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.

This beer is labelled as "Vampire Slayer" around these parts. The palate is rich yet smooth. The chocolate notes stood out to me more than anything else, but there is also plenty of roasted and smoked malt. Not cloying or harsh whatsoever, just a great imperial stout.

Bottle - Light peat notes, chocolate and a bit of soy. Jet black with a rich brown head. Heavy roast, dark molasses, peat, plum and balanced finish. Although not a smoked beer, you do get it in the flavor profile. These guys are awesome.

65 cl bottle @ home as Clown Shoes Vampire Slayer
Aroma is rather light with and somewhat sweet with roastiness and some cocoa notes. Also some milk chocolate. Flavour has sweet cocoa, vanilla and some milk chocolate. Last sip felt like a salmiac powder. Like a chocolate sombrero without chili. Sweetness rules here but not bad still. A sweet slow sipper.
