look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A: Like Prairie Bomb, this pours out thick as sludge. It differs in that this actually retains its brown head for a decent amount of time and laces somewhat down the side of the glass. 4

S: The rum barrel aging has certainly changed this beer. The aroma is much more sweet. Spiced rum definitely takes over, with notes of vanilla, caramel, booze, and (strangely only once agitated) wood. It seems to be a bit disjointed. 3

T: My first question is...where did the peppers go? All of the balance that Prairie Bomb! offered is gone because the heat is non-existent, except for the moment that you swallow the beer. The taste is very much focused on the rum, which allows for the sweetness to take over. Chocolate, roast, and slight vanilla mostly. 3.5

MF: The body is roughly as thick as Prairie Bomb!, but the increased amount of booze and negatively impacted balance makes for a minus in the drinkability category. 4

Value: At $15 for this 12oz bottle, I'd say it was too much for its worth. Pay less and get a better beer for Prairie Bomb!. 3

O: This was a pretty big disappointment. I really loved the base beer for this, and thought that it could only get better. The barrel aging muted the base, bringing it back to the pack. It amazes me that Pirate Bomb! has a better trading value than Prairie Bomb!, because anyone who has tried both should be able to attest to the fact that Prairie Bomb! blows it out of the water. I'm sad to think that there could be this much more Prairie Bomb! on the market, because I want to drink it all. 3
