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.

650ml bottle from The Wine Emporium. Everything about this beer is awesome from the great artwork on the label to the pitch black colour, chocolate aroma and burnt malt flavours.

Pours pitch black with a large dark mocha head. Smells roasted with a smoky dynamic. Tastes roasted and a hint smoky with a very faint touch of chocolate. Full-bodied with smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Clown Shoes Vampire Slayer finishes with a hint of smokiness.

Very lovely imperial american stout. Full taste, lovely black color. I love the name but it doesn't reflect in the taste :) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber bottle into a pint glass resulting in a perfect head and lofty aromas. Richly dark and nicely sweet. Slight tastes of smoke and coal. One of the best in its league.

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. Iím a big stout lover, and this is now on my list of faves.

Wow the description makes the hairs on my neck stick up. Hearing Brock Lesnarís 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.

Pitch black color with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is sweet but bitter. Very balanced and delicious. Light alcohol taste. But definitely a kick. Slightly dry bitter finish.
