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 is my kind of Imperial Stout. You can tell it wasn’t brewed on the West Coast, because they’ve avoided the highly hopped formula some choose and given us a very vinous, port-like aroma, with fruity notes of grape and figs, though the flavor gives way to a much more resonant chocolate note, with hints of smoke and earthy malts. Very strong mouthfeel, rich and velvety. Excellent beer. Bottle.

Bomber. Inky black pour with nice brown head. Nose is fudge, roast, coffee, earth and light smoke. Flavor is slightly vegetal, coffee, dark chocolate, soy. Creamy mouthfeel with a pleasant, warming finish.

Bottle from a local Whole Foods. Upon popping the cap, there is a sweet aroma of dark fruits, particularly raspberries. That was unexpected. Pouring oil black, stubborn carbonation bubbles build a half-inch thick brown head. On the sweeter side, this beer masks the ABV well. There are notes of cigarettes, tootsie roll in the flavor. Not as pillowy as most imperial stouts. However, there is a nice constant warming effect from the high alcohol. Not a bad imperial stout, but not one that I would search for.

Pours dark black with a coffee colored head. Aroma is woody chocolate and anise. The taste is very oaky, with nice chocolate and black coffee. It’s a pretty solid imp stout that makes me want to hunt vampires.

Huhzubendah (2650) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 29, 2012
The beer is black with a half inch of tan head. The aroma is a bit sweet, lightly roasted, a hint of coffee and chocolate - smells fine. Nice flavor. Rich and medium to full bodied. Moderate carbonation. A light bitterness in the finish with a hint of coffee. Overall, this was enjoyable. I would have this again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-02-2012

humlelala (1035) - DENMARK - DEC 28, 2012
(66 cl bottle from Toft Vin; bottled in February 2012; Tasted while playing Skyrim Dawnguard) Pours black with medium, toffee head. Beautiful lace and solid retention. Aroma is roasted malt with notes of coffee and hints of smoke, ashehs and salt. Smooth, oily texture, soft carbonation, medium body and a slightly disappointing, short and warming finish with a hint of chocolate that turns dry quickly. Í don’t detect any hop-forward presence in this one apart of course from the drying sensation towards the end. Tastes like drinking tears infused through roasted malt. Interesting but probably not a repurchase at the import price.

Holy cow! Deep, dark, smoked malted goodness. Excellent strong stout. Black with foamy tan head with good lacing. Salty, coffee, malt, oak, smoke, and hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A nice beer mild smokeyness good head enjoyable for pro not for the faint of heart. Perfect mouth feel. Aroma is mild but sweet. Starts with a foamed chocolate ends with a camp fire flavor. Nice beer. Not epic though.
