A- Black, opaque.
S- Chocolate, toffee, raisins.
T- Strong bitter espresso taste followed by slight raisin fruit character. The finish is bitter and alcoholic.
M- Creamy like a milk stout.
O- An awesome brew. I'd drink it, but not for 10$ a pop. I'd go Lagoo Capp Stout. Awesome brew though.

Undead Party Crasher appears pitch black and oily, with a light caramel colored head. The initial puff of about a half inch fades to a thin band encircling the glass. Dark and alluring.

The aroma coming off the brew is very lively, despite its name... I sense vanilla creme, malted milk balls, caramel, gourmet chocolate and a hint of coffee bean.

I can't help comparing this to Vampire Slayer, which is one of my favorite Clown Shoes beers I've enjoyed to date. I am pleased to say I think this is even better - more focused tasting... and hard to believe the ABV on this is higher than the aforementioned V.S. As a matter of fact it's so smooth, if I were to guess I would say this is an 8%. I love it when an Imperial Stout is dangerously drinkable...

I still get a sudden dash of something reminiscent of Rauchbier, but it is enveloped and somewhat dismissed by bittersweet chocolate, espresso, and molasses. There is a little bit of a smoky/earthy finish, but It's not terribly drying. It's got a great mouth feel without any booziness hitting you over the head.

Overall, like I said, I think this is very lively and bright for a stout... so in other words, if your thing is milk stouts or sweet stouts, and not imperial stouts, I would expand a little and give this a try... you will be very pleasantly surprised how drinkable and nice this is. It's very safe to say that this is one of the very finest stouts. It's very complex and clean, and clearly crafted by experts. I love it!

22oz bottle shared in little plastic hotel cups.

Pours black with a small beige head, medium-low carbonation. Smell is roasty, black licorice. Some chocolate. Surprisingly mild.

Taste is sweet, but deep. Black licorice, chocolate, coffee. Deep roast. Slight alcohol.

Mouthfeel is light and surprisingly crisp. Overall, nice beer.

Mmmmm. Chocolatey, fruity, with notes of coffee and liquor. A liquid Fig Newton. Wonderful.
