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.

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.
