750 ml bottle shared, its ok, just thick and ashy with some of the vanilla from the barrels. Prairie sucks at stouts and I dont know why they have such a following, below average.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Petrol Station, Houston tap: Pours black with a brownish head. Aroma is light whiskey barrel and oak coupled with chocolate and coffee, roasted malts and sugar. Taste is at first more whiskey, but as you keep drinking the sweet chocolate flavors start to come out in fuller force. Well-balanced and easy drinking. Tasty.

12 iz bottle poured thick molasses black. Little carbonation and tan head with minimal lacing. Nose is bourbon and coffee with tastes that are similar with elements of dark chocolate. The boozy whisky bite hits late in the drink. Very drinkable barrel aged brew.

Bottle thanks to Bob. Pours a dark brown with beige head that lasts awhile. The aroma is roast, marshmellow and chocolate. Medium mouthfeel with strong roast and light oak and nuttiness. Really enjoyed this one!

Pours black, finger tan head.
Smell is peaty, more whisky than bourbon, red fruit and really light roast
Taste is big peaty oak and whisky, very one dimensional
I didn’t really enjoy drinking this, sort of a let down since Bomb is so good

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black pour with a tan head. The aroma has a ton of chocolate as well as a bit of wood and whiskey. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of chocolate and roasted malt as well as a bit of charred malt. There is a bit of oak and some nice whiskey character. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice beer.
