Cheers to Freddy from the Biergarten in Jenks for holding one back for me!
Pours an effervescent pitch black with a fast falling mocha colored head. Nice viscious look, near zero head retention & lacing
S: Rich coffee & dark chocolate, caramel & vanilla
T: Follows the, vanilla, caramel & a general hint of creme brule' going on here along with dryness, just a little chille bite too. More pepper heat as this warms, coffee, mocha & oaky notes, strong caramel. Finishes with oaky dryness, chille heat, coffee & cocoa
MF: Medium bodied, fairly silky, thickens up over time
This is incredibily smooth & drinkable for such a complex beer. Deft use of chillles really sets this apart from the crowd. Easily my favorite big beer from Prairie, so far... Wanted to wring the bottle out to get every drop. I would love to see a barrel aged version of this, but pretty awesome in its own right

A - Pours a dark almost jet black dark chocolate. A very slow to form 1/4 inch dark tan head. The head is smell but it does linger for some time
S - Wow, lots going on here. Chocolate, coffee, a hint of pepper. Sounds weird but I even detect something that smells like a chocolate milk shake
T - Awesome flavor. Not as sweet tasting as the aroma would indicate. Lots of sweet chocolate dominate at first but then it fades to a oak type bitterness. Tastes of coffee are nicely mixed in the middle. It even has a little bourbon flavor on the finish.
M - Great heavy beer. It does has a pretty powerful burn but what else would you expect at 13% abv. Really easy to drink and provides a nice warming feeling as it goes down!
O - Fantastic beer. Glad I stumbled across one. Has a powerful but well balanced flavor. I was a little leery when it mentioned chili peppers, but they are very mild and hard to detect but are present. Will be picking another one up soon!
