This was a big want, and I have been holding off o the $12-13 bomber. Glad to find a $3 12 ounce to share with the wife. Split into 2 stemless wineglasses. Poured a deep, dark, dank brown no head to speak of (expected though). Aromas of roasted coffee, chocolate, deep malty goodness, and a hint of chile (which became more pronounced as the warming progressed). Nice roasted malt on the palate, hint of chocolate... things were a bit muddled together... and some mild chile on the aftertaste (again picking up some steam, and a bit of the promised cinnamon, as the glass warmed up). Slightly watery mouthfeel for a big 9% stout, but a good aftertaste. Nothing exceptional, but it was good. I definitely have more preferred go-to stouts... however, I am glad I tried this if only for the exceptional label on the bottle, and creativity of Clown Shoes.

Very good, but lacking a bit of depth and body.
