Stubby 12oz. bottle picked up in a local Carlsbad, CA shop. All I can pick up from the incoherent “bottling info” is that it was done as 11:47. Good slobbering poodles. How hard is it to put a date on a bottle?

The pour is blech brown, barely any visible carbonation. The nose is heavy handed malts, fall nuts, whiskey, & wood. Appealing.

This Okie sucked a lot of whiskey out of the barrel. Whiskey etches a warm path from throat to belly, & leaves plenty of the taste around in my mouth, too. Yowza. Boozy, whiskey, wood. Hello, Prairie? Did you put any beer in my bottle? There’s an indistinct nuttiness & a sweetness probably leeching out of the malts, with a big sprig of figs coming to the fore as the beer warms. I don’t like figs. Weirdly thin for a 12% beer, & I’m already feeling full after about half the bottle.

There is no dispute that Prairie crafts world-class stouts. This is a muddy, muddled, murky mess of a beer with a premium price tag that I would not pay again. Barely acceptable at half the cost.

look: Hazy orangish brown. Modest tan head on the pour that mostly recedes. Sparse but messy lingering lacing.
smell: caramel, toffee, mild vanilla bourbon.
taste: much like the nose. Smooth, no booze detected. "Subtly rich".
