After Blaecorn Unidragon and Chocolate Sombrero which were both fantastic stouts, my expectations for my next dark beer from Clown Shoes was high, and I was not disappointed. Pours deep and dark, with some faint notes of khaki in the light. Very little head that dissipates quickly leaving behind the slick, black oily goodness. Smell is sweet molasses, some ginger and chocolate. Smell could be a little more vivacious if I'm nitpicking. You can definitely taste some Indian influences in the taste: faint curry and coconut on top of the more traditional chocolates and coffees. On the sweet side, but absolutely no booze comes through. Feel is very smooth and creamy, giving it a coconut-milk like texture that adds to the Indian / curry notes. Overall, very good Imperial Stout with some interesting herbal and spice notes.
