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.

Black with medium tan head. Aroma is a bit roasty and sweet. Decent flavor, decent body. Has the weird sweetness I equate to Hr Frederickson.

boxofrane (2539) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a film on top.. leaves a little lace. Aroma is chocolate, dark malts, a little coffee. Taste is killer and very chocolatey without being overly sweet. The bitter finish is outstanding. This is a favorite!

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Bomber bottle and served in my Stone IRS snifter: Pours jet inky black topped by a lasting frothy tan head which left very good lace upon the glassware. The aroma has notes of roast, chocolate, char, liquorice, leather, tar, freshly cut grass, and some minerally earthy vapours. Light to moderate piney and resiny hop esters in conjunction with a touch espresso makes this quite inviting. The taste is happily not a let down with a nice sweet, smoke, bitter combination dancing the happy happy dance across the stars and straight into the heart of evil. Ashy, coffee, resiny, slightly fruity and very earthy. YES, FINALLY a Clown Shoes beer worth the monies I paid for it. Is it world class, not quite sure ’bout that but it is more than enjoyable.

500 mL bottle. Almost black, and it took a hard pour to get any kind of head on it. Absolutely lovely aroma of coffee and chocolate that somehow doesn’t equal mocha. Flavour is the same, with a little smoke added. Bit of booze at the end is not out of place. Body is perfect - smooth and creamy. Great beer!

hivemind (811) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Tap @ FG w e. Pours black with basically no head, surprising for an imperial stout. Kind of looks like a porter, unique. Nose of a bit of roast and nut and maybe chocolate. Palate is the same with some licorice too. Pretty dry and boozey with an oily mouthfeel. I like.

AmEricanbrew (6451) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Black color with dark brown head. Nice dark chocolate, light ash, sea breeze, smoky aromas. Light smooth mouthfeel. Deep roast malt flavors with dark chocolate, candi sugar, ash, smoke, drying bitter finish--good

fraternie (937) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Lots of smoke and roasted malt here that dominates and helps to cover the high abv. Creamy body with a finish that keeps pumping, ending with a blast of bitter, metallic hops.
