Chocolate aroma. Small dark brown head. Initial taste of coffee and alcohol with a strong chocolate aftertaste. Truly one of the best beers I have ever had.

Wow this is an absolutely amazing imperial stout! I love Prairie Bomb, but this just really amps that beer up big time! Be sure to start the beer at about 45 degrees and sip on it for a half hour or so and enjoy all the changes and complexities in flavor that come out. Coffee, Chocolate, Rum, Cocoa, chilies, vanilla and oak. Phenomenal brew! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Look at the ratings, what else can I say? Slightly smoother than Bomb, but not sweeter per se. That could be it’s only knock--for me--is that I really liked the aggressiveness of the Bomb. But that just being nit picky on a stellar brew.

Pours dark brown with a minimal head. Smells of chocolate and coffee, so it’s no wonder that those both dominate the initial taste. The alcohol and vanilla begin to appear, followed by a perfect amount of heat from the chilies. Nice mouth, but not as oily as I would have expected. This is an absolutely wonderful, memorable beer.

Holy schnikes, Batman! 12 oz bottle split with my wife into 2 snifters. Green wax, first batch. Pour is very dark brown with that middle dark Abercrombie kind of khaki colored head. Primarily opaque with mild translucency around the glass edge. First smell at roughly 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Wow. Like an adult Mounds candy bar with coffee added. Lots of coconut, cacao, dark chocolate, mild toffee, sweet rum, bold and acidic coffee. Decadent. Taste is beyond delicious. All the Aromatic notes blossom into a really well balanced flavor profile. Rum is first and last, but it never overwhelms. Raisin, bitter coffee, salted caramel, dark chocolate, Light barrel character, light chili pepper, and a great sweet vs bitter interplay comprise the taste. Palate is filling but slightly thin for what I’d expect. A bit of burn sets in, but it’s chili-based. As it warms it becomes nearly sublime. If I had dreamed of this before tasting it, I wouldn’t and couldn’t have imagined it tasting much better. Well done Prairie!

Bottle. Poured a dark brown color with an off white head. This sums it up -> WOW. This is one fantastic beer. Vanilla, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, and just all around goodness. Alcohol content hidden. WOW.

At big Seth’s going away party on 11/2/2013; was an awesome day! Pours black with gray cream head. Aroma is smooth roasted malt, toasted smooth, beautiful soft rum and chocolate notes, that meld together in a perfect way. Taste is fuck yeah, beautiful roasted malt, soft complex toasted malt, a hint of rum barrel. The flavors blend together into a complex arrangement of fantastic malty and full flavored notes. Love this shit.

Fresh, this beer is quite possibly beer of the year. Quite the revelation, a perfect combination of coffee and rum. The rum shines in a sweet way, but not cloying. Even after a couple weeks this started to fade. Drink fresh if a new batch comes out.

Rich bodied, beautiful and delish. Chocolate, coffee, a little spice, a little vanilla a hint of smoke... very complex and just all around wonderful.
