Undead Party Crasher | Clown Shoes. Poured from the bottle into a snifter, this beer's head is one finger thick and tan, with solid sheen lacing, and an extremely dark brown body.

Smells like blackberries and raspberries blended with a very well-done blend of roasted malts, semisweet and milk chocolates, and some of that smoked hickory mentioned on the labeling.

I taste pretty much the same as the aroma, with the accompaniment of caramel and toffee notes as you exhale post-swig. Not much "booziness" going on with this higher ABV, which is always a plus in my book. Now the fruit flavors I speak are nothing too sweet or sugary; JUST the tastes are what declare their place in this complex brew's profile.

The mouthfeel I'm getting here is medium-heavy with mild carbonation. Smooth and clean.

Overall, I'll rate Undead Party Crasher | Clown Shoes with a 4.5. A very well-executed imperial stout with a unique blend of sensory treats.

Dark dark black with a mocha colored, creamy head.

Aroma of milk chocolate, roasted malt, sweet toffee, hint of smoke.

Taste: great roasted character, not overly done. Chocolate notes, dark, slightly bittersweet, milky.. its all there. Toffee again, but subtle. Coffee with cream.

Mouthfeel: medium to fudgey.

Overall: a great balance of sweet and bitter roasted notes. The mouthfeel is fantastic. A great non BA stout.

This is just a really good beer. A sweet flavor but not too cloying. There is no head after pouring, but it doesn't detract from the enjoyment at all.

Bottle to snifter. Pours oily black. Small beige head, large bubbles linger along side of glass. Aroma is Toasted malt, touch of chocolate, touch of smoke. Taste is BlackBerry, blueberry raspberry, pomegranate, with a healthy dark chocolate kick at the end. Warming, I get a slight whiskey like finish, but the bottle does not say this is barrel aged. Must be the hickory.....I like it. Below avg carbonation, but very smooth, almost velvety mouth-feel. A nice stout. Now I am more excited to try my ""Flight of the Angry Beast"", which contains this beer in the mixture."
