I'm not going to go into a real deep in-depth review, but if you see this in the store this is a must try. I will warn you though, I've decided in one night to do 4 because they were so good and it was cold in Central Mass.... don't be me and go that hard, Savor it.

pours a dark brown slick with almost no head. nose; dark chocolate, oak, vanilla, cocoa, light tobacco, & light brown cola. taste; follows the nose exactly, with some raisin/plum character & mellow hops. medium carbonation & slighlty heavy mouthfeel. the high abv is expertly subdued. i'm pretty sure this is barrel-aged chocolate sombrero; the aging has mellowed the pepper notes, but it is still a great stout.

Pours a dark black with little to no head and no lacing. Aroma is a dark chocolate bar soaked in bourbon with hints of vanilla. Taste is very much the same with slightly more spice - but not really "hot" spicy which is a tad bit disappointing. Overall, this is another home run for Clown Shoes. (Could had been a grand slam had the chile peppers come through.)
