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.

22oz Bottle. The pour was a deep dark jet black with an average (1-2 finger) medium brown dense creamy head that reduced to a thin film with a small collar and had excellent sheeting of sticky lacing. The aroma was very robust with a burnt chocolate malt, light resin hops and a sweaty leathery yeast, with notes of dark chocolate, dark roasted coffee, vanilla and a bit of smoke. The taste was extremely malty and lightly sweet with a hint of chocolate for the first few seconds, and then became moderately bitter with a big coffee note, a hint of smoke and an almost overwhelming alcohol presence towards the finish. The flavor stuck around for an average duration after the swallow, with an alcohol infused espresso mocha taste left to settle in on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was full in body with an oily, dry texture and a very soft carbonation. Overall this was a very impressive brew, one which possessed a ton of flavor and a smooth easy drinkability. I believe I will buy another just to age, a brew like this can only get better and better...

Pours black with a thick caramel head that leaves nice lacing in the glass. Aroma is prominent when the beer is ice old. It’s a strong alcohol and roasted malt on the nose when cold. As it warms the aroma disappears. Taste is full of alcohol bitterness at first and then a ton of coffee and roasted malt. Seems to be a fair bit of dark chocolate on the tongue as well. This is a fine Russian imperial.

23.10.2014. Aroma of sweet roasted malts. Very intense taste has roasted malts, coffee but also sweetness I often like in IS. It is maybe rather simple yet tasty.

Draft. How does a beer this big and this tasty have zero aroma?! Weird. Flavors of milk, ristretto, a bit of raisin and a bit of chocolate. Finish is sudden and dry. No hint of alcohol. Almost a summery imperial stout! Probably outperforming its rating.

This stout lover was pleased. Like Old Rasputin on steroids. I did expect a more intense aroma, but its hard to find fault.

Year old. Pours black with thin tan head. Nose is dank hops, booze, dark malts, chocolate. Very creamy. Taste is lots of dark malts, chocolate, nice sweetness on the finish, I think there's a hoppy spiciness in there. Very solid.
