Beer Advent calendar - Day 16

Take the road less shoveled to the Two Roads Brewing Company in Stratford, Connecticut. 

 

According to the tasting notes, this is a blustery black ale brewed with dark malts, blackstrap molasses and chock full of citrus and piney American hop character. Roasted malts lend a coffee-like depth of flavor. Somewhere on the road between stouts, black IPAs and porters lies the ROUTE OF ALL EVIL. 

 

And if that wasn't enough, it's got a scary-ass clown on the label.
