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

12oz bottle. Dark motor oil pour. Whiskey vanilla mostly on the nose. This is amazing, lots of vanilla but not too much. So well balanced, so delicious.

Pours a very dark brown with very little head. The nose is pretty whiskey heavy actually, with a bit of oak, chocolate and of course, vanilla. Taste is pretty complex, with the vanilla really shining through in the middle of a sip. Again, chocolate, whiskey, vanilla and a nice alcohol burn.

dinkle50 (1447) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 1, 2017
Jet black pour with a very thin espresso colored head, which faded quickly. Aroma is full of whiskey, chocolate and vanilla. Aroma is a bit like rum butter ice cream. Full mouth, thick and viscous. Taste is full of vanilla that just lingers in your mouth with hints of chocolate and whiskey. Just loads of vanilla, not too sweet. Slight alcohol burn. Amazing beer.

SG111 (1656) - New York, USA - FEB 27, 2017
Bottled at Clubhouse BFD event. Pours black, tan head. Aroma is very sweet vanilla milkshake notes, with some bourbon, and even more vanilla. Its thick. Flavor is vanilla, creamy notes, chocolate, a little roasty, some bourbon, and toffee. Super creamy. Thick vanilla milkshake drink. Barely even beer at that point. Just like a vanilla chocolate milkshake. Very good.

Taste has a very nice depth with loads of caramel and oak along with muscovado sugar and some burnt notes and vanilla. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a nice smoothness. Some alcohol burn.

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.
