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.

Beerenberger (1590) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 29, 2012
There is a strong aroma of sweet roasted malts with a hint of chocolate and smoke. An opaque black pour with a nice but mostly diminishing tan head and loads of lacing. The taste has an overall light sweetness to it. This beer is a flavor bomb… very complex. Roasted malts, alcohol, chocolate, burnt bitterness, smoke, and a hint of dark fruit in the finish. The roasty bitterness continues in the aftertaste. Medium-full body with average carbonation. Overall, this brew is a FLAVOR BOMB! Excellant job Clown Shoes!

cmacklin (648) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - APR 30, 2016
On tap. Pours an opaque black with a large, long lasting, frothy, beige head that leaves plenty of lacing. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, licorice, dark chocolate, coffee and a hint of smoke. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, licorice and coffee with warming alcohol in the finish. Full body with a rich, creamy, smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. Excellent.

Mało amerykańskie ale ogolnie bardzo fajnie kawowo, waniliowo, czekoladowe piwo z niezłym balansem i fajna dosyć gęsta struktura, bardzo deserowe i genialnie jak na 10% ukryty alko, raczej polecam

Slubgob (282) - West Hartford, USA - APR 24, 2016
Bomber into wine glass. Pours dark with a creamy quickly fading head. Strong nose of coffee, prime, port, caramel. Almost like mocha coffee in the mouth, thick creamy and roast. The barest hint of alcohol. Long, lingering finish of more roasted chocolate, coffee, and a bit of sweet. Goes down too easily, could be dangerous!

sebletitje (8606) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2016
Bouteille 66cl de et partagée avec Erwin. Brune foncée, noire, doré au verre, col blanc-cassé. Arôme malté, pointe de fumé, surement de l’hickory, amertume en rétro. Palais est malté, épais, pâle, fin chocolaté, léger grillé, avec une note de fumé. Retrouve un côté crystal avec un fini épicé et fruité noir, voire de baies. Semble légère même à 10%.
