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.

Cybercat (3275) - Georgia, USA - APR 20, 2012
Strong, smoky aroma has notes of licorice, quality coffee and molasses plus a hint of semi-sweet chocolate. Pours a deep, warm sable with a thick and fine-bubbled tan head that leaves some generous lacing. Lip-smacking smoky flavor has firm chocolate, coffee, molasses and toffee notes with hints of licorice and caramel. It is somewhat sweet, but not overly so. Smooth texture has above-average body and a decent amount of fizz that leaves a fairly persistent tingle in the mouth and on the lips. I’m a big stout lover, and this is now on my list of faves.

red-sepia with thin cream ring for head. Nose is lightly ashy, brownie, considerable hop. Flavor is heavy burnt sugar across mid, light roast in finish, marshmallow, sticky, heavy.

aracauna (3055) - Georgia, USA - APR 19, 2012
Good but not great imperial stout. After tasting a few of the other beers from Clown Shoes, I was expecting something more over the top. This is about as normal as you can get for the style.

zizzybalubba (1407) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - APR 19, 2012
22 oz. bottle from Total Wine (North Hills) in Raleigh, NC. Pours very dark brown, almost black, with a creamy brown head. Aroma of rich roasted oats, bitter chocolate, and roasted coffee. The taste is very good with equal parts chocolate and espresso and finishes lightly but noticeably smoky. A very good imperial stout.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2012
22oz bottle: pours a mostly opaque dark mahogany with a stringy-lacing light tan head. Has a sweet dark caramel and chocolate nose with lots of resiny hops. Starts with good fullness and chewy dark caramel and chocolate with some dark fruity complexity and resiny hop bitterness before a drier roasty finish. A pretty good imperial stout.

GT2 (8366) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 15, 2012
651mL. Deep ruby brown pour. Reddish borne head. Webby lace. Nose is rich toast and burnt cherry with figs and dark chocolate. Nice. Taste is super hoppy. I'm thinking Black IPA here. Chocolate and grapefruit clash with mild alcohol and spice. Dry palate. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
