LOOK: Dark brown with a tan head. Dark oily looking brew. The head laces the glass well. Overall, this has the ominous look of a fine imperial stout.

SMELL: Delicious chocolate malt aroma, along with coffee, charcoal and roast. Smells like a nice full, roasted assed stout.

TASTE: Mocha, espresso, dark chocolate and a bit of cream. A bit of hop bitterness is perceived, and the citrus and pine almost tasted, but the big malt bill overpowers these forces. Just a hint of heat in the finish, this drinks more like a regular stout rather than the imperial beast that this is. There is a full, chewy body and medium carbonation. This is a smooth devil of a beer, I mean, a smooth Vampire slayer.

OVERALL: Smooth operator...smoooth vampire slayer!

Drank from a snifter

A - Pours black with a medium to big body and a nice two finger head that stays for a few minutes.

S - Dark fruits and roasted malts

T - Medium body with sweet raisins up front followed by a bit of chocolate and roasted malts. The finish has a light sweet roasted flavor.

M - A little lighter than I would prefer for this beer.

O - Very good but lacks in body and would be better if some more of the flavors came out.

Clown Shoes' Vampire Slayer, Imperial American Stout. 10% ABV.

A: Black with tan head. Root beer brown in the bottom. Just the slightest lacing and sheeting.

S: Cocoa. Sweet toffee. Some woody notes. Slight cigar, maybe. Very faint licorice.

T/MF: A lot of bitter cocoa/bittersweet chocolate. Light licorice. Slight sweet creamer.

Fairly good. I could see this being quite good with bourbon barrel aging. I must admit, hype had me expecting more, but I'm still glad to have tried this. ...Especially before the name and label change!

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle, into a Petrus chalice
