JBPortland (970) - Portland, Maine, USA - DEC 19, 2013
12oz bottle (blue wax) thanks to Bvdubn! Pours rich brown-black with small tan head. Nose is creamy mocha and milk chocolate, subtle peppery spice in the background. Mouthfeel is lucious and creamy, silky. Taste is rich milk chocolate, cream, mocha, vanilla, roasty coffee. The finish is a bitter cocoa and creamy nougat with a slow onset of very well balanced spicy heat from the peppers which envelops the mouth but never crosses the line. This one’s a winner.

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - DEC 17, 2013
The nose is met head on with chocolate, dark roasted malts, vanilla, coffee, and a shadow of peppers. A dense dark brownish-black pour with a frothy espresso head which creats copious lacing. On the tongue, chocolate and roasted malt, and coffee, are celebrated first followed by the gratifying glow of chili peppers. Full body with moderate carbonation. Rich, thick, creamy mouthfeel. Overall, this is an exceptionally crafted beer. The BOMB! provides an explosion of flavor well worth the wait.

Habanero (2812) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2013
Bottled. Pours clear and deep, dark brown with a small, lacing tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, caramel and a chili notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and with alcohol notes. Full bodied, oily text. and soft carb. An excellent stout.

pushkinwow (2151) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
12oz bottle from ant_wailes. Black with a dark mocha head that almost disappears once poured. Interesting combination of vanilla beans (and it does smell different then vanilla extract, little less sweet and more earthy), bakers chocolate, burnt chocolate malts. No hint of chilli on the nose but I couldn’t figure out why I was starting to get a little bit of a heartburn feeling - then looked at the description and saw that chilli peppers were on the list - don’t usually have any issues with heat but apparently my body detected the heat in this brew! Mild carbonation, moderate+ body, slightly oily, chocolate, bit of sweetness and then becomes bitter, an actual burn sensation on the finish in my gullet. Interesting.

pentaz (1244) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with a lasting creamy small dark brown head. Aroma is coffee, lots of cocoa, vanilla, hard roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is moderate+ sweet and bitter. Body is medium, texture is smooth and oily, carbonation is moderate. Finishes smooth with notes of ash and chili in the far finish. Not overly complex, but coherent, drinkable and super nice stuff.

SlackerMads (1791) - DENMARK - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle at Mikkeller & Friends. Pitch black with a small dark brown head that lives up when you swirl the glass. Nose is dominated by coffee with some chili behind it. More cocoa comes through as it warms up and is quite dominating in the flavour with some light vanilla and burnt malt. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Warming alcohol and a bit stingy on the gums. Medium/heavy sweet with a bitter light astringent finish.

wheresyourball (520) - El Cajon, California, USA - DEC 12, 2013
12oz bottle to tulip. Pours dark brown/black with a medium beige head. Nose is coffee, chocolate, pepper. Flavor reminds me a lot of Huna - some pepperiness with very smooth and full mouthfeel, malt, coffee, chocolate. Good.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2014 One of the best beers on the planet .. .
And obviously, you’re not a serial killer, since you’re smart enough to have purchased this issue of Cosmo and a bottle of Prairie Bomb. However, let your neighbors know you have no intent to kill them by doing the following:
Be almost aggressively friendly. Leave gift baskets on all of your neighbors’ doorsteps at least once a week. Greet them in the street by kissing their feet and presenting them with a hand-crocheted cap. They’ll appreciate the token of your friendship.
Adopt at least 6 cats. This will let your neighbors know that you love small animals, and that you don’t have a secret basement room dedicated to killing them.
Never use anything with fire, ever. Shun candles as instruments of evil. Cook all of your food in your microwave, and turn off the gasoline lines to your house. Break your gas stove, and get rid of your oven. Donate your propane grill.
Remove all window coverings from your house. You don’t need privacy. If you’re not a serial killer, you shouldn’t be afraid of baring it all to let your neighbors know that.
Don’t wear clothes. Because some people are colorblind, they might think that your green shirt is red, and that you’re a blood-fueled murderer. Stop wearing clothes. This will melt away any suspicions that your neighbors have.

Remember, keep reading Cosmo for more great tips that will make your neighbors think you’re perfectly sane and normal! oh, and drink Prairie Bomb, it’s amazing.

This beer is damn near perfection. Holy crap. Huge chili nose up front. More chili than anything else. But the chili is actually very subdued in the taste. Taste is of coffee and vanilla beans, then the hint of chili comes in the back end. This beer is smoother than a freshly polished baby’s ass.
