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.

22oz bottle in a snifter. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of bourbon, oak, vanilla, roasted and chocolate malts, some dough, and floral hops. Flavor the same, really complex and a good amount of bourbon. Smooth texture. A good beer, and I agree with someone else on here that it might be the best Clown Shoes beer.

November 13, 2015 - bottle from AV3 a long time ago. Very dark pour with limited head. Aroma was sweet malt, bourbon and chocolate. Taste started out sweet, moved into a mild bourbon and finished too dry and roasty for me.

Poured from a 22oz bomber at home. Aroma has bourbon, chocolate, vanilla. Taste is complex and very good. Mouth feel is how a imperial stout should be. Fantastic tasting beer

650 mL bottle. Pours oily brown. Complex aroma and flavour with smoke, roast, booze, mocha, coconut, and maraschino cherry. Good body. Outstanding beer.

marcus (9238) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 7, 2015
Bottle from Berkeley Bowl West. Pours near black with a tiny tan head and a marvelous treacle aroma. There is a full-bodied dark molasses flavor with lots of smoke, a bit of chocolate and a bourbon finish.

Super dark goodness with no head. Great aroma of roasted malt, dark fruit. Really good. Taste of roasted malt and alcohol.

Bottle shared by Adrien, thanks! Pours dark brown with an off white head. Aroma is dark chocolate, spent coffee grinds, bourbon vanilla oak. Flavor is dark chocolate, licorice, warm bourbon and tannic oak in the finish. Sorry, this is a little too tannic for my taste.

Bomber Bottled on 4/18/2013. Nice aroma of whiskey right up front, mild chocolate, Burnt sugar with weak hints of licorice. Lightly sweet bourbon with burnt sugar, the hints of licorice and some lingering chocolate in the finish. Medium to fuller body with a mildly creamy texture. Pretty nicely done stout.

Thanks Adrien for sharing. Bottled - 4-18-2013. Pitch black, brown edges. no light goes through at all. almost no head either. The nose is very strong, tons of wood, a lot of sweet vanilla and whiskey, chocolate candy bars and licorice. Oh yeah, this is pretty flavorful but almost like chewing on cheap candies, overly sweet, lots of butterscotch and licorice and old oranges, something else weird and plastic-like. The finish is very bitter and almost like a solvent. but for what it’s worth, I like this beer despite some of the off flavors.

I let this age for a year and a half bottle date 4/13 drinking it on 10/14, it’s like a milk stout without the lactose. So malty....This is a strong beer!

"Mmmmeaty. I should really lead the back of the label. When I bought this, I "just" thought I was getting a bourbon version of the very good base beer (which isn’t smoke like their Vampire Slayer is). Well...glad I was wrong. Solid beer across the board. This was a big chewy monster of a stout, but not too much at 12.5%. The fudgy roasted stout, smoke, and bourbon are all prevelant and share the stage well, in the nose and on the tongue. Nicely done.
