“Holy crap, why am I so buzzed?”
Have you ever asked yourself that? Tonight I’m doing just that. After a great day of work, I came home, had some dinner, enjoyed the company of my beautiful wife, and started enjoying a bottle of Clown Shoes Blaecorn Unidragon. The beer is a Russian Imperial Stout – big, bold and complex, so I was taking my time with it.
BOOM. About 3/4 the way into the bottle I find myself saying “Holy crap, why am I so buzzed?”. 12.5% ABV. That’s why.
It came out of the blue because the beer is so well balanced. For 12.5%, it’s surprisingly drinkable with virtually no booze flavor. The roasted malts are bold, with coffee and dark chocolate in play. I also get the presence of vanilla. What makes the beer a real winner for me is the amount of sweetness mixed in. A very good beer from Clown Shoes!
