Angry BeastAngry Beast

Brewed by:
Clown Shoes
Massachusetts, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.00%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

4.03/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a duvel glass

A: pours black with a nice finger and a half of chocolate head that dissapates nicley. Excellent lacing left on the glass... This looks deep dark and delicious.

S: a very nice blend of smoke and chocolate... A hint of woodyness as well along with a touch of bourbon... Some toffe, alcohol and light caramel notes in there as well... Not as heavy on the burbon as I would have liked... But it Is still a damn good smelling

T: a nice round light smokiness through the body of the beer, along with a nice chocolatyness, the burbon is mild again here but slightly noticeable, bringing a light note of vanilla, wood, and burbon... There are also notes of caramel and toffe here, overall this is a very well balanced beer and the flavor profile works really well, quite delicious.

M: medium/heavy body with medium/low carbonation, this brew has a smooth creamy/velvety texture, and is very drinkable for 11% abv, a touch of light bitterness on the finish...

O: this is a damn good stout... I wish the barrel aged component brought a little more burbon to the table, but perhaps that would have thrown off the elegant balance this beer maintains. I found this brew very enjoyable and would recommend it to any fan of good Imperial stouts....

4.08/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours pitch black with a good sized and very dense chocolate milk colored head. Lacing left behind is an almost completely unbroken wall. Nice.

S: Hickory smoke. Touch of bourbon with a little toffee but not much. Sweet, creamy milk chocolate mainly. Hints of char and coffee bean but the chocolate dominates here.

T: Again, hickory smoke up front with just a touch of bourbon, very mild. Turns into anise and chocolate in the middle. Finishes with big bitter char and smokiness.

M: Heavy but quite smooth and creamy.

O: Not bad, honestly it tastes a lot like regular Vampire Slayer. Very smoky throughout. Only the lightest hint of bourbon, if that. The Blaecorn seems to add a bit of chocolate and creaminess, that's about it. Otherwise it's about 80% Vampire Slayer.
