BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Clown Shoes
Massachusetts, United States
clownshoesbeer.com

Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Got them fancy clothes. Got that big car, suicide doors, 8 track stereo, color TV's. Livin' the American dream, now you've got a brew as smooth as chorus from Al Green. Brash Brewing and Clown Shoes each made a brown ale at Mercury, then blended them. You don't have to have solid gold pants to enjoy... but it helps.

Bottled 5/2012. Dark chocolate malt, earthy, toffee and a bit of dark fruit. Some oxidation. Medium, dry finish. Not much sweetness to this. Can hardly taste the alcohol but it's warming my chest. Not bad, but probably should have drank this sooner.

Tastes more like a stout than a brown. Good but not great.

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a Duvel glass. Purchased as Gasbarros for $1!

A- Pours a muddy brown opaque body with an off white fluffy head that reduces slowly and leaves thick lacing.

S- Subtle notes on the nose.. nutty, grainy, smokey, caramel.

T- Very nutty with lots of toffee, burnt sugar, caramel, and sweet malt. The finish is roasty. Not
bad, not bad at all.

M- Medium body, medium carbonation. About where it needs to be.

I liked this more than expected, and for the price it was a steal.

Poured a brown body with two finger head on top of an aroma that is a mix of roasted and sweet caramel and chocolate notes, even some toffee. Medium bodied and sticky, even a little chewy, goes down easy and smooth. The booze makes itself known but not in an aggressive manner and the beer is mostly a good balance of sweet and roasted malts. A simple but very enjoyable brown ale.
