COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hoppy Feet guy extinguished evil via a sharp stake through an undead chest. Now, Blaecorn Unidragon, full of fury, has expelled another bloodsucker from Earth. We hate vampires, but love Vampire Slayer, which we blended in equal parts with Blaecorn Unidragon, bourbon barrel aging the mix to beget Very Angry Beast.

Note: A blend of bourbon barrel aged Vampire Slayer and bourbon barrel aged Blaecorn Unidragon.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, light coffee, oak and vanilla and bourbon, light dough, and hints of bitterness. Flavor the same. Smooth texture. A solid beer but not the best blend of everything.

Good one. Nice aroma of blended bourbon with roasted malts and vanilla. Very dark and viscous appearing with a decent tan head. Smooth, full and somewhat oily palate. Bourbon and boozy flavors are first with some sweetness, then roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and finally vanilla. Pretty complex beer.

Dan269605 (235) - Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA - APR 21, 2014
Very dark chestnut brown, tan head. Big boozy aromas of bourbon, tons of vanilla, chocolate, smoke, oak. caramel, brown sugar. The taste is big and bracing like the nose. Nothing here is subtle, a bit hot with the alcohol. Its another good stout released by Clown Shoes, but I think Iíll lay a few down for a while.

Bomber. Rich dark fruit aroma with bourbon and vanilla notes with some booziness. Pours oily black with a very thin light brown head and some lacing. Dark fruit flavors with vanilla bourbon notes. Slick, smooth body with a little bit of booze on the finish. Very good brew.

22oz bomber pours inky darkness with a dark tan head. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, chocolate goodness, smooth booze and then a mix of soft bourbon and marshmallow. The taste is rich with dark roasted malts and smooth bourbon goodness where between these notes Iím getting chocolate chip brownie and marshmallow. This is nice with a pleasing balance between barrel time and the base beer. It also has a great body for a barrel aged beer. I say, yum.
