look: 3.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours an opaque black with a foamy super dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, coffee bean, and vanilla bean aromas. Taste is much the same with chocolate syrup and coffee bean flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness and a slight amount of chile heat on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with lots of rich and complex aromas and flavors that make this one a treat to drink. (649 characters)

this is supposedly even more jesus spiced like bomb. i get a lot less chili, and a bit less cocoa out of it, and i think the base stout is somewhat inferior to the original bomb, but this is enormously awesome beer just the same, and maybe a little more available out here in colorado. dark dark brown syrupy pour with just a frothing thee quarters inch of dark tan head, solid retention, but a mellow looking beer overall. thick, it sticks to the glass in sticky tails every time it moves. the nose is milk chocolate and booze, with some mild chili heat and a rather intense vanilla component. the base beer just isnt as big, or not as well rounded i should say, as the bomb, which i think serves as a most perfect launching pad for these multifaceted flavors. i want more chili here, and i want even more body. this is viscous, dont get me wrong, but it somehow lacks the vitality and the decadence of bomb, its just a bit flatter in overall presentation. complex sure, delicoius, hell yeah, but it just isnt as memorable or distinct. something about the yeast maybe, i dont know. worth the price though, and worth finding, its a great beer, especially if you have never had a bomb. (1,184 characters)

With the firm and chocolaty underpinnings of Evil Twin's Even More Jesus and the decoration of spice from Prairie Bomb, this collaboration ale seduces the taste buds with notions of spice cake and brownies as a "come to Jesus" meeting occurs with the palate and the soul

Similar to the "Bomb", the beer is jet-black. A light cocoa-like haze give impressions of density that's pushed higher by its sheer darkness. That density continues as its head billows with a marshmallowy visual texture and folds back into its dark abyss under its own voluminous weight. Its light carbonation forbade any meaningful lace- preferring rich port and brandy appearances to that of stout.

Smoothly roasty and chocolaty in aroma, the beer is full of espresso, heavy toast, molasses and walnuts. Umami and cake like scents stem into the sherry savory character to support the chocolate and coffee. Charred fruit, campfire, light pepper and a twinge of bourbon, vanilla and oak rounds out the nose as the first sip arrives.

Mouth coating with the roasted bitter taste of espresso, cocoa, toasted walnut and deep molasses- all round into a lush fudgy taste and texture. Its brownie-type cake sweetness is supportive and savory. The middle palate introduces a a glimpse into bourbon-soaked cherries, blackcurrant, raisins and a pep of aniseed become carry the taste into a finish of capsacin and alcohol spice.

Its full body is silky, creamy and bready-sweet. Is deeply embedded carbonation provides a marhmallowy texture as well as the sweetness wraps around the tongue and is slow to release. Its long and lingering sweetness rewards the taste buds far after the sip has finished, leaving flavors of chocolate covered espresso beans and light pepper trekking onward.

Similar to Bomb, Bible Belt is a deeper, sweeter and more brownie-like taste that's not as arid as the Bomb. Those Even More Jesus attributes support the spices to near perfection. (1,932 characters)

Thanks to and I think split with rudzud.

Super dark fluffy head fades very quickly, light lacing, super dark dark inky black color, inky long legs.

Nose is great, very nutty, dark choc and little cocoa, big vanilla, nice chilli, ancho like, little roasty dark malt, pretty nice.

Taste little sweetness, mild molasses, dark malts with little cocoa and dark choc, nice ancho chilis, hint of booze, inky dark malts, nice creamy malts, etc. Gets fairly hot, nice peppery note, inky dark and bitter tannic malts, not as good as original bomb. Finish is sticky syrupy bitter tannic notes, little pepper, etc.

Mouth is med to heavier bod, little creamy, nice carb, little hot booze and pepper heat.

Overall seems to be missing just a bit. Nice ancho chili heat, decent dark malts, pretty tasty, but just seems like it's missing that extra umph. Could be that my taste buds were starting to get overwhelmed at this point too. Not sure. (936 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Pours like a the bottom of a 5 gallon drum of oil, plenty of caramel/brown head. Stellar lacing & head retention

S: Coffee, dark chocolate, carob

T: Big time red chilles, dark chocolate, a little bit of mocha up front, some vanilla too. Dryness, vanilla, chilles & caramel as this warms, plus, chocolate. Finishes dry, warming, with assertive pepper spice & a little coffee

MF: Chewy, but there is still plenty of carbonation, seems to all work well together.

Not one to take lightly. easily the most complex/ small sip/share with a friend beer Prairie has out there IMHO. Next time I see this I will buy much more! Coffee, chilles, & chocolate, done right! One more bottle left. I guess I will age this. Hard to do so; drinking great now... (745 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Bottle poured into a Prairie "smoking catfish" stem glass, cellar temperature.

Black in color, maybe a little dark brown around the edges, with a conservative pour still giving a full two fingers of chocolate-brown head, which soon settled to a thick ring and dabbed the glass with lace. Perhaps unexpected for such a high ABV beer, but nothing wrong with that. In the nose, chocolate and roasted dark malts, somewhat grainy, notes of char and coffee grounds. Didn't get any vanilla or pepper in the aroma. Taste was decent, cocoa powder and dark malt roastiness, coffee and cream, slightly astringent, with a hint of pepper spice in the finish. From reading other reviews, this seems like a very inconsistent beer. Mouthfeel was medium bordering on full, pretty slick, and actually not too boozy for a 13% brew, but the effects were definitely felt soon after. Pretty good overall. Much better than Bomb anyway. (914 characters)

12 fl oz brown glass bottle with green wax paper-ed over branded pry-off pressure cap acquired at my local H-E-B grocery and served into an Avery stem-tulip in me gaff in low altitude Austin, Texas. Reviewed live. Expectations are sky high given the brewery and style. 13% ABV. Distributed by the Shelton Bastards. Collaboration with Evil Twin. Reviewed as an imperial stout since the label calls it an "Imperial Stout Aged On Coffee, Vanilla, Chilies, and Cacao Nibs."

Served at fridge temp and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: No bubble show forms as it's poured.

Pours a one finger wide head of fantastic rich tan colour with a hell of a shiny complexion. Great soft consistency. This is an ideal head colour for the style, and this beer definitely has my attention right off the bat. Fair even lacing clings to the sides of the glass as the head recedes. Retention is good for 13% ABV - about 2-3 minutes (or 4 minutes, if you count the floater ring the head leaves behind).

Body colour is a predictable opaque jet black. About as stygian as they come. No floating yeast particles or hop sediment are/is visible. Appears aptly carbonated.

Overall, it's a damn good looking imperial stout and I'm excited to try it. That said, it's far from unique.

Sm: Cacao nib dust/cocoa powder, crumbly natural chocolate, dark malts, chocolate malts, cream, and faint coffee roast. I don't pick up on chili per se, but it does evoke the chili powder notes of Mexican chocolate; the chilies seem entwined with the chocolate - which I consider a good thing. Slight burnt character manifests as it warms.

Cacao dust is dominant. The coffee notes seem to lack depth and diversity; this isn't the rich coffee character of the best coffee imperial stouts - just one note of flat roast.

No overt hop profile or yeast character is detectable, nor is any obvious booziness. I don't find any off notes.

Overall, it's a very appealing aroma for an imperial stout, but isn't quite in league with the very best in the style. I'm eager for the first sip. A pleasant aroma of moderate strength.

T: I get a lovely first impression - cacao nibs and accompanying dust, perfectly tamed chili powder heat, crumbly natural/Mexican chocolate, dark malts, chocolate malts, cream, a kiss of coffee roast, and burnt sugar - which is actually more prominent in the taste than it was in the aroma.

The second sip reveals the vanilla - right at the start of the second act, and the coffee notes - which are really quite generic. I crave more roast (both in terms of coffee and in terms of barley), as well as espresso, java, and just more overall richness.

I think I find...marshmallow? Fudge-y chocolate.

The sweetness is a biteen too high, but the slight roast, burnt sugars, and chili heat do do a decent job of checking it.

Speaking of the chili heat - it grows as the beer warms, but is always pleasant and in the background.

Overall, it's a complex, intricate, and subtly executed flavour profile, but the main drawback here is its (im)balance. Additionally, while the depth of flavour is good overall, the very best beers in the style push it even further - especially where notes like coffee and chocolate are involved. Good duration and intensity of flavour. The chili heat lingers in the stomach. I quite like this.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Just a biteen syrupy; I'd prefer the viscosity lower and the stickiness absent. Aptly carbonated. Full-bodied and thick. Good overall presence on the palate, with enough heft and weight to adequately complement its many flavours. Well done, Prairie.

Not oily, gushed, hot, boozy, harsh, or astringent.

Dr: She's a sipper, sure, but she drinks pretty easily for her 13%. This is yet another solid imperial stout from Prairie - a brewery that's really coming into its own. I wouldn't pay the $7.99 for this again, but it's tasty stuff and well worth trying once. I'd absolutely recommend it to friends.

B+

Why not an A-? The coffee is a missed opportunity, the chili is a bit too prominent as it warms, the mouthfeel is too sticky and syrupy, and the lack of roasted barley results in too much sweetness. Finally, the vanilla notes are very reticent - seemingly a common problem with Prairie's vanilla imperial stouts. (4,336 characters)

From 06/10/14 notes. Big thanks to BeerLawyer85 for sharing this one. Tried this right before Pirate Bomb. Liked both of them better than Prairie Bomb. 12-ish oz. bottle into a taster glass.

a - Pours a vicious jet black color with one inch of dark tan head and low carbonation evident. Looks great.

s - Smells of dark chocolate , roasted malts, cocoa, vanilla, coffee grinds, caramel malts, toasted malts, milk chocolate, burnt malts, toffee, oak, and cream. Awesome nose; super complex, not a lot of peppers which I like, and it works really well together. Love the nose.

t - Tastes of dark chocolate, roasted malts, oak, burnt malts, bitter anise, coffee, toasted malts, and light chili peppers. More pepper as it warms and more coffee than the nose. Little more bitter than expecting, step down from the nose but very good.

m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation. No alcohol heat or heat from the peppers. Little thicker body and a little more carbonation and this would be perfect.

o - Overall I thought this was a really great, and I definitely liked it better than their Prairie Bomb. More coffee and less heat and spicy peppers than Prairie Bomb, so I found this more drinkable, and allowed the coffee and vanilla to shine through more. I ended up liking Pirate Bomb a little more than this but you can't go wrong with either. Would love to have it again. (1,377 characters)

12 oz undated bottle prchased at Central Market (San Antonio) 2 days ago.

A - Pitch black; creamy brown head with great retention.

Aroma: Moderate-strong vanilla-coffee aroma with chocolate.

Flavor: rich and strong flavor of expresso, vanilla and cocoa nibs over dark roasted malts. Some (too much) char in the finish and aftertaste. Bittersweet balanced.

Feel: soft, medium-low carbonation; very smooth; mild heat from the chilies. Very full body as is apparent in the pour.

O: an excellent Imperial Stout rather similar to Westbrook's Mexican Cake. The later has a slightly better flavor wih more heat and much less char, but a less appealing feel. (659 characters)

Pours very little tan head. Color is a dark caramel brown.

Flavor profile: Rich dark chocolate. Caramel malts. Molasses and raisins. Dark fruits. Some oak and bourbon flavors. The chili peppers are kind of muted here. The vanilla does show, however. Tons of roasted and burnt alts.

Mouthfeel: Roasted/burnt. Full bodied. Low to medium carbonation. Ends dry.

Overall, I wasn't that impressed with this one. It was too burnt for me. Barrel flavors didn't show very much either. (478 characters)

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. (584 characters)

Bottle shared by mendvicdog. Thanks Pat!

Near black body with a thin, beige collar. Aromas of chocolate, oak, bourbon, vanilla, assorted spice. Perhaps notes of cinnamon and peppers. Delicious beer. Prevalent cocoa and baker's chocolate. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. Delicious. (294 characters)

Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass.

Deep dark black out of the bottle, nearly midnight but not totally. Great foamy head, dark mahogany cocoa brown and thick with three fingers tall. Great collar of lacing, and whispy top with a swiss cheese center. Wonderful looking beer.

Great solid nose. Nice piping roast qualities, definitely a nice green japaleno like chile and not very hot. Hints of coffee acid like quality too, not so much chocolate angle or vanilla but very impressive.

Palate matches on the nose. Green jalapeno, with soft dark chocolate bitterness. Finishes with zesty oils of pepper and almost grapefruit like character hinting of a hop angle. Coffee warmth comes out, and a bit of sourness. Silky texture, and liquid controlled pepper roast. With some warmth some cucumber like aromas come out also. However, not getting much vanilla notes on this though.

Real neat beer, lots of fun, you don't have to be a chili head to enjoy this one, and it's a great example of a well flavored imperial stout. Very well done.. (1,043 characters)

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). (613 characters)

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black. Not quite inky. Medium khaki head. Medium collar.

Smell - Peppers are strong. As is the cinnamon. A bit of graham cracker. Coffee.

Taste - Peppers are the most prominent. Much more vanilla. Coffee. Cinnamon lingers in the back end. Rich chocolate turns bitter and coffee-like in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Heavy spices. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Not as good as Bomb, unfortunately. Pretty enjoyable, but it still doesn't compare. (506 characters)

12oz brown bottle purchased from Ales Unlimited in San Francisco.

Uncaps without a sound, worryingly. However, it seems my fears of uncarbonation are unfounded, as it pours with a lovely creamy head of pale golden-toned brown, above a thoroughly rich body that looks a bit like melted high-cacao chocolate. Lacing forms solidly as well—relying on both the foam and the weight of the beer to sustain it. It looks pretty magnificent.

And... holy crap. That nose. That. Nose. Wow. Let me just collect myself a little bit here. This is amazing stuff: huge, powerful, rich, supple, complex and potent. Big robust coffee characters puncture everything ripping through characters of chocolate, deep malt, raw cacao, mole and anise. Entwined with this is a crisp capsicum potency: the chilli provides a crispness to the aroma that works with the fresh, fruity coffee tones. This is phenomenal stuff—I hope they know they've created surely one of the best-smelling beers in the world.

Taste is also excellent. Smooth and supple throughout, driven by beautiful layers of cacao-rich chocolate providing a bittersweet base. Spicy aromatics lift the palate and complicate it (in the best possible way), while the coffee lingers towards the back giving a zesty bitterness laced with earthy gravitas. Wow, there is so much going on here. This is unbelievably good stuff.

Feel is perfect—just perfect. I can't believe I was worried about a lack of carbonation. There's such a richness to the feel, lightened both by the subtle spice and the mild creaminess of the carb. Wonderful stuff.

Just, wow. I'm speechless. It's rare that so good a beer comes along, especially when I'm not expecting it, like with this one. I mean, Evil Twin's Even More Jesus is good, and I've really enjoyed Prairie's other beers—but when your strong line is new-world farmhouse ales, I just did not expect such a phenomenal imperial stout to come out of the stable. I'm humbled and awestruck. (1,966 characters)

Poured from a bottle into a snifter, the beer is jet black, thick and viscous, with a thin, bubbly, dark tan halo of head. Aromas of rich baker's chocolate, milk chocolate, roasted coffee, vanilla crème, chili pepper spice and heat, woody and earthy notes, and hints of booze. This smells pretty goddamn good! Flavors are chocolate and vanilla forward, with a solid bitter coffee backbone, almost like the grounds, and a light highlight of pepper spice throughout. Booze overtones throughout, which combine with the pepper characteristics to give a subtle warmth building in the back of your throat. Smokey and woody highlights throughout, as well. The beer is smooth, velvety, and robust in mouth, with a bitter coffee, cream, and pepper aftertaste. Smooth, slick, slightly lingering finish, as the thick body coats your entire palate with each sip. This is a great beer! Amazingly balanced, huge and yet drinkable. Bravo! (924 characters)

A- Half inch mid-mocha head on an extremely dark brown base. Head has some staying power but eventually recedes to a cap and thick collar

S- Smells heavenly. Rich, decadent cocoa with equal parts vanilla bean, coffee, and chili zip. If the taste is anywhere close to the nose I am in for a treat.

T- Chocolate notes, coffee, and vanilla beans are a little subtle compared to the chilies. Chili pepper aspect reminds me of an ashtray for the reason. Thirteen percent alcohol is well hidden underneath all the flavors going on.

M- Mouthfeel consistency is superb, medium-thick. Low carbonation.

D/O- I really wish the taste held up to the nose on this one, hah. As is, it's a very good imperial stout. With a few tinkers, namely toning down the chili in the taste, I think it could be world class. Thanks for the bottle egrace84! (832 characters)

Reviewed from notes from 4/28/14

A- Pours pitch black with a finger of dark brown head that barely recedes at all, leaving thick, sticky lacing.

S- Smells strongly of rich chocolate, both sweet milk and bitter dark. Some dry cocoa and spicy chili in the middle. Smooth and sweet vanilla and coffee round this out. It's like a richer version of Bomb!

T- Flavors of dark roasted malt and coffee in the forefront. The dry/bitter cocoa and slight heat and chili flavor are also prevalent. Only hints of vanilla. The flavors are all there, but not as well integrated as in Bomb!

M- The mouth feel is robust, thick, and somewhat drying. Almost no alcohol presence, which is impressive at 13%!

O- This is a really great imperial stout, and a fun concept. I prefer Bomb!, but not by a huge margin. (794 characters)

12 ounce bottle. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch frothy tan head that stuck around for a while. There's a decent amount of lacing. I like the aroma, the brew smells like coffee, burnt/charred malt, chilies, vanilla, bittersweet chocolate and some earthy smokiness. I think the taste is mostly like the aroma, but there's also some roasted malt and a bit of nuttiness and dark fruit noticeable. There's a nice amount of heat from the chilies, but it's not overpowering at all. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's slick and smooth with a good amount of carbonation. I thought this was a pretty good brew, I'll definitely have to pick up another bottle the next time I come across some! $9.49 a bottle. (745 characters)

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark brown almost black hue with a thin mocha head that left's light lacing.

S - Aromas of nutty stout, vanilla, chocolate, light smoky chili.

T - Taste is like the nose, light nuttiness, faint vanilla and chocolate, good smoky ancho chili. Very nice, like an amped up bomb.

M - Mouthfeel is nice and lightly creamy, alcohol hidden well.

O - Overall this is a tasty beer. I still think I like bomb better than this. (503 characters)

12 oz bottle pours a crazily viscous black color with a small cap of dark brown head...this bitch is thick and rich.

Nose is dominated by coffee with some spicy red peppers peeking around the corner. Not necessarily sweet, but there is plenty of malt here and some chocolate in the background.

Taste is a perfect blend of chocolate, roasty coffee and cayenne ground pepper. Wow, I have never been a fan of chipotle/red pepper beers but this one has such wonderful balance that I am loving the shit out of it. So smooth too, you would never guess 13% in your wildest dreams. Im pretty firmly on the Prairie bandwagon, I think one infected noir was the only hiccup I have sampled from them. (690 characters)

On tap at D&T in Houston, TX

A: Pours an opaque black color, no light at all gets through. A one finger tan head rises, with good retention, and lace.
S: Big coffee up front and center. Some chocolate, roasted malts. Lingering bitter bakers chocolate. A bit of heat from the chilies. Not over barring though.
T: At first, coffee is big up front. That fades to milk chocolate, light roast, even more bitter bakers chocolate. As this warms, the chilies become much more apparent, and take over everything. Unlike Bomb, which had an amazing balance between everything.
M/D: A full, viscous body. Inky, oily,and just super thick. Just the low side of moderate carbonation. As this warms, the alcohol, mixed with the chilli heat makes this a slow sipper. Though not entirely a chore to finish.

As expected, everything about this is just big. I love Bomb, and this is similarly big, but just seems more over barring to me. Not to say this is bad, just not my particular favorite stout Prairie has made. Though, I have never been a huge fan of Even More Jesus to begin with (the overly viscous body is what I did not like). I can see how fans of both would fall in love with this however. (1,183 characters)

Poured out into a Hill wine glass. Beautiful, thick and dark, A nice 1 finger of mocha colored head. Burnt malt, light spice(nutmeg and cinnamon) and pepper skin. Tasted bitter as hell, but in a good way. Very subtle spice flavor with a slow build up of burn in the back of your throat. Not spicy at all, but just a really nice burn. Somewhat dominated by the roasted malts, this was slightly out of balance for me. Nice and thick, really coated the mouth. Just a really good beer. There are aspects of this beer I like more than Bomb. A great collaboration IMO. (562 characters)
