Very Angry BeastVery Angry Beast
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!

Bottle dated 2013 into a snifter at fridge temp, allowed to warm.

Look: dark brown—light seeps through around the edges, but fades to near black in the center. Essentially no head, fairly light carbonation.

Smell: indistinct bourbon, milk chocolate, brown sugar, a hint of toasted coconut.

Taste: raisins, brown sugar/molasses, some savory smoked meat. A bit on the sweet side, but not overly so, and balanced by the savory (and some mild bitter) flavors. Very very little in the way of alcohol heat or (specific) flavor.

Feel: slick, medium bodied, fairly dry. Not very heavily carbonated, but pretty much ideal for the style.

Overall: a nice offering from Clown Shoes. Fits in the middle ground between something (widely available and passable) like Dragon's Milk and (limited and awesome) like Parabola. Totally respectable.

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.
