Prairie Bomb! is a very aptly named concoction. The quite amazing complexity exhibited in this specialty Imperial Stout delivers a massive explosion of delicious flavors and aromas that linger in the memory well after the drinking is done. This deep black-colored opaque brew with a moderately lingering tan head has a cappuccino-like aroma of coffee and chocolate with a peppery, fruity flavor in the background.

Drinking this brew is akin to drinking a chili chocolate coffee milkshake with a huge, thick and chewy body. A moderate vanilla flavor marries well with all of the flavors present throughout sampling. There is a touch of heat in the middle and finish, along with a moderate alcohol warmth, delivering layered mouthfeel factors to the equation. Incredibly, with all that is going on in this brew, there is an amazing marriage of flavors that add up synergistically. Truly, this is a meal in a bottle!

This is an incredibly complex and well-made beer that would be a fantastic choice for finishing off a hearty meal, or for just lounging around by the fire. This massive brew is definitely “Da Bomb!" Highly recommended!
