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.

Iím becoming more and more impressed with these guys. This one pours a dark brown color with a brown head. The aroma is toasty with some dry dark chocolate and no hops to speak of. The flavor is rich yet dry with chocolate and smoke. Nice rich chocolaty finish. Iíll pick up a bottle next time I see one. Very nice stuff.

ajnepple (3570) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2013
22 oz bottle from Liquor Kabinet. Black with a light brown head. The aroma is dark chocolate, roasted malts, light wood and light smoke. Similar flavor, fairly sweet and creamy, hides the alcohol. Medium body with a soft smooth feel. Good, but slightly underwhelming and little too sweet for me.

bluejacket74 (1570) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2013
22 ounce bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like dark fruit, chocolate, burnt/charred malt, and a bit of coffee. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some molasses, smoked malt and vanilla. Has a good sweet and burnt/roasty flavor overall. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit creamy and slick with moderate carbonation. I think itís an enjoyable brew, Iíd buy it again. $10.49 a bomber.

Bottle from Total wine Sterling. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Thereís a lot of lacing in the glass. Lots of cocoa on the nose. Very nice. Robust and roasty on the tongue with a hint of alcohol on the finish. Very nice!

Pours dark brown with a finger of tan head. Aroma is of caramel, hops, and roasted malts. Tastes of roasted malts, bitter, vanilla, caramel, and coffee. Has a nice long taste on the tongue. Clown shoes is top of my list in breweries. They do them all very well.
