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.

nuplastikk (4322) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 22, 2012
22oz bottle split with Anndiesel. Opaque brown-black body, steady beige head. Bold, warm Imperial Stout. Kind of middle of the road in the way it doesn’t really mask/incorporate the alcohol so well. There a nice creamy subtlety in the body which is pleasant, Coffee, smoke, chocolate, vanilla, caramel...its all in there. Lots of malt depth. Better as it mellows outs in the glass. OK.

mcberko (6272) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 21, 2012
22 oz. bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany), pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, some dry cocoa powder and oatmeal. Flavour is roasty and chocolaty, with cocoa, toffee, some dark fruits, and some lactic qualities. Full-bodied and milky. Nothing offensive here - very enjoyable, thick imperial stout, the best of Clown Shoes I’ve had.

Marsiblursi (3001) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2012 (Bottle) Pours black with a creamy brown head. The aroma holds deep and fat roast alongside robust and sticky hops. Tones of dark fat caramel, liquorice, dark chocolate/cocoa, new asphalt, light espresso, fresh cut grass, grapefruit/lime juice, green herbs and a touch of pine. Hints of dried fruits, sweet berry jam, smoky minerals, wet leather, tobacco and soy. The flavor is light to medium sweet, medium bitter and light acidic with notes of fat malt (maybe a bit to sticky), green hops, earthy tobacco, dark fruits and dark berries. The mouthfeel is creamy, soft (for a CS beer) fat and light oily with a light carbonation. Deep roast and green hops on the finish. Near full bodied.

stravale (2075) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle at Craig’s tasting 16th Oct 2012
Pitch black, soft tan head, good lacing
Aroma - Rich dark caramel malts, deep dark chocolatey malts, really smooth aroma
Taste - Dark chocolatey malts, soft roasted malts, slight toffee, rich dark luxuriant malts, really smooth, abv very well hidden, great taste, maybe just lacking some depth in the flavour to be brilliant
Palate - soft carb, medium to full body, smooth , quite viscous. Finish as main flavour
Overall - Smooth, well made impy stout, super flavour initially but just needs a bit more going on. It just about gets 4.0...it was the #1 beer of the tasting
