Green wax, 12 oz bottle, gifted from a friend.

Pours an opaque black with an initially large mocha head that semi-quickly fades to a thin ring. Adjunct heavy nose of coffee, light vanilla, green pepper, cocoa and booze. Mocha coffee and green pepper vegetable spice dominate the flavor with a hint of a smoother rich vanilla and mocha sweet stout underneath. Body is medium thick, slightly heavy carbonation and a thin finish. The green pepper spice and coffee isn't working for me in the flavor and this lacks the depth of the base stout of Hunahpu or even Mexican Cake (which isn't exactly a world beater).

Outstanding. Starts off heavy on the chocolate, but once it opens, its complexities shine. Would love more.

Picked this one up on a trade. Since I finished with Evil Twin last night I thought I would pick back up with them tonight in a different way and also enjoy one of my new favorite breweries Prairie.

Appearance: Dark black as night pour. Head is pretty large and caramel in color with a fairly aggressive pour. Although it dissipates pretty quickly after it sits for a few between sips.

Aroma: Chocolate and coffee immediately hits you. Earthy notes also come forward. I do not detect the vanilla quite as much as I would have expected based upon the advertisement on the bottle. It is very robust in the malty category as well.

Taste: Chocolate, malts, coffee and earthy chili peppers (which reminds me a lot of Bomb, and for good reason!) At first I did not detect the heat from the chili's but I did get the terroir that comes from the peppers themselves. Almost like you can taste the earth from which they were grown in this and is why I love Bomb so much. Anyway, after you drink it and let it sit on your tongue for a few minutes you get some heat on the back of the tongue and the throat. My only complaint if any is it is not as viscous as you would expect a beer of this nature to be, otherwise its very solid!

Overall: Yet another great beer from Prairie and even better than the other beers I have had from Evil Twin. Who should receive the accolades? I would place my bets on Prairie. I have not had Even More Jesus, so I cannot compare in that respect. Should I down the road obtain an EMJ I will revisit this one because I have another!

Thanks to hefman for knocking this off my wants, as I continue to search for a Prairie beer that lives up to their advance billing. 12 oz. bottle sipped before a nice Monday off.

The pour is black with a rich head that’s big for a large-bore brew. Most of the ingredients on the label show up in the nose too: very sweet malts, mild roast, touch of vanilla. No heat. Not bad, but pretty quiet given the promotional airs.

Bible Belt is like a small-beer version of Hunahpu’s. Starts off with deep, dark, sweet malts that are piled on one another like so many returnable cases, which is the best part of the beer. The advertised coffee & vanilla are faint enough to be undetectable without speciliazed scientific instruments. Chiles appear & save the beer from over-simplicity, but they’re less a taste than a back-of-the-throat warmth that builds & spreads groin-ward. 100% smooth, with zero alcohol presence at all. I’m enjoying drinking this, but feel like a bout of acid-reflux around 3AM is a distinct possibility.

For all the alcohol, malts, and adjuncts poured into this beer, it’s more Kylie Minogue than Bad Religion. Pretty good stuff.

Uber coffee forward. Thats all I really got from this but, nonetheless, it was very well made.

Poured from a 12oz into a tulip glass

A: Pitch black, with one finger of coffee hued head that slowly dissipates.

S: Huge coffee, bitter chocolate and cacao nibs up front, with some vanilla. At the end of the whiff I detect a faint spiciness, cayenne almost.

T: Roasty chocolate bitterness, raw vanilla bean, slightly tart finish with a lingering roastiness that lingers on the middle of the tongue.

M: Lighter than I would have expected, not too much body behind the flavor and color as first expected. The slightly tart, more crisp and thin than sweet and thick.

O: Very good beer, with a nice flavor profile that is easy drinking. Would snag this guy again if I ever saw it.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip. The brew appears black in color with a dark mocha brown head. Some spotty lace sticks to the glass.

The nose smells earthy and roasty with char, tobacco and mild citrus. A bit of herbal to vegetative component and more chocolate emerges as it warms up.

The taste is bitter cocoa with herbal hops and a bit of vegetative feel. Some char, roast, tobacco almost acrid with anise into the aftertaste.

This is medium bodied with modest carbonation. Its not a bad beer by any stretch but honestly it sounds better on paper than it actually smells/tastes.
