4/5 rDev -2.7%
Served from an ice cold bottle into a glass, such class I know.
Appearance: dark as night, cant see through it. A half inch tan head with an aggressive pour.
Smell: Smell of chocolate and a Smokey smell, might be the vampire stakes.
Taste: Bitter, chocolate and Smokey, like sucking on a chocolate dipped piece of wood.
Mouth feel: Very thick and right on track for a imperial stout.
Overall: I am a fan of clown shoes, but this is just a little strong even for me, I'm going to say its the Smokey aspect. It's worth a bottle to try and clown shoes makes many fine beers.

4.15/5 rDev +1%
Bomber side-by-side comparison of Vampire Slayer (VS) @10% ABV and Blaecorn Unidragon (BU) @ 12.5% ABV. No visible dates but purchased on the same day. Poured into New Belgium Globes.
L: Both the VS and BU pour dark brown to black, VS maybe a little darker, but they are the same in the glass. Beige head on both is the same, okay retention on both.
S: Here is where the biggest difference shows through. BU has strong roast in the aroma, chocolate and light sweetness. VS has much more sweetness and a more full aroma without the strong and slightly rough bitterness of BU, also get some vanilla and similar flavors, maybe from the smoked malt.
T: BU is actual pretty moderate despite the stronger aroma, the roast and hops play a prominent role. VS is a lot sweeter than than BU
M: BU is a little thinner with less carb. Neither is overly full feeling.
O: Both very good and somewhat different imperial stouts.
