12oz bottle into a snifter. Delicious base stout complimented with coconut and vanilla. Smooth, thick bodied, alcohol dangerously hidden. Love this beer!

On tap at Bru.

Big head, frothy, dark black.
Cold...needs to warm.

Chocolate, vanilla, coconut is there, but you need to be looking for it. Would like a bit more coconut, but I know not everyone is as much of a coconut fan as me.

Dry roastiness increases as the beer warms and starts to challenge the sweet vanilla flavor.

Served in an over sized wine glass from a 12oz can.

Appearance: Semi thin black body with a tan head rising about half a finger's length.

Smell: Light hop and malt but light, might be and is the weakest property of the beer.

Taste: Malty and semi sweet with hints of vanilla bean. It's bitter and bland all at once. Still tasty but room for improvement.

Mouth: Sticky brew, malty finish with a full body of flavor. After taste is sticky...might be a good thing for a bad thing.

Overall: There was something between a three point seven five and a four that would and should be my overall score. Something is missing from the beer. Maybe prairie spoils me with other gems that I hold them on a higher pedestal. Worth grabbing just don't know if I would grab it again. Always in a glass. Salud.

(2018)

A: Pours jet black with almost no head. Looks oily.

S: Not too much of a nose here, but I get some faint hints of sweet chocolate - maybe some booze.

T: Typical Prairie stout for the base (a good thing). Up front is sweet milk chocolate and coconut. Then comes vanilla and maybe some dark fruit.

M: This is a high-gravity beer. It coats your mouth but doesn't cloy. Very creamy and viscous.

O: Awesome job, Prairie! I love the coconut aspect and I'm glad it wasn't hidden.

I'm surprised to find Prairie at all in the area I live, but am glad to try a whole new brewery's offerings! Can't tell what year it is, maybe 2017? Poured room temp into a plain barrel glass (all my Spieglau snifters chipped and broke!). Dark brown, with a small, tight mocha head. Nose is subdued, but hints of dark chocolate, without any vanilla or coconut. First sips are delicious malt, chocolate, creamy vanilla. I don't taste the coconut, unless it's contributing to that creaminess. It's almost like a dark chocolate milkshake that was allowed to melt to room temp. I was lucky to score two of these. There were more, but the staff had them squirreled away, and might have bought up the rest once I entered their honey hole! Mouthfeel is thick, quick, and leaves that milkshake flavor. Warming keeps the base flavors, with more presence. Good stuff.

12 oz bottle, reasonably fresh. I had this beer this spring while in Florida.

(Wrtten a couple of months after having had it)

Overall I remember that it was really good--especially rich and creamy, but not worth $7; I expect more from an imperial stout that is 13%ABV. I found Stone's W00tstout to be much better.

[IMG] Poured on draft at When Pigs Fly Prairie Artisan Ale Prairie Paradise. Pours pitch black with with no head and leaves very little lace. 4

Smell is boozy, vanilla bean, cocoa, coffee ground, and coconut. 4.25

Taste follows alcohol upfront, with coconut, vanilla, dark chocolate, and strong roasty coffee. 4.5

Mouthfeel is tad bigger than medium, very gentle carbonation, a tad dry, and a sipper that goes down rather quick considering. 4

Overall this is a very nice stout as always with them, would love to sip this on a cold winters night. 4.25
