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

Glass Used: Teku

Appearance: This beauty poured an ink black that returned a thick cascading tan head. Lacing was abundant. A fantastic and inviting stout.

Smell: Wow. Big roasted coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, chocolate syrup and waifs of vanilla fill the nose. The latter becomes more fragrant over time.

Taste: Coffee, dark chocolate, and vanilla are in full force at the front and middle. The finish provides the depth of the dried roasted chili. While subtle, the chili flavor is there and balanced very well. Alcohol is very well hidden.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and velvety. This alone keeps the glass near you at all times.

Overall: A family member tasted this and asked the ABV. As I reached for the bottle I answered 9%. I was a bit surprised to see it was 13%. This stout easily drinks like a 9%. The flavors are are so damn seductive and inciting. I didn't want this beer to end. This is a must try.

Orange wax I got in a trade.

A - Pitch black with a beautiful tan head. Leaves a great lacing on the glass.

S - Chocolate and coffee dominate but you can pick up hints of the vanilla as it warms. No chilis...yet.

T - A bomb (pun intended) of flavors. Chocolate, coffee, sweetness from the vanilla and at the very end a hit of the chili. Wish the heat would of been a tad stronger but doesn't detract from the beer.

M - Perfect. Best part about the beer (which I say rarely). So damn silky smooth.

O - One of the best non BA stouts I've had. Glad I got a couple bottles left. I'd say drink fresh but since I have a few gonna age and see what happens. As it stands now, great brew from Prairie!

Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass and shared with friends
Thanks to pushkinwow for the bottle!

Pours a deep black color with a short tan head with minimal/no lace. The nose has a great spice, hot and pungent chili peppers, sweet roasted malts and maybe a touch of coffee. A surprisingly balanced chili pepper stout, a really nice dark, roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee but finishes with warm chili peppers. A nice thick body and standard carbonation, silky, smooth, round.
