4.44/5 rDev +11%
Pours an effervescent ebony with 2+ fingers of mocha colored head. Sheets of lacing & very nice head retention
S: Vanilla & Bourbon
T: Follows the nose, caramel, dryness & faint roastyness up front, plus dark chocolate. More vanilla, a bit of caramel with dryness, a touch of smoke & booze as this warms, plus more oaky dryness. Finishes with vanilla & caramel sweetness & oakyness
MF: Chewy, low carbonation, so smooth
Drinks extremely easy, the ABV is extremely well masked, another great stout from Prairie,. I will pick some up to age if I get the chance

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.

3.18/5 rDev -20.5%
375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Black with some transparency. Small khaki head.
Smell - Tons of vanilla. Milk chocolate. A little bit of barrel, but not a ton.
Taste - Vanilla right up front. Dark chocolate. Oaky. There's a sharp, almost green pepper flavor. Off-putting.
Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Medium body.
Overall - The aftertaste isn't pleasant, but it does smell incredible.
