12oz bottle poured into a balloon glass

A- pours a deep black color with some light creeping through on the edges, small foamy khaki head that eventually disappears

S- plenty of barrel aromas up front, with an emphasis on port. Undertone of coffee, espresso, mocha cream, hazelnuts, woody oak & bourbon barrel juice

T- heavy port barrel up front, followed by notes of dark chocolate, fig, black cherry & currant. Mid-palate brings out some bourbon barrel and coffee. The finish gives dark roasted malt, char, bourbon, woody oak, cinnamon, vanilla & port

M- medium-heavy body with low carbonation leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel and a creamy warming finish

O- double barrel treatment adds a whole new complexity that makes for an outstanding stout

I don't know what it is, I'm not a fan of prairie beers. I keep trying them because everyone says they're great, but my palate doesn't enjoy them! So besides the taste, the look, smell, and feel were very good!
