Color- black. Thick coffee with cream head.

Aroma- Godiva coffee liqueur, chocolate covered coffee beans, and hint of rum raisins.

Taste- A weird sour imperial stout. The intro is harshly sour, probably from the wine barrel aging, then finishes with a long lingering traditional imperial stout roasted coffee tone. Overall, a disappointment. I had to pour this after three small sips. Purchased at an HEB in Austin May 2014. Perhaps a bad batch? But this was really sour and off.

Poured from 355 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted 6/7/14

Seriously...are there any Prairie beers that don't totally suck and/or aren't infected? Do people rate them up just because it's the only thing that comes out of Oklahoma?

Slight gusher from the bottle. Dark black-brown pour into a mini-snifter...but that wasn't cutting it...I needed a full-sized snifter to contain all the foam that came out even from a careful pour. The head never completely died down between when I opened the bottle and when I dumped the beer down the drain. Infection was apparent in the aroma right from the beginning, lesser notes of roasted malt, and not much else. Taste of rotten fruit, sour infection, wet wood, charred malts. Really bad, and completely undrinkable. Seems to be the trend with Prairie beers, and I don't know how they're getting away with it. Well, at least their glassware is neat.

Black with creamy tan head. Nice, huge head.

Nose is typical stout licorice up front, lots of jersey caramel, some raspberry. Hints of sourness. Some marshmallow.

Taste has a strong sourness to it. Lots of red wine tannins. But just huge sourness...it shouldn't be here. It has a grittiness to it...at times it tastes like biting into off fruit.

Back palate has huge sourness, more raspberry, mushrooms

Really pretty woeful to be charging the price they are in Australia for such an obviously infected and malformed beer.

People are gonna buy this expecting BA stout flavours and will get a soured acidic and tannic mess.

The sourness is totally at odds with the bold stout profile and is ultimately somewhat unpleasant.

Disappointing as there is still a bit of the original stout's presence before it was raped by infection, and it is quite solid. I will probably finish this beer, but it's not great.

Out of the bottle and into a PAA tulip

A - dark and ominous. Looks great with a great 2 finger head.

S - very different. Roast, chocolate, and wine. Wine, wine, wine.

T - Tastes like a pinot or cab with a stout mixed in. Figs, oak, cherry, chocolate, etc.

M - while effervescent, its hot still. Full bodied.

O - what the heck did I just drink? A wine or a beer? Had to drain pour the rest. A hot wine mess that seemed interesting, but only for a moment.
