Coconut Vanilla Stout. It’s about to get really hot outside. How about a cold glass of refreshing Imperial Stout. Yep, you heard that right. Brand new to our line up is Prairie Paradise. We took a stout, gave it a hint of vanilla and a good deal of toasted coconut and created one season defying, genre bending brew. Imperial stouts are usually thought of as a cold weather beer, but here the coconut and vanilla blend push the image of the stout into a year round, all season style. Prairie Paradise will be available exclusively on tap and in kegs.

Pours a finger high, brownish tan, creamy head. Thick looking and black as used motor oil with lots of frothy lace patterns. Sweet smells of chocolate cake and faint coconut. Tastes of rich dark chocolate, light coconut, light vanilla, dark chocolate cake, plenty of sweetness and light alcohol barrel notes. Thick with a heavy, creamy mouthfeel. A little punch from the alcohol and sweetness. It’s reminds me of eating my gramma’s coconut cake when I was 5 and I would actually scrape all the coconut icing off the cake. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sample from bottle at Extreme Beerfest, Ralston. Poured black with tan head. Aroma was roasted malt, coconut, vanilla. Taste was light sweet, vanilla, chocolate, coconut.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2018 2 finger frothy, brown head. Pitch black beer.

Aroma is coconut, vanilla, honey, toffee, dark roast coffee, slight nuttiness and some barrel notes.

Taste is lots of toasted coconut, lots of vanilla, melted toffee, charred wood, some coffee, dried dates, hint of soaked raisins and bourbon.

Mouthfeel is semi-thick and oily with a slight stickiness. Medium-low bitterness. High sweetness. Very slight alcohol burn at the back but a bourbon flavoured one. Medium-low carbonation.

Overall: I heard Prairie possessed a mastery in making Impys, so I had to try for myself. As far as coconut in Impys go, this is pretty much borderline balanced before it gets too artificial and sweet. I love coconut but it should remain subtle in my Imps. Still, a great beer that nails most things. Not even barrel aged but has a pretty big barrel note, that's impressive. Not a big alcohol note at 13% ABV, well done. Some more stouts by Prairie coming up and they had a good start!

A 12 fl. oz. bottle with a Julian botted on date of (not clear, but I believe) 22917, meaning it was bottled on 17th August 2017. Poured into a snifter glass. It was black in colour with about half a finger brown head that dissipates quickly and left only sparse spotty lacing. Aromas of chocolate, toasted coconut, vanilla with a touch of molasses and light roasted malts. Tastes of chocolate and roasted malts followed by a boozy sweet bourbon kick before calming down with vanilla, coconut and licorice. Creamy, medium to full bodied with low carbonation and some boozy kick. Overall, I had a bottle a few weeks ago that was aged about a year that seemed to have much more coconut than I’m getting in this bottle, that has been bottled for about 6 months. This was not a bad bottle by any means, but for some reason, there is just less coconut than I remember, and that was something that I liked about it before.

Bottle from Delhi Liquors. Pours darkest brown with no head. Aroma of malt, chocolate and booze. Malt and booze flavor with slight coconut before a boozy finish.

DavidSvinth (448) - DENMARK - FEB 14, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2018 Tap @ BierCab Barcelona. Sort med brunt skum. Sød aroma af malt, kaffe og kokus. Blød i munden og med fuld krop. Smooth og hverken særlig sød eller bitter. Vellykket!
