355ml bottle (thx, Rick P.!). Pours an almost black with a weak dark beige head. Aroma is tons of chocolate, with rum and barrel notes. Taste is moderate to high sweet with rum, vanilla and chocolate notes, moderately boozy. I would prefer less sweetness is this, but anyways it is very nice stuff, especially taking into account how much of chocolate in it! weihenweizen (4128) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - SEP 21, 2017

Shared at the Prairie Everything Dark/Kill Your Liver Extravaganza at Jeff’s House on July 1. 12 oz bottle. 2016 vintage. The pour is a nice light black with a thick ring of dark brown head and a lack of lace as it falls away. The aroma is heavy chocolate and rum barrels. There is a light vanilla and a great dark fruitiness to it. Holy lord. The flavor is just as good. The chocolate and rum balance beautifully with a nice vanilla add and a fruitiness that I am surprised with. This is like a rum soaked chocolate with just a touch of spiciness. The mouth feel is medium bodied with a soft carbonation and a lingeringly boozy and spicy chocolate rum. I’m a big fan. 9 4 9 4 17 willisread (3651) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 13, 2017
Bottle from Gambrinus. Pours a thick, viscous black with a tiny, tan head that dissipates quickly. Banana, coconut cream milk chocolate nose. Wow! Tropical chocolate. Creamy chocolate truffle on the palate with some caramel notes. Smooth and almost no alcohol perceived. A winner from prairie! ebone1988 (2126) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2017

Bottle (12 oz), shared with JulienHuxley thanks! Pitch black with a small brown-beige head leaving little lacing. Aroma is intense with vanilla, roasted malts, rum spiciness, alcohol, chocolate and toffee/caramel. Taste is sweet but the loads of flavors balances it nicely with chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, rum spiciness, toffee/caramel, alcohol and oak. Full body. Moderate carbonation. Thick mouthfeel. Roasted malts, vanilla and caramel finish. Good strong RIS where the rum spiciness blends really well with the thick and flavorful Prairie Pirate stout base. Tasty! charule (2298) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2017
