Clown Shoes Pecan Pie Porter

Clown Shoes Pecan Pie Porter

This weekend was a super lazy one here. Both Saturday and Sunday we sat on the couch and watched TV and goofed off on our cell phones and/or laptops. That may sound boring, but to me, after a long week of work, it was magic. My only regret: I should have taken a nap at some point. Today I watched football from 1:00 – 7:30pm and it was glorious. Well, all except the part where I was bounced out of my survivor league, courtesy the Cleveland Browns coughing up an awful loss to the worst team in the NFL right now – the Jacksonville Jaguars. #fail.

This evening I’m enjoying my last few hours of weekend with a bottle of Clown Shoes Pecan Pie Porter. I bought the beer purely for the novelty factor, and I have to say I’m disappointed in lack of novelty flavor. That is, while the beer has a sweet and nutty aspect, I wouldn’t equate it to pecan pie. It’s all good though, because it’s still a decent beer. Although, perhaps too sweet for my taste when it comes to American porters. It’s a bit syrupy, which could have to do with the relatively high ABV of 8%. Seems like it should be categorized as an imperial porter, but what do I know?

All in all, it’s just an OK beer.
