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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

bottle was purchased sometime last year

A: poured into a snifter to a deep black with a one finger tan head that is slow to fade and leaves good lacing
S: smells of bittersweet chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and a little smoke
T: taste is chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and just a hint of smoke. swallow is roasted malt, chocolate and more smoke with a little coffee
M: this beer is on the heavy side with a smooth and silky mouthfeel. carbonation is there but is very subdued while the finish is just slightly on the drying side
O: This is a fantastic beer with great flavors and a killer mouthfeel. This one nails it in the American Imperial Stout category.

Bomber into pint glass

A- dark as the night that spawns the undead. Thin tan head.
S- Roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate
T - rich, roasted malt start...sweet coco finish
M - medium... Could be a bit thicker, but i like me thick
O- Nice stout for the price. Rich and malty... I could swear coco nibs were involved
