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.

Dark with a tannish brown head. Roasty toasty malt, full with a hint of dark sweetness (cherry, raisin, fig) and a long finish. Hints of oak and vanilla. Very nice stout.

Bold, big, and smooth. Loved the maltiness of this stout, along with its roastiness. And the use of holy water...awesome!

I think I was expecting a bit more out of this one. The bigger stouts seem to be what Clown Shoes favors and this one came up just a little short for me. Still not bad though. Would just pick other stouts from them before this one.

This is a really big, really good American Stout. Not as complex as some of my other favorite stouts, but very good. I could drink a few bottles, and I think I will.

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 12, 2013
22oz. bottle, dated 10/18/12, making this almost exactly one year old. Aroma primarily consists of dark chocolate and black licorice, with lighter notes of roasted malt, molasses and vanilla, with a touch of alcohol in the background. Black in color with dark brown highlights, and featuring a diminutive head with very sparse lacing. Flavor profile is sweet and roasty, with plenty of chocolate throughout and a burnt sugar character, blended with coffee, earth, anise, and some mild hop bitterness and smoke towards the finish. Thick, coating mouthfeel, lightly warming and full with a huge body, managing to avoid being overly sweet by presenting a good bit of countering dryness. Decent rendering.

Small snifter filled from a large bottle. Full body with light but OK carbonation. High ABV evident. Some dark fruit, coffee and dark chocolate. Lasting, rich aftertaste. Main gripe: a bit too sweet.

A great stout! Pours a inky black with a thick brown head. Smells include chocolate and figs. Taste starts very milky, has some fruitiness, mostly fig in the middle, and a smoky finish. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good smoked stout. The smoke flavor isnít overwhelming like it is with some other beers that Iíve tried. Pours a black color with a dark chocolate brown head. First flavors noticed are chocolate and hop flavored malts. Later as it warmed up I could pick out some vanilla and smoked wood flavors. Very boozy strong beer.
