Prairie Noir is our bourbon barrel aged imperial oatmeal stout. We brew this beer with a huge amount of oats to give it an ever so silky mouth feel. Notes of coffee, chocolate, and toasted marshmallow can be found in the flavor and aroma of this beer. Notes of whiskey and carmel are also packed into this beer. 2014 and Before : ABV 9% 2015 Bottles: ABV 11%

Bottle from HEB Pearland. Poured into teku glass. Appearance is a dark black with no to little head. Aroma is of booze and malt. Tastes right off the bat with heavy malt that tastes of chocolate and roasted coffee then dissapates into a nice taste of the oak then you get the bite from the whiskey and leaves your tongue with a taste of maple syrup. All I got to say is damn son, prairie is bout it, bout it.

Mad love going out to Willrunforbeer, on this share, mad pimping! Pitch black color with sticky legs of lace on the glass. Aroma is deep dark roasted grains, coffee beans, cocoa nibs and a mild note worthy bourbon.

The mouthfeel is correct for the style, nice full and creamy texture. I feel like everybody should use oats when they brew imperial stouts. Really helps give that dense feeling. Deep layers of roast with a mild easy whiskey finish. Gosh, damn.. Real nice stuff! Love this.

furthur (540) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle, black beer, dark walnut colored head fades to a ring. Aroma is raisin and plum, vanilla, whiskey, oak, cookies, chocolate. Taste is creme brûlée , cookies, caramel, coffee. Palate is rich and thick, carbonation subdued. Finish is coffee and hops and oak, almost dry, but not really. This is pretty sweet, and lots of whiskey barrel there, but as a desert, it’s really got a nice balance and flavor progression.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Errl. The beer is a dark brown to black color with a khaki head of foam. The aroma has a nice, toasted marshmallow note to it that just takes this beer to the next level for me. There is a lot of char character and coffee and caramel as well. Hints at coconut, too. This beer blew me away. Thick, viscous mouthfeel with low to medium carbonation.

sebletitje (8116) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2015
Bottle @ Drink Rich’s American beer, thanks to Omgrich. Brune foncée, col fin blanc-cassé, doré au verre. Arôme est malté, chocolaté, légère effluve de vanille en rétro mais restant assez minimaliste. Palais est malté, chocolat avec un côté oxydé qui dénature le caractère original de la bière. Vanille reste très discrète avec un renforcement du whisky. Le tout est chaud et l’alcool perce bien.

BeerRenter76 (426) - Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Espresso brown, almost black, body with a creamy tan head. Soft and rounded flavors for an Imperial stout. Milk chocolate, espresso, charred sugar, vanilla, mild herbal bitterness. The whiskey barrel treatment is fairly subtle, background woodiness, creme brulee, molasses, and a whiskey finish. Satisfying mouthfeel without an overly sweet finish. This is a well put together beer. Rich flavors, good balance, the barrel is integrated well. Not quite as aggressive as other big barrel aged stouts.
