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.

Pours a very dark brown - almost black, with small beige head. Rich aroma consisting of malt, coffee, and caramel. Tasted very similar to a mocha. Included hints of roasted wood and malt. Slight tinge of hops and smoke in taste. If you like smokey flavored drinks this is the beer for you.

Pours pitch black with a two finger frothy beige head that slowly settles into a lasting cap/ring.  Streaks and spots of lace left behind.

Slightly smokey aroma with roasted dark malts balanced by some sweeter notes.  Hints of toast, dark chocolate, oatmeal and coffee along with smoked meat and subtle hops.  subtle lactic presence.

Medium bodied but a bit thinner than expected with a strong roasted malt presence that is sligtly dry and acrid but not overwhelmingly so.  Hints of burnt toast, deeply roasted coffee, dark chocolate and oatmeal.  Very bitter with subtle hops complimenting the dry, roasted notes.  Subtle lactic presence and some chocolate sweetness. Finishes with boozy heat that gives off a lot of alcohol flavor.  Astringent dry boozy finish.  Looks and smells nice but the flavor doesn't follow through.
