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!

I haven't tanked a Clown Shoes Beer that I regretted.
Every one of 'em is a wonderful beer experience.
So far every one I've guzzled has been high alcohol content but wears that percentage with grace amd charm.
Very Angry Beast-- My reference standard is the Blaecorn Unidragon. This example is a wonderful flavor and stance on the palate --- a beer to be savored rather than guzzled. My detraction is purely that the head was short lived-- could be my glass. I'm getting to be an old fart and my taster isn't what it used to be-- I can't detect the bourbon barrel aging and somehow I think the Blaecorn has a more established flavor and profile-- but I cant put away two bombers in one sitting without deleterious effects so memory serves.
Whatever-- it's a wonderful beer if you like powerful , up-front and center stage behind the mic beers. If it was two percent ABV I could put away a quarter keg in a sitting...

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.
