Bottled February 2013.

Pours pitch black with very little carbonation, if any. The aromas in this one are nice. Big malts,, raisin, ash, hops and slight alcohol presence. Same goes through in the taste. Malts hit big in this one with notes of deep dark roasted coffee beans, deep dark chocolate and deep dark malts. This is a deep dark beer befitting of its fantastic name and label. The alcohol is hidden well in this one but it will creep up on you. Don't underestimate the Blaecorn Unidragon.

Poured into a snifter. Pitch black with a small head. Smell is classic RIS: Chocolate and coffee. Smooth; not overly carbonated. Taste includes raisins and licorice. Complex malts. I really like Extremely angry beast, of which Blaecorn Unidragon is a component, so I thought that BU itself might suffer by comparison. However, it didn't disappoint.

Way too smokey. Tastes like someone extinguished a cigar in a decent stout.

22oz bottle into snifter. Bottle has some age, at least I year I think.

A: Pours a thick pitch black with two fingers of very soft and very dense looking dark tan head. Head took forever to slowly recede into a thick and lasting film.
S: Very potent notes of rich chocolate fudge and chocolate syrup dominate, with undertones of leather, anise, and slight booze. There might just be a hint of vanilla as well.
T: Again, chocolate malt is rich, decadent, and lingers long into the aftertaste. Flavors of peat, anise, and vanilla mix nicely. The finish has hints of leather and very mild booze.
M: Nice thick body, slick and smooth mouthfeel with soft low carbonation. There is no heat from the alcohol at all.
O: Extremely thick and decadent. This definitely hits the spot of you are in the mood for a solid, heavy, imperial stout. Well done.

Appearance: Oily black with a dark brown creamy fluffy head. It's actually a neat color for a head...it's really dark.

Aroma: It has an odd horse blanket and old house aroma...not what I would expect from a RIS...it is interesting but again it's not what I would want in this beer.

Taste: Burnt acrid charcoal, some raw coffee grounds. This probably tastes like what a fire breathing dragon mare's mouth would taste like after a night of rampaging and partying. Again there is this funky horse blanket taste. Maybe that's the point? I don't know. The initial roasted burnt flavors are there, and they're ruined at the end by the out-of-place flavors of attic mildew.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel on this beer is awesome. It's thick, it's present, it's right in your face. Perfect.

Overall: It's not something I'd buy again, despite the awesome label art. It just doesn't work for me. It's like some cross between a brett beer and a RIS.
