12 oz bottle poured into pint glass.

A - Pours a pitch black motor oil with 2 fingers of dark brown / chocolate head.

S - I get tons of vanilla instantly in the smell, along with some chocolate and caramel sweetness.

T - The taste is much like the aroma, with sweet vanilla at the forefront followed by sweet chocolate and caramel. The flavor is reminiscent of creme brulee. I'm pleasantly surprised at the amount of vanilla flavor; it's not subtle at all.

M - Thick and viscous, low-to-moderate carbonation. The alcohol is hidden very well.

O - Possibly my favorite Prairie beer. This is perfect for dessert, as the vanilla notes are absolutely fantastic.

This beer pours dark with a carmel head that dissipates eventually. It's beautiful and almost has a dark, dark, mahogany color when held to the light.

The smell is unbelievable with vanilla, chocolate, and a roasted note coming through.

The beer coats your mouth and is very smooth. You get a hit of chocolate and vanilla up front and the whiskey starts to set in as the beer finishes.

I have enjoyed a few of these and find myself enjoying them more each time I have one. The perfect stout.

A- dark brown/mahogany with a thin brown head that fades quickly.
S- vanilla, Irish whiskey, rye, pepper, oak, tobacco, with a bit of smokiness
T- vanilla, smoked grains, rye, harsh spices, bourbon, fire wood, bakers chocolate
M- thinner body for an imperial stout, medium carbonation.
O- pretty complex flavor and aroma. If you are expecting a sweet vanilla ice cream stout this is not the one. The only downfall is the thin body and weak head retention.
