4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
I think I was lost by the Prairie Bomb and Merica, but this one is pretty darn good! You can smell the aroma of espresso and chocolate. Dark as oil. Lacy head. The cocoa nibs and booze are detectable. Full bodied. Complex beer. Reviewers say the chili is pronounced but I did not detect any heat. It is shamelessly good. I’d love to try this one on tap. Or maybe even buy it andvpull it out in December.

No. 400, and 75th impy. Bottle (thanks Matt!), thick and black beer, thick walnut colored head. Aroma smoke, toasted barley, anise, vanilla, oak, chocolate. Taste is vanilla, smoke, oak, anise, molasses, black licorice, coffee, spice (peppers?), and smoke on the finish. Very complex. The Flavors play off all over tha palate. Reminds me of barfly with pearls. Palate is rich and thick, carbonation subdued. Finish nearly dry, the hops just peeking through, mingling with the smoke and toasted barley, the licorice, a hint of oak...oh yeah.

So amazing. Slightly more chili than prairie bomb. The flavor lasts longer as the beer cools.
