Notes: We decided to bring back Very Angry Beast, a classic from the Irate Beast series. The creature became so agitated, however, he busted out from the old label right into the parking lot of our brewery. Man, we'd better corral this bad boy, or the damages are gonna be tough for the insurance company to cover! The beer? It's a blend of Undead Party Crasher and Blaecorn Unidragon, 100% Bourbon Barrel aged and also, 100% Angry!

From the 22 oz bottle in a snifter via Growler Stop in a snifter. This
very nice imperial pours a rugged blackish brown with a nice head of
light tan foam that subsides to a thick ring, this light wispy pool, and
showcases some light sudsy lacing. Nose of bourbon, dark chocolate
fudge, subtle vanilla, and hints of oak and char....very muted for the
Clown folk. Flavors hit the mark for the wearers of the big funny
shoes. Dark fudge and touches of dark coffee mix and dance about a
boozy bourbon barrel with moderate amounts of vanilla and light char
notes showing flavors of cherry and peppery alcohol with touches of
anise that is mulled in black strap molasses. Nice mouth feel; medium
full body which drinks light for a stout of such heft, moderately coating,
warming, smooth, and with low carbonation that finishes hot and lightly
dry with a sweet char laden edge.

Overall, a SOLID brew worthy of the Clown folks.

Improves with warmth as does the nose. Solid!

Along with Vampire Slayer, the original Angry Beast was one of the beers that first turned me on to Clown Shoes. I still have a bottle of the first Very Angry Beast release that I look forward to trying soon side-by-side with the 2018 batch, but for now, this rating is for the 2018 revival.
