Drank Oct 3rd 2018. Purchased in OKC at a local store.

Dark, dark appearance with approx 1/2 inch of thick head. Very thick feel, like a thin syrup almost. Taste is out of this world. One of the best I’ve tried, easily. Overall, very very good brew. Prairie, you’re doing it right! That said, this amazing brew ain’t cheap. One of the more expensive 12 ox bottles I’ve picked up. But I tell you, it’s worth it to at least try it once. I’m gonna go buy a couple more bottles despite the price. It’s worth it.

Vintage: 2015
Poured from bottle into tulip, good 1 finger dark tan head, good retention and lacing. Jet black in the glass, no light gets thru. Smells of chocolate, caramel, vanilla, roasted malt and slight hint of apple, not much. Taste is deep roasted malt, and chocolate, very rich. There is vanilla, caramel, and some apple coming thru in the middle. The end has a slight mouth numbing alcohol finish, not hot, just warming. Mouthfeel is wonderful, great beer, great sipping beer. I want to kick myself for not grabbing more of this when I had a chance. I think I still have a 2016 in my cellar. Looking forward to it.
One thing to note, as the beer warms (started it at 48) that numbing alcohol finish turns into a lingering taste of apple brandy. Man this beer is special

2016. Raisins, chocolate, and booze. Tastes like a you simmered red apples in brandy.
