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.

bottle... Clown shoes needs to stick to he stouts, they have them nailed, I still prefer blaecorn slightly but another great effort... light black body with a bright tan with cream head, good retention... the aroma has coffee, lots of dark malt, a bit smoke... the taste has a bit of the char that I like from the blaecorn but overall is a touch sweeter, alcohol hidden well, easy to drink... recommend highly due to price and availability

Black color with mocha head. Aroma has roasted malt, molasses, milk chocolate and some liquorice. Taste is rich and roasty with chocolate malt and some savory notes. Medium plus body with soft carbonation. A legit american style imperial stout.

Shared bottle, thanks @ciocanelu.
Nice, roasty aroma, quite potent and with no alcohol traces. Lactose, coffee, dark chocolate and a tad smoky. The full body keeps a nice roasty flavor, with a hint of smoke, also with chocolate, hazelnuts, dark fruits and sweet molasses. Finish is bitter and roasty. Nice impy.

minihame2 (765) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2017
Oily, black body and a frothy tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, some coffee and a bit of dark chocolate. Taste is sweet, plenty of roasted malts but still not that sharp. There's a bit of lactose feel to it and lots of coffee in the aftertaste. Body is medium, low carbonation, mouthfeel is milky and soft but overall surprisingly light. Very nice, full flavoured stout.

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 (6567) - 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.

Bomber from Market Street Wine Shop, Downtown. Pours thick and back, small brown head. Aroma is boozy chocolate, smoked peat, caramel, and perhaps a hint of fruit. Flavor is smoked peat, sweet boozy chocolate both dark and milk, caramel. Good work.

As Vampire Slayer. Old note. The aroma has roast, chocolate. Black coloured beer with a thin, brown head. The taste is moderate bitter, has quite some roast and chocolate. Full bodied beer. Good.
