What should we call our Russian Imperial Stout? Black Unicorn? Soul Dragon? Nohhh. Lets combine them and create the ultimate mythical creature: Blaecorn Unidragon.

Imbued with a monstrous amount of dark malt and aggressive hops, Blaecorn Unidragon is a powerful and complex brew designed to improve with age.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2012 Great stout from Clown Shoes. Tried it from bottle (bomber). This one is a really great mix of malt flavors with a bit of hop spice and liquor thrown in to the aroma/taste. Far superior to their other stout (vampire slayer) IMO. Chocolate is at the forefront here, in both aroma and taste. It starts off as almost an adult chocolate milk. After that the roasty and hoppy tastes come forward, and they mix well.

Black beer with a frothy, brown head. Strong aromas of dark coffee. This one is better than the Vampire Slayer impy also brewed by Clown Shoes. Tastes of dark chocolate, dark coffee bitterness, some molasses, and has a nice hop profile which works pretty well here. Ends on a bitter chocolaty/hoppy note. Chalky, and a bit dry. ABV is a monster, and it makes itself known in this boozy beer. Not bad.

Bottled 660ml (PBF, bought from New York)
Opaque black color, small brown head. Coffee and licorice in the nose, nice toastyness. Full-bodied. Lots of coffee in the flavor, licorice, warming alcohol. Liquerish and powerful. Good.

omhper (24352) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottled at PBF. Very black, miniscule head. Aroma of extremely roasted coffee and grapefruit. Sweet with drying heavily roasted malt. Clean, hard mouthfeel. Soap and coffee. Powerful but harsh. Inky bitter finish. Less is sometimes more.

Braudog (6518) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Bottle. Yes, this looks like a Russian Imperial Stout ... deep black with a reddish tinge, a thin tan overcast. The aroma is rife with sweet, bitter baking chocolate and alcohol. It drinks with a hint of fireplace smokiness asserting itself right up front. The roasted, bitter dark chocolate lingers in the back ground. Lots going on here, but doesnt quite come together with the artistry needed to carry so much color. Then again, the more I drink the better it gets. (#4709, 7/26/2012)

65 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark brown with a decent tan head that fades leaving a little lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, subtle smoke, and a hint of hops. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, a little smoke, bitter hops. Has a bitter finish with some warming alcohol.

650 mL bottle. Looks the part, although the small, brown head doesnt last long. The aroma has powdered cocoa, black ju-jubes, a hint of mocha and a touch of smoke. Surprisingly, no booze in the nose. The flavour is not as interesting, but even more noteworthy is the surprisingly thin body. Not that its actually thin, but a 12.5% beer should feel bigger. Add some oatmeal in there, people! Not bad, though. Dont see how age will help this one, as the alcohol is already well hidden, and the flavours are on the subdued side.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - JUL 12, 2012
22oz bottled March 2012. Served at cellar temperature.

Pours black with a three finger brown head that takes forever to recede, leaving sheets and spots of lacing behind.

Aroma features chocolate, heavily roasted if not burnt malts, some coffee, alcohol, and then a lot of hops for the style. Very good strength.

Flavor is dark roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, a bit burnt/smoky, strong earthy hop bitterness, moderate sweetness, a bit of alcohol on the finish, but surprisingly subdued considering the 12.5% ABV. The alcohol is more apparent on the nose than in the flavor.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a little thinner than some Imperial Stouts, a bit grainy at times? Strong carbonation.

This is definitely a very hoppy Imperial Stout, somewhere between that style and a Black IPA. Not very complex, but quite tasty. Gotta give it credit for hiding such a high alcohol content so well, oh and for having a kick-ass name, too.
