look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Typical stout in color and appearance. There is a dark tan head that looks ever so creamy!

S: Oh man... chocolate, oats, rye bread, and some spice.

T: Yes! Chocolate, oatmeal which brings a nice creaminess, rye bread, grain, raisins and other dark fruits, the ancho chili is definitely noticeable but not overpowering at all. Nice balance of flavors.

M: The mouth plays around nicely with the taste, in that it's thick and creamy like butter, yet has a hard, concrete punch to it.

O: Awesome beer. Taste is very balanced and complex: I get a lot of flavors out of it. This is amazing for an already amazing style.

Serving type: on-tap

Drink this beer!

A - Blacker than your morning joe. Deep, deep dark brown with a nice, medium head that leaves virtually no lace. Head fades fast.

S - The coffee and alcohol hit you right as you open the bottle. Chocolate is definitely there and easy to smell, but comparatively much harder to pick up. Something slightly funky is there, but I think it's just the combination of the chili and the vanilla. If you inhale deep you get the burn of the chili.

T - BOOM. The first sip is unexpected. It punches you. Smooth, lush, and that lingering note of iced mocha and alcohol. The balance on this beer is great, especially when you consider it's 13% ABV. It tastes just like you'd expect a dark, chocolatey beer to taste. The malt...it makes me so happy.

M - Another reviewer correctly pointed out that the chili comes out more strongly if you swish this around a bit before swallowing. This beer really has the mouth feel of a nice cup of dark roast, heavy but not cloying.

O - Prairie Artisan Ales has a very solid coffee stout here. The addition of the chocolate, vanilla, and chili somehow all works out very well.

Note - Don't drink this beer too cold; you'll miss all the fun.

YAY Beer!

Pours out pitch black, half inch light brown head, no lace.

The smell is intense! Chocolate, fresh iced coffee, vanilla... yum.

The slightly warmed taste starts with spicy chocolate with chili peppers (which wasn't in the smell). Coffee and sweet malt follow. Vanilla, booze and chili finish it. Thick and delicious.

I would never turn this beer down... ever! So much going on, hope to find a few more.
