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.

4.08/5  rDev -0.7%

A: Pours black with slightly reddish highlights. Quarter inch mocha head which fades quickly to the rim and a very thin cap leaving spotty lace.

N: Dark chocolate and cocoa powder, vanilla, roast, charred wood, some coffee and faint dark fruits.

T: Smoky, char, roasty, wood, cocoa powder. More smoke on warming and vanilla fades.

M: Full body and moderate carbonation. Oily, slick and sweetish, smoky finish.

O: Addition of Vampire killing stakes takes this to another level. Die Vampires!

3.98/5  rDev -3.2%

Received in a trade out of a bottle.

Pours black with a finger of tannish head, typical of an imperial stout.

Smell is a lot of chocolate, malt, cinnamon, and coffee.

Taste is smooth fruity, espresso and a bit of chocolate

Very drinkable, smooth.

Pretty good.

4.31/5  rDev +4.9%

A - jet black with ample tan head, great lacing

S - heavy roast, smoke, fruit, booze

T - cocoa, molasses, char, dark fruits (cherries/plums), a sour note probably from the char keeps this well balanced and adds a great deal of complexity

M - medium to full, not in the least bit syrupy

O - a very complex beer, the smoke adds some accents without detracting from the stout base
