Notes/Commercial Description:
Prairie Noir is our bourbon barrel aged imperial oatmeal stout. We brew this beer with a huge amount of oats to give it an ever so silky mouth feel. Notes of coffee, chocolate, and toasted marshmallow can be found in the flavor and aroma of this beer. Notes of whiskey and carmel are also packed into this beer.

With all the hype over the bomb, i feel like people forgot about this. Yeah the variants are great, but the original is easily one of the best BA stouts around. Incredibly smooth and not over bourbony, this is a top choice for a cold winter night

From a 12 oz wax top bottle of unknown date. Jet black with a bit of oily lace. Milk chocolate aroma with a bit of vanilla. Chocolate, first, caramel a distant second, and vanilla far behind in third. The barrel aging adds a bit of vanilla, but that's about all. Dry. Medium carbonation and lighter than expected body.
