COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is Blaecorn Unidragon made with Beechwood Smoked malt, which adds a natural meaty note (there is no actual meat in the brew). Aged 100% in bourbon barrels. Little piggies run, squeal to the heavens: Clown Shoes wishes you luck.

Is this the same beer everyone else has been raving about? The bourbon is very up front. Itís most of what I taste. I detect a little smoke flavor and burnt chocolate. Itís very harsh. I donít understand why this beer is so much poorer than the blaecorn unidragon which is a solid 4/5 in my book. I am very disappointed. I was looking forward to this and it became a $13 drain pour.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, thick black pour with creamy tan head, aroma is pretty nice once you get passed the big smoke character, hints of dark fruits, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, oak and bourbon, hints of slight spice notes come through as well, but the smoke is a bit much. Taste is a bit smoky, charred, campfire like, slight hints of dark chocolate, touch of oak, earth, bourbon, and spice, sweet chocolate, roast, and coffee, hints of vanilla, finishing smoky, roasted.

Pours a deep brown black with a slight brown head. Aroma of roasted malts with a slight smokey aroma. The taste follows with a sweet boozy bourbon flavor. Not much heat to this.

22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 4/17/2013. Pours dense pitch black color with a small dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass with some alcohol legs. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, smoked meat, light char, toast, toffee, vanilla, oak, clove, bourbon, and roasted earthiness; with a bit of booziness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of roasted/smoked malt and barrel notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, smoke, char, toast, toffee, vanilla, oak, clove, bourbon, and roasted earthiness. Fair amount of roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, smoke, char, toast, toffee, vanilla, oak, clove, bourbon, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and barrel flavors; with a nice roasted/sweetness/barrel flavor balance with no cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is fairly well hidden with only a moderate warming present after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent barrel aged imperial stout! All around great complexity and balance of dark/roasted/smoked malt and barrel flavors; and fairly smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle. Pours black with thin, diminishing, tan head and soapy lace. Nose of smoke, chocolate, alcohol, meat, roast, caramel, slight band aid. Medium to full body, creamy body. Taste of smoke, chocolate, roasted malt. Little too much smoke for my liking but pretty good. Smooth for 12.5%.

Mittenator (1284) - Michigan, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Bomber. Near black with a dark tan head. Lots of wood, vanilla and bourbon. Earthy and chalky. Coats the mouth and does have a meaty flavor.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Bottle. Deep opaque brown-black body, thin head/ring. Potent, inky nose with lots of roasty booze, ashy coffee beans, chocolate, and sharp smoky wood. Sharp, boozy body, the alcohol prickly on the tongue and in the nose; lots of coffee, roast, and burnt sugars, with a huge, difficult tannic bitter finish. Lots of vanilla from the bourbon aging. Over-the-top and harsh, a weird one to review.
