look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Look: Pours black with almost no head. Minimal carbonation present.

Smell: You can definitely smell the chilies, It smells boozy and you also get hints of coffee and vanilla. The cacao nibs are also very much present, but less so than the chilies.

Taste: If you like the chilies and spice, then you will love this beer. Immediate burst of chilies and cacao nibs as you take this one in, and a hint of vanilla and coffee as it goes down. Excellent and unique taste to this stout.

Feel: Like other Prairie offerings, this one hides the booze well (despite the boozy smell) given the high ABV. Smooth, easy drinking. This is a great stout to have on a cold winter evening, and the flavors still dominate as the beer warms, so this is also great to crack open and let breathe for a little while. Overall an excellent offering from Prairie and Evil Twin.

This could have been so good, but the chili kills it. It's also sticky sweet.
Otherwise, this could have been a home-run. Lovely (albeit momentary) head, a tempting nose, and as dark as night - this one is luring. But then you taste it and what you taste is chili, chili, chili. And a little bit of coffee in the aftertaste.
Definitely not worth the price of admission.

Black in color with no light penetration. There's a fingernail of brown around the rim. The aroma is of chilies, caramel, vanilla, and cocoa nibs. I'm tasting chilies, cocoa nibs, vanilla, and caramel. The mouth is thick, chewy, and sticky.

Super dark, not quite as thick as an Abyss or something like that. Thick fluffy pillowy deep tan head that remained for minutes. Pretty strong cinnamon and Chile flavor. Kind of like a little brother to Abraxas. Great for Fall.

16oz bottle. Poured out an opaque, jet-black color with a small, light brown head of foam. It smelled of chocolate, chillies, coffee and vanilla. Very mild chillie heat with roasted coffee, chocolate, vanilla and toffee.

I'm number 2000!!!

Very soild beer! Been holding on to it for a couple of months. Broke it out for the first msu game this year.

A&S: thick looking chocolate colored head forms upon initial pour. Doesn't hang around for the whole time. Cocoa nibs dominate the aroma, with completments of bourbon and dark chocolate.

T&M: taste is more if the same. Mouthfeel is smooth and thick

Overall: I thought it was well balanced beer, not mind blowing but not basic either. Enjoyed it but don't have a ton to say.

L -- Pours a fairly dark black body with two fingers of light brown head produced with moderate pour. Good retention and lacing. Hideous can design
S -- Milk chocolate, smoke, beef jerky, coffee syrup, vanilla, caramel, hint of dark fruit. Oddly savory smelling because of the roasty/meaty aromas I'm picking up
T -- Chocolate syrup, coffee syrup, umami, vanilla, toffee, roast, maple syrup. Not really getting any chili heat, which is too bad
F -- Medium+ mouthfeel, medium carb. No perceivable alcohol, even given the high ABV. Not too much thickness to the body, nor is there that fluffy/velvety character I look for in high ABV sweet stouts
O -- Honestly doesn't taste too different from Even More Jesus. The spices just don't really come through enough

68/100

This imperial stout pours a pitch black color with a big foamy brown head with great retention. The smell is amazing and complex with chocolate, coffee, and some chilies. The flavor incorporates all of the advertised flavors chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and chilies. It's a very nice combination, but I personally would tone down the coffee a bit and increase the flavor of the chilies. The body is about as big as stouts get and the finish is nice and creamy with a mild coffee bitterness that lingers. Quite a nice imperial stout overall.

Pouring from a 16 oz. can into a tulip glass. This beer pours out black as night and forms a perfect one finger crown that is mocha/caramel in color. Couldn't look better. The smell is surprising to me how much you can smell both the beers. You can smell the grainy, tobacco like malt from even more but then some peppers and vanilla from bomb. The taste comes in with coffee and the peppers being prominent, tingling on the tongue. It then turns to a chocolately and vanilla mix. I have always loved the spice package that Bomb brings, and here it brings it just as well. The mouthfeel is warming with the roasty coffee and tingling with the peppers, while having a fudge like thickness the whole time. Overall, I didn't expect anything less.
