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.

Theydon_Bois (7898) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2012
On tap at TJís Everyday, Paoli, PA - 25/05/12. Solid black colouration with a medium mocha head. Roasted malt nose with an alcohol whiff, not too much else. Roasted malts in the taste, slightly charred and burnt a lot of booze in there! Medium to full bodied, more carbonation that Iíd have expected. Alcohol isnít balanced enough for me, all booze and malt!

Served from a 22 oz bottle from Priscoís. The appearance is a deep flat black. The flavors and aromas are rich roasty and smoky malts, lots of dry dark fruits, and some cocoa additions. A full, slightly drying mouth. Very enjoyable IRS.

22 oz. bottle poured into a snifter. A: Pours a completely pitch black color that never yields to the light. The head is a two finger mocha color with pretty poor retention and lacing. S: Roasted malt, brown sugar, coffee, licorice, chocolate, wood, subtle smoke, and a little booze come together in the scent. Nothing out of the ordinary, but executed nicely. T: The first thing I notice is how well attenuated this one is. Itís not very sweet (at all) yet the booze presence is only moderate. The initial sip is heavy on roasty notes, which temporarily gives way to flavors of anise seed and coffee. The finish is fairly boozy (to the point where it burns slightly at times), but overall it has surprising drinkability for a 12.5% RIS. Faint hints of dark fruit can be tasted, and the presence of soy sauce, bitter dark chocolate, and smoke pop after several sips. General flavor is savory rather than sweet, with solid complexity and balance. M: Hereís where things disappoint slightly. I like how the big roasty presence gives it solid dryness overall, but itís lacking in body for a big stout. The dryness combined with the alcohol presence gives a nice mouthwatering sensation, though. The booze warms the body nicely, making it a great winter brew (how I wish it was still January...) While it could use a more delicate persona, I canít find much fault in its general drinkability. Low carbonation. O: I was pleasantly surprised with this one. It bears a passing resemblance to Yeti, which is always a great thing in my mind. Itís a very big beer, but itís never too bloated for its own good. Even still, itís best to share this mutha with friends. Itís kind of expensive - I paid $11 for a bottle - but Iíd say itís worth it if youíre looking for a night-capping sipper to share with others.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 24, 2012
22oz bottle (2/2012): pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet dark caramel malty nose with some ashy roasted coffee. Starts with good fullness and rich roasty espresso with some dark chocolate and a touch of phenols before a drier roasty bittersweet finish. Could be a little cleaner, but has good complexity.

Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday tasting @ De Molen. Aroma is huge sharp roast, some silty notes, chocolate, liquorice and more. Flavour is huge dry bitter roast, liquorice, chocolate, not that hoppy, more a ashy bitter malt. Some alcohol.

Out of a bomber. Pitch black poor with thin dark brown head. Notice the hops and burnt malts out the gate. A little bit alcoholy, but it is 12.5% abv after all. Would make a good beer to cellar. ---Rated via iPhone

22oz bottle. Medium brown head atop cola-black body. Aroma is moderately sweet, bakerís chocolate, some roast/coffee, light vinous. Taste is sweet, bittersweet chocolate, vinous, some plum, alcohol, earthy/grapefruit. Sticky medium-full body. The first sip is a boozy doozy, but the palate adjusted.

LoFi (1550) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2012
Bottle (bottled 1/2012). Black with a light brown head that dissolves quickly. Aroma: roasted, licorice, tobacco/ashes, hops, some whipped cream. Taste: salty licorice, lakrisal, ashes, grapefruit, roasted malt, cocoa powder, chocolate coated coffee beans, high bitterness. Long finish with citrus, asphalt and the taste of chewing on coffee beans. Full-bodied. Lite "extra allt" Ųver den hšr, men jag gillarít.

Good flavor but the body is a little light for my taste. Good hints of chocolate from the burnt malts.
