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.

Bottled, sampled at The Cotteridge Convention, many thanks to Beersiveknown for this one. Black with tan head. There is a smoked, spicy nose to this which follows into the beer, dark bitter liquorice, bitumen then a lacing of fruitiness. Really full and very decent. Liked it.

Bottle shared at the Cotteridge Convention 2014. Pours oily dark brown with a creamy tan head. The nose holds sugary dark malts, cocoa. Medium to big sweet flavor with rich dark chocolate, moderate roasted malts, some earthy bitterness. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly warming finish with mellow alcohol notes, more dark chocolate, dark fruits. Hefty and quite tasty.

Chocolate, smoky, woody, with a hint of hop spice. Thick and chewy. This would be excellent barrel aged.

Fin (8107) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle at Cotteridge Tasting, Saturday 24th January 2015 Pours black with a beige head, some bonfire toffee. This is quite a pokey beer a little harsh on the end/finish, has it got a little chilli in it? Roasty and bitter, this is very nice, pleasant warmth throughout, some dark chocolate, lovely.
