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.

A: Pours deep brown. Not completely black. Light tan head. Forms a collar. Good carbonation.

S: Smells of booze. Dark cocoa. Mild roast. Burnt sugar. Vanilla.

T: Dark chocolate bitterness upfront. Oats really make this beer smooth. You get nice sweetness from the malts to flow in there. Getting some caramel notes. Toasted marshmallow for sure. Lingering deliciousness.

M: It's full bodied. Creamy from oats.

12oz bottle into a snifter

Thanks to Nathrax for sending this over in a trade!

A: Pours a very dark brown, almost but not quite black, with lightening on the edges. Decent amount of sedimentation can be seen in the glass. Less than 1/2 fingers width of tan colored head builds and then quickly dissipates down. Leaves a fair amount of lacing.

S: An almost sour dark fruit aroma, roasted malt, subtle cocoa. Oak and a little bit of whiskey booze are the only components I get from the barrel, and are faint.

T: Roasted malt, booze, chocolate, some oatmeal stout flavors, whiskey oak-like characters from the barrel.

M/D: Medium body, thinner mouthfeel that I expect in the style, appropriate carbonation, not terribly smooth, ABV is very well restrained though and drinkability is good.

O: Kind of disappointed in this one. I would certainly prefer stronger barrel notes and a fuller mouthfeel. Flavor/aroma could be bolder as well. Still good, but I had higher expectations.
