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.

On tap at Ol Beer in Walnut Creek, CA. Pours black with a think brown head. Tastes of chocolate and roasted malts. I think I even tasted a little bit of that hickory. I'm a sucker for imp stouts. Gotta love em. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dead black pour with a quickly dissipating head that was a light brown. Aroma is a milk, dark chocolate, sugar, malts, and light light coffe and caramel. Such a smooth beer. I feel like i get a slight ashy smokey flavor that does a good job of taking away from the bitterness you get from the dark chocolate taste. Smooth and creamy. Medium light carbed. Reminds me a lot of some really good cigar city stputs Ive had. Good beer.

EyeAmBaldman (347) - Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Pours black with a thick foamy caramel head. Aroma is sweet with notes of pecan, malt and a twinge of alcohol. Taste is full of chocolate with some nice bitterness on the tongue with a good bite on the backend. There’s a good bit of roasted malt and chocolate in the mouth. This is a really good stout.

[2/13/15] Draught at Rogue Ales Public House in San Francisco. Black with a brown head. Aroma of roast and salty licorice. Flavor is quite sweet with a bit of coffee, a bit of chocolate, a bit of licorice and a bitterish finish. Quite full-bodied.

jimhilt (2443) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Pours a two finger tan head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Black color, no highlights. Medium carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Roasted malt nose and flavor is slightly sweet smoky chocolate. Decent imp stout. High ABV is hidden. $10.35 for a 22oz bottle from Bert’s Better Beers Hooksett, NH

Strong coffee flavor with a little boozy after taste. Dark coffee appearance. This is a pretty great stout and is not over powerful like an imperial stout usually is.
