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.

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, it’s a bit creamy and slick with moderate carbonation. I think it’s an enjoyable brew, I’d buy it again. $10.49 a bomber.

Bottle from Total wine Sterling. Pours black with a thin khaki head. There’s 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.

Countbeer (5297) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle: Medium sized, vast and thick and very slowly changing ashy brown head on top of a pitch blak beer. Aromas of dark chocolate, barley roast, some hops, some carbo gass, light hint of spices, roast, some tar, some herbs & spices, hint of garbage and cabbage. Flavours of (dark) chocolate, coffee beans, roasted barleys, bitter, coffee roast, some cacoa, wood burn, malt roast, light earth and the slightest hint of something coal a like. Overall a good dark bitter roast. Aftertaste is a bitter with chocolate, barley malt roast, coffee and some herbal roast. Low carbo, soft smooth creamy mouthfeel, full body and a creamy texture. Quite basic but very solid. And it’s easy drinkable with a smooth deeper dive...

thewolf (11490) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2013
Bottle, bought @ Kihoskh, Cph. Pours opaque deep black with a medium, staying, creamy, beige head. Aroma has sweet chocolate, light chestnut, a hint of coffee, light blackberry. Low to medium carbonation, fine dry and very creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has lovely luscious chocolate, a smoked hint, nuts, light roasted. A bit of coffee and mild vinious notes. Very mellow and well balanced. By far Clown Shoes’ best Imperial Stout.

Shooter42 (131) - California, USA - MAY 5, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 Very well made American Imperial Stout that is rich and sweet with notes of coffee and chocolate. Very little head when poured into glass from a 22 oz bottle but nice lacing that lingers. Aroma is pure coffee and Bourbon. Color is pitch black and beautiful.
