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.

65 cl bottle @ home as ”Clown Shoes Vampire Slayer”
Aroma is rather light with and somewhat sweet with roastiness and some cocoa notes. Also some milk chocolate. Flavour has sweet cocoa, vanilla and some milk chocolate. Last sip felt like a salmiac powder. Like a chocolate sombrero without chili. Sweetness rules here but not bad still. A sweet slow sipper.

worldbeertaste (1795) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2014
Backlog from December - Black with a brown, lacy, lasting, frothy, medium head. Smells of coffee, roast, chocolate, caramel, and light vanilla. Dry. Medium to full oily slick body. Tastes of sweet malt with a strong bitter lasting roasted finish. Light liquorish, caramel, and strong coffee. Nice sweet to bitter balance. Lasting finish. Nice Stout.

22 ounce bottle labeled as Vampire Slayer. Pours a thicker black with a khaki colored head lof foam. The aroma is roasty with loads of dark, bitter chocolate. Taste has more of that bitter chocolate influence. Big body, low to medium carbonation, thick mouthfeel.

Lupulucid (189) - - FEB 1, 2014
The malt of Vampire Slayer/Undead Party Crasher strikes me as slightly over toasted. Some appealing flavors and complexity are present but the smoke is a bit distracting.

CanIHave4Beers (3999) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Bootle as "Vampire Slayer"
Pours basically black with a small head and decent lacing on the glass.

The aroma offers some grape drank & nail polish remover... as it warms there is some dark fruit and roastiness too, but the previous less fun aromas persist.

The beer is roasty with plenty of dark fruit, some light smokiness & some light bitterness. It’s boozy but nice, it’s not overly sweet... not a bad flavor, and not a lot of the messiness of the aroma therein.

Pours jet black color with the consistency of motor oil and has a dark brown short lived head. The aroma is of roasted coffee and dark chocolate. the flavor is of Dark chocolate with a note of booze. The body is full with a light bitter and sweet aftertaste. Overall a very good imperial stout.

Dan269605 (235) - Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Black and syrupy, slight crimson hues, brown head. Smoky aroma wafting up from this one, followed by Mexican chocolate. The flavors are smoke, spice, chocolate, coffee, a little dark fruit as it warms. Good stuff but smoke may overpower it a bit.
