COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In a world full of uncertainty, hardship, and people trying to hold us back, do we need the undead and trademark attorneys too? Clown Shoes says, "No, die, monsters, die!" Forces of darkness brought about a change in the name of this beer, which was released to celebrate our second anniversary, but it still sports signature dark malts, holy water, and malt smoked locally with hickory and ash.

MadRobin (1828) - Silver Spring, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Poured from 22 oz. bottle. Opaque, brown-black with a 3-finger light brown head and good lacing. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, figs, raisins and a rotting forest log. Taste of chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, coffee, alcohol, dark fruit and molasses. Very rich dessert-like flavor. Full body and low carbonization with rich mouthfeel. A very rich and full imperial stout that is like a rich mocha dessert. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark in color with a small tan head. Roasted malt, berries and smoke aroma. Heavy, thick, malt, light smoke and medium bitterness, still donít hide the ABV. Good beer.

Brentv (304) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 10, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2014 Wow. From a bomber, pours black as can be with a big foamy beige head and huge amounts of lacing. Aroma is a roasted smoky chocolate. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, moderate (perfect) sweetness, some bitterness in behind. Balanced. Perfectly balanced. Thick chewy mouthfeel. Alcohol hidden well in the flavor, but I feel it. This is a huge beer. I really wish I could get this in Oregon, but Iím glad to find it when I travel. Awesome beer. I love this one.

Aroma- Dark fruits: plum and dark cherry. Caramel, toffee, coffee, dark chocolate, booze and some smoke. Smellís like thereís some oatmeal in there, too. Just a touch of band-aid, but in a good way. Taste- Plums, cherry, smoke, and caramel, followed by decadent bittersweet dark chocolate, toffee, and a nice balance of booze. Nice smokey aftertaste. Palate- Thickish, creamy, slightly syrupy. Taste melds with the mouthfeel beautifully! Drying and oily. Smokiness lingers a bit. Overall- I usually drink half of a bomber before sitting down to review, but this time, I only had about a cup left before it even crossed my mind. I loved how the mouthfeel complimented the flavors. I canít really explain how it did, but they went together wonderfully to me!

Tstamba (277) - Maryland, USA - MAY 10, 2014
From a bomber to a pint. Pours viscous opaque black with frothy tan head. Nice roasted dark coffee, cocoa, and smokiness on the nose. Similar flavor profile with warm boozy finish... A nice one to sip on a cool evening by the fire. Plus the holy water wards off any undead lurking in the shadows... ;-p.
