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

Some pimps walk. Some pimps strut. Some pimps run from the law. This pimp, a blend of Pimp and Knob Creek bourbon barrel aged Blaecorn Unidragon, rides between giant wings as they flap through a fiery night sky.

22oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Thanks for sharing Matt!

(A)- Pours a pitch black color. Produced a decent tan head with some retention.

(S)- A raisin forward nuttiness meets a subtle roasted body.

(T)- Very similar to the smell. Plenty of raisin with a nutty character amidst an underlying subtle roastedness. Slightest twinge of a hoppy citrus note.

(M)- A good carbonation level. Its an interesting mouthfeel with classic brown ale and stout characteristics. Bitter and hoppy with a leveled sweetness.

(O)- It is definitely interesting. It really reminds me of a hoppy stout and a brown ale mixed together.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a Pipeworks snifter.

A- pours near black with a 1" beige head. Some clumps and long trails of lacing.

S- chocolate, maple, light smoke/peat aroma, whiskey

T- toffee, dark chocolate, maple syrup, whiskey, light roasted coffee

M- medium body and carbonation. A little thin with some effervescence.

O- pretty tasty beer, nothing that wows you but has some chocolate, sweetness and whiskey notes.

Bottle from Binny's a while back. Served in a Hair of the Dog tulip.

A - Finger of dark tan foam settles to a thin cap, thicker collar, and a few specks of lace. Very dark brown body that is verging on black.

S - Surprisingly stout-forward in flavor. I was expecting more brown ale, as I figured the blend ratio was similar to Angry Beast, but this has a heft dose of char, vanilla, roast, and light oak. Overt bourbon flavor is somewhat muted, and there are brown ale flavors present in the periphery: nuts, milk chocolate, berries, and mildly fruit yeast.

T - The taste has a bit more balance between the blend components, with a mix of nuts, roasted malts, oak, light bourbon, and char in the finish. There's some of the overly burnt character of Blaecorn Unidragon for which I don't really care. Again, verging towards stout more than brown ale. Alcohol is quite well-hidden, which is a plus.

M - Moderate carbonation, medium-full body, sticky and chewy texture, and minimal alcohol warmth. Not a ton of oak or dryness here.

D - Solid, but not as good as Clown Shoes' other barrel-aged offerings. Chris and I had no problem putting down the 22oz bottle, but I'd buy Angry Beast or Porcine Unidragon over this one.

From Winooski's in August trip. Dark brown with big lace, with a mocha head. Chocolate, Cinnamon heat, even chile, roasty, hoppy. Coco. Good drinkability, softer than many bitter imperial stouts, they call it such on the bottle, it can pass as an IS.
