OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 26, 2013
750ml served n a snifter A - Black as night with 1 finger of mocha colored bubbles. Noticeable retention with specks of lacing. S - Chocolate and whiskey creep out right away, dark and berry fruits, the barrel really starts coming out and addind a sweet rustic, woody character with hints of herbs. Malty alcohol vapors wake up the senses. T - Creamy chocolate, vanilla, whiskey barrel comes in with a wave drying out the sweet chocolate malts, hints of lightly acidic fruit add a perfect touch of tartness. A kiss of alcohol hits the outside edge and laces caramel, vanilla, herbs and roasted malts. Finishes roasty with a hint of fruity alcohol. M - Thick and viscous feel, full dense body, very creamy carbonation, feels the mouth like a milk shake but doesnt overbear. Very different but complex feel, Ive never experienced a mouthfeel like this. The only word that describes it is "decadent". Excellent stout base with careful whiskey barrel roundness. This is an impressive beer. It almost forces you to sip and savor it. Well done Prairie! Serving type: bottle 03-16-2013

dinkle50 (1455) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2017
Jet black pour with a very thin espresso head that fades quick. Aroma is full of chocolate and wood with just a hint of whiskey. Huge mouthfeel, very thick. Taste is sweet, chocolate and whiskey. Very smooth and easy drinking for 11% ABV. The whiskey component of this is very nicely done. Great beer.
