamy and completely cover the top of the stout creating a dense layer of lacing to mark your progress. The body is dark and almost completely impenetrable by light, only a few hues of reddish brown escape from the outer edges.
Smell:
Roasted malts, chocolate, molasses, butter, raisins, mild cigar smoke, and much more.
Taste:
Raisins up front, mild grapes and then the malts kick in followed the smokiness and chocolate and coffee flavors.
Mouthfeel:
Medium bodied but warming and the carbonation is bigger than expected.
Overall:
This is another great beer from Clown Shoes, basically its better than sex on the beach and in fact it’s better than all forms of sex unless your actually getting laid…go out and drink this RIS!

pours a thick black color. pour looks awesome with a great brown head. smells of dark fruits a bit of a roasty malts taste. i get some cinnamon too. tastes amazing first thing that hits me is the dark fruits the malts a bit of coffee. the feel is thick and amazing lower viscosity than most brews. overall a 9.7 out of a ten. High alcohol content so this one could get you in trouble.

Body is black with an almost nonexistent tan head. Smells of chocolate, roasted malt, and booze. Tastes of chocolate, roasty malt, fruity esters, smoke, burnt ash, subdued alcohol. Full body with mild carbonation. This is what I look for in a huge imperial stout.

Shiny, boot-black with a dark tan froth that breaks up in chunks.

Smells of bubble gum, milk chocolate, licorice and a hint of fusel alcohol.

A dose of dark chocolate and a touch of rye come in to play upon tasting, evening things out and getting them down and dirty. Subsequent sips reveal notes of black grape, tannin, coffee and cream.

Comparatively speaking not that heavy and also pretty tame in the alcohol department.

Grand sipping on a rainy Saturday.

Man, these dudes know how to make a killer stout. Another high octane gem.

A great looking black pour with hints of chocolate and spices in the scent. The taste follows...a lot going on here...uber smooth and highly dangerous with the ABV so high.

Loves me some Clown Shoes.

3.6/5  rDev -14.7%

Pour is black with a tight brown head. Nose is light chocolate malt, faint roast, fair bit of caramel and toffee and a touch if clean roast coffee. Taste is a bit more roasted, coffee flavors, strong caramel malt and more toffee. Faint malt sweetness, roast lingers a little, light bitterness in finish. Full bodied, creamy, strong carb, semi dry.
