Purchased at K&L in Redwood City; $13 for a 750 ml bottle.

There is something spectacular about beer packaged in sparkling wine bottles. From twisting the wire to release the cage to slowly releasing the cork to that satisfying *pop*; I just hope the beer in the package is worth the extra ceremony involved with getting it out. Although I have to say the label is a bit perplexing. Two blue hands pointing at a hot dog and some constellations with early '80s NBA (short shorts) guys...very strange....whatever...on to the beer.

As I pour the beer into a tulip glass, the color reminds me of a cola. The cola similarities do not stop at the color as the carbonation quickly forms a tan-ish head that threatens to overflow the glass but quickly recedes.

Imagine you are making dark chocolate (not that sissy milk chocolate crap) smores over a campfire made with damp hay; that is about what this beer smells like. Nice roasty malts mixed with a hint of funk.

Nice chocolate and roasted malts flood the palate, very mild bitterness, quickly followed by a clean, effervescent finish. Very little, if any, clove and phenolics; which in my opinion is a good thing!

This is a beer that you want to spend some time with; resist the urge to share your 750ml bottle, you will want this one all to yourself.

This is the second beer I have tried from Prairie Artisan Ales and I am eager to try a third!

Cheers.
