The other day I was able to find this gem at a local bar here in Houston. After the first sip of this stout I realized that I underestimated the ingredients. Never have been a fan of pepper added to my beers but this one had the perfect emulsion of pepper, cacao nibs, and a hint of vanilla. As the title explains the flavor, an explosion of flavors graces your tongue with an imperial finish. Nice golden head with a dark chocolate body. Highly recommend this!

Very good stout. The chilies weren't as pronounced as I anticipated (recent batch) but all aged flavors were well balanced. Good stuff

A - used motor oil black as the abyss. Beautiful light cocoa head

S - oh my. So there's definitely coffee and cocoa. Then vanilla, not vanilla oak notes, but actual vanilla. Plus the chili aroma gives it a nice vegetal counter balance

T - one of the most pleasurable palate experiences I've had. Imagine ancho chili flakes in dark chocolate while sipping your favorite nutty espresso. And if that's not enough, add this rich vanilla note that smoothes out the entire experience. It sounds cloying and overwhelming, but it's not. That is the ultimate beauty of this beer.

M - maybe my least favorite part of this near perfect beer. If I were to nit pick, the weight if the beer in the mouth is not quite heavy enough to support its syrupy texture.

Overall, this is a game changing beer. For me. For you. For anyone. It is a sensorial experience.

A: Motor Oil blackness with a dark brown head that disappears rather quickly

S: A lot going on with the smell, you can smell the vanilla, coffee, peppers and chocolate. All combined smell like dark dark brown sugar

T: Very similar to the smell that comes in waves. At first you get the chocolate/coffee, then the vanilla which gives way to the slightest burn from the peppers. The burn from the peppers is almost nonexistent but you do get the taste and flavor, which is done perfectly.

M: For a big beer, this has a great mouthfeel. Nice and creamy being thick where it needs to be

O: This is such a different beer and so well done. I am very glad to have tried this beer and happy to have some in my cellar to drink when the mood strikes. I have yet to have a bad beer from Prairie
