Appearance - black. No head. Aroma - slightly sweet. Hints of chocolate. Terrifically light. Mouth - slightly more carb than the pour suggested. Not as oily and viscous but I would consider it low carb. Taste - very gentle start. Excellent chocolate malt flavor at the finish. Didn't detect any pepper. The gravity is well hidden. Tongue slightly tingles after some time. Not in your face but balanced well. Overall - this beer is fantastic.

This draft brew from a restaurant poured a head of foamy with a frothy top finely sized light brown colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark black brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The nice aroma was malty toasted malt chocolate dark malt and toffee. The crisp mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish with a mild vinous aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of roasted malt cloves toffee vinous mild spice toasted malt chocolate brown malt dark malt and hops. A wonderful best in class brew.

Thanks Kbudd19. Pour is black with a brown head. Aroma is peppers, vanilla, cocoa, coffee bitterness. Taste is a blend of flavors that quickly explode across your taste buds. I taste the cocoa, feel the heat, little sweetness of vanilla, little bitterness from the coffee. Alcohol is not tasted but felt at the end. The heat gains as it warms

Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is opaque black (flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately to heavily malty (coffee, roasted grain, dark chocolate), with notes of vegetables (chiles, green onions), alcohol, vanilla. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, oily/syrupy/velvety texture, lively carbonation, heavily alcoholic/burning. A crude, mediocre rendition, unfortunately. The first obvious problem is the chile peppers, for two reasons: (1) the vegetal odor they impart, and (2) for a beer already throat-burning due to high alcohol, why would you want to add more throat burn with chile heat? The coffee is pleasant at least, but apart from that and the expected choco-vanilla notes, there really isnít much more to it. I spent a while with this, hoping something would open up underneath the primary aromas, but nothing ever did. The chiles donít take it all the way into "unpleasant" territory, but thereís just not that much here to entice, it just seems kind of simple despite all the adjuncts used (or perhaps a better way to put it is that there isnít much underneath the adjuncts, which are all pretty obvious). In the mouth, things arenít much better...itís very sweet and very burning, and fairly syrupy as well. The only place it truly shines is in the appearance department, where true first-pour opacity combined with a lasting head give it a perfect score for a stout.

On tap at Barley Brothers in Winnipeg. Super dark and velvety. Coffee and chocolate with a creamy texture and fantastic depth. One of my favourites of all time.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2015 Found this delicious beer on our road trip upstate. Prairie Bomb has it all. Delicious coffee and chocolate perfection with a kick of chili pepper in the back of the throat. Enjoy!

Bottle shared by Douglas. Big thanks! A: Opaque black, ring of mocha head, and legs. N: Char, cocoa, coffee/espresso, vanilla, black olive, big smoke and char, a touch of the chili peppers, some soy sauce, and cinnamon. T: Spicy, very sweet, neither bitter nor cloying. M: Oily, thick body, fizzy carbonation, hidden alcohol. O: This is balanced and very pleasing. I think they did an excellent job of integrating the spice level, in particular. Not quite as over the top as Hunahpuís, but a damn fine specimen nonetheless.
