In the years since it was given to the City in 1955, the 'Prairie' class Steam Locomotive #1073 has been a source of interest and entertainment to young and old alike. Our #1073 is meant for the adult crowd, and we hope it serves you well. This black stout was made using a generous portion of freshly toasted grains as well as a sizable dollop of dark molasses. Hop flavor and aroma is minimal in order to focus the flavor on the toasted malts. O.G. - 16.95°P/1068. Hops - 50 IBUs

A decent stout, not particularly surprising as it comes from Free State. A little "nutty" for my taste; in fact, it reminds me a bit of a chik-O-stick. The hops were surprisingly present, and this was a relief given the sticky opening.

This is just a tasty stout. There is nothing really "adult" about it, the sweetness of the molasses is definitely balanced. Wonderfully smoothed and one to revisit every year.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2003 Thick reddish- black in color, nice thick and creamy tan head, nice lasting lace. Aroma of burnt sugar and chocolate, roasted, coffee, molasses and chocolate, nice burnt bitterness. Medium body with a thick and creamy mouthfeel, burnt bitter and sweet finish, a pretty good stout.

Toasty malt aroma, with a hint of the molasses. Very dark, opaque brown/red color, almost black. Rather nice head, creamy consistency. Flavor profile is most certainly about the dark malts, although there are some hops noticable towards the end. Tastes like there is a nice variety of malts in this beer, not just a couple of kinds. Decent complexity. I like this beer, the molasses adds a nice character, and it’s full of roasted flavors. I wouldn’t call this a dry stout, though... Just not dry enough to fit that category, I suppose.
