look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

No date but just recently released in the last month or so? Who knows. Red waxed 12 ounce bottle.

A: Pitch, pitch, pitch black pour. Very large, very dense, very dark brown head. Head fades very very slowly, leaving quite heavy lacing behind. Great retention.

S: Big big coffee aroma. Huge roasted coffee beans, quality beans at that. Lots of cocoa adds a mocha-like effect. Just a hint of sting from the chili peppers but barely. Really nice sharp, bold aroma.

T: Again with the big roasted coffee bean but not AS overpowering as the aroma. A little smoother here too, not as sharp. Still pretty much dominates. Mild bittersweet chocolate mixes with the coffee and stands alone in the middle. Just a brief hint of chili pepper in the aftertaste but it's obliterated by everything else. Lingering mild chili pepper and bitter mocha between sips. Zero sign of alcohol especially for the 14%.

M: Heavy and thick and slightly astringent.

O: A beer with so much potential but didn't quite reach it. No sign of vanilla and barely any sign of the chili peppers. This is basically a big and wonderful coffee stout with a little chocolate to back it up. If I didn't know it had vanilla and chili beans I doubt I ever would have picked it up. The coffee pretty much dominates the whole brew BUT it is delicious coffee so how can I really complain? I had just hyped it up as more, if I'm honest. One of the times where hypes detracts from the experience, unfortunately. Don't get me wrong, fantastic coffee stout regardless. With just a litttle bit of heat. Super easy drinking for 14% with no sign of booze.

I was looking forward to this one but, while it is certainly good, I don't enjoy it nearly as much as many appear to. The alcohol heat is too intense (does this beer need to be this strong?), which negatively impacts the whole experience. The vanilla and chili mix well together, but I end up with the impression that this beer is all about the additional flavours, making it hard to get at the base beer. That said, the vanilla tastes great and the slight heat is pleasant; the whole package is quite luxurious, but for the heat. It's very good, but if it was toned down a bit I think it would be a real improvement.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 oz bottle with blue wax.

A: Pitch black - no light getting through this one. Medium brown head. Really nice looking.

S: Aroma explosion. Mostly dark chocolate in the nose with some coffee and roasty malt.

T: Way sweeter than I had anticipated based on the nose. Huge sweet milk chocolate upfront blended really well with hop bitterness. As the chocolate flavor fades, sweetness is left on the tongue and the coffee presence is more noticeable. The chili flavor was the last thing I noticed and it was exactly as prevalent as I hoped it would have been, not overly imposing at all but just a really note subtle note. I never would have guessed that this is a 14% beer.

M: Very smooth. Less thick than I would have imagined and medium carb.

O: Worth trading for. A very exceptional stout that boasts huge and unique flavors with great drinkability.

Bought a single 12 oz bottle from Gabriels Beer Warehouse in San Antonio while on travel.
Appearance is that of your typical top flight stout. Smell is heavy on the coffee and a little chocolate. Taste is very solid, but like the smell it was just a little too heavy on the coffee and hop finish. I really liked the subtle hint of chile but its very slight so its added very well. Biggest highlight to me is how this 13% beer is so light and not boozy at all. Feels like an 8% Stout. Overall I highly recommend a sampling but I can't quite put it into that top tier with a small handful of others that I liked better.

A HUGE thanks to @CRJMellor for sending me this in a trade. Super stoked to get to finally try this highly acclaimed brew.

12oz. Bottle poured into tulip.

I can smell the chocolatey, vanilla spiciness as soon as I pop the cap. Pours a black, black, viscous body with a chocolate brown two finger head that dissipates at a medium pace. I can also smell all the ingredients: coffee, cacao, vanilla, and chile peppers. Taste is more, a lot more of the same, deliciousness that hit the nose. Overall, I really loved this beer. Really glad I was able to try it, and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a complex stout that blends its flavors with the utmost harmony.

Purchased bottle in April maybe in Arkansas and checked it home on the plane. Opened 11/11/14. My 1,000th review!
Pours an oily black color with minimal tan head into cigar city snifter.
Huge vanilla, chocolate, coffee, roasted aromas...maybe I can smell a hint of the pepper.
Taste is big vanilla...lots of roasted malts, chocolate, and then ends with a nice bite of heat. Its not over sweet at all....not over done with the heat...not over anything, its damn near perfect. Chugable, yet full of so much flavor. I absolutely love this brew,

tangerine-colored wax, my bottle says 13%.
opened bottle, smelled chocolate/espresso cream.... poured into glass, still laced with Pliny resin, and got a nice layer of chocolate milk-looking head, mostly chocolate brown (of course) but with spots of white(?). strong chocolate aromas, no chiles, and a tad of dark roasted coffee. taste is very flavorful. lots of chocolate; smooth chocolate without the bitterness. slight espresso bitterness. some vanilla. again, very smooth... slightly carbonated, but not much. this is so much easier to drink then Bourbon County in comparing the abv. similar to a Mogli from Caldera in the huge chocolateness.... this stuff would be awesome over some vanilla ice cream!
considering the abv, and the taste, and the sweetness vs bitterness, this one is AWESOME!!! it's beautiful, although standard-looking on the pour, excellent in the aroma and taste departments, and just feels good even after it's down the throat. no nasty aftertaste. no bitterness; jus a lingering chocolate/espresso cream... cheers!
oh yeah... and I LOVE the 12 oz bottle!!! awesome stuff!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured into a snifter.

3.5 A: Black color. About half a finger of frothy light brown head formed and quickly fell. A short interrupted ring of lacing is left.

4.75 S: Wow, you can really smell the flavors in this without really trying. It's a super potent spicy crème brulee type of aroma. Cocoa nibs, coffee, vanilla beans all stand out in the open with the chiles adding a spicy heat. The base offers a smooth, supple roastiness, layers of chocolate and caramel, and sweet neutral malts. Really nice nose.

4.75 T: Like the nose, the additives blend magnificently and run the show. The chiles are immediately noticeable with a perfectly complementary level of heat. Nibs, vanilla, and coffee are all running on all cylinders. Sweet overall with a soft roastiness, caramel, molasses, and neutral sweetness.

4.5 M: Heavier medium to heavy body. Good moderate carbonation. Pleasantly creamy and super smooth. Booze is minor and well hidden with a light warming finish.

4.75 D: Really loving this beer. One of the best non-BA beer out there.

12 Fl Oz. bottle
Served in a Prairie snifter

This beer pours black and is topped with an inch of mocha head that leaves no lacing.

I smell coffee right off the bat. As I stuck my nose in for further discovery I could smell some chili peppers. I smell some chocolate too.

Now the taste is more coffee and chocolate with the peppers in the background. The vanilla adds a little sweetness.

Full mouthfeel with low carbonation

This is a delicious beer. It is one of the rare beers that lives up to the hype. I don't recommend holding on to it for over a year though.

On tap at the local taphouse during their 4th of July takeover.

Pours a very dark brown colour, mocha head; foamy, nice uneven sinking. Awesome lacing. Looks amazing.

Smellls very bitter, loads of spicy espresso coffee on there. Roasty, slightly charred. Slight meaty hint. Smells pretty good. Bit bitter though and coffee-heavy.

Taste is sweeter. Unsweetened chocolate all the way through with more cocoa rich flavour upfront, then notes of espresso, pepperberry and smokey lamb. I'm not kidding. Pretty impressive, but very strong and lots of very bitter notes.

Full, pretty fluid. Touch of warming alcohol. Actually more of a shove in the throat rather than a touch.

Impressive impy stout. Big, and really spicy. Pleasant sipper.

Original and revisit bottle (revisit in Nov on date 11115, end of March?)

A: dark brown/black (amber hue on edges when held to light)
Revisit: pour looked thick and oily. No carbonation rising on a medium pour - just some straggling bubbles. Somehow a fishing wire line of bubbles appear at edge

S: chocolate and coffe, roasted malt-style, with a hint of vanilla
Revisit: same, but very rich in its impression

T: more chocolate than coffee, and the vanilla is more present. I had noted other reviews' mention of chile and forgot, but I noted something different in the latter part of the taste. My girlfriend reminded me while reading one of those reviews, and a light bulb went off! It's subtle but obvious, and very interesting.
Revisit: definitely rich chocolate, the nibs I am starting to recognize in beers as I've had more. Vanilla and actually a raisin/rum fig flavor makes an appearance. Alcohol provides a little heat and I still get the hint of chili pepper.

M: little alcohol tinge, but stands up for the style of a malt-roasted beer
Revisit: Full bodied, but a bit oily and coating of the mouth.

O: a wonderful beer that has a few things going on, but it's gravy on top of a solid imperial stout. I am enjoying this style more and more, thanks to beers like this.

Revisit: lived up to my recollection. Wish it looked a little better, but a minor flaw in a wonderful beer.

Pours a pitch black with minimal amount of tan head.
Smells of huge chocolate and vanilla, some roasty barley notes, hint of coffee and caramel.
Taste is very well balanced between all of the components, though I'm not getting much of the chili pepper. Vanilla, Coffee, Chocolate are all present, but none are dominant. Lots of roasty, dark malt notes as well. A bit of toffee and a hint of dark fruit.
Very slick on the mouth. Does not feel like 13%.
Very good beer that isn't far off from being an amazing beer.

Bottle of this from Doodler in a recent box. Cheers man!

From a bottle into a snifter
Gold wax
Coffee, cacao, vanilla beans and chili peppers.
Nordaggios coffee

APPEARANCE: Muddy black pour yields a three finger, foamy, medium tan head with very good retention. Jet black body with slightly higher levels of carbonation. Slowly fades to a full foam cap, then a wisp and ring. A simple ring remains but leaves no lacing down the glass.

SMELL: All the adjuncts are there. Chilies are first, with coffee, vanilla and cacao nibs, showing up in that order. Light roast, sweet cream and milk chocolate notes. Everything is really balanced in the nose. Can't get much better than this really. Bold and wonderful.

TASTE: Really flavorful with vanilla, chocolate and light roasted notes up front. Creamy chocolate and coffee through the middle into a big and lingering finish of bitter chocolate and coffee, sweet milk chocolate, vanilla, sweet cream and some spicy chilies. Chilies are well measured and give a little bite and heat in the aftertaste, but aren't overpowering. Lots of adjuncts but they're all well there and well balanced. Perhaps a touch too much heat lingers, but just great.

PALATE: Medium body and slightly higher carbonation. Creamy smooth on the palate, goes down smooth with a chili scratch at the swallow, finishing slightly mouth-coating. A chili bite and some heat lingers, but still really good.

OVERALL: This is excellent. Could be a touch thicker and a have a touch less carbonation for top marks, I'm really getting nit picky here. Fantastic, and there's no way this is actually 14% ABV either. Easily equal to Mexican Cake, and a tick below Huna. World class in any respect. Thanks again Doodler. Highly recommended.

Pours an inky black with only a wispy tan covering. Aroma is deep and dark...equal parts cocoa nibs and coffee beans with a soft vanilla sweetness and waft of dried chilies. Dark chocolate cake and a cup of sweetened coffee in the mouth. Booze is remarkably absent in the nose and flavor, just a little warmth in the throat that works with the subtle spice. Silky, moderately full body - again, easy enough to drink that you'd have no idea this was such a big beer. I generally have a hard time with massive, under-attenuated, sticky-sweet beers and this thankfully isn't one of them. Absolutely worth the cost of a bottle every once in a while as a treat. Fantastic!

12 oz. bottle, bottled on April 21, 2015 printed in Julian code on the bottleneck. Finally I have acquired a bottle of Prairie Bomb!, 'Imperial stout aged on coffee, cacao nibs, vanilla beans, and chili peppers'. per the label.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - it pours a dark inky black with hardly any conjuration of head at all. Some dark mocha skims the glass and leaves lots of good sticky lacing when given a nice swirl.

S - A luscious aroma greets the senses. This thing is literally bursting with gooey chocolatey goodness and authentic freshly grinded coffee beans. Smells sticky, gooey, & creamy. Smells absolutely delicious.

T - Taste follows the nose: very smooth & creamy. Lots of gooey chocolate / cacao nib goodness steals the show for me. Very authentic freshly brewed coffee flavor. The vanilla beans are present, but are mostly lost to the other flavors. The chili peppers lend only a very subtle heat on the finish. Roasty, with mild notes of char, and a mild metallic note that is just a bit off-putting for me. Very complex stuff.

M - The mouthfeel is extremely smooth & creamy, especially at 13.00% abv. Medium-full bodied with low lying carb. Still, very easy-drinking stuff considering the high abv.

Overall, an excellent stout from Prairie Artisan Ales, it's no wonder this beer is so highly acclaimed. Would definitely be interested in seeing how other variants of this one fare.

Prairie Bomb! -----4.5/5

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a pitch black body with a golden foam 1 inch thick that quickly dissipated into almost nothing.
Nose is full of chocolate, not getting a ton of coffee. Just chocolate laced with chocolate and a hint of chili... Lots of ashy/campfire too
Tasting a bit heavy still on the ash tray/campfire but chili really comes through, cocoa nibs are bitter as expected
Medium body. Possibly medium-full but rich and thick flavors
Overall I am appreciating this much more than the first time I ever tried it (was nearly a drain pour)... Maybe my pallet has changed but this is a rich/chocolatey smooth imperial stout with some nice chili heat coming through to sooth the throat

12 ounce bottle into a snifter.

Pours really dark, thick looking, no light passing through this one. No head, oily cling coats the glass. The smell is wonderful, one of the best I can remember. Strong cacao, vanilla, coffee, even the chilies all come through clearly. Also malt and a great malted milk ball aroma. Taste leads with chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla. More chilies than the nose- but no real heat, less coffee. Just delicious. Very smooth and creamy, a real tongue coater that lingers.

No closing comment that's different from everyone else. The clarity and intensity of the flavors is stunning.

A- Pours like a thick chocolate syrup. Foamy/frothy mocha-colored head sits upon a very thick, dark dark brown body.

S- Dark chocolate, vanilla, hints of red peppers, roasty malts, roasted coffee.

T- Big, bold flavors of dark chocolate, bitter coffee, vanilla, hints of peppers, huge roastiness. Great combination of flavors with no huge sweetness, but huge complexity. The hints of peppers add another level of flavor, but it does not overpower like some beers with peppers.

M- The mouthfeel is the highlight of this beer. Frothy, creamy, extremely drinkable for a 14% monster. Maybe the slightest sign of alcohol, but the peppers somewhat mask even the littlest alcohol presence. Insanely good mouthfeel.

O- A great beer for sure. Complex, great feel, great flavors. Perhaps the best non barrel-aged imperial stout I have had.

12oz gold wax bottle, poured into a teku glass

A- pours motor oil black with a small dark tan creamy & foamy head that reduces to a ring around the edges with some short lasting lace and alcohol legs upon agitation

S- robust roasted malt aroma with a big hit of smoky/charred wood, followed by deep aromas of dark artisanal chocolate, espresso beans, walnut, vanilla beans & dark fruits. There is a whipped cream-like sweetness that kicks in. Picking up slight heat on the nose, but it honestly seems from the alcohol and not so much the chili

T- The flavor of the chili hits the palate first, immediately followed by lots of dark chocolate with fresh herbal & earthy coffee flavor. The addition of the vanilla beans seems to enhance the chocolate & coffee, notes of caramel & dark fruits follow. I'm not really picking up any heat from the chills, but the flavors are there. More bitter chocolate and coffee on the finish

M- medium body with medium low carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a creamy, slightly warming finish. Pretty drinkable for 14% ABV

O- The coffee is infused brilliantly and meshes with the other adjuncts almost flawlessly. The only thing I would have like to see more of was a bit more heat form the chills.

Picked up a single from Craft Beer Hop Stop on 1-19-17. I believe it was bottled on 12-19-16.

Beer poured blacked with a nice tan head that is leaving some lacing.

Nose is roasted chilies, vanilla, coffee, and chocolate.

Initial taste was a medium dose of hot chilies on the back of the throat. Subsequent sips reveal vanilla coffee with a hint of chocolate finishing with the chili warmth.

Mouthfeel was medium to full bodied and smooth.

Overall a very tasty brew that is definitely worth seeking out!

A huge, huge want for a while. Major thanks to my friend, Eddie, for hooking me up with a bottle.

A: Black with a really nice two finger mocha colored head. Given the ABV, I wasn't expecting much from the appearance, but this is a looker. Tons of lace coats the glass after each sip.

S: An absolutely fantastic blend of vanilla, freshly roasted coffee and chili. The vanilla is rich, almost custard like. I don't know that I've ever come across this much vanilla in a beer before. The coffee isn't overpowering, but complements the vanilla really well. And the chili smells like roasted ancho, very smoky and dark. Together, these are incredible.

T: Layers upon layers of mouth coating vanilla and chocolate. Mocha and chili round it out with just a hint of a burn from the peppers on the finish. Powdery cocoa, dark chocolate, fudge and some marshmallow. Finish has some light char, earthy pepper notes and just that little hint of heat. Tastes about 5%. I can't believe this is 14. Bravo, Prairie.

UPDATED 7/21/16 - On tap at the Anchor in Wichita - a bit hotter than normal. I am knocking the Taste down to 4.5
UPDATED 6/18/15 - On tap at The Anchor in Wichita

At Church Key. Poured into a small snifter.

Complex is stating the obvious. Are there better imperial stouts, maybe, BUT this is one of my top beers. Worth the effort to find! I knew this beer was highly rated, but I had not read the detail, so though the brewer indicates that they used chilies, I could not directly discern those tastes. 4.75

A – Pours black with a brown head that quickly dissipates, but easily brought back with a swirl. Good lacing. Some alcohol legs. 4.75

S – Fantastically rich aroma, BIG milk (probably the vanilla in hindsight) and dark chocolate, roasted malts, sweetness, faint dark fruit, coffee is subdued in my opinion, alcohol but not solventy 5

T - Rich, roasted malts, dark chocolate, low bitterness, on the sweet side, alcohol, but just enough, nice balance for such a huge beer. 4.75

MF - Relatively smooth for all of the ABV, a little creamy, some alcohol but not the ABV bomb you might expect at 14 percent. 4.75

Pours a velvetty smooth, light and dark brown at first, then black takes over at full pour, with a thin tan head.

Balanced levels of vanilla, chocolate, coffee and stout on the nose. The coffee lends a sort of sweet, fruitiness to it.

The coffee fruitiness comes through on the taste as well. Chili contributes when swirled around the tongue, but does not heat up on the backend, which is quite nice and different than the norm. As it warms, the chili does become more prominent.

This is a very well balanced, smooth and substantial brew. I did not realize it was 13% until after I finished it off and looked at the bottle a second time. However, do not sit on these. I've had a rather lengthily aged one, and it lost all coffee and vanilla elements, even the chili was gone, and was replaced by raisin and prune almost exclusively.

The bottle label has 13.0% ABV vice 14.0%.

The body appears India ink black with a thin, wispy dark brown head; sediment left in the bottle. Deep and rich aroma of coffee grounds, charred grain, and chocolate. The taste exudes vanilla, cocoa, and sour cherries; boozy; cigarette ash. Heavy bodied; rich and smooth; velvety mouthfeel.

My goodness, what a heavenly, heavy brew! Big, bold, and rich throughout with incredibly robust and earthy dark tones in appearance, aroma, and flavor! Depth and complexity galore and a perfect find for RIS/double stout fans. Most definitely a dark ale flavored road-trip in a bottle!

And I love the catfish on the bottle cap (not that that has anything to do with the beer or its taste appeal -- it just looks cool)...
