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.

C&C bottle into my Crooked Stave snifter.

A: No light passage. Surprisingly high foam/carb for BA - at least 2 fingers. Beautiful latte color head. Lacing and foam stays throughout the whole snifter; pour after pour.

S: LOVE. Chocolate chocolate and dark chocolate. Slight burnt sugar and marshmallow. Take the sweet away from a really high dollar hot chocolate, and you have the nose of Noir.

T: Lots of chocolate (like it was brewed with dark chocolate); exceptionally smooth mouthfeel. Here, the marshmallow comes in. No heat from the alcohol. The creamy-smooth nature of the oatmeal dominates - and I want it to dominate. I really don't have the words; just try it.

O: I had 2 world-class beers tonight: Zombie Dust and Noir. So different; but both amazing for different reasons. I couldn't drink Noir all night, but only because I'd be on the floor. It is amazingly drinkable for such a big beer. I love Bomb! and several other Prairie beers, and the balance of Noir puts it on my top shelf. I find myself trying to slow down and savor, which is good - I want it to last - but difficult.
