This monster stout carries a monster price that is difficult to justify, It's great but ...

It pours a beautiful black with lovely little bubbles. The aroma is a sweet malty smell with plenty of alcohol warning of its presence. The taste is a bit malty roasty bite. Huge. This is certainly a wonderful sipping stout. Not quite sublime, but wonderful.

Recommended if someone else is paying for it.

Well done beer out of Prairie Artisans. What this has going for it is the smell. Rich cacao, vanilla, coffee. Taste is very similar with the bitterness of the cacao really pushing through. Can detect the presence at the end of the peppers but very smooth bite. Not overpowering. It's a well crafted beer. I do wish the vanilla shown through.

Dark as pitch. High ABV. High rating on BA. $8.99 for a 12oz bottle. Lots of coffee, some chocolate, some heat from the chili peppers. I'm just not a huge fan. Disappointed.
