L: normal black prairie stout.

S: similar bomb smell with vanilla coming out.

T: exceptional beer. Like regular bomb but smoother. The barrel really melts everything together better. Really digging the vanilla that comes out.

F: oily feel. Nice and sleek. Smoooth.

O: another winner from prairie

Pours to almost no head. Like many PAA stouts, this is a pretty thick stout. This is the most rum-forward rum BA stout I've had. It's overwhelming at first and I was actually disappointed out of the gate. But, as with many BA stouts, it came together much better as it warmed. I honestly think it should've (should be?) blended with a little more of the base beer. Great in the end, better than regular BA Bomb. I'll definitely look forward to sharing the other bottle.

Harvey has finally passed and it has been a scary handful of days. A relief-ful beverage sounds like a good idea. 12 oz bottle pours an opaque, viscous black with a small cap of brown head. Nice retention, not much lace.

Nose is strong ancho and cocoa. More subtle aromas of anise, condensed milk and coffee. Really huge nose and very powerful. Sweet, but plenty of ancillary notes that balance things out.

Flavors are masterfully blended...it goes from sweet to dry to spicy and then back to dry with a lingering sweetness without a hitch. crazy that. just loads of cocoa, leafy hops, licorice, coconut, brown sugar and molasses. The rum character really comes through in the flavor. Expensive, but a pretty amazing beer experience I think.

Tasted from bottle. Pours black with tan head. Great lacing. Chocolate and coffee aroma. Taste is big time chocolate. Some coffee and a little caramel but mostly dark chocolate on the flavor. Very smooth and well balanced. Mild bitterness and mild to moderate sweetness. Hides the high ABV incredibly well. Excellent imperial stout. One of my favorites.
