This reminds me of a caramel brownie dipped in Kahlua.

Besides AB Noir, probably my favorite Prairie stout. The vanilla really pops but there is a slight aftertaste from the spices but nonetheless, fantastic.

The chocolate, vanilla, coffee, and peppery goodness that wafted out of my glass when poured just a bit cooler than room temperature. The amazing mouth feel and taste, no alcohol burn or taste on the finish but a nice nutmeg and pepper taste. Amazingly wonderful stout this one tops them all.

The pour looks good, a viscous jet black with a moderate, very dark brown head.

The first whiff steps it up a notch. Coffee and vanilla are the dominant aromas, but there is chocolate, a hint of cinnamon, and a peppery spiciness too.

Next comes this whole drinking part. Wow! Wow!! Did I mention wow? Lots of vanilla up front, followed by chocolate, smooth roasted coffee, and cinnamon with very subtle, tamed heat from peppers. Aftertaste is extremely smooth. Not much bitterness, with a lingering hazelnut/ vanilla latte taste with a touch of cinnamon. No alcohol in this one despite the 13% bill.

Body is better than medium for sure. Silky, somewhat creamy with an average amount of carbonation.

This is the only beer that I have had that I would even compare to Hunahpu. I think it sits somewhere in between that and Xocaveza. Just a touch too much vanilla I think (from a vanilla junkie for what it's worth). Would like to see a hair more coffee presence. However, I would say this is probably one of the top one of the top 10-20 stouts I have had. Fantastic.
