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!

Pours very nearly jet black except for just a faint deep ruby tinge when held to the light,a deep mocha colored half finger head atop.Dark fruits,char,bitter chocolate,and sweet alcohol in the nose,not much smoke but a big brash aroma.Quite dry and charred up front than an onslaught of dark fruit and alcohol sweetness with a hint of vanilla,again not much smoke,but then some earthiness brings back some dryness.Well the label says it's smoked I don't get that element but this is a great stout,with all the flavor components from char to sweet.

In a tulip glass this beer was black in color with a tiny, almost nonexistant tan head.

Nice aroma of chocolate and coffee.

Even better taste. Mostly dark chocolate, but also plenty of sweet chocolate, making it kind of bittersweet. Some espresso coffee.

This was a rich and flavorful stout. One to savor.

Definitely will buy this again.

Dark abyss of a beer I love the pitch black body with a big mocha tan head, this is imperial stout at it's best!!! Aromas have dark chocolate, creamy marshmallow, smoked hickory from the burning stakes of fury used to formerly kill vampires, a hint of angelic holy water softness...okay I can't tell from smelling that there's holy water but the smoked hickory edge gives away the burning stake presence. Beautiful smoked imperial stout should be rated off the charts regardless of what they are sued over it's a great beer, Vampire Slayer or Undead Party Crasher I've had bottles from each batch. However this new batch hits me and I'm in love at hello! Big imperial stout soaked in wood aging effects I'm induced by the love of the intense qualities this beer has to offer. Mouthfeel is thick chewy rounded out by hickory smoke that is so thick you can chew on it. Overall I'm thoroughly impressed I'm in love once again, great beer from the first to last drop.
