Clown Shoes Bluegrass Billionaire

Clown Shoes Beer comes from the Mercury Brewing Company of Ipswich, Massachusetts. This is a 12.5% ABV English-style barleywine aged in bourbon barrels.

The beer pours a hazy dark brown. There is a relatively short head of off-white to very light tan head. The aroma is deep malt, roasted, caramel, toffee, dark fruits, and bourbon. The taste follows the aromas, hitting the same notes. The beer drinks easy, mostly smooth, with a bit of a bite of carbonation and alcohol at the end. The big malts actually mask the high ABV quite well, but it is warming. This is a straightforward and enjoyable BA barleywine.
