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.

Rating #1197 - Bottle from CBI - 23.07.2014. Big bubbly black pour with a tan head that erupts from an aggressive pour. Aroma is heavy roast malt, caramel,mild vanilla. Taste is roast malt toffee sweetness, and an unchalky bitterness, medium-heavy alcohol character, but well tempered with the luxurious toffee sweetness. Impressive.

Oakes (13966) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 7, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown, thin head, aroma is rich dark plummy fruitiness, with a touch of molasses and smoke. Quite the intense aroma. A big stout with tons of sweetness, dark burnt molasses. At this age the finish is a bit thin, with maybe some woodiness.

jake65 (3019) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle, Boise imperial stout tasting. Near black pour with a thin finger of creamy brown head. Huge aroma of roast and coffee, light cocoa and smoke. Same basic impact in the taste; a rich roasted malt with faint smoke, espresso, and hints of vanilla. Very big and flavorful. Finished a little bittersweet. Solid beer.

DavoleBomb (1614) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Poured into a snifter. 3.75 A: Black color. Two fingers of frothy light brown head. Retention is decent given the ABV and a half finger of lacing is left. 3.25 S: This brewery can’t seem to make a beer without throwing in way too many hops regardless of style. Roasted barley, smoky char, molasses, and bitter chocolate. Herbal and earthy hops with hints of citrus. 3.0 T: Tastes like it smells. Moderate hop bitterness. Roasted barley with extra burnt notes. Smoke, bitter chocolate, molasses, and hops. Earthy hop flavor with herbal and hints of citrus. 3.75 M: Lighter heavy body. Good moderate carbonation. Moderately creamy and smooth. Booze is well hidden. 3.0 D: It’s okay, but I prefer less hoppy stouts. ★ 719 characters DavoleBomb, May 11, 2014

MacBoost (1607) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Black, huge overflowing tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, some anise. Taste is semi sweet and bitter. Flavors of roasted cereal grains, black licorice, a touch of bitter chocolate. Thick mouthfeel. Roasty. Finished bitter and a touch sticky. Solid.

Changed (448) - Ithaca, New York, USA - SEP 26, 2015
Bomber. Pours black. Tan head, no lacing. Aroma? Hah! No aroma, I’m terribly sick! Flavor? Chocolate, roasted malt, coffee for sure. How am I doing? I’m just guessing at these, because that’s what every imperial stout tastes like. At least a stout is a good beer to drink when you’re sick; very soothing to the throat. Soothing indeed. Seriously, I’m sure this beer is great. I have nothing bad to say about it.

Percy0103 (317) - MEXICO - SEP 24, 2015
Bottle, 650ml. An almost dark beer with a medium size brown head. Aroma is of chocolate, nuts, alcohol and coffee. Taste is bitter with a strong finish. Moderately dense with a strong aftertaste that reminds me of black coffee. Almost reminds me of coffee. Nice Imperial Stout but certainly not the strongest.
