4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"What starts out smelling like a good black ipa has a little more hidden under the surface. All citrus peel and dark roast at first, then juuust a little underlying funk which comes out more as it warms. The body is nice and hides the abv well. Flavor is more balanced between Saison like qualities, citrusy bitter hops and coffee. Another wonderful beer by Prairie - just wish they were a bit more reasonably priced."

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared. Pours near black/dark brown with beige head. Aroma of major Brett funk, sour milk, elastaplast, tart dark fruits. Just comes across infected. Flavor is moderate sweet, light to moderate acidic. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Not good, just seems infected.

Funky aroma. Thick creamy tan head. Clear black pour. Bitter and slightly sour at the same time. Not bad.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle thanks to Darrel, after drinking it I do not know if I should be thanking though. It exploded once opened. Tasted like band-aid and smoke. Could not finish my sample.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Got this from a midwest trading partner. Popped the top and immediately started to erupt. Nose was acetone and band aids. Flavor matched the nose. Drain poured by all.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle thanks to Darrel. Pours out black topped with a tan head. Nose is bandaid medicine cabinet roast and smoke. Taste is as the nose with lots of bandaid medicine cabinet roast malts smoke. This thing popped like mad blowing all over the place. Infected???

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is black with tons of cardboard colored head with tons of lacing. Nose is sweet and hoppy with light notes of dark malt and a touch of farmy yeast. Taste is interesting, body is very light an airy with softer carbonation. Taste has less bright hops, darker malts and lightly roasted up front. A hint sweet and a touch of farmhouse yeast, citrus hops and a touch herbal through a lightly bitter finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Like the hop profile but getting smokey malt here with a little bit of funky yeast. The smoke is killing the otherwise really nice hop profile. Shared by atlaggie.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ridiculously deep and dark brown coloured body with a nice, perfectly microfoamed, three centimetre tall light brown head. Aroma of brett, sour milk, grapes, wax, bread, yeast, hay, grass and a bit of light hops - not much though. Medium-bodied; Assertive spicey yeast character at first with a lot of breadiness, some sour notes, hints of grapes and and astringent bitterness at first with a great deal of floral hops, hay and grass kicking in on the finish. Aftertaste shows some depth with the yeast and bread flavours hitting the hardest and a little nuttiness and a definite earthiness and dry flavour finishing it all off. Overall, an interesting and complex beer, but nothing too great in any of the dimensions for it to be a great beer nor one worth searching out for to spend a lot of money. I get hype on some beers and breweries, but I just let a specific beer (without a label) stand up on its own, and this one is average at best, period. I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased from Small Batch Liquors in Denver, Colorado on 07-June-2014 for US$7.99 sampled at home in Washington on 24-July-2014.
