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.

This beer is labelled as "Vampire Slayer" around these parts. The palate is rich yet smooth. The chocolate notes stood out to me more than anything else, but there is also plenty of roasted and smoked malt. Not cloying or harsh whatsoever, just a great imperial stout.

colui72 (605) - HONG KONG - JUN 27, 2016
It pours thick black with a nice brown head, good lacing. Strong aroma, of roasted malts, smoke and vanilla. Damn tasty in the palate, with a complex mix of roasted and smoked malts, whiskey, vanilla, coffee, cocoa. Not much taste of booze, sticky on the lips, full bodied and with medium carbonation. A winner! Fantastic ale!

On tap. Pours an opaque black with a large, long lasting, frothy, beige head that leaves plenty of lacing. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, licorice, dark chocolate, coffee and a hint of smoke. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, licorice and coffee with warming alcohol in the finish. Full body with a rich, creamy, smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. Excellent.

Mało amerykańskie ale ogolnie bardzo fajnie kawowo, waniliowo, czekoladowe piwo z niezłym balansem i fajna dosyć gęsta struktura, bardzo deserowe i genialnie jak na 10% ukryty alko, raczej polecam

Slubgob (297) - West Hartford, USA - APR 24, 2016
Bomber into wine glass. Pours dark with a creamy quickly fading head. Strong nose of coffee, prime, port, caramel. Almost like mocha coffee in the mouth, thick creamy and roast. The barest hint of alcohol. Long, lingering finish of more roasted chocolate, coffee, and a bit of sweet. Goes down too easily, could be dangerous!
