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.

msante79 (2212) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Bomber from Binny’s Arlington Heights. Pours near black with dark tan head. Aromas of chocolate, some caramel, dark fruits, and tons of roasted malts. Flavors of roasted malts, chocolate, light dark fruit notes, some residual sweetness, and some hop bitterness. This is a pretty big stout and maybe a bit over roasted to be great. Nice beer none-the-less.

reggiedunlop (3404) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Pours black with a medium mocha head...nice lacing. Aroma has cocoa, caramel, and subtle dark fruit...a bit of spicy hop notes. Flavor is more complex with coffee, dark chocolate, ash, smoke, and tobacco...nice burnt bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium/full with a burnt, dry finish that lingers...roasty and slightly boozy.

crosamich (431) - Twin Falls, Idaho, USA - MAR 3, 2012
This one has a nice Light body and thin mouthfeel, a pretty dry stout which is my preference. It is one of those beers that is so burnt & roasted that it seems smoky. Doesn’t seem all that aggressively hopped to me but the hops are there and add some bitterness to the sharp malt bitter.

jimhilt (2451) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Pours a three finger brown head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Black color, no highlights, ton of yeast left in bottle. Medium carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Coffee and alcohol nose, flavor is roasted coffee, some alcohol. Light burnt coffee finish. Decent RIS. $11.20 for a 22oz bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

AdamJackson (3341) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 27, 2012
A friend brought this over. Poured at room temp into a tulip. Bottled 10/2011

A - 1/4 head that was very dark and chocolatey in appearance. The brew itself was a dark brown to black. Lots of alcohol legs and a very heavy viscous appearance as you swirled it around the glass.

S - Coffee, chocolate, cocoa beans and roasted pecans. Some pine as well.

T - Right off, lots of booze hits the mouth. It’s an older beer so it shouldn’t still be so boozy. Then, roasted malts, wood and dry hops.

M - 90% bubbles on a single swish. HUGE mouthfeel here. Smokey and a very dry linger after swallowing.

O - This was alright. I love ImpStouts but age didn’t improve this beer.

SHIG (3844) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle at Korean homebrewers meet up: Poured a black brown with light bubble head. Aroma is chocolate. Taste is more chocolate with a very hot alcohol presence. A little to hot to fully enjoy what it may offer.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - FEB 21, 2012
22 oz. bottle from Total Wine - Pours a dark brown color with a half finger thick tan head. Very light spotty lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, light chocolate, and a hint of smoke. Flavor is roasted malt, light coffee, and a hint of licorice. Has a chocolate finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium to full body. A good beer.

fidelis83 (2125) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Pours oily black with a 1 finger, oily mocha head that fades pretty quickly to a thick ring, but holds there and leaves some decent lacing. Aroma is roast, roasted nuts, burnt chocolate chip cookies, campfire, burnt sugar, molasses and piney hops. Flavor is big on sweet burnt sugar, alcohol, roast, burnt chocolate brownies, sweet tobacco, burnt marshmallow straight off of the charred stick it was roasted on, mossy earth and licorice. Fruit cake, piney hops, ashy char and a lasting mixture of sweet booziness, bitter char and bitter, piney and citrus hops. Palate is pretty heavy, though not that heavy for a nearly 13% impy stout, creamy, syrupy and slick on entry, lightly carbonated, slick, dry and warming on the finish, with a lingering, charred bitterness that makes the beer seem more dry than it is. Definitely tasty and complex, but the burnt notes are a bit too much, which is saying alot about a 12.5% Impy Stout that is quite sweet. Might be interesting to see what it’s like in a year or two.

brokensail (12362) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Black in color with an khaki colored head. Intensely roasty with a metallic tinge to it. There’s an ashy quality to it as well as some smoke and burnt toast. The flavor is really no better. I get lots of smoke, ash, and char. The metallic character is still there as is a mild acidity. Maybe some molasses, licorice, and dark chocolate, but sort of a moot point.
