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.

Sampled at ESBLS. Thanks Levi. Very dark, almost black. A beige ring. An aggressive flavor of roasted notes with coffee. I don’t taste wood but do taste whiskey. Some vanilla. A really good beer. Gobs of malts.

Dogbrick (9818) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Brownish-black pour with a medium light brown head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Roasted malt, coffee and oak in the nose. Medium to full body with flavors of roast coffee, oaky vanilla and chocolate. The finish is roasted malt and subtle bourbon, Good beer all around.

Overall a solid beer. Roasty, chocolaty, stout. Light vanilla and espresso notes. Very little barrel. More of a imperial stout than a ba stout. 85/100

In my opinion Prairie is the most overated beer in history. Their Bomb is less than that. However, their Noir is making me reconsider this notion. Cofffee hue. Espresso aroma. Lacy head. Vanilla bits and a lingering taste of nutmeg. Definitely feels like a seasonal, meant for Winter. Sweet wash down, There is booze but the balance between sweet and bitter is perfect. Try. Drink. Repeat.

Bottle. Aroma is chocolate, whiskey, and coffee. Appearance is black with a thin light brown head. Good lacing. Taste is milk chocolate, caramel, vanilla, bourbon, coffee, and toast. Full bodied with a creamy texture and low carbonation. Overall very nice. Not too heavy on the bourbon.

Jack is back tasting at Bruce’s. Jack is back and brought this with him. Thanks Jack. Opaque dark brown beer, decent tan head. Palate is softish and airy, slightly dry with fine carbonation. Smooth airy dark malt. Brett and dark fruits. Little malt roast in the finish. Not bad.

Leighton (14746) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2014
Bottle shared in London - thanks, Jack. Pours clearish brown with a frothy tan head. The aroma has some tangy dark berries, a bit of cocoa. Medium sweet flavor with chalky cocoa, earthy bitterness, some tobacco, faint tangy dark fruits, slight basement. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderate sweetness to finish, more dry cocoa, burnt earth bitterness. Eh. So so.

Scopey (9771) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2014
Bottle thanks Jack. It pours jet black with a medium tan head. The nose is earthy, manure, funky, cocoa, rocky road, light vanilla, marshmallow and toast. The taste is roasty, toasty, earth, treacle, tang, oak, burnt notes, plastic, light spice, some acidity and light alcohol with a dry finish. Full ism body and fine carbonation. A bit acidic, ashy and rough. OK at best.

Sour(?) slightly sweet candyish aroma. Black with a thick foamy dark tan head which fades very slowly coating the sides of the glass. Coffee, toffee, bitter, roasty with a glassy smooth finish. A little warming in the throat at the end.
