Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

In a world full of uncertainty, hardship, and people trying to hold us back, do we need Vampires, too? Clown Shoes says, “No! Die, monsters, die!”

Our second anniversary ale incorporates signature dark malts, holy water, and malt smoked locally with hickory, ash, and vampire killing stakes.

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.
