Inspiration guides us here at Clown Shoes. Setting the scene: a vision of a Japanese Maple tree weathering a snowstorm presents itself while frolicking Manchurian Cranes in clown shoes stumble below. Weird? Yes! We took our Undead Party Crasher American Imperial Stout and aged it in Bourbon barrels that previously aged premium maple syrup. The result is a full-bodied stout that is flush with maple sweetness which balances a full body and intense dark malt flavors.
