theisti (3237) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JAN 28, 2014
500 ml waxed and capped bottle received from my in-laws as a Christmas gift. The pour is a hazed brown, opaque with a small town head. The aroma is cocoa powder sweet along with roast and a soft hint of soy. A bit of the oak wood comes out as the beer warms. The taste is sharp almost acidic bitter roastiness up front, followed by a fruit prune element and then moving towards the cocoa flavors of the nose The beer finishes with warming alcohol. Nicely integrated flavors. The palate is medium to heavy bodied with active carbonation and a bit of an oily slick mouth feel. The alcohol warms, but doesn’t distract. Solid.

Fruitcake in a glass. Glad to taste. Too bad there might be a problem with infection. Smells great. Tastes great. Hope they do this again!

Pours a three-finger cream/beige head that fades slowly to a ring leaving some lace. Deep opaque brown color, ton of yeast left in bottle. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Dark fruit and oak nose. Flavor is dark fruit, oak, vinous grapes; high ABV is mostly hidden. Decent old ale. Pricey at $13.50 for a 500ml bottle from a Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, ME. And first bottle from Oklahoma after 3400 bottles.

brystmar (1257) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Beautiful pour, tons of head and sticky lace. Smells sweet, bready, and syrupy; underlying taste is sweet but there's spikes of sour everywhere. No idea what it wants to be; not good.

ok, wow- this doesn’t feel like a Prairie beer at all! .. pours a deep chestnut .. light head, medium lacing .. . lots of spice and a sharp tartness .. just a mess and not at all what was expected. a very very rare miss from the kreb nation .. . .
I know more about those two losers from the Sonic commercials than I know about my own father.

Bottle... Poured dark brownish with red highlights and a nice forming light, tan head. Nice cherry and acidic lactic notes with mocha coffee and cocoa. Hints of oak and burnt grains with ash and mild oxidation. Dark fruits dominated this one with a nice warming alcohol note.
