COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

kbudd19 (720) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle shared by Ferris at RBAG. Thick black pour with a light layer of mocha head. Aroma is roasted malts, oak, and a hint of bourbon. Taste is fairly toasty, some nice roast, a bit bland and not much barrel.

Thanks to joedevivre for the share. Dark brown pour. Chocolate and bourbon dominant nose and taste. Some char and roasted malts in the flavor as well. Excellent balance between barrel, booze, and sweetness. Excellent.

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color ale with a nice large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of deep black chocolate notes with some light bourbon notes is quite interesting. Taste is a mix between some vanilla and bourbon notes mix in with some sweet black chocolate notes. Body is full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well brewed stout but I was expecting flavours to shine through even more so.

12oz bottle to snifter. Dark pour. Lovely head. Smooth mouth feel from the oats. Nothing over the top. Subtle barrel. Very smooth and drinkable.

 Solid whiskey barrel stout. The base is solid, but seems to have oxidized quite a bit in the span of only half a year. The barrels could be bringing a better contribution in my opinion. But this is certainly not a bad or offensive stout by any means.
