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.

From notes. Great beer, Bottle poured into a shaker. Coffee, chocolate and loads of smoked malt. I’m really liking this beer. I think I can taste the Holy Water.

I hate clowns. I hate clown shoes. What a stupid name for a beer, really! Anyway, this undead party crasher, slightly two years over date, was a joy to drink. Hell, it even made me laugh one or two times. Dark chocs, roast,, raisin, vanilla, some coffee. Just ad it up, clowns. Sweetness wins over the bitter in this case. Next time i´m going to the circus I´ll order this one.

22oz bottle. Pours black with a creamy tan head. Delicious dark malt flavors that are not too sweet. The hickory and ash smoke notes work really well with this one and make for a unique impy stout. My favorite from Clown Shoes so far.

piscator34 (1960) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 15, 2014
Bottled sample via and shared with oakbluff. Black in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of toasted marshmallow, roasted malts, and vanilla. Fairly balanced in the mouth, with notes of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and char. A touch of sweetness, but not at all cloying. A solid performer overall.

Bottle:   Dark pour, brown head, foamy, nice lacing.   Sweet soy, dark chocolate, light bitterness, toasty, feels heavy.   Some dark pitted fruit.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Lots of sweet soy and dark chocolate on the finish.   Low hop and actually low roastiness.   Easy drinking big stout.   Thanks Kevin!

Damn well made beer. Wish the head stuck around a bit longer, but that’s nitpicking. Great notes of chocolate, no alcoholic heat. Great dessert beer pairing with rich foods. I chose a cheese and pear tart with slated caramel.

Pours big and thick and black with a rolling dark tan head. Smells like molasses, coffee, dark chocolate. Tastes very complex with caramel chocolate, roasty malts, chocolate, and christmas cake flavours, and very low hop count.has a bug thick mouthfeel almost the consistency of pancake syrup, big and heavy and absolutely delicious. .has a wonderful doughy yeast and is really a fantastic tasting stout. Can you tell i loved it?
