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.

Reviewed on 4/29/16, from notes

L - Pours oily black no head.
S - I get lots of chocolate and vanilla with a slight whiskey smell.
T - Bomb, but tangy? Maybe it's the booziness coming through. A little bitter sweet finish.
F - Not quite as mouthy as bomb. A little thin.
O - Not better than the base beer.

Great mouth feel. Nice smell of booze and chocolate. Pours a nice dark black, very viscous. Mouth feel is nice and smooth. Chile and vanilla comes through nicely at the end.
