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.

Cask at Midwest Brewers Fest. Poured black with decent tan head. Nice bourbon filled aroma. Quite smooth slightly hot bourbon taste. Would be good with variations.

Bottle. Pours very dark brown with tan head. Nose and taste of bourbon, scorched wood, smoke, burnt chocolate malt, tarred malt, burnt vanilla and caramelized brown sugar. Finishes a touch boozy bourbon/burnt roast chocolate. Medium body.

BBB63 (6051) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle and served in snifter: Nearly pitch black with a small fading head and spotty lace, some oily tears. The aroma has notes of smoked wood, bacon, burnt toast, leather, tobacco, tar, resin, and prunes. The taste is moderately sweet and earthy with a smoky and woody finish. Some coffee-ish and hop bitterness provides some semblance of balance. A tad boozy still after 6+ months cellar time... still needs more age. Lush tobacco like tones round out the palate. The mouth feel is aggressive and biting (again showing some youth) with a oily but not all that heavy palate, slightly ashy and metallic. This has potential but still suffering growing pains.

Great bourbon imperial stout. Served in snifter. Aroma pleasant but not strong. Slight foam ring. Inky black, with bourbon flavor overpowering chocate. Compared to Goose Island bourbon stout last night, the lower ABV of this makes it taste more like stout than whiskey. Either makes my taste buds happy!

Interesting beer with a bloody meat quality. A bit of smoke, iron, roast and some walnuts. A bit harsh and bordering on acrid but its saved by a mild chocolate on the finish. Pretty good but strange.

Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate, wood and bourbon alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy sweet bourbon and dark malt flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.

DrSilverworm (6478) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 17, 2013
22oz bottle, shared by b3shine. Very dark brown color, near black. Thin khaki / light brown head. Leaves couple bits and short ropes of lace. Awesome nose. Dark chocolate, light spice, moderate roast. Bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly soft. Lightly dry finish. Not too chewy, still respectably smooth, though. Brownine in the flavor, roast, light coffee, dark chocolate. Moderate sweet, bigger bitter taste. Light bite in the finish, but not too hot. Pretty good barrel-aged imperial stout.

Bomber to snifter (shared by me with the group). Looks good; a fairly opaque cola with beige lacing. Smells good too; dark malt, smoke, chocolate, and bourbon. Tastes like it smells, but a little less robust. Nice and smooth on the palate. Good beer.
