Well I purchased a can on a whim cruising through my favorite bottle shop. When I got out the the truck I looked at the receipt (this was one of several items) and was kinda omg at what I paid of a a16 ounce can. It poured almost black with perfect head. Smelled awesome. Great lacing. Tasted as described. The coffee was way in the background where it belongs. The vanilla and cacao nibs were there but balanced perfectly and the chilies were just right. A true flavor bomb but extremely well balanced. Perfect mouthfeel with sticky lips. I have nothing bad to say about it. This is the highest rating I have ever given a beer. They nailed it and I am a BA stout guy.

As advertised. Definitely roasty ie EMJ... definitely cacao, chilies and vanilla ie Bomb. Not expecting but do miss the sweet side and thicker feel of Bomb. Two originals are both amongst my favorites and this is a very good beer. All together it is a stand out. Glad I had tried it. Agree with many posts however that market has way too many excellent big stouts as good/better... and below this price point.

There is a common theme going on for Prarie for me, the scores are all under the median, but not terribly, but they all fall into that "good beer, but not worth more than $1/oz" such a psychologically tough price point for me. This seems to follow suit. Pours black as a no moon night. Almost no head on it, very thin 1/5" brown head. Aroma pops lit with chocolate and coffee in massive ways. My favorite thing.

Taste is adjunct pastryarchy city. Vanilla, coffee, chocolate, all the usual suspects. The chile impact is mild but appropriate. Definitely hides the alcohol well. Full on sipper status. This beer does that adjunct stout game very well. The adjuncts pop harder on this one than they do the barrel aged bible belt, just depends what you are looking for I guess. As usual, I'm not looking to pay more for this one bottle than I am for a 12 pack of SNPA. So while its a very good beer, its not a repeat purchase kind of beer, more of a "hey that was fun to tick" but I've had dozens of beers just like it kind of vibe.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a clear glass snifter. 01/16/18 on bottom of can.

A: Black with 1-finger of brown cake batter head with short-lived retention and no lacing.

S: Big roast malt character, dark chocolate, with some smokiness and the lightest tingle on the nostrils from the chiles.

T: Flavor favors EMJ compared to BOMB! with the signature burnt fudge pudding flavor dominating with a lot of roast and black malt coming through with dark and bittersweet chocolate, minimal black coffee, and light chile in the aftertaste. I like this beer but way prefer BOMB! regular over this. Bitterness is medium.

M: Easily the best part of this beer with a coating character, low carbonation, and hidden alcohol, no way this is 13%.

O: Impressive beer in some areas, missing in others, this uneven effort is still a must-try for Even More Jesus lovers as it favors that flavor profile heavily over BOMB! -- much less sweetness and lower chile effect.

I love Even More Jesus and Bomb!, so this is obviously in my sweet spot (pun intended). Pour is jet black, with a thick and frothy dark tan head. The nose has heaping helpings of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and the slightest bit of chilies.

Fortunately, the chilies come forward in the taste as this warms, to complement the ginormous chocolate and coffee flavors that allow the vanilla to make a brief guest appearance on the encore.

This is spectacular, IMHO.
