Appearance: Pours thick with plenty of head. Very foamy!
Smell: Boozy, fruity with some sweet and nutty from the malts
Taste:Vinous taste is absolutely apparent. Boozy, boozy, boozy...can't tell if I like it yet even after 5-7 sips. Will return to this........I'm back, and, after much deliberation, I like this beer more than not. It's "in-your-face-delicate" if you can follow me on that.
Feel: Love the feel! Has a nice body to it to support the intense flavors that are coming through.
Overall: Definitely an interesting beer and I'm glad I bought a bottle. I'm a fan of prairie and appreciate their more creative brews. This is definitely one of the slowest sippers I've had. I'd probably buy another and save it for the right time and I'd definitely recommend this experience even if you don't end up liking this beer as I can easily see this not being for everyone.

The beer comes in a dark black color with a tinge of purple and red in the dark brown head.

The aroma attacks of huge red wine quality, milk chocolate, some coffee, caramel sweetness.

The flavor hits of red wine throughout. It's almost as if stout was poured into a huge glass of robust red wine. The berries of raspberries, currant, cherries, and red grapes hit up front, then some smokiness, sweet chocolate, coffee. Lots of carbonation on this. Then onto a big attack of alcohol and lots of red wine tannic drying.

A fun fun beer.

Boozy. Up-front and thru-out. And it was awesome. Truly has wine hints from the smell to the feel. Overall really boozy.

Less chocolate and a bit thinner than previous Prairie imperial stouts I've had. Sour with a strong red wine presence. Berries? Carbonation medium high. Purchased in May 2014, so perhaps a bit past its prime.
