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.

Salmoniform (575) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Dark opaque hue with a creamy tan head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is chocolate, oak, coffee, roast, vanilla. Mouthfeel is nice with a full body and creamy carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness initially with an astringent bitterness in the following and an oak tannin finish. Overall this is a nice brew.

Pours black with a bit of tan head. Nose is roast, woody, booze, cereal grains. Taste is tons of cereal grains, oats, wood, bakers chocolate, hint of coffee. Mouthfeel on the thin side for a big stout, alcohol hidden well. Overall it's good, lots of oatmeal and drinkable, but not blowing my mind or anything. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GreatDane1632 (363) - Louisiana, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Rated from notes taken on 1 Jun 2014 -- Did a side-by-side tasting of Regular, Coffee, and Vanilla Noir’s. This is an awesome brew. Very hard to decide between this and the Coffee as my second favorite. The vanilla is better by a hair.

BlowOffTube (461) - Michigan, USA - JUL 15, 2014
I love barrel aged beers but this one didn’t do it for me. Over carbonated with a barrel taste that was mode tree bark hint of bourbon. Some vanilla chocolate but not enough. Black motor oil pour.
