Clown Shoes: Genghis Pecan (USA: Porter: 7% ABV)
Visual: Black. Thin brown dust of a head. On later pours a much larger brown froth.
Nose: Roasted nuts. Soft sweet nuts. Charring. Caramelized sugar.
Body: Peanut. Bitter chocolate. Brown sugar. Soft nuttiness mixes with a slightly acrid nuttiness. Slightly chalky. Slight milky coffee.
Finish: Charring. Bitter chocolate. Walnut. Bitter coffee. Chalky.
