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.

Bottled on 10/11/12, poured into a snifter. Pours jet black, minimal head with very little lacing. Thin pour, nose is bourbon and vanilla...a little bit of smoke. Bourbon is very muted. Medium heavy carbonation, pretty hot alcohol burn! This is a nice beer.

Bomber poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lingering ring of tan foam. Aromas of smoke, roasted malt, bitter chocolate and light bourbon. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of smoke, roasted malt, bitter choclate, light earthiness and light bourbon with a smooth lingering smokey finish.

BigBeer45 (1240) - Michigan, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle, this Impy had a black-brown pour and made a one finger tan bubbled head that receded to a thin cover and thick ring, the glass had nice spots and fingers of lacing, and the bottom of the bottle had a ring of dark sediment at the edge of the bottle, it had aromas of roasted malt, chocolate, faint coffee and caramel, some bourbon alcohol and sweetness, molasses sweetness, and faint earth notes, the flavors were roasted malt and roasted malt bitterness, coffee, some chocolate, molasses and caramel, a little bourbon flavor, the finish had malt bitterness (somewhat astringent) and alcohol spike, the mouth feel was pretty thick and it was a little creamy, some alcohol warmed on the palate, it was a nice Imperial Stout with more bitterness (and astringency) than I prefer in a Impy drink, less bitterness would help me to enjoy it.

ICEatALAMO (912) - Troy, Michigan, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle. The pour is a dark brown/copper color. The aroma is sweet sweet bourbon with a hint of smokiness. The taste has a lot of smoke in it that I was expecting, and less bourbon. An interesting mix of flavors. High marks on the palate because of it.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Bourbon and chocolate nose. Bourbon, vanilla palate, with a balanced touch of smoke and ash coming through on the finish. Balanced for 12.5%. Long, elegant finish, which lingers with dark fruit and bourbon. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

Chipalsa (1307) - Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Here is just one more reason to be a fan of Clown Shoes. From a bomber into a Belgian-pimp glass splashed like watered-down chocolate syrup into some cola. The smells was a little earthy and a little smokey with some nice oak and cherries all about. It tasted smokey as well, but with a nice half-and half like fuggin’ balance of sweetness with a smooth raisin/toffee finish. Good stuff right hrrrrrr.

Thanks for the share, Harold. Nose is big bourbon, smoke, chocolate, roast, and bbq. Flavors are pretty damn close. A good dose of smoked meats and bourbon. Great brew.
