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.

22 oz bottle poured, shared by my brother. Awesome that these Clown Shoes are showing up a couple hundred miles south. Hopefully soon it will be even more convenient, and we can pick it up in Seattle. A jet black pour with a quick fading head. A hot aroma of chocolate malt, roasted character. Flavor is a slightly doughy malt, a ton of rich chocolate, creamy body. A touch smokey as hoped. Solid beer. Solid label. Impressive stuff here.

Boutip (6428) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2017
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large brown foamy head with good retention. Aroma of roasted malt with some black chocolate notes is quite enticing. Taste is a mix of dry roasted malt notes with some black chocolate, light molasses and subtle smoke notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation and some warming alcohol notes are noticeable. Solid imperial stout with right amount of complexity.

nearbeer (5514) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 27, 2017
650 ml. bottled 06/04/2013. Black with a disc of sticky cobweb foam. Smells of soy, molasses, wine and chocolate. Taste is wine, chocolate, dark bread and cocoa. Medium-heavy body has low-medium carbonation and a decent balance but shows way too much booze for 4 years of bottle aging.

4.4
lello4ever (1113) - ITALY - MAY 9, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2017 Praticamente nera, schiuma di media persistenza beige super fine. Aroma di malto tostato con punta affumicata, cioccolato e un pelo di dark fruits e liquirizia. Eccellente bevuta, corpo pieno, cremosa, cioccolata, malto tostato, bella dolce con finale equilibrato. Buon alcol che sostiene alla grande.
