Jet black in color with a quarter inch dark brown head. Aroma of red wine and dark roasted barley is very prominent. The flavor is initially tart with the flavor of red wine and then very quickly rushes into deep,dark barley. Notes of Pinot Noir interplay well with chocolate and a hint of coffee. A bit more sour than bitter,overall. The mouth is fairly heavily carbonated and thick.

Enjoyed from a Dino glass.

a - brew pours black with a thin off tan head that didn't hang out long but never fully went away.

s - nose is chocolate roast with vinous notes.

t - chocolate covered cherry a bit medicinal, as the red wine seems to fight for prominence with the stouty base.

m - prickly carb a hint of booziness, fruity on a stout.

o - overall, not really my bag but drinkable. The red wine doesn't really seem to work too great here and seems to take away more than it gives. Fun tick, but skip able brew.

12 oz undated bottle prchased at Central Market (San Antonio) 2 days ago.

A - Pitch black; creamy brown head with great retention and sticky lacing.

Aroma: Moderate-strong red wine and wine barrel components dominate the dark malts.

Flavor: over-powering red wine and wine barrel aspects. The normal stout flavors start to come out mid-taste, but it's back to red wine and barrels

Feel: soft, medium-low carbonation; very smooth; full body.

O: an unsuccessful transformation of a fine Imperial Stout.

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.
