look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours with a tan head of about half a finger. Jet black color with a substantial amount of floaties on the bottom on the initial pour but dissipated as this beer was drank. Above average active carbonation for the style.

Smell: Airy oak, heavily roasted medium bodied coffee grounds, and sweet milk chocolate and lactose hit on the nose. Definite splash of earthy fruits from the peppers. Hoppy tones mute some of the vanilla. Smokiness lingers from the nose to the body. Chocolate and lactose continue to be very present throughout.

Taste: Smooth front of vanilla, espresso, and milk chocolate greet the drinker. Herbal, rustic fruits make a bold entrance on the body. Light coffee grounds, creamy lactose, and lingering herbal notes round out the body. The finish is a dry smokiness with a mixture of the earlier mentioned flavors with no outstanding outliers.

Mouthfeel: The palate is lightly taxed for what this beer is. Carbonation fits this brew very well. Slight oaky chalkiness lingers.

Overall: Loved by first offering from Prairie. The additives are well done in this brew but for me almost come together too well and none really stand out. The peppers are the highlight here. Just a tick off of being a world class stout but something I would always be excited to drink.
