Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

In a world full of uncertainty, hardship, and people trying to hold us back, do we need Vampires, too? Clown Shoes says, “No! Die, monsters, die!”

Our second anniversary ale incorporates signature dark malts, holy water, and malt smoked locally with hickory, ash, and vampire killing stakes.

4.05/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a solid black with a big tan head that lingers.

Smells big of chocolate...like a chocolate milkshake, with coffee notes, some citrus hop character. Really big nose actually, can smell it from across the table. Nice.

Taste is up front caramel, chocolate, chalky, that fades into a slightly smoky/roasted character, and ends on a hop bitter and roasted note. Lingering flavors of coffee, and chocolate...must be heavy on the black patent or similar grain. The astringent roasted character is present but not too out of balance.

Medium to heavy body with medium to lower carbonation. Alcohol is well balanced but present...feels a bit thin in the finish.

A nice imperial stout that is big on the chocolate and roasted flavors. It is lacking something to make it truly exceptional, but is still worth drinking.
