Clown Shoes Chocolate Sombrero

Clown Shoes Chocolate SombreroIt’s only been a few months that Massachusetts based Clown Shoes has been available in Ohio, so I’m excited to try something new. with their Chocolate Sombrero, a┬áMexican inspired stout.

Color is as you’d expect, dark brown with maybe a hint of ruby around the edges. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, and a hint of chile. Light and smooth mouthfeel. Chocolate really comes through, followed by vanilla. There is a hint of heat, but not much. Bit of char in there, too.

I like this quite a bit. Nice texture, good flavor, good balance. Wouldn’t mind a bit more chile heat. Not a trace of heat from the 9% ABV!

Grade: B
