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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

What a name, huh? Black in color with a medium brown head, its aroma is fairly easy, with soft roasted malts barely owning the nose. Alcohol gently decorates a slightly roasted malt flavor. Itís easy in the mouth, lightened by alcohol but otherwise thick and malty with roasted malts and alcohol rocking the casbah. Itís just so damn smooth! I suppose this is much like what youíd think a strong brown would taste like. Nice.

Pours blackish brown with tan head. Nose is oaky bourbon, Molasses, roasty malt. Tastes oaky, with vanilla, molasses, bourbon, roasty dark malt, nuts, hops, and a complex finish. This one is solid.

22oz bottle in a snifter. Pours very dark brown with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, bourbon, caramel and chocolate, and some bitter hops. Flavor the same, with a good amount of bourbon and a nice blend of the two beers. Smooth texture. A good beer.

Curious label I hadnít seen before jumped into my shopping cart the last time I was down in Mass. Pours a pretty solid black color with a decent creamy tan head that shows moderate retention and lots of lacing. Smell is heavy on the caramel, vanilla, and milk chocolate. Thereís a solid roast in there as well as a lactose kind of aroma. Thereís a slightly earthy oakiness, but its really hidden under the other aromas. The flavor is again lots of caramel and milk chocolate up front. A creamy vanilla mixes with a solid roastiness and a hint of tannin and warming alcohol. Finish is long and sweet with a lingering roast and warming alcohol. Thick body with a creamy oily mouthfeel and a moderate level of carbonation. This is a big thick sweet beer that demands attention. I liked it a lot, but I actually thought it was a hint to sweet.

Bottle at the BA Buffalo bottle share. Pours deep amber thin tan head. Nose and mouth get kicked by a big blast of bourbon, oak, and chocolate. Nose does have a nice breads element. Light sweetness. Body is but seems a tad thin.
