11.2oz bottle from Windsor Hy-Vee, in a Sam Smith pint glass. Powerful aroma of dark roast coffee with some caramel and hints of brown sugar and vanilla. Pours campfire coffeepot black with traces of effervescence on the bottom and a little ring of foam around the edge. Mild coffee roast right up front followed by a nice light chocolate semi-sweetness, with the coffee roast reasserting itself for a lightly sweet, roasty finish. Surprisingly light and easy to drink in spite of several warning flags suggesting the opposite. Light- to medium-bodied with more than adequate carbonation and a very light mouth-coating sweetness. A satisfying brew. Based on the look and smell of it, I expected it to be flat and over-roasty but neither one proved to be the case. Not as complex as I might have liked, and I'm a little disappointed the spaghetti didn't assert more of an influence, even if I feel silly saying those words. Very good anyway. Thanks Brewfist & PAA!

Bottiglia 33 cl avec une belle étiquette "western". Liquide noir, huileux, petite mousse brune. Nez : un peu fumé avec des senteurs de fruits noirs, de noisette, du bois, du tabac, du chocolat. Bouche plutôt plate mais aux bonnes saveurs de café, de chocolat, de bois, quelques épices. Une petite carbonatation et une finale amère (chocolat) assez vive. Buono.

Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de dos dedos de grosor y escasa retención. Carbonatación suave. Textura entre oleosa y cremosa. Chocolate, mucho café y vainilla en nariz. Recuerdos de algo especiado. Alcohol prominente en aroma. Me recuerda mínimamente al alcohol de un vodka, ese tipo de alcohol que al olerlo es como si te quemase las fosas nasales momentaneamente. A medida que reposa, el alcohol empieza a desdibujarse y gana presencia el grano de café. No es para tanto, quizá sea un poco exagerado. Mucho chocolate y café en boca, algo de melaza. Quizá excesivo café, pero me gusta el café. También vainilla. Final ligeramente licoroso y con buena fusión de chocolate y café. Chocolate, vainilla y café en postgusto.

Pours black with a thin head that quickly disappears, Aroma is coffee and chocolate, in that order. Taste is dark chocolate, giving way to espresso. Finish is creamy coffee. A very good straightforward chocolate/coffee stout. Very drinkable.

This Brewfist/Prairie collaboration doesn't have a lot of alcohol (for a modern Imperial Stout) but it makes up for it in attitude. Spaghetti Western pours black and has a lovely burnt cream head. This brew has notes of charred grain, bitter chocolate, dark roast coffee, tobacco, and woody booze barrel on the nose and palate alike. This isn't one for hedonists - it's rather bitter. Still, it's a great balance with a rich, full-bodied feel. Overall, very nice.
