This is simply a fantastic BA stout!!! Bomb! is super well-balanced, but the barrel aging process seemed to really bring out the vanilla in the vintage we tried, which can be a bad thing if it's not good vanilla but this seemed like high quality stuff. Wish I had more

It would be easier for me to talk about the things that I do not like about this beer.
1. They are not always available.
2. While they do not age poorly, adjuncts fade and I have found that I prefer them fresh. The chili fade is particularly noticeable when drinking an aged one next to a fresh one.

This along with a few other Prairie stouts is as good as it gets for me. I have had phenomenal offering from Bottle Logic, Goose Island, Ozark, and 3 Floyds. To me this stands toe to toe with them all.
