There is a new version of Clown Shoes Beer’s The Good, The Bad & The Unidragon on the way.
According to a label filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), the new incarnation of the 14 percent ABV Russian imperial stout will continue to use smoked malts sourced from Texas-based Blackland Malt Co., but also incorporates cold-brewed coffee from Blacksmith Coffee in Houston. Like the original version of The Good, The Bad & The Unidragon that was available exclusively in Texas, the new stout uses the Ipswich, Mass.-based company’s Blaecorn Unidragon (11.5 percent ABV) as its base.
Clown Shoes has incorporated Blacksmith Coffee into one of its beers before, namely the Texas-exclusive Hephaestus (14 percent ABV), a bourbon barrel-aged Russian imperial stout brewed with espresso that was released earlier this year.
The new version of The Good, The Bad & The Unidragon will be packaged in 22-ounce bottles. An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
