355 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Imperial Stout with Oreo. ABV is 11.9%. Brewed for Prairie Artisan Ales by Krebs Brewing Co. Pitch black colour, small tan head. Aroma of roast malts, molasses, alcohol, chocolate, vanilla, coffee and Oreo cookies. Warming mouthfeel. Very sweet flavour with the same elements as the aroma, noticeable bittering hops in the finish. Recommended for sharing.

12 ounce bottle into a snifter. Fall 2018 release, had 12/29/20.

Pours near black and opaque, with a little flash of darker foam and no lacing. Aromas of roasted malt, chocolate, cocoa, some vanilla. Mostly similar flavors- chocolate, vanilla, malt, raisins, some caramel, light molasses. Smooth, a very good full body, appropriately carbonated on the low side.

This did not age well, as evidenced by the one- third bottle of Oreo sludge that settled. My fault for not having it sooner. But, have had many stouts aged at least two years that held up far better. Looks like it would be pretty good, fresh….

Very dark, the brown head and recedes right away; The aroma is rich but not strong; mouthfeel is smooth, not much carbonation; Taste is full-bodied, strong, alcohol; I would like this ale a lot better if it weren't almost flat.

This was quite possibly the best Prairie Artisan I have had to date...

...Simply outstanding. From the dark, practically black look of the beer to the almost perfectly blended smell of malts, booze, and oreo, to the creamy mouthfeel - the damn this was delicious without being a dessert beer at all. The taste was not sweet, not overly boozy, and was just a joy to drink from beginning to end.

One of my all-time favorite beers, Prairie nails "Oreo Stout" right on the head. Dark as hell, with a heavy vanilla-forward taste. Any bitterness comes from the chocolatey notes. The body is not unlike an Oreo, resembling that of a crunchy, crumbly cookie. Very little head, which I definitely prefer in a stout.

Pours a pitch-black color with a thin brown foamy head. Head retention is good. Lacing is very good. Nice roasted aroma with chocolate, vanilla, and very mild licorice. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla and some licorice at the end. It is a little lighter than I expected, but still medium to heavy bodied with moderate carbonation. It is definitely a tasty beer.

A - Pours pitch black with a thin tan head. Heavy amount of soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is dark chocolate and roasted malts.

T - The taste is dark chocolate, vanilla, black licorice and roasted malts.

M - Medium body with low carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a soft dry finish.

O - This is a tasty stout. Not really getting much Oreo flavor, but still tasty nonetheless.

Pours dark brown almost black at 56 degrees with fast fizzy tan cap that disappeared immediately; oily residue on top; no ring or lace; no legs. Chocolate cookie nose. Taste is vanilla and semi sweet chocolate; booze on finish. Smooth feel, full minus body, moderate minus carbonation; some alcohol bite (11.9%) on the tip of tongue. Overall, not a good looking beer; it kinda does taste like an Oreo cookie dunked in booze, but disappointing given the high price tag.

Small glass from draught @ Zeezicht, Breda. Pours a black colour and a beige/light brown head with little retention. Aroma's are sweetish, roasty and boozy. Retronasal it's sweet, chocolate, a bit boozy, roasty and some cork or moss? Flavour is heavy sweet, chocolate, roasty. Full bodied. Moderate to strong alcohol feel. Long finish. A little too normal for a Prairie Stout. Then again, I'm not a fan of Oreo.

Not too into this beer. First off, after a few hours in the glass, there’s still some light foam on top and a couple of small white clumps that if I didn’t know better, would think they are actually bits of Oreo cream filling so I can get the authentic experience. Second, it’s just too sweet for me. I’m not a fan of Southern Tier’s dessert stout series and this one strikes me as the same type of beer. Will probably finish about three quarters of it for review purposes and toss the rest. First time I haven’t enjoyed a Prairie stout. Oh well. They all can’t be winners.

12 oz. bottle purchased in OK. Poured into Aslin anniversary glass and allowed to warm.

L: Small brown head, poor retention, nothing left after a moment. Beer is dark black.

S: Some Oreo cookie nose, some roasted malts. Not impressive, really.

T: Burned malts, bitter, some Oreo cookie (not the filling)

F: Full-bodied, not much carbonation. Construction and balance are "eh"

O: Man is this a disappointment coming from Prairie Artisan. They usually kill these.

Had poured from 12-oz. bottle, stamped illegibly, gift from friend, into snifter.

Roasted malts are mild, but the sweet chocolate cookie is balanced by the big alcohol.

Received from @jdell15 in NBS BIF #9. Reviewed 5/5/19. Thanks Jacob!
Marked on the base of the neck in microscopic green printing “25481?D3?A3 (above) 17351 (above) 296?10”. Stored at 42 degrees and served at 60 degrees in a hand washed and dried Jester King snifter.
Appearance – 3.5.
First pour – Dark brown, translucent.
Body – Dark brown/black, opaque.
Head – Tiny (Maximum one cm, aggressive center pour), brown, high density, fizzy, gone in five seconds leaving neither crown nor cap.
Lacing – None.
Aroma – 3 – I’ve been sniffing this intermittently for several minutes and, other than a bit of dampness, cannot detect any aroma.
Flavor – 3.5 - Begins mostly sweet with no identifiable flavor. In the middle, a burst of alcohol comes through. Ends slightly acrid with tons of alcohol, some licorice, and yes, Oreo tops and bottoms. No hops, no dimethylsulfide, no diacetyl.
Palate – 3.25 - Full, almost creamy, fizzy. By the end the fizziness has degraded to merely lively carbonation.
Impression and interpretation – 3 - Loses 0.25 point for needing a microfiche reader and a secret decoder ring to translate the neck cipher. It does end tasting like Oreos – the bread part of the sandwich, not the crème filling. Some diacetyl would have enhanced the flavor. Overall, a very mediocre booze bomb from Prairie Artisan.

Pours black with a dark mocha head. Aroma is vanilla, espresso, chocolate with a hint of that Oreo cream filling. Flavor is a wonderful bitter roast character with vanilla, cookie and espresso. A thick mouthfeel and a warm finish make this beer quite enjoyable.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter.

L: Pours thick and black with a minimal 1/8" dark tan head that dissipate very quickly. Leaves a decent crown around the rim that creates very little lacing.

S: Not very strong. Just a bit of milk chocolate, some cream, slight vanilla and booze.

T: Fairly sweet up front. I pick up chocolate, caramel, cream and vanilla on the backend. Finish is very close to the aftertaste of Oreos, so that's where you really pick it up. Booze comes through stronger in the finish with a pleasant stout bitterness.

F: Very chewy. Very close to syrup. Carbonation is light with a very heavy body.

O: Honestly, Bomb! is better. I was very excited about this because it sounded like a sweet stout right up my alley. Not as complex as I'd hoped. It's not bad, but I'd say it's on the weaker side of Prairie's stouts.
