I'm not really a stout fan, but finally bit the bullet and paid the price for a Prairie Bomb! after a lot of encouragement. Coffee smell is outstanding and the pour was great with a nice layer of head. As far as a stout, it's at the top.

From a bottle (cannot make sense of date code and they're not listed on FreshBeer). Poured to my Offero, stemmed Omni glass.
Opaque brownish black, minimum dark head. The beer coats the glass for seconds when swirled.
Aroma of alcohol, caramel, vanilla, fruity coffee. Maybe reminds me of a coffee hard candy from long ago.
The taste is complex on this one. Vanilla start, coffee middle, oak shows up, then chili after almost all liquid is off the tongue.
Mouth feel is even more complex than the taste. A swig coats everything in your mouth until carbonation seems to take hold and magically scrubs everything, chili finishes the mouth cleaning and it all disappears to dry, dry dry.
I see what all the fuss is about with Bomb. If I had to complain I would say its a little too sweet in the middle for me, but a fine beer none the less.
