A: It pours out of the lightly waxed bottle very dark in color, but devoid of head. The head that does ever-so-slightly raise up is brown in color. 3
S: I smell a bit hit of chili peppers in the beer, as well as some vanilla. I'm worried that it's going to blow my mouth away with the heat. It's very sweet, with some chocolate thrown in. 4
T: The chocolate shines through the initial sips of the taste, but chilis take it over quickly. Not the most robust pepper taste of this chili stout tasting, the chilis are tolerable and actually pleasant here. I'm not getting as much sweetness, or any vanilla, on the taste. It seems to be more focused on roast, chocolate, and heat. 4.5
MF: It has a robust mouthfeel that holds up enough to balance the heat from the peppers. The finish makes you crave the sweetness of the initial sips. The 14% ABV is hardly noticeable. 4
Value: At $12 for a 12oz bottle it would seem to be expensive, but the trading value of this makes it worth it. Definitely would seek this out again. If you like chilis, don't wait for them to fade any more. 4.5
O: This beer really lived up to the hype for me. Balanced, delicious, all with an appropriate amount of heat. It brought out the best in a stout and in a chili stout. I can't imagine that barrel aging this beer will improve it. 4.5

I tried Prairie Bomb at the Brass Tap in Round Rock, Texas (a great place by the way). This was recommended to me by the Bar Maid who had an absolutely incredible knowledge of her beers. The taste is rich with coffee / chocolate accents - mouthfeel was as smooth as velvet. I sipped and enjoyed this brew for at least 45 minutes - which honestly - is a long time for me to savor any brew. I've got to testify....this a Mighty Fine Ale!
