This is the best beer I've had in a long time and the best I've had from Clownshoes, by far. Bottled 2/26/14. I love everything about this. Can't wait to share my other bottle.

Had this on fathers day with my dad. The aroma is dark roasted malts, bourbon, vanilla and espresso. This is a beer that I could smell all day long. The taste is excellent as well. This beer went fabulously with barbeque and was an excellent beer to share on father's day. Overall, highly recommended! Cheers!

Bottled 2/25/14. Drank on 5/5/14. $14.99 bomber.

Appearance: Very dark brew. Maybe a small ring of a head but not much. Some legs running down the glass as you drink

Smell: Fantastic. You get dark chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, and spice (cinnamon maybe more).

Feel: nice fool body beer. Not to creamy but not thin. It's somewhere in the middle of BB imperial stout thickness. Not as thick and syrupy as Bourbon county stuff, the Bourbon barrel didn't seem to add to much thickness.

Taste: Dark chocolate hits me first. Then you get some of the spices mixed with the vanilla/bourbon/oak flavors. I personally thought this beer was fantastic. It doesn't have as much spice as Huna (which tasted like a chocolate covered churro) but it adds in complexity from the barrel aging, peppers, coffee, and chocolate. Speaking of peppers, I didn't get any heat from them. I think I got some flavor from the ancho peppers.

Overall: This one was right up my alley. At $15 a bomber it is competitive with other BB bombers and well worth it. I ended up going to my bottle shop and getting the last one after I drank mine. Personally, this is now one of my favorite beers and I love that it doesn't fly off the shelf like KBS.

Really rich flavor. Thick and creamy it's like a melted chocolate shake with bourbon. There's also a pleasant mocha presence. This is extremely well done, the whiskey isn't overpowering yet it definitely shines through adding a very nice finish. Highly recommend this one to the stout lovers.
