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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Nice black pour, brown head, a finger, nice lacing., the aroma is a little lacking, but still good. The barrel is mild, with softer whiskey notes, toast, and plenty chocolate. Taste is as well heavy on the chocolate, and really starts to open up when it warms, giving a nice whiskey note, vanilla, charred wood, and toast. Mouthfeel has a nice creamy, soft feel, with a silky body and fullness. Drinks great, I kinda like the lowish ABV. Overall, while not astoundingly aromatic, it make up in tast and mouth feel.
