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.

The beer pours a deep inky black color with a tan head. The aroma is full of heavily roasted malts with a little bit of chocolate and some alcohol thrown in. The flavor is a little more complex. I get a lot of roasted malt and a slight bit of char, as well as some dark chocolate and alcohol. There is also a little bit of sweetness that is similar to molasses. Medium carbonation and thick, full mouthfeel.

22 oz bottle from Blue Dog. Poured a pitch black body with an average to larger dark beige thick foamy head that leaves rings of lace on my New Belgium tulip. Aroma of sweeter dark chocolate, burnt malts, espresso beans, burnt coffe, citrus rind, hickory bbq sauce and charcoal. Medium to full body with a more thick feel towards the end, average to stronger carbonation with a chalky mouthfeel and just the slightest touch of heat on the end of the swallow. Flavor of dark chocolate syrup, burnt wood, charcoal, some black olives, molasses and burnt espresso. Man I want clown shoes to come to NJ, this is a solid new brewery.

Pours a nice black with a cocoa head. Aroma is of chocolate, roasted malts, some woody flavors. Same flavor pretty much. The alcohol isn’t very noticable. Pretty good, a little on the sweet side but perfect for dessert.

Bottle from Total Wine Ft. Lauderdale. Pours out black with a small tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, coffee, some good roasty notes, licorice and some light smoke. Taste is of chocolate, licorice, some roast, light earthy smoke, and a touch of lingering alcohol. Smooth, full bodied and nice mouthfeel. Love the label description.

Bomberrrrr. Nose is chocolate, roasted oak, roasted coffee, some dark fruit, molasses, and a hint of sweetness. Taste is similar and quite sweet on the finish with nice roast and chocolate properties. More fruit as it warmed. An excellent beer.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, thanks to Josh for the pour! Dark black pour with creamy tan head, aroma was ashy, tobacco campfire notes, hints of caramel, roast, hints of chocolate, molasses in there, slight salty bacon note. Taste is a nice mix of smoke, slight dark fruits, hints of anise, chocolate, bacon notes as well, finishing fairly roasted and smoky but a bit thin.

Wow the description makes the hairs on my neck stick up. Hearing Brock Lesnar’s voice in the background makes it that much more grisly. Pours pitch black with a super thick light brown head. Great lacing left on the glass. This stuff smells incredible! Big roasty malt aroma right up front and in your face. Coffee, molasses, and chocolate come through in the background. Full bodied. The front of my tongue feels a bitter sweet, roasted malt, chocolate, oak, and slight booze. The back can taste oak, malt, roasty, chocolate, some sweetness, and a smoked oak finish. Different. Amazing. Leaves an oaked roasted malt finish. This is tasty. Sensational.

Bottle. Black bodied with a medium, dense brown head. Roasted malt, dark fruit, chocolate, and coffee in the nose. Taste is roasted malt, burnt caramel, dark fruit, chocolate cake, coffee notes, light vanilla, and soft smokiness. Body is medium-full with a strong, dense carbonation and soft warmth from the alcohol. Ends with more roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, dark fruit, and oily coffee beans.
