4.18/5  rDev -3.7%

Second time having this one. Reviewed at Big Meadow Campground, Shenandoah National Park, VA. Full notes taken.

A- Stubby bottle is poured into a goblet with a thick, midnight black body. The head is dark and brown like cocoa with a frothy semi-thick consistency. Pretty good retention and a medium thick ring deposits spotty and webbed lace.

S- Strong coffee and chocolate and you can tell that it comes from both the malts and adjunct ingredients. Deeply roasted grains, caramel and some green chiles coming to mind. Rich.

T- The peppers pick up strength here and become one of the prominent elements of the brew with flavor but not a lot of heat. Cocoa nibs, vanilla and coffee are moderately strong and combine to be a dessert like force. Roast grains provide many flavors of their own that overlap with the adjuncts but they act to hold thr flavors together as a base.

MF- Thick but not overly so with a chewy creaminess and silky smooth texture. Carbonation right down the middle at a medium level allowing the decadent flavors to come out. Roast finish with just a hint of pepper heat.

Hmm, this is a tough one to review. In a way I really like the chiles but they might add just a bit too much flavor and are distracting to the very nice cocoa and vanilla decadence beneath. Personally I think its quite nice.

From notes.

A: Pours just an absolute black. Motor oil. Mocha head with excellent lacing. Retention is pretty minimal. Carbonation impossible to discern.

S: Cinnamon, spice, vanilla, some chipotle. Pretty much what the bottle says. Smells wonderful.

T: Very rich and very complex. Pepper heat at the tip of the tongue. This trends to a very rich and bitter espresso explosion. Huge amounts of chocolate are present before the pepper heat takes over again.

M: Thick and chewy, this beer feels every bit of the 13% abv. However, the alcohol heat was surprisingly lacking, or possibly masked by the peppers.

O: Incredible. While I still prefer the Bomb! by a small margin, this beer is amazing in it's own right.

Bottle courtesy of kantrauch on RB. Pours the deep, rich black with semi-fluffy mocha colored head that had some decent staying power. Head fades into thick collar, and heavy wisps. Aroma is mostly coffee and dark chocolate, with some cinnamon and a slight hint of vanilla peeking through as well. Taste is the chocolate up front, the chile right behind that, the coffee comes in after the chile heat fades and then the coffee fades back into the chile heat. I do not taste the vanilla. I also get a touch of smoked woodiness in the aftertaste. Body is lacking quite a bit IMHO. I like my stouts to have a huge, thick mouthfeel and this is a medium body, but has the nice low carbonation I enjoy in stouts. I enjoyed this beer very much; the aroma was enticing and hinted at what you could expect from the taste, without giving too much away.

4.14/5  rDev -4.6%

12 oz. bottle poured into pint glass
(4/1/14 printed on bottle ... I think ... a bit smudged)

L: motor-oil out of the bottle ... thick and black, light does not pass through; brown head of foam not too deep (1/4 inch); brown sandy sediment settles at the bottom

S: dark coffee ... coffee and coffee; burnt malt/burnt hops/burnt something ... it's a char-fest, very roasted; cinnamon; plenty sweet; in fact, as it warms it's all vanilla ... vanilla shake or vanilla ice cream

T: salty chocolate ... coffee; can't taste the alcohol as much as you can feel the burn; plenty of burnt malt with some of the bitterness coming from hops (?) ... it's got some bitter to it; not as sweet as the nose but the balance of bitter/sweet is still good

F: weighty but not overly syrupy with just enough carbonation to help you drink it; burn from the alcohol is always present

O: classic everything for a big stout: loads of coffee, huge bitter presence smoothed out by huge malt presence, sweet nose, some vanilla softness and so much alcohol you automatically settle in to sipping mode. i love it.

So here it is, my 600th review. Wow. Seems like a lot of time spent on beer (and it is), but I wouldn’t have it any other way. And to celebrate, here’s a collaboration between two recent favorites: Evil Twin and Prairie. Cheers.

Batch 1, green wax/plastic over the cap.

A: Black and thick, pouring like motor oil from the bottle. A menacingly dark, mocha head covers the top of the body with a layer of perfectly flat cream, but only for the first few moments after the pour; soon after, it falls under its own weight, leaving a raised ring on the outside of the glass and some wet, sandy lacing above. Looks absolutely diabolical.

S: Spectacular. Cocoa and coffee come blazing out of the glass with a beautiful gourmet aroma – not sweet or candy-like, but earthy and grounded – along with the equally gorgeous nuances of chili powder, peat, flint, brandy, and black strap molasses. Just about as inviting as a stout nose can be.

T: What a beer. Each sip is a mouthful of fudgy brownie batter, roasted pecan, chocolate-covered espresso bean, vanilla...I could drink this all day. The palate is expansive and densely-packed, sure, but the balance is uncanny: its chocolaty sweetness is subdued under a slow-burning dryness, a bitter smoke and prickly, hoppy pine that condenses to take over the back end of the palate. Scattered throughout are bits of added complexity, as well: notes of old oak, blackberry preserves, maple, and chili pepper. Smoky, slightly dry and chalky aftertaste, a testament to the thick roasted malts.

M: Wonderfully milky, but with an interesting heat from the chilies; it warms on the way down with alcohol and that subtle fieriness. Mild carbonation starts to bubble up toward the end, but on the whole, this beer remains full-bodied and rich.

O: A treat for any beer drinker. Just beautiful. I think I’d take this over Prairie Bomb, since this one has a denser, more satisfying texture. Truly world-class, as are both of these breweries – I’m very glad to have this as a milestone review. Here’s to 600 more as satisfying as this!
