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.

Deep brownish black. Aroma is licorice, dark malts, hops. Flavor up front is a little sweet cocao followed by an even bitterness. Nothing comletely overwhelms anything else. This is a finely balanced imperial stout that goes down a little too easy.

Handypaul (435) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 19, 2016
Pours black with a fully-lasting, creamy, dark brown head that leaves very good lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate and spruce. Medium body, appropriate carbonation, lightly bitter, medium sweet, creamy mouthfeel, flavors of chocolate, light molasses leading to a brief caramel finish. Excellent!

Dredd (836) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - OCT 10, 2016
Hard not to like from the packaging through to the beer itself. Jet black pour with thin tan head. A massive range of aroma - licorice, prunes, chocolate and more. Flavor is a massive burst of flavor, again, licorice, chocolate, coffee dried fruit and more. Long finish which exhibits a touch of heat to remind you how boozy this is.

olsvammel (6200) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2016
Sample at SBWF 2016. Dark malty smell with bourbon, dark chocolate and roasted aromas. Similar taste, sweet with caramel. Well hidden ABV. Nice!

magicmn (158) - Moscow, RUSSIA - SEP 14, 2016
Bottled at Beergeek store St Peterburg. Dark brown with, hoppy aroma of berries and trace of coffee. Taste is bit dull, hoppy enough, body is medium-light, bit water for a imperial stout, not enough maltiness - just bit coffee. Completely disappointing for such a high-rated beer.

Andrew196 (1468) - Katy, Texas, USA - SEP 9, 2016
Bottle to glass - pours black with a very appealing camel head, sticky lace. Aroma of chocolate bars, coffee, earthiness, and smoke. Very full and rich on the tongue.... Flavor goes on forever, sweet chocolate meshes wonderfully with the dark roasted malts... Nice vegetable touches in the aftertaste. Well done.

thedm (5776) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 9, 2016
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a head of fine to medium sized bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque and a good lacing. The weak aroma was malty. The mildly vinous thick mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering mild roasted malt aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of black malt root beer strong malt mildly vinous sweet burnt malt and brown malt.

650 ml flaske av Vampire Slayer delt på RBHD-samling på Fjøløy. Klar dyp mahogni kropp med flott lysbrunt skum. Vanilje og røstede noter av kaffe og sjokolade i nesa. Nydelig søt og røstet malt i smaken. Kjempegod ettersmak. Fyldig og myk å drikke.
