COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What should we call our Russian Imperial Stout? Black Unicorn? Soul Dragon? Nohhh. Let’s 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.

MacBoost (1738) - Penfield, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Pours a really thick black. No light comes through when held up to the lamp. Thick tan head on top. Chocolate and alcohol in the nose. Not a good sign... I’m not a fan of overly boozy imperial stouts. The first sip is a relief because the alcohol which was so prominent in the nose is well hidden in the taste. Thick and chalky, bitter and chocolate, anise and liquorish. Not sweet at all, which is always a plus. Very long finish, with a lingering aftertaste of bitterness and black unknown. Very good. Very, very good.

pineypower (3048) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Bottle via trade. Pours black with a nice tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, light roast, dark cherries, molasses and alcohol. Taste is complex with an appropriately thick mouthfeel. Notes of chocolate, dried fruits, burnt chocolate cake, light smoke and a solid dose of bitterness in there also. Definitely an enjoyable stout by a company I hope to see in NJ soon.

kabsetter (103) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2012
A nice RIS with a kick! What id expect from a well crafted imperial, but the alcohol came through a bit much. But at 12.5%, one should expect a warm swig, no? If i find it again, I suspect this one would age Very well.
