12oz bottle oozes into a tulip glass as an onyx body that briefly supports a 1/2in cocoa colored fluffy head.

Aroma and flavor is chocolate, vanilla, and a slightly burnt roast malt. Where the hell is the booze? That is trouble!

Mouthfeel is rich and full.

Overall it is delicious, but the cookies have no crunch.

Pours motor oil black color with a 2 finger foamy tan/brown colored head that faded slowly and left really nice rings as it went down. Prairie imperial stouts always look good and have that ring of foamy around the edge of the glass.

Smells of cocoa, light soy sauce, dark chocolate, roasted malts, Oreo cookies, burnt coffee grinds and cream or half and half. Nose is as much cookie as it is stout, but not cloyingly sweet to inhale. The malty and roasty aspects keep it in line as an imperial stout yet let the Oreo notes come out as the brew swirls in the glass.

Taste follows suit and brings Oreo cookies, cream or half and half, cocoa powder, light soy sauce, dark chocolate, roasted malts, and then molasses, dark fruit, light vanilla, brownie batter, caramel and trailing piney notes. A trace of booze pops up but blends nicely with the malts and sweetness, and really has no ABV burn at all. A definite dessert beer, this seems like an actual Oreo was dunked in a stout. Really well done as it never crosses over into the too sweet zone and remains fairly drinkable even though it's a slow sipper by design.

Poured into a fancy tulip glass. A dark brown color with a thick tan head. Retention was fair and better than expected considering the adjuncts. The nose was faint Oreo along with milk chocolate and vanilla. Oreo flavor was there throughout; vanilla and sugar mixed with chocolate and faint roast. The finish was all cookie. A slight warming on the finish from the ABV. Full bodied and not too sweet. Basically a liquid Oreo cookie with some heat from the alcohol. Constructed as well as I imagine possible for this idea.

L -- Pours a fairly dark black body with a scant half finger of brown head produced with moderate pour. Some retention and lacing
S -- Vanilla yogurt, milk chocolate, graham cracker, maple, booze
T -- Hershey milk chocolate, vanilla frosting, maple syrup, brown sugar, sugar cookie, yogurt-covered raisins. Sweet but not overbearing
F -- Fluffy and silky while remaining remarkably light and drinkable for the ABV
O -- Yep, this does taste like an Oreo in beer form. Good stuff albeit a bit gimmicky

Picked up a 16 oz mason jar draft from the Craft Beer Quick Stop on 12-1-18 for $4.50 (part of their discounting). Consumed on 12-6-18.

Beer poured black as night with a very nice tan head that has settled into a ring.

Nose has hints of sweet mildly roasted malts and light vanilla and chocolate.

Taste is very well balanced between the huge malt base, chocolate, cream, and the hidden hopping.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and very smooth.

Overall this was better than expected. Prairie base beers are pretty sweet so i was concerned my glucose level would be off the charts but the brewer did a nice job keeping it balanced.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing opaque black in the glass with a fizzy,thin brown head that dissipates to sparse patches with slight lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, cocoa and a little lactose, yeah…Oreo, slightly nutty. Flavor follows, with semi-sweet dark toasted malt, cocoa, dark chocolate, vanilla and milk sugar, finishing with lingering cookie chocolate. Medium bodied with light creaminess despite the scary, rather fizzy pour with little head. A Prairie stout is always worth waiting for, but this one sounded a little off-beat, but they nailed it. Both the odd, dry cocoa cookie with a hint of dark chocolate and the milky, light vanilla filling are clear notes here. I'm impressed. A bit on the sweet side, but that can't be a distraction for a stout aged on cookies. Decadent dessert stout.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a thick and viscous jet black color with a one-finger creamy khaki head that has good retention

S- chocolate malt, vanilla cream, chocolate cookie, sugar pastry

T- sweet and malty up front with notes of dark chocolate and roast, followed by a big sugary sweetness that definitely resembles an Oreo. The finish continues to be sweet, with flavors of vanilla cream, caramel and chocolate cookie

M- thick and viscous body with moderate carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel that continues into a thick and chewy finish

O- super sweet, but you can definitely get the Oreo, worth a try

I love - LOVE - Oreos, so this beer is in my sweet spot (pun intended). Jet black pour, dark tan head, very sudsy and breaks apart pretty quickly - the travails of brewing a beer with cookies.

The nose is sweet chocolate, and some creamy notes. Am I sensing a dunking event?

The taste is big chocolate, massive creamy notes, it’s literally an Oreo cookie in a big imperial stout. I’m in love.

The mouthfeel is rich, creamy, and decadent, and I get zero alcohol, which is not possible in an 11.9% ABV beer, IMHO. I am SOOOOOOO glad I have a 2nd onof these to see how it ages.

Pours jet black with very little head or carbonation like other Prairie beers and dessert-style stouts. The taste is very sweet with a good toasted malt undertone. Interestingly I didn't notice Oreo as much as a raspberry taste. Very good. Probably my second favorite behind Birthday Bomb.
