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

Hoppy Feet guy extinguished evil via a sharp stake through an undead chest. Now, Blaecorn Unidragon, mad as hell, has expelled another blood sucker from Earth. No, we do not like Vampires, but we love Vampire Slayer, which was blended with bourbon barrel aged Blaecorn Unidragon to beget Angry Beast.

A-pours a black with brown edges and a nice 1in tan head. Head dissapates with 1min leaving a strong lacing thought the glass.
S- Chocolate malts and what seems to be bourbon barrels.
T- Im getting some smoke that ive never gotten from this beer before. nice malts on this one.
M- mild to medium with a solid carbonation.
O- I fell like this one went a little downhill since the last time i tried it. still a solid offering.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a slightly darker colored fluffy 1 finger head with big bubbles popping but fades slowly otherwise, nice lacing and nice legs to go with it, pitch black thick beer.

Nose is pure dark malts, black malt and roast mostly I think. It has a light baker's chocolate and fluffy nougat as well. Some roasted malts, with a bit of coffee, caramel and very dark crystal malts, syrupy dark sweet malts, some booze, and a bit of earthy spicy hops.

Taste starts with syrupy semi sweet rich dark malts. Some fluffy nougat and caramel out front, with dark heavy crystal malts, and a bit of a chalky black malt char. The black malt really dominates, with that powdery char flavor, wants to go acrid but doesn't quite get there. A bit of cocoa nibs in there combines with the chocolate for a little candy bar action, with some roasted malt bringing light coffee as well. Booze is there with some warmth but doesn't seem like 11% as the big malts and some sweetness balance well. Hops bring light earthy and hint spicy flavors, with some bitterness, but just as much bitterness coming from the charred malts. Finish is sticky and syrupy but fairly dry, lingering dark malts, little syrupy, with light cocoa and caramel, little black malt and char as well, a bit more of the spicy hops coming through with medium bitterness lingering.

Mouth is fuller bodied, rich and thick, decent fluffy carb, some warming booze that is hidden fairly well.

Overall OK but not great. More like a hodgepodge of lots of dark malts just thrown together, which gets borderline acrid and overpowering. A bit of chocolate and caramel saves it for being at least a decent beer, and fluffy carbonation and nougat flavors are nice as well. Hops don't destroy either which is nice. The booze is hidden well for 11% as it's balanced fairly well. However, just a meh kinda beer overall, and gets boring very quickly.
