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.

Aroma is dominated by chocolate. Deep black color with thin foam. Cocoa and coffee overtones. Some subtle espresso and toffee notes.Some complex molasses and maple syrup thickness really compliment this sout. Overall, Fairly basic stout flavors. Chocolate and coffee overtones,. I’d give this a B+ rating.

22oz courtesy of radarsock. Cheers, Ander! Pours a medium stout brown with a tan head. Nose is roasted malts, some molasses, some sugar, some chocolate, and some syrupy sweetness with dark fruit. Flavor hits with sark fruit and molasses up front, some booze, dark fruit, and mild coffee in the mid, and then syrupy fruit in the finish with mild licorice and molasses. Finish is molasses and dark fruit; light to medium in body for the style and not bad overall.

maneliquor (3483) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 17, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2014 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours cola like with a small firm and sense tan head leaving some nice looking lacing. Nose is big on milk chocolate. Very rum and raisin like. Plenty if dark, stewed fruits and heavy milk chocolate mix well. Taste is a great balance of milk chocolate, sweet vanilla and light burnt ash tones. Very balanced for such a big beer. Really great stuff

j12601 (9549) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep dark black with a medium to thick sized dark tan head. Big heavy dusty roast, chocolate and cocoa on the nose, with a little dry hoppiness and coffee. Medium bodied, big and roasty. The alcohol peeks through a tiny bit but for being 10% it’s not as heavy as it could be. Very easy drinking, smooth and roasty. Lots of cocoa and chocolate. Smooth roast into a lightly hoppy bitterness with a bunch of cocoa. Very tasty.

Smokey, burnt malts dominate the flavor profile. Dark and chewy, almost grainy on the palate. Not very good.

Thanks to Owen for the bottle. Pitch black with a dark mocha colored head. Thick and black. Nice. Candied tires, char, ash, boots, chocolate and licorice. I think everything was candied in the nose. Taste is similar. Just a lot more sweet licorice to mix in with the tires, char and ash. Overly sweet and oppressive. Prefered the other RIS they make as more of a dry roast character. Only drank half the bottle as just too darned sweet and oppressive. By style it is correct but though it had a lot of flaws

Dogbrick (11180) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Sample at the 5th Annual Coldest Day of the Year Stout Tasting on 01/26/2013: The beer pours pitch black with a medium thick beige head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of coffee, malt and anise. Full-bodied with flavors of chocolate malt, licorice, and coffee. The finish is burnt malt and coffee. Pretty good overall.
