COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What should we call our Russian Imperial Stout? Black Unicorn? Soul Dragon? Nohhh. Letís combine them and create the ultimate mythical creature: Blaecorn Unidragon.

Imbued with a monstrous amount of dark malt and aggressive hops, Blaecorn Unidragon is a powerful and complex brew designed to improve with age.

Keg @ Sedona. Deep brown with a small head. The nose is rocky road ice cream, rich cocoa, cream. Marshmallow. Invitingly earthy sweetness. The taste is toasted salted peanuts. Rich. Ashy malts. Mild acidic coffee ground. Dark chocolate. Quite nutty really. Hot finish. Full body, oily. Overall, pretty solid.

2012 Pours heavy black with a couple fingers tanish head. Smell huge red fruits and ash. Taste smooth chocolate, roast, and a bit of vanilla. Coating, viscus, and big bodied. Solid RIS, not amazing

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2013 Draft. Very dark, not quite black. Short duration head. Standard RIS scent. Taste is burnt malt , coffee, alcohol, dried fruit. Bitter finish, but not a hop bitterness. Didnít get chocolate or vanilla or hops. Just tastes burnt. I thought Iíd love it. I didnít. Revisit. Multiple repeat tastings (couldnít believe I didnít love it) If I challenge (saturate) my taste buds first with, for instance, a Yeti (my favorite), the B. Unidragon becomes a very sweet and very pleasant RIS and I almost prefer it. If I start with it, I dislike it because of the íburntí taste. After a Yeti, it meets all my expectations.

Thick, syrupy black. Tons of roast coffee and black malt on the nose, with a touch of smoke. Very similar flavor profile, a huge roast barley Component as well.

651 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained, beige head, with some lacing,over an opaque, black (SRM 45) body, which has tremendous legs....nose is heavy coffee, lighter chocolate, hints of dried fruits including raisin, plum, light floral hop spice.....taste is heavy coffee, with chocolate tones, light plum, raisin, hints of licorice, minimal hop spice, ending with a heavy hop bitterness......mouth feel thick, creamy, lightly sticky, slightly astringent, alcohol warmth present, carbonation makes a creamy ending. This is a huge beer. The alcohol is remarkably subtle and well hidden considering its level. The malt and hop backbones are nicely complex and balanced, but dominate the yeast aromas and flavors. The ABV is a bit high for the style. This will age well. BJCP 8/3/17/5/7

Aroma: hippy, chocolate, maybe a hint of vanilla. App: black and thick tan head. Taste: vanilla and coffee, charcoal. Palate: full mouth but creamy. Pretty short though.

Ostomo517 (73) - Norton Shores, Michigan, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Pours pitch black. Palate is surprisingly smooth for a RIS. Vanilla smooth as silk at first with toasty hints and a good hop snap followed by more malt and roast. A all to well hidden 12.5% abv. Best RIS on the market. Clown Shoes is groundbreaking.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2015 Color: strong dark black beer with no carbonation and small brown head. Smell: malt, sugar, licorice, raisin. Taste: good complexity in mouth with malt sugar and caramel. Aftertaste: small alcohol taste and nice bitterness with licorice.

I thought this was a fantastic Imperial Stout. Had it on tap at a local joint. I didnít write down my tasting notes, but it was a very roasty complex stout. Delicious.
