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.

Heavy pour gives way to a thick voluminous light brown head and a black body. Plenty of lace and good retention.

The aroma presents whiskey, chocolate, roasted malts, touch of vanilla and caramel sweetness.

Whiskey and oak from the barrels, lots of coffee from the roasted malt, chocolate and caramel.

Drinking this on a freezing day and it provides a nice warmth. The carbonation is low and the body is medium. The oats give it a nice smooth feel.

In the world of barrel aged stouts it doesn't stack up to the big boys. Still a solid beer.

3.79/5  rDev -8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Tan head. Little lace left. Color is black.

Flavor profile: A lot of bourbon and whiskey flavors. Oak and vanilla. Toasted marshmallows with a light coconut flavor. Lots of chocolate and caramel. Roasted malts. Maybe some nut flavors (almonds). Molasses.

Mouthfeel: Roasted, smooth, warming. A bit of heat shows, but not much. Full bodied.

Overall, an enjoyable stout, but nothing crazy for a barrel aged beer. Good, but not mind blowing. I'd drink it again, but for the cost, I'd probably rather drink BCS. Too much roast for me.
