Vanilla Noir is Prairie Noir aged on organic, fair trade vanilla beans, and lets just say it takes a lot of beans! The vanilla flavor compliments the whiskey barrel aging process and adds a delicious layer to the beer.

Once again, I want to like Prairie not only because they're literally in my backyard, have amazing artwork, and dish out new brews constantly...but damn it Prairie, please venture out a bit further. It's like you have one saison and one stout that you just vary ingredients or barrels on just enough to market it as a new brew. Give us a pale, white, IPA, red, SOMETHING! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tmoney99 (13892) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2017
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate, coffee, vanilla and alcohol aroma. Heavy dark sweet toasted dark chocolate malt flavor with a heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.

CanIHave4Beers (4136) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JAN 14, 2017
On Draught
Pours black with a big tan head and lots of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is vanilla bean and chocolate cake baking in the oven. Rich & sweet, inviting to say the least.

The flavor is sweet & rich loads of chocolate, vanilla bean, toffee, & maple. Nicely roasty with a mild espresso like bitterness and a pleasant warming booziness.
Delicious dessert beer

Aroma has a high level of vanilla extract alcohol quality. Background is milk chocolate. Flavor is surprisingly dark/roasty grain that is borderline astringent. Aftertaste is mostly roast with mild chocolate and vanilla. Roast is far more dominant than any vanilla qualities.

marcus (9537) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 25, 2016
Bottle from Cap Tap. Pours dark brown with a transient light brown head and a treacle and whiskey aroma. There is a sweet dark molasses flavor with a hefty dose of vanilla and slight fruitiness. Warm alcohol trail that leaves whiskey on the palate. A nice sipper.

Travlr (22435) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Bottle. Clear dark brown color, brown head. Vanilla aroma up front with chocolate, caramel, whiskey. Vanilla overwhelms all in the taste, even the whiskey. Interesting.

December 16, 2016 - bottle from AV3. Black pour with limited head. Aroma was vanilla, chocolate and whiskey. Taste was consistent with the aroma, but maybe a touch too sweet.

coreyc1221 (314) - Truckee, California, USA - DEC 15, 2016
Super sweet prune and vanilla aroma. Black as my soul body with thin tan head. Nice and syrup. Tastes like cookies and wine. Straight up. Delicious.

rouhlas (2941) - GREECE - APR 27, 2016
355 ml bottle at home from trade with RobertDale. Thank you Bob! Dark brown almost black color with nice beige brown head. Aroma is roasted malty, full of vanilla, cocoa, some licorice, chocolate, caramel, light wood, some smoked notes when it gets quite warm. Heavy sweet and light bitter taste like aroma. Medium to full silky oily body with soft carbonation.
