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.

Botella. Black colour, light brown head. Chocolate, licorice, roasted malt aroma. Good mouthfeel indeed. Flavour of roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit, licorice and some smoke to it, sweet. Nice indeed.

Very nice. This bottle was before the name change.This brewery does imperial stouts well. Roasted and sweet malt essence. Almost pure black with light brown edges. Small and quickly dissipating head. Fluid and oily but not too thick. Roasted malt and hops up front with a finish of coffee and vanilla. Chocolate too.

"A little light in color for an imperial stout, otherwise pretty great all around. The addition of smoked malt to the already complex stout takes this up a notch. Cofee, cocoa , bittersweet and slightly smokey. Nice brew."

Bottle, pours an opaque black body with a dark brown head. Aroma of cocoa powder, coffee, molasses, and smoked meat. Taste is similar although much smokier. Smooth and thick on the palate. Dark chocolate finish.

Shark_Pants (194) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 20, 2014
Pours inky black with small tan head that rapidly recedes to a film. The smell is a very rich and creamy mocha, molasses, vegemite, vanilla and charred meat. Taste is just as rich - sweet molasses, dark chocolate, light coffee, dark fruits, vanilla and finishes with charred steak bitterness and dryness. Like liquid velvet in the mouth. This is really, really good.

Hansen (6691) - Assentoft, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2014
Rated as Vampire Slayer. Dark brown, with a light brown head, lasting. Soft, roasted aroma, chocolate notes. Some laqurice too. Sweet flavor, more laqurice-notes. Soft and creamy.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - SEP 10, 2014
Bomber. An opaque black beer, with a large, frothy, lacing, mostly lasting brown head. The aroma is moderately malty (chocolate, cocoa, roasted grain), with notes of smoke, alcohol, vanilla. Th flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Full body, velvety/creamy texture, soft carbonation, long finish with moderate bitterness, moderately alcoholic. It doesn’t add anything in terms of originality in the crowded world of Imperial Stouts, still I can’t deny that it’s almost perfectly executed, hence the high score. Very good looking laces and pleasant mouthfeel, with the smoke adding a little depth.

ALLOVATE (2419) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 8, 2014
For an investment of cash and an awesome label comes a pretty mediocre impy. Left a little unimpressed, but on I go....
At cellar temperature and into a snifter. Tarrish, used motor oil, headless with no life and oily legs as its swirled about the glass. Malty, thick, deeply chocolaty and luscious nose screams sultry desserts of old. Liqueurish but withholding of that ABV. And then it ends. Big malts, rocketing towards overload. Bitter/sweet with a woody end. Burnt toast, cocoa, light vanilla. Hits hard; high fusels; warming, heated, fuelled ’hot’ finish. No character. Lean, softly frothy with good length. Offers a soft, mineral edge. Cloying, but just enough charred wood, cola soda, tar and roasted grain is there to shift it. Fail for me. Pretty average!!! (65cL, Bottled 14/02/14, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)
