4.2/5  rDev +2.2%

Appearance-(3.75) Pitch black with very think mocha head produced. Tons of sediment at the bottom.

Aroma- (4) Roasted malt and dark chocolate evident at first. Some whisky, sweet, syrup aromas in there too.

Taste- (4.25) Dark chocolate and roasty malts big at first like the nose. In the middle the whisky is most noticeable, which then helps transition into a sweeter finish. As a whole this get sweeter as it warms up, which ends up knocking this out of balance. I'd prefer to have the roasty/dark choclate qualities to balance the whisky sweetness. Alcohol is slightly noticeable at first, but subsides quickly.

Feel- (5) Thick and chewy, but not too lingering at all. Very nice mouthfeel to this. Full bodied with a decent amount of carbonation as well.

Overall- (4.2) I was a bit confused as my label said prairie noir, but it clearly was the coffee noir bottle design. I'm assuming a misprint must have happened. A little confusing, but that doesn't detract from this being a great beer. Great whisky flavors with a roasty malt and chocolate that sweeten as its warms, which really is the only down sides as it loses the roasty/bitter balance from the beginning.

On tap at lil Woodrow's

Tan head with a lot of lace. Color is black.

Flavor profile: this beer has coffee all throughout the beer. A lot of roasted malts. Espresso and chocolate. Oak and vanilla. Some caramel. Molasses and dark fruits.

Mouthfeel: smooth, but roasted. Full bodied. Ends dry.

Overall, a very tasty beer. A tad too much roast, but great coffee flavors. The whiskey flavors show nicely which I like.
