Reviewed on 4/28/16, from notes

L - Pours oily black with very little head.
S - I get tons of chocolate, chocolate, oh and more chocolate. There are notes of dark roast coffee and chili.
T - The flavors include chocolate, espresso, vanilla, and some chili spice.
F - This is silky smooth with excellent mouth feel
O - An excellent coffee stout with an extra kick of the pepper. Nice combo and a good blend.

Looking forward to trying this one for a long time. OMG this tastes awesome! Rich and creamy beer. Chocolate, coffee and booze abounds. The chili adds a nice tingle that is not over powering. Expensive? Yes. But well worth the price.

Bomb, indeed!

I have actually walked away from Prairie Artisan offerings due to the price, yes, the price. Call me a cheapskate but I just couldn't bring myself to buy an $8 to $10 12oz beer. Well, I won this offering in a FB craft beer page and was so happy when I did - I would actually get to know what the hubbub is all about on these - and boy am I glad. The "Bomb!" has a beautifully chocolate look - deep dark brown, almost black with no head or lacing but really, who cares? (You'll know what I'm talking about when you pour this thing out for yourself.) The smell is a nice blend of chocolate, coffee, hints of vanilla and with no smell of booze, which was surprising considering this brew is at 13% ABV. The mouthfeel was about as perfect as it can get for me - creamy, smooth, and lightly carbonated (exactly like I like it.) The taste was exceptional with an equal blend of coffee and chocolate and the boozy flavor though not prominent as taste, it is prominent as a distinct burning sensation down the throat (something I have not experienced with other high ABVs.) Overall, this beer is definitely outstanding and one I won't hesitate in the future to shell out the bucks...

Coffee chocolate hint of vanilla on the nose. Malt sweetness is the first thing on the palate follwed by the cocao, coffee, and then a bit of the smoky ancho comes in before decent alcohol warmth. Definitely noyice the alcohol but still smooth for a 13%. The flavours stay in your mouth nicely between sips. Very god.
