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.

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.

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.

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.

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...
