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.

Bottle courtesy of Ed...750 ml....thanks buddy.

I simply cannot jive the beer in my glass with my tastes or other reviews. Harsh tannic barrel, cheap whiskey, some peat, and too much alcohol on the finish.

In short, a very disappointing and even somewhat unpleasant BA stout.

Red Wax 12 oz.

Pours a really nice black with a nice 1" head. Smells of yeast, very similar to Ommegedon. Tastes like burnt grains and harsh tannins, no barrel to speak of at all. Sad face... Mouthfeel is nice but it's held back by the lingering char.

Sorry Oklahoma, not that good.

Poured from bottle (red wax) into a tulip glass.

A: Nearly black pour (brown around he edges) with small, light brown head.

S: Sour cherries dominate (although somewhat less so as it warms up). Dark fruits and light vanilla and coffee also present.

T: Harsh wood/oak notes at first, along with bitter chocolate and burned roastiness. Some dark fruits, coffee, and cheap whiskey flavors are there too, along with smoke and a touch of sourness.

M: Somewhat thin for the style.

O: It improves as it warms - I'd recommend drinking at or near room temp - but this was disappointing and borderline unpleasant. I like most offerings from Prairie, and really expected more from this beer.
