COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double Brown Ale blended with Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout Some pimps walk. Some pimps strut. Some pimps run from the law. This pimp, a blend of Pimp and Knob Creek bourbon barrel aged Blaecorn Unidragon, rides between giant wings as they flap through a fiery night sky.

Not great in comparison to the other amazing beers of the evening. Really wasn’t fair to be honest. Truth be told, this beer is just kind of muddled and lost. It’s not bad, but the brown ale and imperial stout qualities clash. The roastiness overwhlems some of the other more light flavors of the beer. The weight of the beer feels off as well. It would work if it were just a brown ale. The bourbon barrel imp stout makes it taste feel like it should have more weight. Feels almost too watery. Just a miss for me.

From Winooski’s in August trip. Dark brown with big lace, with a mocha head. Chocolate, Cinnamon heat, even chile, roasty, hoppy. Coco. Good drinkability, softer than many bitter imperial stouts, they call it such on the bottle, it can pass as an IS.

GuillaumeCL (343) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2012
Pours black with some tan head that dissipates quickly. Smell is roasted malts and some sweet caramel. Palate is medium bodied with not a whole lot of carbonation. Taste is sweet and roasted, some slight hint of the brown ale in there, and some good hops. Long hoppy aftertaste.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Dark mahogany with glimpses of chestnut, acorn, and cappuccino with a small nutmeg head. Nose is cocoa, vanilla, and bourbon. Flavor is aggressive with lots of alcohol, oak, vanilla, chocolate, brownie, and fudge. Sounds better than it tastes. Everything is there, just not good combinations of each. The components are a little above average. Together, they make average...even when aged in bourbon barrels. Unfortunate.

Plus elle réchauffe, plus elle fait du sens, l’astringence disparaît et la sensation de boire deux bières différentes aussi. Le bourbon est bien établi, bonne buvabilité pour la grosseur.

thornecb (4363) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Pours dark mahogany into a tulip. Mocha head with little retention recedes to mottle surface. Dark caramel and chocolate aromas. Thin and dry with sweet dark molasses upfront turning to dark chocolate and espresso in the lasting mildly bourbon finish.

From a bottle poured a dark brown color with a good amount of head. Light sweet toasted malty flavor with a quick finish.

Wow this one punches you in the taste buds! Amazing aroma, aged in bourbon barrels gives it that smell and drop kick in the taste buds! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Some chocolate with some oxidation issues. Some grain tannins. Light nuttiness. Fairly heavy roast. Pretty acrid.
