Clown Shoes beers are brewed by the Mercury Brewing Company of Ipswich, Massachusetts.
The bottle says it is ale brewed with natural flavors, the natural flavor apparently being orange peel. This 6.0% ABV beer pours jet black in color, with a massive, overflowing head of billowing, thick, tall, sea foam-like, brown foam. The aroma is dark roasted malt, dark chocolate covering fruit, mostly orange. The taste is deep dark roasted malt, coffee, dark cocoa, and orange peel, with a very bitter and dry finish.
