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.

On tap at battleship. Dark brown almost black in color. Aroma is of malts smoke charcoal bark. Flavor is a little sweet. Malts smoke and everything else in the aroma comes through in the flavor.

Bomber from Winooski. Brown with a dark tan head. Interesting blend, the RIS take a back seat to the double brown but you get a nice background of vanilla, oak, chocolate, anise and coffee with an overlay of smoke, nutiness, toasted malts. Full body, moderate carbonation, oak, more vanilla with some caramel, roasted malts, some booze and anise, slightly dry on the finish.

HonusWagner (1630) - Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Has a nice aroma of smokiness, cocoa, slight bourbon. Unfortunately, the taste is really, really metallic and highly unpleasant on the back of the palate. This upset me, because I like Blaecorn Unidragon a lot and thought that putting the BA version into an unremarkable Brown Ale would make a decent beer. Almost got there.

dnstone (2165) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Pour a deep espresso brown with solid tan-colored head. Roasty sweet, toasted bread aromas. Rich rich, strong brown ale character up front leading to roasty stout sweetness with subtle woody notes and a slight boozy finish that warms as it goes down. I really enjoy this beer; for the strong flavors, it is still soft and the grains give an excellent body and almost chewiness. Gatorís b!tc#e$ better be using jimmies after this one!

Cybercat (3516) - Georgia, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Rich aroma has the smokiness of the stout and the subtle spiciness of the brown ale. It has tones of caramel, licorice, molasses and mocha as well. Got me drooling like one of Pavlovís famous dogs. Pours an opaque, dark-chocolate brown with a thick and fairly persistent tan head that leaves some generous lacing. Satisfying flavor seems different with every sip - one gives you caramel, another molasses, another roast malt. Other flavors include toffee, semi-sweet chocolate, quality coffee, even touches of fruit. Alcohol bite is noticeable but not too fierce. Full-bodied texture is quite fizzy and lively, leaving a nice smoky, syrupy but not too sweet finish. Too bad this flight wonít last. If thereís a heaven for beer lovers, this will be on tap there.

RmmHronek (170) - Greensboro, North Carolina, USA - AUG 24, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2013 It has a great smell, a bit of whiskey, some sweet oats, a touch of burnt or smoke, with a touch of leather. It does have a surprisingly thin body for a double brown with imp. stout. The complexity is pretty great. Itís lively, and malty, a touch of booze and vanilla, but more wood than vanilla; itís strange but interesting. Like the smell of mossy, damp forest after a long conflagration.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy brown with small beige head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is roasted malt and chocolate. Thin mouthfeel with a strong roast and smoke with slight alcohol burn in the finish. A very good American strong ale from Clown Shoes.

Damico (2694) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Pours unclear coffee chestnut brown with a creamy caramel head. The aroma brings sweet roasted malts, some crust from the brown ale, and coffee. The flavors bring coffee, roasted malts, and some booze from the barrel.
