Poured from a bottle (bottled 10-14-19), moderately aggressive pour produced a small, dark amber head which dissipated fairly quickly and left minimal lacing. Smell of hazelnut is very forward. Very heavy on the tongue. To me, it tasted like drinking a brownie. Very smooth and sweet, with overpowering hazelnut and chocolate/coffee notes. Fun to try, but one is enough for me!

There's a nose of boozy chooolate fruit. Smooth drinking that tastes of ... hazelnut. There's no bite from the ABV. There's a beige ring that follows my sips to the emptying glass. There.

At 57 degrees, pours inky black with ruby edges; fast, fizzy reddish brown head disappears in the blink of an eye, leaving no cap and the thinnest of rings on agitation; no lace, no legs. Roast coffee bean nose. Dark chocolate, bitter dark roast coffee, light spicy peppers; nutty finish on top of roasted beans. Medium light body, moderate minus carbonation; a bit of a bite on the tip of the tongue; some warmth from 11% abv. Overall a very good tasting coffee stout, but at $8.99 12/oz bottle I was hoping for more; I felt like I was drinking BOMB! Lite, missing the heat and the layers of flavors; glad I tried it, but one and done for me...

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

The pour is jet black, like motor oil, with a finger of soft mocha head. The head leaves a ring of cobwebs around the glass before settling into a thin crown.

The aroma brings notes of sweet milk chocolate, roasted hazelnuts, bitter coffee, brown sugar, vanilla and molasses.

The flavor comes exactly as advertised: Milk chocolate with fresh roasted hazelnut coffee. There's some subtle notes of vanilla, molasses, and brown sugar with the foggiest idea of sweet dough. This one is very sweet but not cloying.

The feel is full-bodied with very low carbonation. Thick, syrupy and smooth. The alcohol is present on the finish.

Overall, this is a great imperial stout that once again comes exactly as advertised. There's a ton of chocolate and hazelnut coffee here. It's right there on the bottle. It's very sweet but never cloying, and has a nice roasted malt balance.

Decent stout appearance, scant head/ lacing, rich body appearance.
Nose is toasted hazelnut with a hint of booze. A sweet molasses pokes through, as does some chocolate. Very nice.
Taste is rich toasted malts with molasses and coffee, brown sugar and a nice vanilla note to go along with the sweet hazelnut. Well done on the hazelnut!
Feels medium, medium-low carbonation, and sticky.
Tasty stuff, yet another example of why Prairie crafts some of the best imperial stouts in the U.S.A.’s midsection.
