Prairie Bomb!

Prairie Bomb14% ABV. Imperial Stout from Prairie Artisan Ales in Krebs, OK. I just had to try this beer after seeing numerous posts on Instagram raving about this beer as well as its high score on beer review sites. I was able to land this little puppy from a fella in Texas who had easy access to Prairie beers. Pours pitch black with a thin tan head that dissipates rather quickly. Aroma of some dark fruit undertones, cocoa nibs, mild coffee, licorice, vanilla, chocolate and some sweet molasses. A sweet aroma which stays in balance and does not become cloying. Taste is savory and has notes of chili pepper, chocolate, dark dried fruits, raw cocoa nibs, licorice, fruity roasted coffee and vanilla. In the aftertaste you get the spiciness from the chilis which blend in nicely with the roastiness of the beer, but there is something missing in terms of complexity as a result of aging and the “fullness” of an imperial stout. Medium bodied with decent carbonation throughout. This was a dangerously drinkable beer with the high alcohol maskable fairly easy! However, I do have to go against the grain here and give this a rather outstanding rating just below excellent as there were several components to this beer that were missing in terms of complexity and being able to provide for a more memorable drinking experience.
