On draft at Hop Cat. Pours the color of black coffee with little head, very mild carbonation and almost syrupy mouthfeel but not too viscous. Strong coffee and vanilla aroma. Sweet coffee and cacao flavor initially, rounds out with bitter coffee grounds. Honestly, this is a fantastic beer and dangerously smooth and drinkable at 13%abv. However, if innovation were a scale, it wouldnt score as high in my book - these flavors have been done before; Prairie just does them extremely well.

W aromacie kakao, sporo wanilii, dość mocno zaznaczone papryczki (mi te papryczki tu nie zagrały do końca, ale dodatek ciekawy), na drugim planie kawa, czekolada i paloność. W smaku sporo mlecznej czekolady, więcej kawy, niż zapowiadałby aromat, papryczki schowane, wychodzą dopiero po paru łykach w posmaku. Dodatki bardzo dobrze się tu komponują (może poza tymi anchos w zapachu), jeden z najlepszych RIS-w bez leżakowania w beczce.

Bottled 355ml. -Courtesy of and shared with Marko, thanks. Pitch black, small to medium sized brown head, chocolate and whiff of chili in the nose. Chocolate mousse with notes of chili, vanilla and dry coffee. Some wood presence with mild chili burn in the finish. Well balanced and enjoyable brew, so far the best of my 2017 beer ratings.

Quite a fun imperial stout, mischievous without being mean, spicy without being hot. Pours a viscous, deep black with little head, and the aroma offers up chocolate and coffee and a little vinous dark fruit underneath. Taste hits you with normal impy stout massiveness at first, thick and roasty and heavy, dark chocolate on licorice on bitter coffee with a mild fig-raisin back end. The coffee perks up right around the same time as the vanilla, creating a bold yet smooth sweetness that remains dry thanks to the hop-laced java bitterness. Anchos are the key, though: vegetal pepper rounds ouf the middle of the beer, and a mild but tangible Scoville kick makes the fade a fun little shindig. Finds a wonderful balance between dry, sweet, and spicy. Friggin awesome, in other words.

Noform (73) - Tarnowskie Gry, POLAND - FEB 24, 2017
Cż nie tego sie troszkę spodziewałem ale jest dobrze całkiem. W zapachu czuć już świeże papryczki chili ktre nie są za ostre na języku. Czuć też kawę i czekoladę. W smaku brakuje mi czegoś. Ciało mogło by być zdecydowanie wyższe ale wodniste nie jest. Oglnie jest spoko ale troszkę się zawiodłem bo liczyłem na urwanie

CanIHave4Beers (4183) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - FEB 22, 2017
A bottle brought from the cellar to the living room. Unwaxed & Not dated, I have reason to believe that this bottle is from the 2nd batch sent to Iowa (first batch being gold wax) putting this at possibly close to 3 years old, or maybe its not. Fun to speculate though.


Pours inky black with a medium sized brown head.

The aroma is very chocolaty but still retains some cinnamon and hot pepper aroma. Sweet smelling with some espresso like roastiness.

The flavor is big, rich & sweet with a lot of vanilla & fudgey chocolate. Surprisingly light on booziness & decidedly "less sweet" than many other batches of this beer. The hot pepper thing is very noticeable but also is a bit of an afterthought. Just stupidly rich and layered with more dark chocolate bitterness & coffee coming out as it opens up..
I love this beer & this particular bottle (however old it may or may not be is pretty indicative of everything about it that I like.
