Clown Shoes Blaecorn Unidragon
Oooh boy! Russian Imperial Stouts are bad ass, plain and simple. Clown Shoes has never made a beer I didn’t like and their labels and names are as awesome as their beers. This is freaking unicorn dragon beast thing. Like, I can’t even comprehend the majesty and bad-assery of this creature.
Aaaaanyway, this is a big beer — 12.5% ABV, probably because a unidragon needs more than some little session beer to get his buzz on. It pours with a deep brown color, with a hint of red, like the blood of every unidragon non-believer slain by the unidragon. It also had a nice tan head on top.
It had a very malty, chocolatey aroma, with a few hints of the hops. It had a semisweet front, and a very creamy body. A smooth, but hefty mouthfeel. It had a hoppy, dry finish, more so than most RIS, I’d reckon. I also picked up a few notes of toffee, chocolate, and nuts.
It was absolutely stunning. Like, you know when you’re watching a funny movie, and one scene is just SO FUNNY that you have to pause it so you don’t miss anything, but then the rest of the movie is kind of boring because it can’t live up to that one scene? That’s what Blaecorn Unidragon will do to other beers.
I want another one right now. Why does beer have to cost money?Similar Beers
