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.

22oz bottle in a snifter. Pours black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of strong roasted malts, a little coffee and dark chocolate, plus a good amount of bitter hops. Flavor about the same. Thicker texture. A good beer.

Black, tan head. Bitter roastiness and and a dense coffee, chocolate, malt flavor reminding me of a Russian Imperial Stout.

Call don’t use it becoming 1 of my favorite breweries. This offering from them called is their second anniversary addition and it is excellent. A dark kinky black appearance with a soft brown head. That’s what you would expect from imperial stout, some coffee notes and caramel malts give this strong, but not overpowering, finish.

PorterPounder (5968) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Macon, Ga - WineStyles Liquors Store - 22 oz bomber. Pours a viscous dark black with a thin, but persistent off-white colored head. Aroma has a nice chocolate bent to it with some light bourbon notes. Full-bodied flavor with some light licorice notes, a hint of smoke, a back end of bitter chocolate. Thick, velvety smooth mouthfeel. Pretty decent, not overpowering,

Compared to the pitch black Blecorn Unidragon I pored yesterday, this beer looked lighter in color. It was almost ruby red to dark brown with a beige head. The aroma was quite smoky with lots of chocolate and hops coming through as well. The taste was astringent bitter at the tip of tongue, tempered immediately with a mocha like sweetness which lingered. The finish was dry and smoky. Very easy drinking for a double digit ABV beer. The buffy (heh) body was quite chewy, with a grainy palette. Very good take on the style, with a creative label embellishment. Since it contains holy water, all sins I commit before, during, and after will be washed right away.

Thanks to alefish for this beer. Poured from 22oz bottle to snifter: Pours a deep dark burnt coffee color with an edge of ruby clarity. Finger of medium brown head that subsides to a thin cap and collar. Precise lacing. The nose sort of reminds me of Stone’s IRS - big on the smoke character. Beneath that there is dark fruit, chocolate, some vanilla as well, spicy alcohol comes after a good snort. The taste takes a similar direction. Big smoke with some instant coffee, bitter chocolate, a bit hot but not overly aggressive. Pretty unique I have to say. Definitely becomes more agreeable as I go. Tasty. Overall, very glad to have had the opportunity to try this one - thanks man!

Bottle from Gloria. Dark pour with a small brown head. Aroma is chocolate, kinda light, and maybe a little smoke. Taste is licorice, alcohol, smoke, and burned chocolate.

bhensonb (12039) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Bomber from Half Time. Pours very, very dark with a 3 finger bubbly/foamy tan head. Aroma is incredibly dark stuff. Not fruit. Like smoke, and something suggesting oak. Full bodied and more. Flavor is super dark chocolate, smoke, wood and an ashy astringency. Finish is like that, and it has some sweetness, but all the flavors sort of render that irrelevant. This is awesomely strong flavored ale.

kathouse (1201) - Nevada, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Pours a deep black with thin tan head but good lacings. Aroma of wood, chocolate, and smoke. Flavor is sweet but oakey. Notes of soy, blackened toast, and tobacco. Finishes with an oily coating of black malt bitterness and smoke.
