    Pours close to jet black except for a mahogany tinge at the bottle of the glass when held to the light,a deep thinner beige head atop.bourbon really jumps out at ya in the nose along with some dark fruit,the chipotle gives off some spice and smoke.Vanilla tinged oak starts out the flavor profile ,the bourbon is big,dark fruit and sweet but not spicy anchos are there,the chipotles come in late in the finish hitting the back of the throat that lingers.This is a sipper no doubt but all the flavors come together making for a very interesting beer.

    I agree with ggrumet here...wishing for more barrel influence in this one. I was expecting this to be the runaway as my favorite clown shoes beer, as I love the combo of ingredients and the barrels, but everything (while very nice) was just so...restrained. Smaller of body than expected, but smooth. Alchol comes on the nose and the aftertaste a little. Bitter cocoa, very light spices, roast, and light bourbon and vanilla. Very good, coulda been better.

    A dark brown nearly black colored beer. A small, one finger beige colored foamy head rises briefly above. Not much hang time on the head. Settles into a thin ringlet. Profile (lesser in the nose) is strong bitter cocoa and bourbon presence. Light bodied and slick.

    Smoky aroma has roast malt, caramel and chocolate notes, with an overtone of bourbon - obviously from them Wild Turkey barrels. Comes out of the bottle a deep coffee brown that lets in a little daylight at the bottom and has a fairly thick light tan head. Luscious flavor has roast malt, coffee, chocolate, caramel and bourbon notes - and watch out for that alcohol kick, it’ll bowl you over like a luchador! Thick, smooth texture has a lively fizz and leaves a syrupy finish with a strong bourbon bite.

    I really like Clown Shoes chocolate sombrero so I was especially excited to find this pumped up version with more peppers and a short rest in bourbon barrels. Deep black, inky pour with a walnut like head. Very spicy on the nose with lots of spicy and roasted peppers. This is complex - almost too much so. Loads of spicy peppers laod up my palate from start to finish. The smoke from the chipotle is readily aapparant and really works well with the bakers chocolate and cinnamon. The barrel element lends a nice vanilla note, but it is rather lost in the massive melding of flavors. It's nice and worth trying, particuarly for fans of chocolate/chili stouts. I wish the barrel shined a bit more.
