It’s starting to get really cold, which makes it officially stout weather. Here we go…
Style: American Double/Imperial Stout
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Prairie Artisan Ales is small third wave brewery from Oklahoma. Since our founding in 2012, we have brought a unique perspective to brewing. Sometimes that means big bold barrel aged stouts and other times it means super crisp and funky farmhouse ales. Every beer we brew is wrapped in unique, expressive, and interesting art. The experience is unlike any other you can find in beer.”
Random: Whenever it rains, my right ankle starts throbbing. Thanks all those years of hockey and softball.
The beer poured with a one finger, light brown head on top of a black body. Due to the color of the beer, I couldn’t see any carbonation. The nose started with all of the expected Christmas spices. I specifically noted cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves. The roasted malts came through next with some black coffee. The taste was much of the same. The Christmas spices were the star of the show with lots of clove, ginger, nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon. Coffee, roasted malts and some smoke came through at the end of the sip. The alcohol was really well-hidden, but warmed the back of my throat. The body was thick and chewy with light carbonation. It had a lengthy and silky finish with Christmas spices. A bottle of this was $9.99, which came to $.83 per ounce. I enjoyed this beer a lot and with that high of a price tag, it’s definitely a special occasion beer.
