4.24/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Gold wax - no date

A. Pour yielded 2 fingers of cocoa colored head. Decent lacing and head retention. Color is black and no light gets through.

S. Dark Roasted Coffee and Whiskey. Slight Dark Chocolate

T. Black Coffee. Whiskey and Vanilla. The barrel isn't very obvious. Bitter Finish.

M. Medium mouth feel and carbonation. Dry finish. Was hoping for a thicker body since it is barrel aged

O. The coffee is a bit overpowering in my opinion. I don't typically like coffee itself but enjoy coffee beers. This one has too coffee forward for me and though it is barrel aged, it doesn't seem apparent in the mouth feel or taste for some reason. I prefer BCBCS

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.

Bottle from trade. Pours black with a creamy mocha colored head. Aroma of earthy coffee, some molasses and roast, a bit of whiskey booze. Flavor is a big punch of spicy coffee with light whiskey notes that are more sweetness than whiskey flavor, and a lingering oakiness. There is some metallic apple note going on here and I wonder if this is contaminated a bit. Slightly astringent and lingering bitter. Medium bodied with pretty high carbonation for the style. Very coffee forward which is nice--like straight coffee grounds--but no sign of the other characteristics I would expect here. Overall worth drinking but maybe not seeking out.

Bottle into TG gold chalice.

Pours thick, black, with a nice fluffy roasted peanut color head.

Aroma is,,, coffee. Coffee pot, spent coffee grains, with a bit of fruity coffee undertones. Where is the whiskey? Get some oak, dark bitter chocolate, and very old tobacco as well.

Taste is coffee, old bakers chocolate, light woodsy oak, and brief stale tobacco. Also get a slight fruitiness bit disappears just as soon as it hits.

Thick, pretty dry with just a touch of sweetness.

It's pretty good but either I'm over stouts or this just didn't hit my soft spot. Yes there is coffee but the whiskey barrels are no where to be found. If you put whiskey barrels on the label people are going to want to taste some trace of that whiskey/boozy presence. Enjoyed Wine Noir more than this. And I must say again, Prairie should just stick to saisons and Brett beers. Those are much better than their stout iterations.
