4.16/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a deep, dark brown, close to opaque. About 1" of khaki head forms, which has decent retention and pretty nice lacing. Nice looking beer. 4

Smell: Rich hazelnut sweetness with a significant vanilla presence. Excellent woodiness along with light whiskey character.

Taste: Rich nuttiness with a bit of coffee-like bitterness mixed in. Sweet vanilla comes out from the barrel, and oaky whiskey on the back end and finish. A bit sweet overall for me, but very nice still.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Medium bodied verging on full, with an excellent level of fine carbonation. By no means does it drink to the level of its ABV. Just about perfect. Overall extremely impressed with this. Just about a perfect level of barrel aging presence. I need to pick up more of these. I have been extremely impressed with every Prairie Artisan beer I have tried, and this one is no exception. Very good. (897 characters)

12oz bottle $10.99. I have to learn to stop buying Prairie beers, they just don;t do it for me. This one was heavy whiskey smell and flavor with a body that didn't support it. Not much more than booze and I love whiskey barrel beers. (233 characters)

(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer pours a dense opaque deep brown body with a thick cream of light tan that last a good bit.

S- The rich wet oak and paper straws aroma has some nice bourbon notes in the finish. There is a hint of permanent marker that leads to some toffee notes as it opens.

T- The well-blended bourbon and oak flavor leads to a dark sweet malt finish and an alcohol spice to it. Some chocolate earthy malt flavor grows as it opens.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a nice alcohol warmth in the finish.

O- This is a big beer but well blended and cut with some nice alcohol makes this a great sipper. It would be nice to have a bit more malt forward but it is still very tasty. (707 characters)

Pours murky brown with little to no head at all. Smell is of sweet, buttery toffee, bourbon, rich vanilla bean, caramel. Lovely nose! Taste follows with the caramel, bourbon and wood character. Feel is light-medium and very easy to drink. Not much heat. Overall, this one is up there with Prairie's BA stuff. (309 characters)
