On tap at the Bottle Shop: Druid Street. Pours black with small tan head. Lots of chocolate, roasted coffee, vanilla, bit spicy. Sweetish but just right. Thick and oily. Bit warming, but alcohol is well hidden. Smooth. Full bodied, complex. Truly a great brew.

Bottle in trade from Rightcross55, thanks buddy. Dark pour, almost no head. Aroma is sweet chocolate and chilli pepper. Taste has some espresso, chocolate, slight chilli pepper, and coffee. Alcohol is well hidden. Very well done. Prairie just doesn’t miss.

4.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a big beer. Boozy and tasty. Viscous black pour. Creamy brown head that lasts a long time. Very little nose. Sweet on the front end, heavy coffee and bitter on the back end. This beer has a thick substantial body. Some of the best coffee flavor I have had in a beer. I wish I could find this more easily.

Gift from John L. The aroma is malt, coffee, roadty coffee. Pours black with tan head,mostly diminishing and very good lacing. The taste is bitter, deep and thick. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish light bitter. Excellent!

Pours a very deep dark brown. Aroma is wonderful and boozy with dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla, dark fruit and a little pepper. Actually more pepper in the aroma than in the taste. Taste is rich and full with dark chocolate, dark coffee, vanilla, sweet dark fruit, and burnt butterscotch - really beautifully balanced and completely satisfying.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2016 (33 cl bottle in wine glass.) Pours black and silent as midnight. Gives of a thin yet lively head. Aroma is dense with cocoa and sweet coffee while the taste has well enough chili to burn through the thick brew just enough.

At Cafe Sara, august 6th 2015. Black body, thin brown head covering it all. Deep chocolate aroma with vanilla, roast, raisin and pepper. Taste is strong and fullbodied, sweet chocolate, coffee, chili burn without dominating, rich flavour. Perfectly balanced, hard to find alcohol in the taste. Delicious dessert finish with roast, vanilla and a hot chiliburn lasting. Extremely well crafted!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.355 l bottle from ’Saveur Bière’, assumingly 2015 vintage. Pitch black with a thin, frothy, brown layer. Sweetish, moderately roasty, slightly peppery and a little boozy aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla and mocca. Sweet, roasty taste of dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, mocca and licorice, followed by a long, roasty-bitter, peppery and slightly warming finish. Full body, creamy and viscid mouthfeel, almost flat. Really tasty, superb mouthfeel, just at the edge of being too peppery. Overall very good!
