12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Tons of vanilla and pecan on the nose, smells great. The vanilla on the palate helps smooth this one out. Bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, pecans on the dessert-like palate. Not overly sweet. Very tasty beer! I'm in the with the smell, the vanilla and pecan notes are just spot on.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into 16.5 ounce teku glass. No bottling date on bottle, which is a bummer.
Look: Pours near solid black, with half inch of tan head. Lacing is evident from the start.
Smell: Malts upfront, with nutty-ness (pecan I'm guessing?), chocolate, and even more malt. Smell wasn't as good as I was hoping.
Taste: Upfront, you get malts, nuttiness, and chocolate which combine into a strange sweetness. The booze really is noticeable on the back end as it kind of bites your tongue. Taste for me is a toss up, because the sweetness and booze seem to be competing rather than working together.
Feel: Feel is medium to thick bodied, with low carbonation. It coats your tongue evenly, and isn't all that heavy on the palate. I quite enjoy the feel to this beer.
Overall: This is an interesting stout. I like the idea of it, but it didn't live up to my expectations. As it warmed up, it was a little more enjoyable, but as said before, the sweetness and booze are unbalanced. I am glad I tried it, but it doesn't stack up to other Prairie offerings that I have had.
Edit: I really started to enjoy it a little more as I sipped on it. The initial shock of the sweetness was overpowering, but it balances out better as it warms. Even though still not one of my all time favorites by Prairie, I am glad that I tried it.

molasses, roast, caramel, nuttyness, sort of cloying sweetness clashes with a touch of booze. an astringent almost metallic off note. not loving this one.
