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.

Chocolate, coffee pretty good. A nice imperial Stout. Very strong and has a prominent malt flavor.

Barreras (931) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Pours a dark cola color with a black licorice flavor. Taste is rich in dark malt with heavy alcohol notes. A distinct smoky flavor to the beer, a little too much smoked wood flavor. Overall a decent beer for the style but not to my liking.

DuffMan (6438) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle, labelled as Vampire Slayer, shared with Grippitis and Parksy. Inky pour, thick brown head, good retention. Aroma is chocolatey, with licorice and soy. Palate is much the same, but with a subtle smokey and woody character that adds to the appeal. Delicious.

fishonmyplane (402) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - FEB 23, 2014
This beer is labelled as "Vampire Slayer" around these parts. The palate is rich yet smooth. The chocolate notes stood out to me more than anything else, but there is also plenty of roasted and smoked malt. Not cloying or harsh whatsoever, just a great imperial stout.

Ferris (2889) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle - Light peat notes, chocolate and a bit of soy. Jet black with a rich brown head. Heavy roast, dark molasses, peat, plum and balanced finish. Although not a smoked beer, you do get it in the flavor profile. These guys are awesome.

annunz123 (844) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Coffee, chocolate, and vanilla in the aroma. Flavor is bittersweet chocolate and coffee, with some smoky roast and alcohol in the finish. Nice choice for a snowy winter night.

lusikka (5927) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2014
650 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a small head. Aroma of roasted malts, salty licorice, bread and baking powder. Flavour of roasted malts, some baking powder notes, wooden notes, chocolate and some mild earthy notes. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes roasty and lingering bitter. Good.

laiti (5407) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2014
65 cl bottle @ home as ”Clown Shoes Vampire Slayer”
Aroma is rather light with and somewhat sweet with roastiness and some cocoa notes. Also some milk chocolate. Flavour has sweet cocoa, vanilla and some milk chocolate. Last sip felt like a salmiac powder. Like a chocolate sombrero without chili. Sweetness rules here but not bad still. A sweet slow sipper.
