Porcine Unidragon pours out with the appearance of thick motor oil, topped with a light brown head. There is quite a bit of lacing on the glass after each sip. The aroma is fantastic, with dark chocolate malts, vanilla bean, and lots of bourbon. After tasting, I found that the most striking aspect was the dark fruit esters - raisins and figs. The bourbon was pronounced as well with the beechwood barrel woodiness complimenting it nicely. The finish was very dry and smoky, with an inkling of citrus-y hops in there. The beer had a velvety mouth feel that was appropriate for an IS. Overall, a very decadent treat!

A: awesomeness, dark, nice inch of head, sticky lacing.

S: oaky, boozy, smoky. can't wait to....

T: wow. nice complete coating, slight toffee, caramel, but with a back end bite of oak, and bourbon. Strong flavor.

M: Nice, coating, full, tannic. great beer.

O: Awesome find. Glad I bought some to age, and some to share.

22oz, October 2012 release
DFH signature glass

A: Pours deep brown leading to black color. Collar of light tan for the head. Reddish hues on edges. Some lacing sheeting is evident with the swirl. There are some alcohol feet on this one.

S: Really nice smelling beer here. Vanilla actually comes first to me, from the aging. Then you get that meaty smoke character. There is a touch of booze coming through, but not overpowering. Then you pull more of that oak. Dark chocolate hints. Really inviting.

T: Bitter dark chocolate up front. Meshing really well with the vanilla and oak character from the wood aging. Then those BBQ smoked malts. It's by no means overly campfire or meaty bacon like flavor. It's just the right touch to add to it. Blends really nicely with the other flavors. Alcohol is hidden extremely well here. You get a little burn on the back end, but that is pretty much it.

M: Full bodied.

This bottle, a find in a recent US road trip, has some incredible characteristics. However it is much more boozy that the 12.5% abv would represent. Not that the booze is in the nose or even finish, but certainly in the aftertaste it is pure alcohol. A little thin for an IS. However the beechwood smoke was outstanding, and the bourbon is well integrated in the flavour. Dangerously drinkable.

Light proof black beer with a good sized brown colored head.

Smells of berry and patent malt with some caramel. Chocolate, coffee and toasted grain with roasted nuts. Scent of ethanol and in that a light plum aroma.

Starts out sweet with a smoky and slightly bitter after taste. Stays sweet mostly tastes of smoke and mocha. Definitely a bit boozy in the mouth. Little bit of a berry flavor here and a little plum brandy but this is quite heavy on the dark roasted grain.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a good RIS but not my favorite.

Thanks to mhksuccess for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, smoked malt, campfire, and alcohol. Taste is much the same with a cocoa flavor and bourbon kick on the finish. There is a medium amount of roasty and smoky bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a nice smoke presence all around.

Poured from a bomber into a Duvel tulip

A- pours black with a two finger dark tan head that sticks around for awhile. Nice looking beer, that's for sure

S- slight bourbon and a smoky, meaty aroma in the nose. Awesome, but mild

T- incredibly balanced. Slight smokey/meaty taste (but not overwhelming like in most smoked beers), slight hints of the bourbon barrel coming through, nice bit of chocolate, and a slight bit of coffee...not too much of anything, just a perfect blend.No booziness either. Amazing

M- huge body, very viscous. Unreal.

O- this is a fantastic beer. My first offering from Clown Shoes, and I'm a big fan. Well done.

Just got the regular Unidragon as an extra a week or so ago, now I get this one, what a coincidence! Thanks to djmichaelk for sending me this as an extra.

Looks pretty nice, dark with a nice head, pretty normal stout appearance.

Smells of dark roasty malt and smoke character, maybe some hop bitterness. Hoping this isn't super smoky. Not smelling much barrel character.

Tastes fairly nice. Good balanced malt character, sweet but roasty as well. Smoky but not overwhelmingly so. Not getting much barrel here either, have to think about it to even notice it. This is drinkable despite the smoke which I really don't like.

This is a nice beer, I don't like smoky stuff or I'm sure I'd like it way more. I prefer the regular Blaecorn Unidragon but I like this okay.

A: Pours a dark, creamy black with a finger of tan head that fades quickly.

S: Hints of bourbon, oak and smoked malt. There's a thick, smoky BBQ/meaty presence that's really quite interesting.

T: Smoked malt, bitter bakers chocolate, bourbon and vanilla notes. The smoked malt and bourbon lend a bacon-like character that's pretty unique.

M: Thick bodied, with nice carbonation and a silky feel. Very drinkable.

O: Overall, this is a really nice smoked, bourbon barrel stout. Worth the price of admission.

22 ounce bottle - $11.99 at Bullock's Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.

Appearance: As like the Blaecorn, it pours out an unassuming, black body with one inch (and only one inch) of tan suds. A thin glaze of lacing on the way down.

Smell: Slight smokiness from the charred, well-roasted malts edged by dark chocolate with a rather high cocoa content, scant dark fruits, smoked black licorice, mild-mannered resinous-traced hops, and quality bourbon.

Taste: Roasted, burnt malts with some sweetish, sugary treacle and malted milk balls covered in dark bitter chocolate. Moderate smokiness from the beechwood-smoked malts. An ebb and flow of sweet bourbon with notes of oak, brown sugar, coconut. Floral, resinous hops. Medium-plus bitterness. A handful of burnt raisins. Some alcoholic heat in there. Occasionally, you get an additional blip of sugar. Roast, brown sugar, bourbon-soaked brownies on the warming finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. A bit chewy, a bit sticky.

Overall: The hard, harsh roastiness and heavy hoppiness of the Blaecorn is smoothed over quite a bit here in the Porcine, making the presentation much more enjoyable. Where, with the Blaecorn, I would be unlikely to revisit the beer, I could cheerfully go for another dose of this stuff.

22oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Pitch black with absolutely no light penetration. 1 finger of tan head that dissipates quickly.

Smoked oak, dark chocolate, char, earth and hints of bourbon.

Dark chocolate and roasted barley. Light notes of smoked meat and fire wood. Tons of caramel and espresso. Hints of prune and vanilla. Some smooth bourbon, earth and charcoal on the finish. Oak lingers.

Medium-full bodied, silky, smooth, dry and warming.

The bourbon barrel adds a great deal of depth without overpowering the base beer. Surprisingly smooth for 12.5%. I'm quite impressed with this Clown Shows offering.

Finally have time to enjoy this bottle and sit for a review. Lots of interesting things happening in this beer.

First a good looking Imp Stout. Sturdy, creamy dark tan head with lots of staying power. Clumps of lace left in the glass. Deep dark brown with no light getting through in any way.

You can smell the smoked malt and it adds depth to the barrel notes. This is right above a bit of ash and bourbon. Nice aroma.

Smoke, Black Licorice, Ash, bourbon, wood, almost a slight menthol flavor…. A bot of alcohol at the end. The smokey finish blends nicely with the bourbon flavor and adds a dimension of depth.

Thanks to Alex (Masterski) for nudging me to get to this bottle. Perfect for a wintry evening.

Poured into a large brandy snifter. Pours black with a somewhat quickly dissipating finger length light tan head. The beer is opaque, but some tiny bubbles are visible on the edge of the glass. There is some lacing left on the side of the glass during consumption. The smoked malt aroma brings some recollection of Schlenkerla, which is to be expected due to the use of beechwood smoked malt. I also get some chocolate, coffee, bourbon, and some sweetness. There are some bourbon notes and the smokiness from the malt up front. I get some of that coffee, chocolate, and some of that malt sweetness. The alcohol is forward, but it's tough not to expect that at 12.5% ABV. There's also a touch of meatiness there from the beechwood smoked malt. The body is full and the beer coats the mouth well with each sip. The carbonation is on the lower end. This is an excellent beer.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter. Bottled on 10/11/12

A - Pitch black with almost no head that fades quickly.

S - A touch of smoke and quite heavy on the booze

T - The smell worried me, but having a sip allayed those fears -- this is tasty. It starts smokey and finishes with a nice dark chocolate taste that has bourbon overtones. As it warms, the smoke settles a bit, with vanilla, bourbon, and chocolate coming through.

M - Smooth and rich, with low carbonation. Not very dry on the finish, which I like.

O - This is a tasty brew. Smokier than I'd expect for the style it's listed as on BA, but lives up to its description on the bottle with the Beechwood Smoked malts. My only real complaint is the nose -- I wish more of the chocolate and vanilla aspects of the bourbon came through rather than just booze.

I'm a hater. Haters gotta hate. It is in my natural instinct. I WANT to hate, I search out things to hate. I wanted to hate clown shoes. I 1st had Tramp Stamp, it was good (see my review). I moved on and had several other Clown Shoes beers, all better than average (Blarcorn Unidragon, Gangis Pecan, Miracle). Now this, how pretale am I supposed to hate a product like this?
Inky black, tan head, barely any lacing. Thick. Aroma is lacking somewhat. What is there smells boozy and hot, but also vanilla and smoke. Oh, smokey and so full of bourbon barrel wellness, burnt marshmellows and chocolate. Maybe a little to hot from fusel alcohol, but there is balance too. A fine dark chocolate aftertaste. A rather thick mouthfeel. Not dry, but not sweet. For the style could/should be a bit more dry. I'm really excitted about this beer. I'd buy more of it. I think it is amazing that a brewery is putting out a beer of this caliber that you can walk into a store and pick up off the shelf and buy. God if my hater friends read this my hater card would be revoked.

Bottle shared at Tom's place. I'm a terrible person and can't remember who brought this. Served in a mini-pint glass.

A - Lightly tanned foam settles to a thin cap, thick collar, and minimal lace. Very, very dark brown body.

S - A mix of smoke, oak, and bourbon. It's perhaps a touch fusel and boozy, with a hint of green apple in there. There's a touch of malt sweetness, but this is heavy on char and roast flavors.

T - The taste has a bit more dark chocolate and sweet malt flavors, with vanilla, maple-glazed ham, hickory, smoke, and campfire. Much less boozy than the aroma, with a nice balance between roasty and sweeter flavors.

M - Smooth, creamy, and not very dry for a 100% barrel-aged beer. Full body, lower carbonation, and not much alcohol heat. Quite good.

D - Once you get past the mildly boozy aroma, this is quite good. I suspect it will be even better in six months or so. Hope we get this one in Chicago, as it's another well-made stout from Clown Shoes, a brand I can actually purchase without having to fight off bandwagon beer fans and speculators. Obviously not a beer that you're going to drink in massive quantities, but really nice in small quantities.

Pours light fluffy 1/4 finger mocha colored head that fades fairly quickly, typical for that high abv, super dark pitch black beer.

Nose is great, some smoke starts out right away, a touch of smoked malt and light smoldering beachwood like smoke, then ridiculous chocolate, mostly cocoa nibs and darker chunk chocolate melting, milk chocolate, light powdered cocoa too, light roast, little chalky, caramel, nice nutty toffee, etc. Then barrel, nice vanilla barrel oak, light bourbon but def present. The more I nose the more the smoke goes away the more a myriad of malts seem to present themselves.

Taste is very nice too, starting with big dark malts, plenty of chocolate malt, cocoa nibs, melting dark chocolate and even bakers, powdered cocoa, and the works. Next comes the caramel and toffee, light nutty and semi sweet syrupy malt base, with a light fluffy nougat like, and little creamy. Smoke is there again but lighter, smoked malt flavor for sure but doesn't overpower, light smoked beachwood like again. Later a bitterness comes through, mostly from the darker malts, light earthy like hops. In the back end is the barrel, light oak and nice vanilla, light bourbon that gets mostly overpowered by the malts and seems more of an after thought. As it dries on the finish, little sticky, touch of booze, a light bitter roasty malt, earthy bitter hops, light barrel char, wisp of smoke, long lingering chocolate.

Mouth is fuller bodied, rich, slight creamy, light warming booze, little sticky syrupy, decent carb.

Overall quite nice. I should snatch up some more before it disappears. Nice malts, great chocolate, nice use of light smoke without acrid roast, good barrel addition although wish the barrel and bourbon was a bit more.

Poured into a pint glass, this beer is very dark, almost black in body and is topped off whit a very healthy dark tan head that starts off about two fingers thick and slowly thins into a layer of fluffy pillows of bubbles. Very good lacing all around. I can pick up some dark fruits, caramel, roasted hops and malts and chocolate in this beer. It has a medium to thick mouth feel and is rather tart at first, grape and figs are present when it hits the sides of your tongue. Mild clove flavors after you breathe, hops a more present as it hits the back of your mouth. This is a pretty good beer over all.

I might was well cut to the chase-- I love this stuff.
OK, the hints of ham is a little un-nerving.. but after the bomber bottle is empty
and the church key is flipping the top on the next, the ham-like flavor note is something of a signature not a detriment.

It's not just a ham-note, the everything-- raisins, malt, hops, licorice, coriander...

Alright-- the resultant hang-over is worth it-- this beer is glorious!

The end.

Pitch black and thick. Small brown head with decent retention and some nice lacing.
Smells of vanilla, caramel, and oak. A bit of a meaty scent as well, but somehow not off putting.
More vanilla, caramel, and oak on the tongue. A bit of smokiness. Surprisingly smooth for such a big beer. Thick body and medium carbonation.

I wouldn't be surprised to see this beer get some major hype in the upcoming months. It's delicious and very affordable for a bourbon barrel aged stout.

Clown shoes porcine unidragon

This is Blaecorn Unidragon, but made with beechwood-smoked malt and aged in bourbon barrels. Poured into a snifter.

Thick and black as ink. A very thin cap of fizz pops away after a few seconds.

Maple syrup, vanilla, crumbled cocoa, toasted oak, campfire smoke, raisin, alcohol. A quality blend of aromas.

The smoke is more pronounced in the flavor. Huge beechwood notes and burnt oak in the front give way to chocolate and a touch of dark fruits in the middle. Smoke rises again at the swallow, along with a fairly pronounced alcohol flavor.

Alcohol fumes in the nose, and numbness on the tongue. Thick and viscous medium-full body with mild, prickly carbonation. Breaks into a bit of fizz as it moves.

Good stuff. Could use just a bit more sweetness, more barrel, a little less smoke. Better enjoyed in quick sips.

22 oz. bottle poured into a CCB snifter. Bottled on 10/11/12.

A - Pours midnight black with nearly a finger of almond head. Shows good retention for a beer this big. The thick halo of carbonation that remains, leaves a nice tiered lacing as I drink.

S - Smells of vanilla, huge burnt oak, black coffee, and single malt bourbon. Molasses and candied figs add a rich quality to the aroma.

T - Starts with sweet toffee and vanilla. Oak hits midpalate, offering a nice drying bitter character. Chocolate and bourbon on the finish with a smokey sweet aftertaste. The flavors are in your face and work very well.

M - Medium-heavy body with mellow carbonation. A nice smooth feel.

O - I am a fan of Blaecorn, so I was excited to see the BA version on the shelf. I think this version is a bit sweeter than the original, and despite the addition of smoked malt, it doesn't have the same level of burnt flavors. The barrel adds an interesting dynamic to this beer, and it maintains great bourbon and oak flavors without being over the top. This one holds up pretty well against the highly coveted BA Stouts out there, without having to jump through hoops to get it. I am glad I picked up a few, so I can see what a year or two does to this beer. I highly recommend it for bourbon beer enthusiasts.

A: Pitch black at the center and brownish at the edges of the glass. Pours with a pretty dense and big mocha head that has excellent retention and leaves a bit of lacing.

S: Vanilla up front along with caramel notes probably both from the bourbon. A subtle smoky quality mixes in to create a wonderful aroma.

T: This truly is delicious and surprised the hell out of me because I usually don't like smoky stuff. I might have to rethink my theory that I would hate barfly. Nice smokiness up front, just the perfect strength that it doesn't overpower or go unnoticed. Then come the vanilla, toffee, caramel from the bourbon. A tiny bit of heat from the hefty 12.5% abv follows. I've tasted 8% stouts that taste boozier than this. Wow the alcohol is well hidden. I get a bit of oak on the back end and some of that smokiness comes back. I really can't believe how much I like the smoky component in this beer but it doesn't make me think of the porcine part of its name.

M: This one is par for the course. Thick, full bodied, low to moderate carbonation. It's good but CCB has spoiled me with regards to my benchmark 5.0 mouthfeel. Yes its a thick full body but its not the motor oil thick type that I love which takes it that extra .5 further and CCB has mastered.

O: Definitely recommend this one. I gave it a 4.5 initially but after thinking it over...its a smoked beer that I not only tolerate but absolutely love...that deserves a 5 from me. If you usually don't like smoky beers, I'd recommend you still try this one because I don't either. The smokiness is subtle yet just barely prominent enough that it integrates very well with the barrel characters which takes the taste to a whole new level. Its a little pricey but hell I'd rather buy more of these and drink less often, it really is perfectly executed. I had pretty much given up on Clown shoes after trying some of their other stouts and hoppy offerings but this one has opened my eyes to their greatness. I bought 2 of them just because it said bourbon barrel aged and was disappointed when I got home and found out they were smoked stouts. Turns out now I'm really glad I have another one and will probably go back for more because its just too good of a beer. Clown shoes, please make this one a yearly offering. Had I known it was going to be this good I would've left the Narwhal and double stout 4packs and picked up 2 more of these.

22oz bottle from Hop City (Atlanta, GA). 12.99. Bottled 10/11/12. Served in a Terrapin snifter.

Pours black with one finger creamed mocha head. Small spots of lace.

Interesting aromas of vanilla, bacon, smoke and cocoa. Different for sure.

Taste is a blend of bourbony vanilla, chocolate and meaty smoke followed by caramel, leather, tobacco, figs and booze. A bit hot but not more than expected for 12.5%.

Medium thick oily feel with moderate carbonation. Long sweet bourbon finish.

A truly different take on the original Blaecorn Unidragon. I'd still like to try the unaltered base recipe barrel aged but this was quite good. Sweet and smokey, this is another great stout from Clown Shoes that is worth a try.

A - How do you describe these quality stouts? After a while you run out of adjectives to describe the deep, awe-inspiring, inescapabale-even-by-light darkness. I'm running out of options. That being said, all the best ones apply to this brew. Motor oil is applicable, that shiny dark ultra black that color alone alludes to a high viscosity. The pours wells up a thin tan head from the fathoms of inky darkness. A head that stays for a spell, but not very long.

S - Bourbon! Oak! Whoa! The bourbon aroma literally slapped me in the face (okay figuratively but the difference is negligible). The bourbon-osity is accompanied by a toasted oak plank. It seems like the whole plank is in there, lending its bicameral flavors, rich roasted woodiness and smooth sensual vanilla notes. Incredible, and thats just the top tier. After the big elements, a second level of subtle notes emerge, chocolate, vanilla, toffee and caramel. A regular London Sweet Shop of aromas lending support.

T - The beer only adds to its character with the flavor. It mirrors the aroma pretty closely. The vanilla, chocolate, toffee flavors lay down a fine bedding for the humongous flavors that are capably, but barely retained. Those huge bourbon, oak, and toasted wood notes that make a beer incredible.

M&D&O - smooth of course, but palate heavy from the compendium of flavor notes. Thankfully, it's not as thick as it appears, which is a good thing. You can spend each sip savoring the flavorinstead of chewing your sludge. A redeeming beer for Clown Shoes for me. My second from their brewery and far superior than the first, this shelf section will now get more, and deserved, attention from me as I shop. Well Done!
